Re: Spare battery for Lidl drill

Amazon in Germany have it. Could you buy through them? Would they deliver to Greece? Also ebay has it and will ship to Greece

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...

Re: Ryanair departure gate

I think the airline acts as the point of contact for both legs, Filippos, and passes information on to the relevant section at the airport. I've never made use of the facility so I don't know for sure. I know somebody who did need help and forgot to include a request for it when booking. They subseq...

Re: Car tax for 2018

I've not seen any figures quoted yet. I have not seen any reports of them being increased, so probably the same, but we will know for certain when the web site is live for 2018 in a couple of weeks or so.

Re: Flamethrower

I hate to see a woman slaving away so whenever I was faced with the problem I used to go to sleep. Warwick PS Foteinakis have a web site , Greek and English, but it doesn't give details of products. It does have a contact form, bottom right, so you could ask them if they have the item you want. Poss...

Re: Paying for Renovations

Further relaxation of the capital controls has been announced, see this ekathimerini article . The restrictions on opening a new bank account have been relaxed, provided the person does not already have an account with another bank, so that should help anybody coming here for the first time. Also yo...

Re: Ryanair departure gate

You can also turn pages on a desktop PC by putting the cursor at bottom/top right, pressing and holding left click and dragging to the left just like using a finger to turn a page. I would guess on a tablet/smart phone that it works by swiping left. Usually you can arrange special assistance as part...

Re: Flamethrower

Assuming you mean a long handled gas burner for burning weeds, I have no idea where to get one in Chania. Possibly Schetakis or Foteinakis . There are two Foteinakis shops within about 50 m of each other. Probably best to try the big yellow one first. If they don't have one then they might know wher...

Re: Key ring torch

If you see them advertised online they are usually described as "φακός LED". One on a keyring would be described as "φακός μπρελόκ LED". For example this one from e-shop . You can order online and pick up from the e-shop delivery depot on Anagnostou Gogoni. It is not a shop, you ...

Re: Mesh cover for pool closing...

My immediate neighbour keeps his running and keeps using chlorine tablets but at a much lower rate than in the summer. Another neighbour just leaves theirs full to turn into a green pond and then drains, cleans and refills the next spring. A third drains his completely. A fourth has built a low leve...

Re: Earth Tremor

No, but I only notice them if they are big and nearby. 4.4 at the opposite end of the island wouldn't register with me. Warwick PS Incidentally the P- and S- waves are how Earth scientists get measurements of the structure of the Earth. P-waves can pass through both solids and liquids while S-waves ...

Re: Comedic DVDs

I don't find Mickey Flanagan exceptionally funny, probably below average. Peter Kay, however, is a very funny comedian. I think sometimes it is the format. I do watch stand-up but it isn't my favourite format. For Peter Kay I would suggest Phoenix Nights , which he co-wrote and played several parts,...

Re: Earth Tremor

Each earthquake event simultaneously generates both P-waves and S-waves but they travel at different speeds so may reach you displaced in time. P- waves are longitudinal, i.e. like sound waves, while S-waves are transverse, i.e. like waves on a string. I guess it is possible that is why you felt two...

Re: Internet Problems

Good solution, Martin. It also completely isolates the router from the mains, improving lightning protection. Obviously it is still vulnerable from the telephone line. I suspect the router actually draws less than 1 A when it is idling with no Internet traffic, which would be the typical condition d...
