We are still getting loads, had loads on Xmas Eve too and missed the end to a few films we were watching! It happens most days when it starts to get dark, the cause is probably everyone putting their lights on at the same time, I don't think the supply for this village is adequate. It's very annoyin...

Thanks all, it looks like I will have to be careful as some say many regions, so I would imagine the ISP would only define it a bank holiday if it's a national (all regions) holiday? So today for instance is "many regions", so I would imagine Wanadoo don't include that, I am not going to r...

Power Cuts

We are in Canillas de Aceituno (20 minutes up the mountain from Vinuela) and the last few days we have had about 20+ power cuts each day (only short one's never lasting more than 5 minutes).
