    Just a note to thank you for your solution on “Ask Ubuntu” / Logos–“Work around found in an ubuntu bug report, requires appending a new line to apt.conf.d/70debconf:

    APT::Cache-start 200000000;”
    Worked a treat!

      Thanks much! I’m glad it helped you, and it’s super nice of you to track me down to thank me – you’re a scholar and a gentleman 🙂

    Hi, I am considering moving to Bucerias and would like to find out more information. I have travelled there numerous times so I know the area. Can you help

    Thanks, hoping to hear rom you

      Hello Laine. I’d like to help, but I haven’t lived there for a few years now and so any info I have would be somewhat dated. I’d recommend contacting the expats down there, say through the Yahoo group or the like, and have them fill you in more.
