Re: VPN

We've used a VPN service for several years to access the BBC. They've not blocked us yet. Try UKTVPlus. Andrew Hi Andrew I note that these people are based in Crete. Do you think that has any bearing on their apparent reliability, given the problems other providers seem to constantly have? I'm prob...

Re: Any Pilots/Flight Simulator users in Crete?

It might help if you tell us where you are.

Re: VPN

Hi Jane, Most VPN's are useless. Try it out before you spend any money. I've tried several to be able to access the BBC, who have locked their doors to foreign viewers this year. The BBC, like most large commercial organisations, can easily see that you are using a VPN. Your access is then disabled...

Re: Illegal grazing of Goats in olive trees.Advice please.

Hate to say this, but you will almost certainly need a building permit to fence in...... It may depend exactly how it's done. But as Carolina says, it will solve the problem.

Re: Illegal grazing of Goats in olive trees.Advice please.

Surely it depends what you are fencing. I don't know about Warwick's tame goats, but round here if you don't fence a garden or veg plot the goats will have the lot. Not so much a problem with olives.

Re: Illegal grazing of Goats in olive trees.Advice please.

I think ex-pats do have a rather strange attitude to life in Crete. Before our house was built, on the very edge of a village, the whole area was open orange groves with no fences. While there wasn't anybody with flocks of goats several of the old ladies in the area each had a few and they would te...

Re: Greek Business

As feedback on the €100 that you can claim back from IKA, discussed earlier in this thread, I got my bankbook updated today and discovered that the money I claimed back in February was paid into my account in mid August. A friend who claimed a few weeks before me also got his about the same time so...

Warwick is dead right about that. Care needed.

Pain in the ar*e. It seems that manufacturers in the IT/electronics sector are exempt from the normal rules of commerce.

Re: Renting AirBnb? Finance Ministry is looking for you..

Well, I was ignoring the business licencing system as we seemed to be discussing the 2 property "soft" licence system and the new simple registration system. ... I think the "no services" rule also applies to the "soft licence" category if my memory serves me right. I ...

Re: Renting AirBnb? Finance Ministry is looking for you..

The full registration system also has a cap on total lettings time, 12 weeks in this case... If that had any validity then I think there must be more than one category of registration. The villas I know of that are fully legally registered with EOT are open from 1 April to 21 October and that is a ...
