Re: Water pumped from the sea to the land for Cyprus' high-rise buildings

I don't really know much about high rise buildings but I've seen our company drive piles for Fractionator Columns over 120 metres high and guess it's the same technology used. Our crews drove a 40ft pile down and then welded another on top and kept doing that until it met the friction criteria. They...

Re: They're dropping like flies

Is it not a good attitude to take pride in whatever you're doing, and in so doing make it as accurate as possible? I’ve no doubt people do make it as accurate as possible, however everyone judges things differently. Some judge more than others it seems..... I can't recall ever judging or commenting...

Re: Flat Roof Sealant

I had a company round to give a price on external insulation and they confirmed that we needed vents as we had mould problems in two of our bedrooms. I said exactly the same about leaving Windows open etc and was told the mould is caused by cold points and condensation. I've lowered and put 100mm of...

Re: Flat Roof Sealant

What you need is a vent installed and the ceiling painted with Fungitex paint. It's lack of ventilation that causes mould.

Re: Cyprus submitted application to enter Schengen area in September

Jim Ward
I think you will find that Turkish Cypriots have to apply for a ROC passport in the government area. Presently Cyprus lets Schengen visa holders enter the government controlled area even though it's not yet an official member.

Re: They're dropping like flies

I agree with Austin 7. It's no great hardship to check what you have written.
As he said, badly written English confuses people whose first language isn't English and this applies to a number of contributors on the forum.

Believe me it's improved immensely over the years especially since they moved from the old Colonial Buidings. They all scored a perfect ten for rudeness and you just had to grin and bear it.

Terrible times, man's inhumanity to men, women and children. Driven out into the desert to die by the thousands. The evidence is there.

You are correct Lloyd; talking to my Leaver sister the other day and during the whole conversation she was complaining about how the cost of her weekly food shop had risen by nearly 50% over the last three years.
