Couple of points you don't often see written but need consideration. You come over here and at first you are thrown together almost 24/7 whereas in the UK perhaps one of the parties was out at work 5 or 6 days a week. Whats more at first you do not have a circle of friends to retreat to or to distra...

just some quick notes added 1 GB memory to my Vista laptop (making 1.5GB total) and it really does make a difference. OK the Tosh dynamically allocates video memory so it's made a big difference there too. So from personal experience I can now say if you are going the Vista route then 1GB memory min...

Another little nicety (NOT) from Vista USB Skype (or similar) phones that worked fine on XP machines will appear to load the software ok on Vista but then will not work sound through the USB connection. Just in case it was me and the settings, I checked across the internet and this problem is there ...

Ok more ramblings on the Vista machine, I have my own now, a basic laptop with Vista home basic installed with 512 ram. Yes you definitely need more ram for Vista. I have read many reports on this and some are even quoting as high as 4MB to have it run effortlessly but then again these are the same ...

Prevx1 is a bit of a mixed blessing....put "Prevx1 problems" into Google and see what I mean. In general I would go with it but it doesn't work for everyone....using it on a low powered machine could put enough of a strain on the system to make it's performance noticeably worse therefore you hate it...

Basic 512 unfortunately as does the one I have ordered but I upped that to 1 GB. Vista is using around 300Meg of memory just sitting there doing nothing....(with XP that was 200Meg)...of course that depends what is starting up automatically but on the Vista machine I haven't been asked to look at th...

Windows Vista

I am going to start up a long term thread on Windows Vista experiences and thoughts. It has been around for non commercial customers since end of January. Currently it is not something you would upgrade to more something you would get as part of a new machine. It is not radically different to XP but...

It takes 2 weeks to get a bad name and at least 2 years to lose it so even if you have a short successful campaign (which I doubt) you will still cause considerable harm to families and their children. You will also affected the livelihood of many people there who have played absolutely no part in t...

If you take the logic then just about every country has one reason or another to say "You Really Shouldn't Holiday in X" thats why this viewpoint is unacceptable besides we would all end up holidaying in Belgium!!!!!

sorry I was meaning to say that I don't think they would be using a derelict building if they planned to deliver within 10 days

I was not questioning whether the building in Kalives was derelict or not I don't even know the building (though I admit it could be read that way)

I don't know if they quoted the same to you Carolina but to the other people I know they quoted 10 days so I don't think it is a derelict building. Given Kalives is 6k from Vamos as the crow flies, it cannot be a physical line via Kalives so it could be a transmitted signal (wireless) with the aeria...

Generally it is a sales team in Athens doing the tele sales and they are not always aware of local problems If you have a phone line already then theoretically it is possible to get adsl (given you are within the 5-7k). Given it's tele sales one presumes it makes calls to existing line renters and t...
