Thanks Paul - the errors are showing up when sending PMs as well, but they go through anyway.

What is slightly strange is that there has been no word on the blog, the tweet or as a message on the site itself with info regarding the forum's non appearance This is on the blog today - http://britsincrete.blogspot.com/2009/06/crete-forum-offline.html Seems a slightly odd way of explaining what ...

Which of the centres did you go to - the KTEO opposite the BP garage, or the other one?

As far as dogs go, I think you may be talking about a condition called leishmaniosis, which is carried by sandflies. You can get a special collar for your dog from the vet, which will help to guard against this. The other big problem for pets is ticks, so make sure you treat the dog with flea/tick t...

Just now in Crete, I'm looking at all the baby olives on our trees too, and enjoying all the beautiful wild flowers, and the birdsong. We grow olives organically, and our inspector is delighted by the biodiversity on our plot, along with our healthy trees, which makes the work worthwhile. Just now i...

Thanks for the information - as our registration no ends in 7 it looks as if we have until December! Will have to check about getting it done locally, as nearest KTEO/IKTEO are some distance away. We bought the car new in Oct 06, so would not otherwise need a test until next year.

May I be clear about this, please? Does the "fuel card" requirement only apply from the first time you have to take the KTEO test (ie when the car is 4 years old) or is there something I've missed and we need one before this?

Thanks

Lynn - you can buy Woolite products in Spar - for delicate fabrics - I have the same problem and find these ok. The "pink" type is the best. There is a Persil variant of this as well - just a matter of checking prices and finding which is the best for you. As far as general washing is conc...

That would be good! My Greek is improving, and I'm happy to do basic banking stuff online, but would hesitate to tackle anything complicated. I suppose 7 years isn't that long - I guess they will need to do something about it fairly soon, though, given that most of their competitors have English ver...

We had the same kind of experience with the bank - Eurobank. Took our tax numbers and passports - sat down, drank coffee, signed forms, and very soon had an account with no money in it and ATM cards, with PIN numbers. We've both, on separate occasions, lost our cards, and they have been replaced ins...

Hi Paul

ADSL not down here in Sitia, but it has been pretty slow at times during the last few days, with a couple of "off" spells as well.

Thanks, Paul - interesting to hear that AOL have "form" on this - have suspected that this was the case. Hotmail are the other main culprit, in my experience. I do have a googlemail account, so not cut off from the world, but normally use this for different purposes. Just particularly irri...

AOL blockages

Is anyone else having trouble with Greek IPs being blocked by AOL? Forthnet is being rejected today - this is to an AOL address with which I frequently correspond. AOL message back is 554 RLY:B1 http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/554rlyb1.html EXPLANATION: This error message is a dynamic block on...
