Re: Windows 10 1803 Update

Hola Enrique,

After the update just using the computer normally, sometimes there is a battery icon, and sometimes not. It always reappears after a restart option instead of close down and then open up later - so far !!!

Re: Windows 10 1803 Update

Hola

Took hours on my three year old laptop (cheap Acer) and has taken four hours so far on the office HP laptop! The battery level icon disappears every so often so you don't know how much battery you have left.

Sad news about homegroup - have used it extensively

Re: Transfer of ownership

Hola
I would assume that it is the norm to process the forms at your local trafico (and pay the transfer tax locally). The seller does not have to be present

Re: Amazon Echo Dot

I got one for Christmas and set it up in my Daughter's house in Scotland. All worked okay and I downloaded the controlling application to my phone. Came home and it would do nothing. Wouldn't even connect to my WiFi. Now I know nothing about computers but by some good luck I got it working, in a fa...

Re: Windows 10 or Mac?

Hola My phone has "Hi Bixby" & "OK Goggle" but I use an Android streaming box for You tube music through the TV. I should add that my phone comes with a DEC docking station so I can use the TV as a large screen computer - it was incredibly fast when I tried it but then again ...

Re: Windows 10 or Mac?

Hola

I go for Windows; it is used by many more people - if you Google it you'll find roughly 80% Windows and 20% Mac. There are specialist programs for specific purposes - but ignoring those I'd buy a Windows computer every time.

The problem is one of "Administrative silence"; after six years (currently proposed to be eight years) these illegal builds become "recognised" unless someone has taken action against them. Near me they are still building without permission and unless a neighbour puts a denuncia ...

Re: SETTING UP A NEW GROUP

Hola
Yes there are forms - but from the Junta not the Ayuntamiento. The President, Secretary and Treasurer are required to be named and if I remember right, 12 names of "responsible people"

The above was 2010 so well out of date - but gives an idea so you need to ask

Re: Smart TVs with UK apps

Hola

I seem to remember that the TV companies are now having a spat in that they are making their own software which is not necessarily compatible with normal Android systems. The view being taken was that every new model would get further along the diversity path

Re: Well Water

If you rent your house out, then the law has changed regarding getting the water in potable (drinking water) state.

Re: Question for El Cid - rainfall

Hola I hate to dispel the myth but rain gauges are automatic these days, the cup fills and the weight means the heavy side rotates downwards which allows the cup to empty- so it rises only to fill again. The whole station is pretty much automatic even having a solar panel to recharge the batteries. ...

I have a weather station www.chiclana-weather-station.org and the rainfall for 2017 stands at 466mm; I would expect in excess of 600mm a year - 900mm being a wet year.
