Re: Salted capers and pomegranate molasses

It's a bit difficult to point you in a direction without knowing where you are based. But if you are anywhere near Rethymno, the Moka shops will have the molasses, and so many other tempting products that it's worth making a special trip there. I agree about preserving your own capers, both capers a...

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

A few titles from my bookshelf of varying age and content but commendable quality: The Great Island by Michael Llewellyn Smith. Adam Hopkins' Crete. These two written in the 60s and 70s respectively, are obviously quite dated but are both literate and flavourful personal descriptions. Much more rece...

Re: iPlayer

Don't worry Paul - no way you could have known about imminent problems. Your post suggests that you have been in touch with PIA regarding C4. I’m interested to know if this is because you tried PIA and found C4 blocked as well? It’s still fine for me with C4. About 10 minutes ago, I signed up for a ...

Re: iPlayer

Also, according to the bods at Private Internet Access, C4 have just "geo-locked" their service making it impossible (??) to watch outside UK. I haven't had time to check out geo-locking, or possible loopholes, but... Yesterday I had a visit from a Brit friend who lives in Estonia, and who...

Re: Car and van recycling centre?

Sorry I can't help with that, though I'm sure someone else can. I am still curious to know though, re your earlier post about registration plates, what kind of plates you have now on your van?

Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

I'm still not clear as to whether this vehicle has a) French plates, which is what I think you're assuming, in which case all the aforesaid fassaria applies, or b) Greek private-car plates, organised by the importer, which is how I read it and would obviously require a different and much simpler pro...

Re: Business registration plates for imported van?

I'm not entirely sure what "business registration plates" are. Surely the key question is: what plates does the car have now? If ordinary private-car Greek ones, then the importer must himself have done the paperwork. And I don't see how he can not have done so - unless there are special r...

Re: iPlayer

I had recurrent problems with the iPlayer but Express VPN sorted me out - a change of UK server means it's now working fine. But there is also a separate recent problem with Channel 4 catchup, which apparently is now tracing locations and telling us "the service isn't available in your area&quo...

This is the main link http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer Now there's a thing. That's the link I've always used, the one that';s now started playing up. I read Carolina's reply earlier today when I was away from the house, using my tablet, and it worked fine. But now I'm home at the PC, and STILL getting ...

iPlayer

Anyone else having (new) problems getting access to the BBC iPlayer? The link I've always used is now throwing up an error message. I can reach it by going to the programme page of an archived show - say, Top of the Lake - which will give me the available episodes and also link me quite happily to t...

Re: Greek Business

Mouche is not a troll. He has been a member of this board, posting regularly, for some years. Being Norwegian does not make him a troll any more than being Irish makes a Dubliner a leprechaun. I tend not to read his posts because I find the style and content overly cynical and combative, but he is e...
