Yep. Works OK in Firefox, Chrome and Android. Problem is only with IE.

However, apologies for diverting this thread. Any comments on the original subject - the arrest of the Golden Dawn Leadership, which is much more interesting?

Greek channels

The evenings are getting cooler so it must be time to start thinking about moving inside and watching TV. I have tried to tune in Greek TV on my set which is supposed to deal with a digital signal. Auto tune found all the channels and plays the sound beautifully. No picture though !! Any ideas please?

Mike, just feed the cat (you know you will anyway). Negotiate the best deal you can with the 'adopter' and, if you are a few cents out of pocket, write it off to experience. Life's too short.

Our accountant told us to keep our receipts for 7 years. When I was putting this year's batch away I opened an envelope containing receipts from 3 years ago. 75% of them had faded to the point of virtual illegibility. So, whose problem is that going to be if we are ever audited?

Legalisation (again)

This from Xaniotika Nea today. Quite hard to understand in Google translation but may contain good news for those of us who have pursued a masterly policy of inaction for the last year or so. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=el&u=http://www.haniotika-nea.gr/&ei=wmrrTsWpB9P4...
