Re: places to hire a reasonable mountain bike (not high end) in Malaga city

Ive seen companies advertising bike rentals in grapevine and the like. How on earth can cost more to rent a bike than a car?????????

Re: Endesa Sales Pitch

We've just changed to Nordic energy, previously with Iberdrola. Very simple process as they do all the work. This time of year our bills are around the mid 90s euros. Had two bills from Nordic and they were mid 70s euros. So 20+euros per month saved so far, and their whole system is in proper english.

Re: Windows 10 1803 Forced Update

Microsoft decided yesterday that it was time to apply the upgrade to my pc, despite the fact that I have it set up not to automatically install updates.

Took a couple of hours to complete but so far it seems to have gone without a hitch.

Re: tv

Don't think you'd get a really good sound system for a meagre grand. My speakers alone cost almost that... True, but is your hearing up to it? Most people have lost their ability to hear high frequency sounds after the age of 50. Just buying expensive speakers won’t improve that. Fact of life unfor...

Re: tv

Your "expert" is right if he was referring to a non HD TV. Has anyone still got one of those? With HD and UHD the distance would be much closer. I will reiterate that these are "optimum" measurements to get the best, most immersive viewing experience. Sid We have a lowly HD tv. ...

Wild guess, maybe linux simply doesnt have the code to monitor temperature.

Re: Salud Responde

I meant the later version once it is installed :-)

Maybe they had a bucnh of release candidates that didn't make it out of the door. Don't see much change between 3.x and 4.x anyway...

Re: Salud Responde

There often isn't any obvious logic behind version numbers, other than they increase with each release :-) Normally the first number represents a major version number, the following dotted numbers are minor releases or bugfix releases.

Does the app run at all after you have installed it?

Re: Salud Responde

I had an eye problem. not urgent. Was referred to Costa del Sol hospital by GP. After a few weeks I had not heard anything. Living only a few minutes drive away I called at hospital to enquire. Was told I would be 6 months or more just to see a Consultant. GPs in Sussex have two clinics now. Always...

Re: Salud Responde

The wait in Basingstoke is so long that my daughter has no option than to take emergency appointments when the kids need to see a GP. Whereas here in Sayalonga I can normally get an appointment next day on the occasions we need to see a doctor. Take this week. My wife is experiencing vision problems...

I did have an occasion in the past where it stopped working. Uninstall/reinstall and all was good again.

Thanks Wicksey. Doesn't appear that they work with any of the mainstream insurers..

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

Normally clinics have a list of insurance companies that they work with on their website. Far easier than trying to navigate DKVs website. In this instance as i said didn't see any such list.

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

Do these folks deal with insurance companies. Could see anything from a quick peruse of their website. Fed up with Clinica Rincon and looking for an alternative.
