Re: Piraeus Bank ATM Withdrawal Charge

A lot of discussion about a similar, but not quite identical, issue on an earlier thread.

Re: UK TV,LIVE & CATCHUP

Thanks for the replies. The web site https://www.my-private-network.co.uk/ linked by LittleJohn contains lots of useful information even if you don't use their service. For example a smart TV bought in Greece won't typically let you install UK specific apps like BBC iPlayer. The my-private-network s...

Re: Storm Clouds.

Sky News are running a report today about the concerns of UK ex-pats living in the EU. A couple of interesting facts emerge from it: 1 About 80 % of the UK ex-pats living in the EU are working there. About 20 % are retired. That is very different from my own experience and what I believed to be the ...

Re: Storm Clouds.

I think your examples are sort of supporting Brian's statement, TweetTweet?. It might have been better if Brian had written "in the EU" rather than "in Europe" but the only countries in Europe where there have been wars are NOT in the EU. While not conclusive it does tend to supp...

Re: Life with a pacemaker

Avoid induction hobs. They use high power RF to induce current, and hence heat, directly in the pan. They aren't very common but you never know what someone might have in their kitchen. Basically any high power source of RF or low power at very close range. RF welders, RF gluers, emergency service r...

Re: Command-Picture-Hanging strips

Always worth a search on You Tube as well. Caveat Emptor. Some of it tends to be absolute rubbish but some of it is excellent. I managed to strip down and repair a laptop computer following a video on You Tube and they aren't particularly easy. The first one I watched had him smashing into it with a...

Re: UK TV,LIVE & CATCHUP

Out of curiosity has anybody tried using a VPN on a tablet? I have a feeling that some of the apps, like BBC iPlayer make use of the GPS built into the tablet for geo-location so using a VPN to spoof a UK IP address won't work. I also have a feeling that if you disable the GPS facility the app won't...

Re: DEYAAN account number

Both very good points by Filippos and Jean. The payment code on the income tax demand and the ENFIA demand both have two spaces in them but you have to delete those before entering it. My Cosmote bill used to have a dash before the last digit but you needed to remove it. Now it is a single number. T...

... if we decide to stay in the club it will be on EU terms and the first one will be ditch your british pound. Both the UK and Denmark have a derogation allowing them NOT to adopt the Euro so that is not true, Kamisiana. That has no expiry date. All other member states are committed to joining the...

Re: DEYAAN account number

No, it's not the account number. Somewhere on the bill should be a box labelled ΚΩΔΙΚΟΣ ΠΛΗΡΩΜΗΣ ΣΕ ΤΡΑΠΕΖΑ. That is the number to use. It might be slightly different but it should contain the words ΚΩΔΙΚΟΣ and ΠΛΗΡΩΜΗΣ. For example the ΔΕΗ bills have ΚΩΔΙΚΟΣ ΕΛΕΚΤΡΟΝΙΚΗΣ ΠΛΗΡΩΜΗΣ and COSMOTE just h...

Re: Car hire in UK

It's not a car I would buy, because their reliability was terrible, but it was a very nice car to drive, certainly much nicer than a Fiesta so yes. My ex-boss in northern Greece had one until he binned it after 7 replacement engines.

Re: Car hire in UK

As far as I can tell from my last visit to the UK in May, hire car companies are getting a lot of premium cars on their fleet, which they attempt to rent out at high prices. Not surprisingly people are mostly opting for cheaper cars so the hire companies tend to run out of these quite quickly and tr...

Re: Thinking about buying in Rethymnon?

It is certainly true that lawyers are registered in a particular Nomos and can only represent people in court in that Nomos. They can give advice outside their registered Nomos but not practise.

Re: Car hire in UK

I'm all in favour of peer-to-peer. I use it to invest savings and to exchange currency.
