I just use those figures as a comparison.....Trace elements I know from experience means you can more or less step between the drops

4 or 5mm tends to mean some fairly heavy stuff......add in the wind speed and direction and you can get a fairly good idea of how unpleasant it is going to be

Your problem is going to be that the list will be constantly changing (hopefully expanding), that some Internet cafes legitimately give free wi fi. If your list sends someone to a hot spot 3km away whereas there could be one a couple of hundred yards away at an internet cafe or even say at Mama's pl...

ok it's been amended, I checked it again when Warwick queried it with me and 5pm Sunday was 6mm, 8pm was 14mm, 11pm was 7mm. Now it's much more benign and really nothing to write home about. The wind direction is now constant NNE whereas it did show it backing to a southerly for the duration of the ...

There was no obvious lightning/thunderstorm indication which is not to say it won't happen but the warning was regarding the sheer volume of rain and potential runoff "rivers" given that the ground was already sodden

weather yet again (has now changed)

I only post weather warnings when it looks as though it might be particularly bad. Fair amount of normal rain over the weekend forecast, throughout the day for Sunday, no problem. But it is Sunday evening/night which looks like extremely heavy rain again but this time it's falling on already well so...

Trouble is , and it's not really trouble, that just sit on a bench in Chania and you can usually pick up say 7 wi fi signals and usually at least 3 of them are open so why traipse along to an official one. Forthnet has one from their shop in Chania if I recall correctly. Megala Chorafi....ooops sorr...

Sincere maybe but not thought through A taser here has no deterrent capability. Given that Mr Nasty is rarely going to go around solo and the item is single shot it is more likely to create a serious problem (to others not only yourself) than not having or not using it. Given the riots a couple of y...

I can see 2 major problems but as the Greek police use them occasionally and there appears to be no actual law banning them yet then technically yes they probably are legal. They might however be illegal to bring into the country which your link would require you to do. Problem 1 They might be legal...
