Help! My Youtube has changed

I am used to the clip display when you first enter YouTube to contain my preferences for Christian Music, Rugby Union, and Motor Racing but today, the clips displayed are totally different and totally irrelevant.

What is the procedure to get my car repaired

I was involved in an accident. The other vehicle was not drivable and was towed away. Everything was done in Greek and I was too shaken to act intelligently. I don't even know the other driver's name. The other driver and me were covered by the same insurance company. I am fully comprehensive. My ca...

Spelt flour and buttermilk

A recipe I want to try includes spelt flour and buttermilk.

Are these available in Crete/Chania?

If so, does anyone know the Greek?

Thanks

Camera on my desktop

I have fitted a camera via USB port to my desktop prior to using Skype. How do I check if it is working?
I expect there is some transaction in Control Center but I can't find it. I am using Windows 7 Professional

Charging my Kindle

The only way I can recharge my Kindle is by connecting it to the USB port of my desktop computer and the charging rate is very slow and it stops charging when the computer goes to sleep due to inactivity. (Currently I play a YouTube video when I need to leave the computer) When connected to my lapto...
