As for O Yiannis and his asvesti – he is not building and so doesn’t require planning permission to paint the wall of his apothiki, therefore no IKA to pay. :wink: Can you take it a little further, Carol. Would it be safe to say that if the work does not require a building permission then you don't...

The whole question of whether to change a UK licence for a Greek one is still an open question. I drove for eight years in Greece, without any problems, on my UK licence, which had my old address in the UK still on it even though I had sold the house. This was the old style paper licence. I then hit...

I don't really argue that much about global warming, Muttly. I have found that people are not interested in discussing it in a rational way. In fact most people are obsessed with tax initiatives associated with control of global warming rather than the physical phenomenon. I get a strong impression ...

A colleague of mine claimed to have seen the ball of string trick but I was never sure. He also claimed that on one occasion he was doing the usual blurb on the intercom and mentioned that they were flying over Ben Nevis but it couldn’t be seen for low cloud. He then paused for a few seconds, said “...

The (bi)cycle is much bigger than you suggest. At the end of the middle ages (1450's) the earth was much warmer than it is now and Greenland was productive farmland. 2,000 years ago the Romans had vineyards in Cumbria, and they had no cars or aeroplanes to blame! And your evidence that this was due...

I'd love to know how sunspot activity is causing the change in global temperature? Sunspot activity varies in an 11-year cycle and has done for a very long time. Strictly speaking it is a 22-year cycle since the suns magnetic field reverses on alternate cycles but this doesn't have a significant eff...

Flown many times from Glasgow to Benbecula on Viscounts back in the 60s and 70s. Captain Black was famous on this and other internal UK routes for playing pranks. Never experienced any myself but plenty of stories from other flyers.

Ooooops. Sorry. True Image does exactly that and creates back-ups. You're right, it wont create partitions.

There is so much variation in both countries that it would be very difficult to make a comparison. How would you know that you were comparing like with like? If you have your prescription, it is relatively simple and you want cheap there are many on-line retailers who are pretty low cost, e.g. http:...

You can buy an 80 GB USB2 external HD from ebay for about £24 plus £10 by courier to Greece. Is it worth messing about with an old drive?

I have not used it but I would gues that Acronis True Image 9 would probably let you create new partitions without destroying the exisiting partition and the data on it. I've got and old version of Acronis Partition Expert Personal which will happily modify the partition structure of a FAT32 drive w...

As far as I know you would need some sort of program to create an image. I do not believe that Windows can create a complete image of itself. Norton Ghost is one of the better known programs that does it and I think it was one of the first but many backup programs also allow you to create images. A ...

All I ever seem to get is a damn good thrashing. Watch the language chaps. There are members who are ex-public school, not me I hasten to add and my lips are sealed. If you start talking about "damn good thrashings in the shower" it could be very bad for their blood pressure. Warwick

But your external drive is not going to hold your operating system ... Why not, Paul? I would have thought it was a good idea to create an image of your operating system on an external HD partition so that in the event of an internal disk failure you can restore it without having to reload all your...

During summer, the days in England are longer than in Crete. During the winter they are longer in Crete than in the UK. At the equinoxes they are the same. Since half term is after the equinox, i.e. into winter, the days in Crete will be a bit longer but not by much. Weather at the end of October co...
