The sign was also up on the kiosk in Kalyves. I'm sure the tavernas will display them prominently - probably next to the no smoking signs and the ashtrays. :) Ever seen the amount of discarded receipts outside a UK shop? Tax is paid in most/all countries because the tax authorities ensure it is too ...

Thanks all. Winxdvd seems to work fine for my use. Though DVDshrink sounds useful as 8Gb per film is a bit heavy.
Now just need to buy Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian and the flight time will just fly [sic] by. :lol:

Can anyone explain why no one seems to cover their log piles? Maybe because it burns slower - with no heat, but slower :) I bet there will be a lot more fires due to unseasoned wood being used and chimneys becoming clogged before the winter is over as well. How many bare forest areas will be seen so...

Can't brag about the tablet its a Ployer Mono 11. Got the best reviews of the Chinese clones and couldn't justify a IPad and wanted a 10" screen so Kindle Fire was ruled out. I must admit it feels a bit like when I was doing beta testing for my company when they were introducing Windows - espec...

Ripping a DVD

Anyone ripped a DVD to their PC? Got a tablet for Xmas and want to put some films on a memory stick to play on it.
As usual the online advice has that much data that getting objective information is hard.

Put your move off for 9 months you can have our landlord - didnt realise how lucky we were :D
Agree about the agent though they should ensure there is a contract and will maybe hold the deposit.

Penalties are exorbitant - as we found out once!! Moved to 10Gb package. Much like bank accounts if you want the best package and extra discounts you need to change your package every anniversary - makes me feel guilty about working in telecoms marketing for so long. Except for a fixed line everyone...

Cosmote and WiFi

We have no choice but to use a Cosmote 'dongle'. Except for the download limit its very good except for having to timeshare the dongle. Anyone know if there is a router available for a home wifi network that will work with their usb dongle?

We will be going into our 3rd year while our house is built. Biggest upside for us was that the landlord and his family adopted us. Free fruit and veg every summer from them, innumberable BBQs and lots more. Plus we have found out what we want in a house here rather than in the UK. We had people nex...

Agree! You will get widely varying quotes but it depends on what standard of living you want.
Hope it works for you and yours :)
