Re: Post from the UK

I would expect postal staff in Greece to be off on 25 and 26 December and 1 January. Normally they would also be off 6 January but that is a Sunday so they wouldn't be working then anyway. They don't get time in lieu. Equally they won't be working the Saturdays and Sundays leading up to Christmas as...

Windows 10 Sleep Problem

Is anybody else experiencing problems with Windows 10 Version 1803 and Sleep mode. I usually put my PC into Sleep mode when I walk away from it. In case I forget it is set up to automatically go into Sleep mode after 10 minutes of no activity. Very recently it has started shutting down rather that g...

Re: Charging my Kindle

Out of curiosity when you experience these problems does the charging light come on or not? If the light comes on but the Kindle doesn't charge it is most probably a charging problem inside the Kindle. With most devices of this type, phones, tablets etc, the charger just provides a source of power a...

Re: The Will of the People

... the main thing they were virtually crying about and saying was "but we want to travel the world" they don't seem to understand that no one is going to stop them. Obviously they will still be able to travel on holiday but what about work? I realise that "searching for work" i...

Re: Donations to the Needy

I think all Lidls have them. I think some of the other "chains" operate more on a franchise basis so it is possible some franchisees choose to have them and some not.

Re: The Will of the People

Sorry I missed you, Martin. I got there late because the National Highway, especially between the Omalos road and Souda, was a nightmare. I am not psychic in anyway but personally I doubt if the USA has the capability to engineer a new dollar backed by precious metals. It would be wonderful for me i...

Re: The Will of the People

Any nation state has a range of options in how it trades with other nation states. The choice is completely free but each choice comes with consequences. Making a particular choice but expecting not to endure the consequences is madness: 1 You can opt to be a closed country and not trade at all with...

Re: The Will of the People

I would agree that Dominic Raab gave a very good interview on Sophie Ridge as did Dominic Grieve, i.e. from the opposite side. Both were very straightforward. Neither equivocated in any way. You still have to be careful when evaluating these interviews if you do not then try to independently verify ...

Re: Face Card

The 400 minutes for €6.35 is good value provided you use them all. If you talked for that long on Skype dial up it would cost you more. I think the longest you can talk on a single Skype dial up call is 60 minutes so you would have to make at least 6 calls to use 400 minutes. That would cost you jus...

Re: Face Card

Called International Destination Packs. €6.35 per month for 400 minutes to landlines and 100 minutes to mobiles in the UK. It excludes premium rate numbers as you would expect.

Re: Great Overland Trip to the UK

Unfortunately Warwick, Turkey have changed the visa rules recently and we had to get E-Visa @€20 each but it took 5 minutes over the net. I ignored the Turkey part, Mackie, since that was just a side visit. I assumed Guy was interested in the main route from Greece to the UK and my comment was addr...

Ignore him, Bob. He's just drunk too much raki at lunchtime. I'm amazed he's still awake.

Re: Great Overland Trip to the UK

No Visa problems at the moment Guy. All the countries Mackie passed through are in the EU.

How good a car do you judge you need to set off on a 2,000 mile journey? Personally I would want something not too old and pretty reliable.

Re: Face Card

Not really. The descriptions of Skype to Go that I have read are made assuming that you are in the UK but I suppose they might work in other countries. As I understand it, viewed from the UK end, Skype to Go creates a UK landline number that is linked to a single number abroad, e.g. a relative. You ...
