My wife just rebooked for September. 8)

My own intuitive feeling is that this problem will be gone before end of April. Keep your fingers crossed.

Re: CoronaVirus now confirmed on Crete

If all of this is true (and I am not suggesting Warwick or Martin or anyone else is peddling untruths) I'm not peddling anything. :wink: I'm merely reporting facts and pointing you to the articles/video so you can use your own discernment. I've just been told by a local person that Greek scientists...

Re: EOPYY Prescriptions

An elderly, disabled acquaintance phoned her (private) doctor in Kalives. He phoned the pharmacy and I collected the prescription direct from there.

Re: CoronaVirus now confirmed on Crete

On March 19th it was announced in America that there's a potential cure for the c-virus. Here is Trump's announcement: (at time 1:13.30) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSFBJZp9P2Q&feature=youtu.be&t=4201 It's an existing malaria drug called Chloroquine, so President Trump has ordered it to ...

Re: Download from YouTube

I use this Add-on for "Firefox" web browser: https://www.yourvideofile.org/ Also (I think) this one: https://technologyto.com/media-capture.html YouTube continually tries to block such Add-ons (frequently succeeding) so whichever you choose is likely to stop working eventually - sometimes ...

Re: Greek EHIC card for a resident Brit?

I just used the landline ..I know it's expensive but we don't really have the bandwidth for skype ... I use Skype 4-way video call each week with less than 3.4 Mbps download speed (and less than 800 kbps upload). Problems are rare and usually caused by someone* deciding to download/stream a movie s...

Re: Laptop Screen Repair

"Public" near the indoor market in Haniá are also good, although my experience is only with Apple Macs.

Road tax for 50cc mopeds/bikes

For the last five years I've paid road tax on my 50cc bike - €3 + €12 = €15. Each time, I've enlisted the help of others but this year I'd like to do it myself. The tax for 50cc vehicles is due in April (unlike other vehicles). The method is to locate the relevant webpage, fill out the form, print o...

Re: Finding a 12v Car battery charger!!?

I would have thought that Babis in Kalyves, opposite the EKO filling station, would have one. Failing that, there's the car accessory shop in Haniá which is past Lidl and turn right. You go up that (Mournies) road from the National Road, past Lidl and on until you reach a set of traffic lights where...

Re: Satellite TV

You can see all satellite channel listings at http://www.lyngsat.com Sky News broadcasts from the Astra 2 cluster located at 28.2 degrees east of the southern meridian. I think that Euronews also still has a channel on that satellite. If not, try Hot Bird satellite located at 13.0 degrees east of th...

Re: Choosing a New Lap Top

I won't try to advise but I'll tell you what I did. I have just bought a mid 2012 MacBook Pro to replace my wife's 2011 MacBook Pro. It was easier than trying to fix her "slow running" 2011 MBP while she waited (but I did try). Of course, after I bought the "new" laptop, I discov...
