Just shows the differences between how town halls work.
Velez Malaga, where both of us Gerrys come under, do not charge for an up to date Padron Certificate.

In my experience it is quite easy, and cheap, to change keyboards on Acer Aspire laptops.
Model 5741Z in my case.

Re: Terracotta tiles for interior/exterior

You might find them called losas de barro.
Certainly agree with the above comments. I dug all mine up from inside the house and replaced them with ceramic tiles.
The outside ones will probably be replaced soon with ceramic tiles as the surface is breaking up on quite a few of them.

Re: Terracotta tiles for interior/exterior

You should be able to find them in most real builders merchants, not places like Leroy Merlin.
Possibly haven't different names for them depending where you go but rusticos is probably a common name for them.

Re: Ryanair luggage change

Sounds like a perfectly sensible thing for Ryanair to implement.
Of course they wouln't have had to do this if it wasn't for some of their customers grossly abusing the carry on luggage allowances.

Re: UPS battery

Pino Electric, Torre fel Mar, stock them. Just got one from Pino's. :wave: Don't know if you are a frequent visitor to their shop but they now have another shop at 14 Puerta del Mar, the group of shops on the other side of the roundabout from the football ground that is near El Ingenio.

Re: UPS battery

Pino Electric, Torre fel Mar, stock them. Alternatively, and worth a visit, Mailing Electrico, opposite the TdM bus station, near to the big Rodi & Rofer showroom. Pino's will get a visit tomorrow. :thumbup: :thumbup: Never noticed them in Mailing Electrico when I've been in there. Cheers Gerry

Re: Average Euro rate for renta declaration 2017

I don't declare a rate as my company pension, originating in £s from the UK, is paid into my Spanish bank in €s.
I declare the total amount received in €s as that is the actual income I receive.

UPS battery

I need a new battery, 12V 7.0A, for my UPS.
I know I can probably get them online and wait for delivery, but would prefer to buy one from a shop tom morrow.
Anybody know of a shop that sells them in the Torre del Mar, Velez Malaga, Rincon de la Victoria area.

Re: Choosing / changing electricity contract

I read somewhere that throwing the main on/off switch on the fuse-board and then switching back on would do it. Is that correct ? That is my understanding. One day, when I've got nothing better to do, I will overload my contracted 8.8 KW supply until it trips and see how to reset it. Cheers Gerry

[ We have a smart meter but the trip is in the fuseboard in the house, sealed with wire and a lead crimp. So do I, but the trip in the fuseboard was installed before the Smart meter was installed. I believe the trip in the fuseboard is now surplus to requirements and can be removed. :think: Cheers ...

Re: Mobile phone data usage

Assuming your phone uses the Android OS then if you go into settings, data usage it will show you the amount of data used by each app in your present monthly billing period.
You can also set a warning when your usage exceeds a certain amount.
