Re: Dexion or similar shelving

PEBRO- Petroyannis Bros are the official distributors for Dexion in Greece. You could try contacting them to ask if there is an outlet selling it in Crete.

Re: Best places to source DIY products?

The only thing that comes anywhere close is Praktiker and the only store on Crete is in Heraklion. I would use Sketakis or Foteinakis for tools fixings etc, Kafkas for anything electrical, Gavrilakis or Sidal for metalwork, both on the right hand side of Kissamou driving into Chania from Kissamos di...

Re: Costings

It's not quite as bad as it sounds. You say that a gas bottle lasted you one month and I would guess that was a 6kg bottle. That means almost 10 kg of water would be fed into the room in one month so about 330 g per day. Enough to make a noticeable difference. Obviously it isn't uniform because the ...

Re: Costings

The clue is in the name. Propane gas is a hydro carbon. Generally for the combustion of hydro carbons in air the reaction is: hydrocarbon + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water. Specifically for complete combustion of Propane in air: C3H8 + 5O2 → 3CO2 + 4H2O and for incomplete combustion, i.e. badly adju...

Re: Costings

I don't know the relative cost of a gas burner and electric heating here but I would agree with Filippos on the tendency of a gas heater to increase damp. My own experience of halogen heaters is very poor. When working in an unheated screened control room, 2.5 m x 2.5 m x 2 m, in winter in northern ...

Re: Firefox Quantum

Sorry for any confusion, I was referring to the drop-down menu structure at top left. When I was developing software it was often useful to have different methods for accessing a feature BUT every feature was always accessible from the drop down menu. I thought I had hit another problem with the new...

The article linked by Steven says that they will be the same as last year in 2018 but that they will change in 2019.

Re: Firefox Quantum

I also use an SSD for Windows and all programmes and a conventional hard drive for files, Alyn. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't complaining about the speed. Some sites are almost always quick. Some have a strong tendency to be slow. Some, like LiC, vary between the two. I can't really see an obvious di...

Firefox Quantum

Has everybody got their latest Firefox up date, i.e. Firefox Quantum? Supposed to be much faster? Has anybody told them that the main delays are caused by the web sites being downloaded not by the browser itself. I can't see any difference. I have never been opposed to change but change that doesn't...

Re: Flamethrower

A long time ago I went to a talk on gardening at Cretan Corner in Aptera. I can't remember the name of the person who gave the talk but one of the questions was about getting rid of Oxalis. He said that it was virtually impossible to get rid of but the best solution was to repeatedly run over it wit...

Re: Terrible flood disaster in Athens

While I wouldn't say that it happens every year it is pretty common for this type of flooding to happen somewhere in Athens around this time of year. The rain seems to come in heavy storms which often deposit excessively high volumes of rainfall in relatively small areas in a very short time. When i...
