Re: Palia Elektriki

Were you eating their fixed price lunch menu or a la carte? Meatballs or keftethes in Cyprus are not served in a sauce and tend to be quite a dry mix. We don't eat there more than a few times a year but have never been disappointed in the evenings with their excellent quality, beautifully served dis...

Well, it does when the authorities are in the middle of a crackdown.
On what basis do you make that claim?

Re: Cytavision

How can you say it makes no difference? On what basis do you make that claim? Common sense should tell people not to advertise their illicit activities on a public forum. Perhaps so but what I was trying to say, and obviously did not explain it clearly enough for you, is that discussing these parti...

Re: Cytavision

I must admit that in light of the recent issues, I am a bit surprised reading all of the recent threads as to how many people are happy to freely name their subscription companies, post the names and detail of new ones and to name their VPN providers. If someone was wanting to crack down on illegal...

Re: Cytavision

No the VPN account allows 5 units at one time.. We now have two laptops that are OK in getting iPlayers and one that isn't... The one difference is the odd one ha McAfee on it. I have suggested turning it off and trying again.. I bet you are right. When I got my new laptop I found the installed McA...

Re: Cytavision

Correct Pete, but the BBC are actively blocking VPN's although I suspect there will always be a "work around" I think Trev has been effected in the past. My VPN gives me a choice of 8 UK servers. Should the BBC block one, another will work. They then change IP addresses on any that are blocked. Pete

Re: Cytavision

The UK broadcasters have you 'blocked' if you are out of the UK.. And of course people have got used to watching 'Sky' TV.. If you access them through a VPN with UK servers you will not be blocked. We use an Android box with a VPN for live BBC, ITV etc and iPlayer. For films and TV series we use Te...

Re: Local IPT, Sewerage, Rubbish, Water, Electricity and Other Charges

Kannaviou:

Annual Council Tax: €55
Refuse collection: €60

Our water charge for 2017: €29.20

On paying these (we are only required to pay every December) the Council gave us a Xmas gift of 3 bottles of wine from our rather excellent village winery!

When they charged me for the first time some years ago, I asked them to cancel sending statements which they did and the fees disappeared.

Re: Car Insurance for TRNC (Update)

The TRNC land is in the EU so in theory EU insurance is valid there even though the TRNC is an illegal occupation only recognised by Turkey. However this does not help if the TRNC require you to take out their insurance. Unfortunately, EU insurances aren´t valid in the North. At least all my insura...

Re: Hearing Aid Batteries.

My hearing aids originally said "Battery" in a gruff, male American voice. I had them reprogrammed to give civilised bleep tones instead!

Re: Hearing Aid Batteries.

My hearing aid batteries last 5-7 days depending on use. Compared to Memory Man's post it strongly suggest it depends on the type of hearing aid which I guess is not surprising. The price for batteries over here is absurd. I buy them on Amazon, Hearing Direct or Ebay for around £13 for a box of 10 x...

PeteandSylvi, great song but how did you manage to bypass Dominics new plug in :lol:
I entered it as normal and wondered why it looked the same.

Investigating it will give Dominic something to do in his spare time.

There certainly was in Kannaviou. I watched it rise behind the hills opposite us.
