Re: Well, the whatsapp's gone quiet!

When something is free on the Internet, you and I are the product!
Whatsapp must have a huge linked database of telephone numbers and people links all around the world. Knowledge is power.

Re: New RCD fitted keeps tripping

It's often damp somewhere which causes tripping out. Maybe in a socket, but sometimes in an appliance, like a dishwasher, washing machine etc. Darned annoying, I know, good luck, keep at it you'll find it.

Re: IPTV disappearing

If you knew the sort of people who are cracking the code to enable you to use these TV channels, you wouldn't bother. They are criminals of the same type who write ransomware, bots to send spam emails from websites, and hackers who will gladly use your details to make money for themselves. If you do...

Re: Alert Cops

Do they want your location in degrees minutes and seconds, (e.g. 37 degrees 20 mins 3 secs North) or in degrees and decimal degrees (example 37.3333 degrees N) as many satnavs use?

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

Windoze really do need to work out why customers are having to have so much downtime installing these updates. As Sid says other operating systems can be updated in minutes, why can't Microsoft's?

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

The new version of windows does not have "homegroup" any more. They have changed the way to share files on a network. Another problem to create a work around.

Windows 10 - 1903

Just did this very major OS update and it took over 2.5 hours on my fairly rapid Acer Aspire laptop.
All my settings reset to Windows defaults as if they know best! Just about set up back how I want it now.

It told me it had to be done, as support for W10 April 2018 version will end in November.

Re: Snake on Bougainvillea

It's a whip snake, 100%. I studied snakes all the years I was in Spain. Never saw an adder as they are not present in Spain.
Sometimes people think viperine snakes, which love water, are adders, but they are certainly not.

I have done it and documented it on my website. It's from 2015, but the procedure is still the same.

Re: Does the team think

Could be just dry conditions. However,as it is happening to several bushes/trees in proximity it is likely to be a disease.
Maybe root crown rot?

Re: International Driving Licence

The fact you have to have your proper licence with you to validate the IDP just shows what a pointless rip-off it really is.

Re: Strange email event

I'm not sure why Gmail do this. Wouldn't it be better if they only allowed identical details and rejected anything else? Spammers are always looking for opportunities to exploit and I think this weakens our defences somewhat. In reply to the OP, I would think the person making the booking made a mis...

Re: notification from bank re NIE renewal

As usual there seems to be confusion in this thread between an NIE and a certificado de registro de ciudadano de la unión.
It's not surprising considering the terms used and that the authorities also confuse the two!

Re: New Electricity Connection.

Perhaps electricity prices and taxes will go down in Spain with the advent of a new socialist government?
