Re: 2 New Italian Restaurants

Went to La Bella Torino last Saturday eve, very average, 6 out 10 at best, my fish was definitely not fresh and the lasagne was very "ready meal for one" in appearance. To top it off they had run out of ice cream. Maybe an off night but won't be rushing back.

Re: Uk TV

Rule of thumb....a VPN will Slow your internet connection down whereas DNS Doesn't. Have a read here and this will give you advice and info for you're particular needs. A few here use Smarty as I do and I find their service superb, there are various other available to you. https://www.smartydns.com/...

Re: Windows 10 or Mac?

Mac by a country mile, simple answer because they work and they have a far superior build quality and infinitely more user friendly and far better quality components, yes you can get laptops of similar quality build and components but you'll be approaching Mac prices and still stuck with an appallin...

Too Smart to be Scammed Test

Re: iPad lightening charger cables

As Sid rightly says, there are plenty of adaptors out there that will convert a whole range of phones to wireless charging a good example is the Powermat that would charge an iPhone 4 way back in 2010.....so nothing different or ground breaking with the 2015 LGG4, which you had to buy as extra the c...

Re: iPad lightening charger cables

Without actually seeing your charger to me it says there is a fault with the iPad Port or it has some lint/debris in the Port causing a bad/intermittent connection. I had a similar problem awhile ago and used iphone torch to look inside and then used a very small bristle brush and gently cleaned awa...

Re: Ping speed

Wicksey, before you do anything (unless you've already done this) I would suggest you turn off and unplug your router for a minute and then reboot. Then go into Smarty and re validate your IP and then check if this has solved your issues. SmartyDNS should NOT affect your speeds or ping.

Re: Choosing / changing electricity contract

Your "Potencia Contratada" of 9.873 is way OTT and is a major factor in your very high bills. From what you say in your post I would suggest you go to Endesa and get it reduced to around 4.00 which is ample and would be far cheaper. Go to the local office and they should be able to calcula...
