appallingly bad service - they lied directly to my face. i went to pick up a frame, which was not ready. thinking i could not speak spanish, i guess, they discussed amongst themselves what to do, as they did not have the material necessary. i told them i understood and that i would prefer to wait for the material. they told me not to worry, that i had misunderstood. when i went to collect later, the had subsituted a completely different frame. i realise that there was a cultural mismatch here, and that i should have been smarter, perhaps suggesting an alterantive instead of being direct. but to lie so completely was a real, physical shock. i've lived here for many years and this is, as far as i can remember, the worst service i have ever had.

it's ok, as you know always the medias (chilean tv for example) show just violence, but almost never show the positive things.

so what happened to the dow as it opened? looking at the bbc's delayed summary, it seems like the winners/losers are real time and boa is up 7%.
ah, google seems to have some real-time data http://www.google.com/finance?client=ob&q=INDEXDJX:DJI
