    Any rumors on when you can fire people again in Arg?

    I'm asking for a friend... ;) Due to the pandemic, there is--apparently--a law that you're not allowed to fire anyone anymore in Arg, at least for all practical purposes. (Is my understanding correct?) To the lawyers and friends here: any news or gossip on if/when they may wind this back and...

    Law on wearing masks outside?

    Hey all :) I want to install a little network on a wifi connection -- network backup storage, and a few other bells and whistles -- and I'm wondering if anyone knows an expert in these issues who does this professionally on a freelance basis, in BA.

    Seeking Tutor For Making Videos

    Hey everyone! I think it would be fun (and very modern!) to be able to make fun videos. But I have no idea how to go about it, and I'm too busy to delve in to lots of Internet research to figure out the methods, tools, and best practices. My goal is purely for fun - like making little meme...

    I Have An Idea For A Bar, That I Think Will Be Big...

    ...a beer bar. There just aren't enough. Breaking news: the closest beer bar to my house was two blocks away; but one just opened today - just now - on my corner, so now, the closest one is a half-block away. And I don't even live in Palermo, but a super-uncool neighborhood right near the...

    Subte Crowding Levels During Peak Hours

    A question only for those of you who were also in BA ten or more years ago -- Is it me or is the subte slightly LESS crowded now, during peak hours, than it was 10-15 years ago? My main rush hour experience is on the D line so, in particular, that is what I'm referencing - but maybe it's a more...

    Searching For The Perfect Garbage Bag In Ba

    After years in Buenos Aires, I've become disillusioned with every garbage bag I've found. I've been wanting to find just the perfect one for me, and the market here is so competitive, and it's so hard to find just the right one. In fact, as a traditional guy, I've gone out of my way to try to...

    Prices Online Vs Irl

    Random and unimportant question, everyone! I went to buy a new garbage pail. I found one in ML, for 1400 pesos, and they said it can be picked up at a sucursal a few blocks from my house. So I decided to walk over and see it in person, before buying. I did and in the store, it was listed as...
