Re: Windows 10 Sleep Problem

This morning my desktop PC reverted to normal, going into and waking from sleep mode correctly several times. This evening it has gone back to shutting down mode.

Re: The Will of the People

Most of the people commenting on TV are people with a position. They want no-deal, they want another vote, they want to remain etc. Everything they say is simply a narrative that they think will convince others to their opinion. Those narratives have little if any connection with reality. The UK cur...

Re: The Will of the People

The problem, Maud, is that people in positions of authority are still making statements today that are untrue but voters will still believe whichever statements support their own view. Often they carefully craft words to imply they will do something when they know they cannot do that. As an example ...

Re: Vodafone SMS

Hi Paul

As an experiment I sent an SMS to my son in the UK from my Greek Vodafone mobile. He never received it so it looks like there is a general problem.

Re: Post from the UK

Correct, Andrew. As far as I can tell ELTA does not work Saturdays and Sundays at all, not even back room services. I mentioned it because the UK postal service does work Saturdays and Sundays in the period leading up to Christmas so anybody not actually living in Greece might not realise this, espe...

Re: The Will of the People

It's a pretty normal cycle, Guy. We start with nation states competing with each other. That ends in conflict and ultimately war. The war results in large number of people being killed. Those that fight the war understand the true cost so they try to cooperate rather than compete. That works for a t...

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...
