Bus Service To SJD - It seems there is now an express bus that leaves the Todos Santos terminal and goes directly to SJD. It leaves TS at 8:05 a.m., 9:35 a.m. and 11:35 a.m. The cost is 240 pesos and tickets can be purchased one day in advance. The woman at the terminal said it takes 1-1/2 hours.

Biologist Seeks Digital Camera - My name is Enrique de Jesús Ruiz Mondragón, I am a biologist from Sinaloa, currently doing my community service at the Vizcaino Reserve. This winter I am extremely fortunate to be working directly with two endangered species; the borrego cimarrón and the gray whale. So far 75 lambs have been born in the reserve and 1700 (whale) calves were born in the Ojo de Liebre. This experience has changed my life and I am writing to solicit the donation of a digital camera, so I can share this incredible experience with others.

The DNSChanger Virus And The FBI's Internet ShutDown on March 08 - The US Federal Bureau of Investigation, in cooperation with International authorities, conducted Operation Ghost Click, an investigation of who was behind a massive computer virus threat that has commandeered several million infected Macs and Windows computers worldwide over the last few months. The virus changes the DNS (Domain Name Service) settings in your computer to hijack your browser and redirect it to sites that may attempt to sell you products, steal personal information, or infect your computer with other mal ware and viruses. The DNSChanger Virus also disables security updates which further exposes infected computers to other malicious attacks.

To counter the threat, the FBI replaced several infected DNS servers with clean DNS servers. Because the court order permitting the installation of these servers expires on March 8, the FBI may disconnect them this Thursday, blocking millions of infected computers from using the Internet. More information can be found on the FBI's web site and others:


To see if your computer is infected, you may want to check it before March 8th: http://dns-ok.us/. if the image displayed is red, then your computer is infected by the DNSChanger virus. NOTE: This site is intended to detect only the DNSChanger virus. It is not a complete virus scan, and a green image does not mean your computer is free of other viruses. - The Baja Western Onion

Banda Ancha Reception - Has anyone had any expeience with external antennas and amplifiers for Banda Ancha? Also, know the frequency band of Banda Ancha. Hope to install something that will increase our signal strength. Thanks, Jim Smith - Jim Smith, jimsmith853 [- at -] gmail.com, Elias Calles

Internet Options - Trampuchete Pescadero - What are the best options for Internet in the Trampuchete area of Pescadero. We have Hughes.net here in CA. Was wondering if the TelCel banda ancha is an viable/reliable option there, or it Hughes is the way to go. I need a reliable service for work purposes. Are there other options? We don't have a land line phone. bolt71 [- at -] hughes.net

Yoga Instructor Needed! - I am looking for a yoga instructor to come to Villa Santa Cruz near La Pastora beach to give private yoga classes to my parents who will be staying at the Villa Friday, March 9, thru Wednesday, March 14. This would be very gentle yoga; they are active 80 yr-olds. Daily classes during the late morning would be ideal. If you are interested and available for all or most days please email me back at prendergastkit [- at -] gmail.com. - Kit Prendergast, 612-158-3915, Todos Santos

Internet Store And Copy - Great store for Internet use or to fax copies or purchasing papers and pens. I highly recommend you visit here because the price for use is very inexpensive. This store is at the corner of Marquez de Leon and Rangel, just down from Miltar. Name of Store is called El Quijote Multiservicios. lowerbaja [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-161-4728, Todos Santos

No Photo Appeared With Your Announcement? - If you submitted a photo with your announcement and it wasn't included, here's why:
  • The photo was too big. Photos need to be no larger than 250 X 250 pixels (about 3.5"), otherwise they take up too much space.
  • The link was bad. All links need to end in .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, or .PNG or they will not display. Links that end in .HTM, .HTML, or a bunch of numbers won't work.
  • The photo's file size was too large. All photos need to be under 30 KiloBytes in file size, otherwise they take too long to load.
We don't have time to fix too-large photos or bad links so we delete them. We've posted a detailed tutorial online explaining how to correctly add photos to your announcement. You can find it here: www.bajawesternonion.com/how-to-post-photos-with-your-ad-or-article.asp

Of course, if this is too much for you, we can resize, upload and host your photo on the Baja Western Onion web site for only $5.00 US per photo. Be sure to let us know in the "Additional Comments" box when you submit an announcement. Then send the photo by Email to Moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. Be sure to reference your announcement so we know which image goes with which announcement.
