Alternatives

As Sky slowly degrades to useless I'm looking for an alternative BUT I can't get a landline and CYTA aren't rolling out to Neo Chorio so I have satellite. 30Gb download limit with 'unlimited' 11pm to 7 am. I am using SKY on demand which works fine just now but given subscription costs not maybe the ...

My wife used to enjoy gardening with her friendly Robin in the UK. This was before we got our two Burmese cats!

Re: getting it right before we move

To an extent you can decide once you are here on a lot of things but the car can be a real PITA. We ended up driving back to the UK and friends sold it for us. HMRC are usually quite happy to advise that unless you have 'no intention of ever returning' then you are deemed as UK tax resident :D This ...

Car Tax

I seem to remember that there was a detailed though simple explanation of how to print the necessary for the bank from on the forum?
Tried to search but it wont accept car tax as the words are "too common".
Can you help?

Re: Rugby World Cup 2015

Do you mean " .... the best game in the world!!!!!! " ?

Why comment on a statement of undeniable fact? :D

I'm taking the view that since the ref robbed us then it's really a Scotland v NZ final 8)

Fiberglass

Can you get fiberglass here or is there an equivalent? Durostick[?] seems to do a resin type product but without the fiber element.
Without using Nomad I cant get the resin delivered from the UK.

Re: Property Tax, latest.

Does the deadline for payment of 30 Oct still stand? Like most i was told come back next week. If we all go back next week the system will definitely crash!
This assumes I can get to the front of the queue for ENFIA as I cant get an appointment as no one knows when the system will be working :roll:

Re: Calling SKY

Thanks.
Couldn't justify Sky Sports anymore with BT taking that much. I did manage it online -finally - but don't try the 'chat' function as they can only add not subtract packages :roll:

Calling SKY

If I use a UK phone and sim - i.e, UK number - will SKY still see it as an overseas call? Hard enough to get them to do anything without saying I'm on holiday or similar.

Re: Free update to Windows 10

Best I can say about 10 is that I don't mind it. Graphics are OK, quickly get used to the new menu but EDGE [Explorer 11] needs some work on it so using Mozilla. I'm guess the main upgrades are in the background and useful to developers and for security but cant say I saw any real difference in perf...

Re: Get rich quick?

All members 'promise to pay' and this becomes the share capital of the scheme. Someone then floats the company using this 'non existent' share capital and everyone is an equal owner of a massive corporation. It all falls down as their is no mention of how this [non existent] money will be used to cr...

Re: partial denture vs implants?

You obviously know the surgery involved for implants and the price differential so other than that the choice is yours. X rays to insure that the sinus cavity wont be effected are a must. But there is no 'breaking in' [sic] period for implants and once in place should be the same or better than your...
