Re: Doors and windows

20 years ago I used Iroko - it obviously cost more than Pine but has proved to have been very well worth the extra money. If I was doing it now, I'd be tempted by the new aluminium shutters etc - they really do look like wood but need zero maintenance. Pine is a Pain when it's used outside! (If your...

ΑΒ Βασιλόπουλος (AB Vassilopoulos) - I think their "catch phrase" is "we sell everything" - I asked for Turkey Milk once but they didn't have any :)

If you google ΑΒ Βασιλόπουλος χανια, that shows 2 locations.

Ληζιαρχιυμ πράξη θανάτου συγγενών - Religious act of death of relatives 3. Ληζιαρχιυμ πράξη θανάτου καταστασης - A deadly act ...

Re: Changes to online banking UK

I don't have a mobile at all - I have been sent a small card reader device for when an online purchase requires extra verification. I think I read somewhere that the need for extra verification will be a random event?

Re: Pound - Euro fx rate

The IMF have the best financial experts in the world and their predictions about what effect their austerity programme would have on the Greek economy were wrong, twice, by about an order of magnitude. At least they admitted that they got it completely wrong which is more than the Eurogroup have ev...

Re: Laundry service in Rethymno

Assuming you mean Rethymno City, there is a combined dry cleaner and laundry as you come in from the main road on the East side. Going West, the road takes you passed the old fire station and then further on the road dips down. The laundry is located just passed the dip (where you can turn left to g...

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

Thanks Warwick - it's good to hear I don't need a ladder! The water/corroded joints story has happened in the (distant) past and there is one box that looks somewhat dodgy - I'll take a good look avrio!

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

TweetTweet, That attenuation indicates a terrible line, a bad connection somewhere between your router and the main OTE box Its very high.

Re: Needle aponeurotomy

Have you had your thyroid checked - Dupuytren's and other musculoskeletal manifestations can be found in hypothyroid people. To check the thyroid you'd need TSH, FT4 and FT3 blood tests.

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

...frequently during conversations, it sounds like the other person is talking under water... I get something similar to this problem with Skype running on my desktop PC, which also uses VOIP type protocols. I don't leave Skype running all the time; I only run Skype when I want to talk to one of my...
