Re: Kalamata to Kissamos Ferry

Yes, unfortunately, the Vincenzo Kornaros which was the ferry for that route was laid up for major repairs for so long this year that the government took the contract from LANE, the route provider. As far as I know, a new contract has been negotiated, and the new ferry "Ionis" is being fit...

Re: Exchange rates

..........and then I woke up from this amazing dream. There's no harm in trying it. It can always be tinkered with, as and when required, just as past economic systems have been. No-one is saying that it will be a success from day one, as Warwick says, he thinks that there will still have to be som...

Re: Exchange rates

Good analysis, Warwick! I'd just like to add the following: Anything can act as money ...or, in fact, 'nothing'. We just all have to agree to do some work - this can be much more flexible than the current system of work - we will all be able to change jobs whenever we like, do something that is our ...

Re: Exchange rates

I guess for some people this may make a major difference in their ability to live comfortably in Crete. But, of course, they would have to factor in the expenses of moving back to the UK, plus the increased living expenses of UK living. Certainly, for us, unless the economic, social and medical bene...

Re: TV / digital Radio

... It states that it was last updated: 01-10-2013, hence my remark that I cannot find up-to-date information. Not a personal attack on the quality of your information Warwick, I was just pointing to the latest information - and considering the state Greece is in, it's likely to stay the latest inf...

Re: TV / digital Radio

Technically a digital radio should work in Greece BUT I am not sure what the situation is regarding digital broadcasts as I cannot find up-to-date information. From - Wikipedia - 02/08/17: There is interest in the DAB family of standards in Greece and, although no services are on air, DAB radios ar...

Re: What to get - New Computer

Ah! What computer to get depends very largely on your budget for it, and any peripherals you might want. Another major issue regards what you want to use it for. Both are interlinked. So, if you name a price, plus have an idea it's function and anything you want to buy with it, we will all be making...

Re: Any comments .

...it's the Express... Is there any more to be said than that? You could add your words of wisdom ? OK - sorry, I assumed that most people would have the same outlook on the tabloids of today. I grew up in a household where only the Express was available, because that was the only daily publication...

Re: Ballot papers

...as one of the last remaining unregulated 'professions', politics does attract its share of the sociopathic and other derangement tendencies, I'm sure. As for the Monster Raving Loony party, I've had a look at their manifesto, and somehow it just doesn't look credible. (and I bet it hasn't been co...

Re: Ballot papers

Going back to the original topic, our ballot papers arrived yesterday, and will be going back today - suitably marked in favour of the 'least worst' party, as usual.

Re: Ballot papers

How many people actually vote on the basis of the manifestos, I wonder?

I'd be very surprised if it wasn't people's entrenched opinions and 'personality' favourites that decided which way people vote.

I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but I'm the pessimistic sort... :-)

Re: English TV channels

I use 'Unlocator' for UK terrestrial channels - it's not a VPN (it uses the DNS system to fool the host into thinking that your IP address is in their 'allowed' zone). Looking at reviews for it today, it doesn't seem to get great reviews - but then, I've been 'in the business' for many years and I k...
