Re: Certificate of conformity

Hi Mhic, If you look at that website, the drop down menu for year of first registration only goes back to 2000. As far as I remember yours is 1995. Also it requires a 17 digit vin number and your bike is the old style engine number and frame number format xxx-xxxxxx. You could try uploading the cert...

Re: Dec 2013 state pension payment

Its probably to do with SEPA. Single European Payment Area. Which obviously excludes UK and sterling area. Check your virtual mailbox on your online Cajamar account. Its to do with speeding up and reducing costs of payments within the euro area (plus a few others), using IBAN instead of Swift and BI...

Re: Whatapp

I use Whatsapp a lot to communicate with our son in Vancouver. His Canadian phone package has international text messages as quite expensive - whatsapp is free to use with wifi or internet connection. You can send pics as well. The advantage it has over SMS (apart from price) is that you can see if ...

Re: Cheap ipad Ooops, I mean tablet

You need to be careful as to the OS for the tablet (sorry, Operating System!). Most of them are Android, but the version is important as some of the more useful apps will only work on newer releases of the OS. I bought a tablet that has Android 4.0 and it cannot use quite a few decent apps. Look for...

Re: Registering a motorcycle.

Mhic, send me the vin (frame) number and engine number and i will check it out. I have a feeling that when we were trying to get the exhaust pipe sorted that it was an import from USA.
PM if you like.

The ad says €199,950. If they want offers around 160k they should list it lower.

Anyhow - personalised UK reg plate! ugh! :evil:

Cork is good in the sunshine! I like Cork, small enough to get through or around quickly and big enough that you don't keep meeting your next door neighbour!

Would that have been the dutchman on Calle Leitrim?

Re: jerez

I've been in Jerez on a few sundays, mostly after MotoGP races. Even then Jerez was dddddead! Nothing happening anywhere. Even on week nights its difficult to find restaurants, except in one area of the wide pedestrianised street. (sorry, can't remember its name!)

Re: Doyouspain . . . . Yes or no ?

You can't click on an icon and get that company. you can de-select each company and then its vehicles are removed. If you deselect until only 1 company is left, then those cars relate to that company. Playing around with the select/de-select you can see what cars are available from which company. F...

According to their website 3 won't give the unlock code for mifi, so you probably will have to get it unlocked in a 'unlock shop'.

Re: Community Internet via the TV

seems to me that its just turning your tv distribution system into a LAN (local area network) for internet signal distribution, using co-ax cable instead of cat5 cabling. the community will still have to pay for the internet connection. You would need a very high speed connection (depending on how m...
