To correct people like us, Filippos, and a few others is fair game ... Sorry, Warwick, I disagree. Except in particular circumstances [see my post above] I don't think anyone is "fair game". Fair do's. I will revise my comment. I am happy with the concept that if I stick my head above the...

Clearly you cannot see the logical faults in your own argument, John. I suspect that most other people can. You interpreted the statement about 1,000 Euro as being some sort of "normal" cost. Having got that thought in your mind you cannot get past it despite the fact that the words do not...

I work on a simple principle: To correct people like us, Filippos, and a few others is fair game since we stick our heads a long way above the parapet. To correct other people posting on here, who have English as a first language but who are more reticent about posting, is pedantry and counter produ...

OK, John, I was prepared to let this drop following Carol's post but since you insist. The following are two sentences taken directly from the article: "The corruption watchdog informed the minister that its research found that the going rate for learner drivers to bribe examiners in order to g...

My use of English must be getting worse? I did not say the article did say "ADDITIONAL", John. I said the article DIDN'T say "INSTEAD". Can you cut and paste where in the article it says "INSTEAD"? "INSTEAD" is a figment of your imagination. The concept of &qu...

I also had problems with update yesterday but it seems OK now. As you know I have a problem with email scan disabling from time to time. Since most viruses propagate through emails this is not exactly good news. I also found that whenever I did a virus scan it identified a couple of programs as mali...

Isn't asking a question on a forum like this part of doing research? Is my memory going or didn't you used to ask questions here Andy?

Perhaps his punctuation is better in Swedish, Martin. How good is yours in the various Scandinavian languages?

I did NOT take a Greek test!!! I EXCHANGED my UK licence for a Greek one. That does not involve a bribe, although you do need to pay the licence fee. Read the article John. NOWHERE does it say that the bribe is INSTEAD of paying for lessons. It says they pay a 300 Euro bribe. It also says it costs 1...

Never mind, look on the bright side, according to the Minister for Bribery & Corruption (otherwise known as the Greek chapter of Transparency International) it is still possible to "buy" a driving license for 300 Euros instead of paying a thousand Euros for lessons and a test. I am no...

Anybody with 20,000 Euro per year shouldn't have a problem unless they have some extreme expenditures. Anybody with 10,000 Euro per year is going to find it pretty tight and might not manage at all. Somewhere between you will be OK but exactly where depends on a lot of things, e.g if you heat with w...

Outlook Express but two of the three accounts are redirected through SpamPal, i.e. 1110 in POP3 under Advanced rather than 110.

I was pretty careful to select the free version not the trial version. I avoid trials like the plague. It lists itself a AVG Anti-Virus Free on the Window header, in the system tray and as Licence Type: Free at bottom left. If you click on the Licence icon on the overview page it states that "T...

I've done the Calais - Geneva - Mont Blanc route a couple of times and liked it. Yes French motorways are not cheap but they are good and, provided you avoid "Le Weekend", pretty empty. The only thing I don't like about them is the fact that whenever you come to a big town you have to go t...
