Re: [email protected] PIN

I've just successfully applied for a [email protected] pin, but it was not easy. Thanks to the information on this forum, I was only able to succeed by entering the expiry date of my old Residencia card, which expired in 2009. If I hadn't retained it as an identification document, I would have been well and tru...

No problems here, either. Often get that message on various programs but never on Thunderbird. I'm on Windows 10, home.

Re: Moving in: Gas; Concrete and Sheds!

Suggest you look at www.keter.com for sheds. I bought a timber shed several years ago but it did not survive the extremes of weather (probably due to me not looking after it properly!). Subsequently, I purchased a Keter shed which is showing no problems at all after three years. 8" x 6" and about €1...

Re: UK Petition to maintain healthcare reciprocal arrangements.

"Aquí se les regala a los pensionistas" (Here we give them to the pensioners).

Not true, recently we had to pay for medicines on prescription for my wife who is retired, as am I.
More scaremongering, methinks.

Re: Kindle Paperwhite - Books Queuing. Modem Issue?

My recent experience tells me that, although I request download to my Kindle, it downloads to the cloud instead and I have to transfer from there using "Manage my Kindle devices" on the Amazon site.

Re: Say no to Windows 10

Patricia, if you Google a search for W7 games for W10, you can download them and they run quite successfully. I quite like W10, except for the fact I can no longer elect to download updates when I wish. Any recommendations for that, Enrique?
