Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Do others have a credit card with their bank? I do and it works slightly different from the typical UK one because It works in a calendar month and automatically takes payment on the the first of the month for all transaction made the previous month.

Re: Best VPN?

Another disadvantage with the router solution is that generally you don't actually install anything, rather and this is assuming your router supports vpn, and you have access to it is that you configure your router to point to a specific vpn server and set the user/password. Job done, but should you...

Re: Best VPN?

I thought you didn’t need to touch the router with a VPN. I understood if you downloaded it on to say an Amazon firestick it was done from there. Correct, you can either put it on your router or device permitting on the device. I have used smartdnsproxy vpn for some years now. I find if i installed...

Re: New Indian resturant in Torrox Costa

Went here last night. Excellent meal and as has been mentioned some unusual dishes specific to them. We had Hundy and the strangest looking pasanda ever. Thouroughly enjoyed the food and are going back Saturday to try other specials... On a different tack the waiter told us that our favourite Jaipur...

Re: can't access 'portalweb.prpmalaga.es'

Guess it means securing the site is easier. Doubt the web managers are considering absent foreign home owners. After all they will get their money eventaully plus possibly late payment fine.. Win win for them.

Re: can't access 'portalweb.prpmalaga.es'

It may be because you are in the UK. With my UK vpn active i can't connect to this site, however if I turn my vpn off i connect immediately. Ive noticed this more frequently recently that an increasing number of spanish sites won't let you connect from a UK address. If you have vpn service available...

Re: Google Ads

Become my default action now to start up Edge or whatever they call it now if a site doesn't work as expected with Brave/Chrome. Often that cures the problem.

Did you try rotating the blades with the fan switched on?
Re-reading my post perhaps it wasn't clear that the test should be done with the fan switched on.

Dunno if thay are all the same but my Fantasia ceiling fans have 3 capacitors, start and run for the different speeds.

Re: Ceiling fan not working, but light is OK

Quote possibly it's the start capacitor rather than the motor. They can be replaced fairly easily. ...but I guess you've got to know someone who knows how do that.

Re: Flying

Whether we fly or not this year is dependant on a vaccination becoming available. Hence 'maybe' No jab no fly. Nor would we fly the kids here. Already canned our grandkids visit in August, and our trips back, including Christmas.

Re: Salud Responde App Working or is it down?

Maybe old news. The Salud Responde app now has a coronavirus section. Select your registration in the app and a new purple icon ha appeared. Contains information and a symptom checker that you can fill in and send off for a diagnosis.

Only in Spanish, like the rest of the app.
