Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Katy I certainly wasn't implying that you were using snobbery at all, I merely meant some people do, which is a bit sad really. We also thought M&S sanwiches might be a good idea too, but we never got to find out. I take your point about wanting something on a two hour flight - but some people a...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Katy What I meant was that it was perverse to avoid Ryanair just for the sake of it, even though they might offer cheaper tickets than some of their rivals. Fow want of a better term, I also think it has a little to do with 'snobbery' in the sense that some people imagine that they are superior by t...

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Good morning all. I can not understand the vitriol that comes out of some of these postings about Ryanair. Nobody forces you to travel with them, so why get so upset about them. Personally, I have never had any problems flying with them, we have been using them years on a number of routes and only b...

Re: Newspapers -Granada

El Cid You are right of course. I was given instructions to look for three small lines at the top right of the crossword and then select that and find the printing icon. Nothing there. Anyway, as you say email it to yourself and it works very well indeed. The boss is very pleased indeed. We spent Sa...

Re: Smarty DNS

Persisted with Smartydns VPN but just could not connect with any of the UK sites, even though it worked fine for Germany, Singapore, Italy etc. Smartydns accepted that there was a fault and gave me a full refund and sent me a very pleasant email. Have now joined up with PrivateVPN and it works very ...

Re: Smarty DNS

Enrique, thanks for the offer but I am away from home at the moment. We are down in Malaga with relatives for a week or so. Are there any suggestion that you can make which might help me sort this? I think you suggested to someone else that they change their Username and Password. I have tried this,...

Re: Smarty DNS

Hello Enrique, I am using their Smartydns App on an iPad2. This App seems be for both their Smartydns and their VPN package. So I am meant to sign in to the VPN section and use their 'auto' config for the VPN connection. I can get a connection with eg Germany, Italy and Singapore, but nothing for Lo...

Re: Residencia

Had a quick look at the CAB information/advice and it appears that you use the same form (EX-18) as when you applied for Residencia.
All good stuff though.

Residencia

A friend of mine asked me yesterday how do you cancel your Residencia and go back to being a 'holiday' visitor again. He is off back to the UK to work fulltime again. Does he have to visit the place that issued his Residencia or can you do it online? He wants keep his apartment here and still visit ...

Re: Gibraltar

That Is a boat and a half. Moody produced some very fine yachts didn't they.
An old friend of mine at the club has sailed many boats over his many years and always said the best was the Moody he owned until he had to retire from sailing.

Very jealous.

Re: Builder/decorator payment profile

Agree with Wollie that trust is vitally important and it is a two way thing. If someone insists on 50% up front, I would walk away from it. 25% up front is more normal, with agreed stage payments as the job progresses. It is perfectly normal for a retainer to be agreed of say 10% until a mutually ag...
