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.

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

This problem is ongoing for me. Also, when I make a landline call to any UK number, frequently during conversations, it sounds like the other person is talking under water. There's no echo. The other thing I've noticed is that the "on-line" light on the router is sometimes very weak looki...

Re: The Will of the People

Sadly I have this thing about hand gestures, You know the ones, the straight hand like attempting a hard handshake with thumb tucked in and the one where it looks like you are holding an invisible spoon (like in an egg and spoon race) .

Re: The new National Road

I've been trying to see the new route as well - apparently 2 possibilities are being considered. If you scroll quite a way down in this link, (I think) it gives and idea of the 2 options. https://www.parakritika.gr/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/voak.pdf Apparently it will cost and eye watering 1.8 bill...

Re: Athens Airport --the long walk

I've just returned from Barcelona and used *the long Athens airport walkway* - due to people who have clearly never lived in e.g. London (so don't understand the unwritten rule of keep to the right, I dont use travelators or elevators.

Re: Cosmote internet router problem

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing our problem. A few months ago Cosmote persuaded us to upgrade our internet router. The old one worked perfectly well but they said this new one would be better. However, since installing it, our connection to the internet drops out at random times, for ...

Re: Satalite?

I use Film on dot com for TV (all UK channels) plus many more (worldwide). It used to be free but now costs around 15 euro a month (so about the same as the UK licence fee). (I Player won't work though). Your mother could also subscribe to a VPN service wherein your computer's IP address can show e....

Re: Water filter taps

Revers osmosis also depletes something like 90% essential minerals e.g. calcium and magnesium. Unless you are replacing that somehow, the water quality (for drinking at least) is very *degraded* i.e. not healthy.

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

I tend to feel rather ill/sick when I see people drinking things like coca cola, diet cola - all the very health damaging *soft drinks* (mostly laced with faked sugars such as aspartame. :)

Re: Still in Limbo

Personally I would recommend A/B supermarket - I think they advertise that they can provide *EVERYTHING* (including milk from a Turkey)....I did ask them for that one day. but got a very *funny look* :)
