Tech Talk / Re: Disabling Ring doorbell for shabbos
« on: May 03, 2020, 09:10:41 AM »
Seems like after I spent hundreds on getting a Pro and a transformer (with the smart kill switch linked above - itís on Amazon btw for $7) and wiring installed, Ring has added the option to set a schedule for turning off motion sensors. Has anyone tested yet? Does it alone seem to solve all the Shabbos issues?

That's a tiny portion of the cost. Do you think YU weddings are generally cheaper than Yeshivish weddings?
I know. I just stopped at the first 2 line items as I didnít have them. Nope the actually wedding is probably just as expensive, but I certainly didnít have a lot of those non-wedding related costs. I guess you never know what other people are doing but some of those things seemed certainly surprising - Buying furniture? A car?

My world is so different (and Iím sure some of it is my subjective experience), that I canít even start. All Iíll say is Iím lucky to have asked her out on my own and had free Chosson classes at YU (gave a small present).

I wonder if this will have an effect on the amount of tzedaka given out over Purim
Yes, those who invested in CV stocks will be giving lots of Tzeddaka.  ;D

Anyone getting involved with virus-related stocks (mask companies, vaccine/testing pharmaceuticals)? Been a crazy $ week, curious how itíll continue come Monday.

Where would you go for beach villas and just as good service/ambiance/privacy/seclusion that's closer to the US? Not a challenge, curious...
Interested as well. Especially if points can be used.

How common is it to get upgraded to the Atlantic Suite at the ST Regis?
Some people seem to get suites there like they give em away for free, but I have never had such luck.

2. Sat down in Cafe Vert. Waited 10 minutes. No waiter came to table.
Had the exact same experience! Unfortunately. Hard to believe itís possible, but they have even worse service than Cinne Citta (which is where I went afterwards).

Well a most important point about this discussion here. Every restaurant in teaneck I discussed with them about thier business they told me they rely and stay in business with a big percentage of out of towners , especially the high end restaurants there are in business only from out of towners like monsey and monroe customers specifically and all kind of just passbyers or guest from all over and employees and businesses in the area during the day for lunch and early dinner ,one high end restaurant told me many years ago that about 75 percent of his business is from out of town, that's the only reason most restaurants have CY , if not they wouldn't have CY at all
Interesting, could be. Makes sense for the high-end. Not enough locals who eat out at a steakhouse every night. Same for the city - I'm sure most business is not from Manhattanites. But the small pizza places? I dunno... I often recognize enough people in Poppys, EJs, Sammys when I go.

Poppys did renovate
And they don't serve chalav yisroel if you don't ask , not all milky products they have chalav yisroel,
And I think its very wrong for restaurants to have both , its confusing and not possible to mix up
I know that this is kinda of renovated, still looks like a blah pizza place. Didn't know they serve C"Y. Not really necessary for the town they're in, but I agree it can be confusing.
