Re: Desktop - Install Windows 10 Home.

Thanks for the reply. I understand what you have said. My win 8.0 installation is Spanish with a language pack added. It came with no license/key . I had loads of problems and noted that the diagnostic/recovery programmes were in Spanish. I subsequently installed Linux Mint (excellent OS) alongside ...

Re: Renewing Certificado FNMT

Update - My wife and I now have a [email protected] each using our own mobile numbers. It was an easy and quick process using our current digital certificates. When tested on the DGT site to check my points I needed to input my NIE and Support number to obtain the Pin on the App. Re renewing the digital certifi...

Re: Renewing Certificado FNMT

Thanks -I will ponder all the comments. Have not got the TIE yet because we took the view there was no urgency or legal need and best to wait till after we have the vaccine.

Re the [email protected] I have a note on file dating back to May 2017 that C0 needs to be added before the NIE number when applying?

Re: Car Sagging Roof Liner - Spray Adhesive Recommendation

Thanks everyone for your comments and advice. My Mondeo is a 1.8 TD Estate Ghia (with real plastic wood dashboard !) owned from new, regularly serviced and first registered in UK in Jan 2000 and now with 200,000 miles on the clock. So worth nothing but very fit-for-purpose for the wilds of Galicia. ...

Car Sagging Roof Liner - Spray Adhesive Recommendation

My Ford Mondeo has developed a "sagging roof lining" in several places. I have googled the problem which seems common in older cars. One pragmatic and economical solution is to use a suitable spay adhesive. Amazon UK has several products with good reviews for this particular problem. Howev...

Re: 4G Connectivity Puzzle

Thanks Enrique,

I shall read and play.

I presume one is in the hands of the ISP and whilst the cause of a connection problem may be identified there is nothing you can do about it.

Cheers

Re: 4G Connectivity Puzzle

Thanks Enrique, Problem last year was limited to one phone/sim only. Low speed was due to the data allowance being exceeded one month which should have cleared when additional data was added. Furthermore it should have cleared the following month when a new payment period started. Neither happened a...

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Nationwide Visa Gold Credit Cards - Our current cards were due to expire 02/21. We have recently received new cards valid 12/20 - 02/24. I presume they were issued to beat final Brexit at end of year but not sure why.

Mobile Phone - Data Speed

We live in the campo and rely on mobile networks. We have three lines with Masmovil, all showing 4G connectivity. One line for the last month has very slow data. The other two are excellent. If I move the problem sim card to another device the problem moves with the sim. We have been sent a replacem...

Re: La Renta 2018 UK Rental Income - Tenant Identification

I think you still have to enter a number in the box 0075. You put an X in the box below (0076) if the "NIF" is for a different country.
