Re: Download from YouTube

I use this Add-on for "Firefox" web browser: https://www.yourvideofile.org/ Also (I think) this one: https://technologyto.com/media-capture.html YouTube continually tries to block such Add-ons (frequently succeeding) so whichever you choose is likely to stop working eventually - sometimes ...

Re: Greek EHIC card for a resident Brit?

I just used the landline ..I know it's expensive but we don't really have the bandwidth for skype ... I use Skype 4-way video call each week with less than 3.4 Mbps download speed (and less than 800 kbps upload). Problems are rare and usually caused by someone* deciding to download/stream a movie s...

Re: Laptop Screen Repair

"Public" near the indoor market in Haniá are also good, although my experience is only with Apple Macs.

Road tax for 50cc mopeds/bikes

For the last five years I've paid road tax on my 50cc bike - €3 + €12 = €15. Each time, I've enlisted the help of others but this year I'd like to do it myself. The tax for 50cc vehicles is due in April (unlike other vehicles). The method is to locate the relevant webpage, fill out the form, print o...

Re: Finding a 12v Car battery charger!!?

I would have thought that Babis in Kalyves, opposite the EKO filling station, would have one. Failing that, there's the car accessory shop in Haniá which is past Lidl and turn right. You go up that (Mournies) road from the National Road, past Lidl and on until you reach a set of traffic lights where...

Re: Satellite TV

You can see all satellite channel listings at http://www.lyngsat.com Sky News broadcasts from the Astra 2 cluster located at 28.2 degrees east of the southern meridian. I think that Euronews also still has a channel on that satellite. If not, try Hot Bird satellite located at 13.0 degrees east of th...

Re: Choosing a New Lap Top

I won't try to advise but I'll tell you what I did. I have just bought a mid 2012 MacBook Pro to replace my wife's 2011 MacBook Pro. It was easier than trying to fix her "slow running" 2011 MBP while she waited (but I did try). Of course, after I bought the "new" laptop, I discov...

Re: Driving Licences

I've just been told by someone who exchanged licences last year that a translation is not required. (rolleyes) But it took three months because they rejected the initial set of photos. That would suit me because they don't steal the UK licence until they issue the Greek one. So I can still go to the...
