However you need a minimum number of contributions, and these are high -...

Aaaa so you found that one a problem to get rid of too Paul - don't tell us how you got it on your machine 8) Just been looking at google as you suggested and it seems the main problem with prevx1 is that some people can't get rid of it. So I could end up keeping it whether I want to or not! But the...

Hi Martin,

Sorry to hear you are having problems. There is an Alexandros Psarakis listed in the phonebook in Heraklion. Maybe you can contact him direct - send me a PM if you'd like more info.

Yes, and here's the page with the external unit: http://www.ydrothermiki.gr/projects-en.html I've also just discovered that Piscines Ideal in Kalives (Andreas) do them too - the Desjoyaux. They don't seem to have a website, but the system is here - sorry about the long URL, it's a google translation...

Malware & Prevx1

I had some really stubborn nasty malware on my machine, called Drivecleaner & something else I can't remember the name of now. Causing pop ups and download windows to appear frequently. My antivirus, anti adware and X cleaner couldn't pick it up and delete it. After a google search I eventually ...

I haven't seen Vista in action yet but had a good look through the info site and the graphics etc look great. Will wait for the teething problems to be sorted (there will be plenty won't there?!) until I would consider installing it - then I guess I would need more memory to do that anyway. It will ...

My experience is that my kitchen waste turns into fresh eggs!

I save the peelings etc and give to neighbours to feed their hens and they give me eggs in return. Not that I ask for them but they won't take no for an answer.

Sorry Margarita, 'asxeto' with your compost question !

Idiots Guide..

It's that time of year again - for tax returns. The 'idiot guide' to Greek tax returns - filling in form E1 - is published on the Athens News website: http://www.athensnews.gr/athweb/nathens.prnt_article?e=C&f=13226&t=01&m=A17&aa=1 Well even the idiot guide looks complicated to me, (...

They didn't tell me how long it would take Paul and I didn't ask as at the time I was upset that the cost would only be 18 euros/month at 1024bps, including the 'line' rental. Upset? Yes because this is the office phone, and at home I'm paying about 35 euros/ month for lower speed! I've just renewed...

While I sympathise with the plight of the turtles from the 'illegal' and political dealings going on Zakynthos, it's a pretty extreme call for action. Boycott the whole island? I would have thought that is the most unlikely way to encourage support for the campaign by any of the inhabitants of Zakyn...
