Farmers' blockade

Just heard from a local that the farmers will be blockading the National Road again near the Souda Ferry turnoff as of Tuesday next week, possibly for as long as 20 days. Malaxa/Samonas will be busy again!

Editing postings

Is it possible to edit a posting before actually submitting it? I clicked on Preview, saw an error, but couldn't get into it to correct it, so in the end came out of the site altogether and started again. Not a big chore - only a small posting, but marginally annoying!

Computer-savvy police?

One wonders if it would be possible for computer-savvy police (or anyone else for that matter) to work out where, geographically, the posting referred to in the link below originated?

I like the Greek Met Office one at http://www.meteo.gr/waf.asp and also http://www.crete-meteo.com/ because I can get very localised forecasts. If I'm going to be in Rethymno town or Chania I use accuweather or weatherunderground. I prefer this one for the Souda area - it seems about 95% reliable. ...

Paul H says "this is what I said would happen if you try make something out of rumour and gossip. " Fully agree. And, given all the things you say, can't see it happening this year anyway! However, it is useful to get an update on the current situation which is what the combined contributo...

Hang on a moment. I've just been talking this over with my other half and hit a fairly substantial stumbling block. Kilkis says; "The point is to try to force customers to demand receipts from businesses who, supposedly, don't usually give them. At present there is no real reason to ask for a r...

Thanks for all of that folks. I still find it very hard to imagine submitting a receipt for a couple of euros when I buy a pint of milk and a bicky, but there you go. The sad thing is that the retired civil servant in me will want to keep everything in date order rather than just shove it into a sho...

Receipts

Have been reading a lot on the other forum about receipts for expenditure and understand that we are still talking hypothetically. Looked at the link given and couln't glean anything from it. Not seriously talking about receipts for anything other than major works or purchases though, are we? Seems ...

Piggybacking off Carolina's original post, can anyone tell me how to get my otenet.gr e-mails when away from home, other than going through mail2web please? Mail2web works OK but I am always wary of giving my password out. There has to be a way to get into the otenet server? I used to do it OK with ...

It is not so often the power that is the problem (reference your trip switch) but rather when a surge goes down the telephone line and hits the router and possibly any cordless phones on the line. Whilst a direct hit is obvious the residual surge from that hit can come from a long way away and on e...

Yours might but I know of 2 over your way that have not (because of lightening hits or near misses)


Ouch. We did have to put the trip switch up about 5 times yesterday morning, but otherwise no problems. Nice to be lucky!

Just a point to make about this. The original query was about satellite internet. My understanding is that the Wind/vodaphone etc kit is not satellite, but mobile phone technology at landline prices. Not sure that there are any satellites about which have a footprint that would give internet in Cret...
