To stop the itching use lemon juice on the bites and then cover with Sellotape. Leave the Sellotape on for about 4 hours. As to how to stop getting bit in the first place, you can try citronella or those coil things you light. But if they like you like they like me, there's nothing that's going to s...

I'm in Athens. That'll be why I get it then. It will get rolled out oneday to the rest of Greece. I think the EU wants digital everywhere by 2012. So the tuner could be useful oneday.

I was curious to know if what people call a "freeview" tuner is just a generic digital tuner?

I agree with Warwick. Most UK TVs now incorporate a digital "Freeview" tuner, which is totally useless in Crete. Unless you can get a HUGE discount on a TV without a digital tuner, and with PAL B/G audio, forget it. Why's the freeview tuner useless? surely you can watch the digital channe...

You don't really need to worry about it. Its like flash and does some of the nice graphics, like flash. If you surf onto a website that uses it you will be prompted to download it then, just like flash (although most people have flash already so don't see the prompt) So unless you want to develop wi...

I can't go into costs of living for the area as I am in Athens, but I can tell you; 1: 2000€ a month will equal 28,000€ a year, as in Greece we get 14 months pay a year. Easter and August you get an extra 1/2 a months pay and Christmas you get a full months pay extra. This is a very good wage for Gr...

I would call the police and they will come out to check if there is a building permit for the conservatory - which I doubt there is. The owners will then probably have a night in the cells and have to pay a fine every year until the conservatory is removed. If they are prepared to just pay the fine,...
