I think that if you don't have the renewal notice then you need to go to the tax office. Have you tried asking your accountant/lawyer. If you are not registered as tax resident in Greece, and most people aren't, one of these must be on your tax registration and that is where the renewal will be sent...

As it is a USB connection which then uses their software there is no obvious way of looking up the IP address. If you use their network and then look up your IP you get the address of their gateway onto the web not the address of your particular dongle which you would need for your network. (A bit ...

Could it be as simple as setting ALL addresses manually? Sometimes when you use a wizard to set up an ad-hoc network it opts to assign addresses automatically. If the Vodafone connection requires a specific address then it probably won't find it after you have started the ad-hoc network. I'm not sur...

Also be prepared for the possibility that it will not sail because of bad weather. It might be OK on your date but if there was a storm when the outward sailing should have left then they usually wait until the next scheduled departure rather than leaving when the storm abates. We've used Superfast ...

You'll love the coast road from Nice round to La Spezia. Built on the mountain side so alternates tunnel-bridge-tunnel etc. I think we counted over 100 tunnels, some of them km long.

With a moderate size dish, e.g. 1.2m, you can receive all channels on Astra 2A and 2B South beams and a few channels on Astra 2A and 2B North beams. To receive Astra 2D you need an approximately 5m dish. Unless you go big, this means no BBC, ITV or Channel 4 but you can get Channel 5. Sky 1 is OK bu...

This may not help but you could try going to Control Panel, click on System, click on the Hardware tab, click on Device manager and click on the + next to Audio, Video and Game Controllers. You should get a list of devices with their names. For example I have a Creative SB Live sound card fitted and...

If you can't sort out the driver and you are desperate for sound you can buy a plug in USB sound card for about £17, e.g. Terratec Aureon Dual USB. See www.terratec.net for info and www.disking.co.uk for supply.

If (s)he’s happy in your car, then you can leave them in there, but you won’t be able to go to see them. In most cases I would strongly recommend against this. Often cars are parked in relatively small, totally enclosed decks with no ventilation. The temperature could get quite high and there is al...

You cannot know exactly what you are closing which can be misleading if not dangerous. Also various of the processes are interdependent so cl...
