Hi

What I did was to remove the blind in total, then put the broken slats near the bottom, (so no weight) and therefore moving all the other slats up. It was a simple job, the worst thing was threading it back in.

Hi,

No not sexism, just what most of the 100 or so customers have said. Tax from hacienda is for up to 14 year old cars, UNLESS within 30 days of deciding to "abandon England" you change the plates.

Hi

Bajas cost 37 euros and to get one you need an "acta de manifestacion" from a notary if not going in person. They are more expensive in person and you have to swear an oath in front of the consul.

3G

The telefonica 3G system at 384 Kbs is what I am using, faster than dial up and radio phones, but slower than proper broadband. However an acceptable substitute that can use VOIP. Check out your local (friendly?) telefonica shop using the magic words UMTS/3G and PCMCIA card
