Re: Cyta router and Mag 256 ...

According to the 256s' specs on the Infomir website it can run with 5GHz and 2.4Ghz. A wired connection will always be better.

Re: Flu Jabs..

Even if this is withdrawn I seem to recall that going to a local pharmacy and having the jab there was only about €7.50.
They even offered me the loaded syringe to take away and do it myself!

Re: IPTV Boxes

The use of Kodi using whatever was your preferred device, Android box, Firestick or Raspberry pi was pretty big in Cyprus for some years. It is now dropping right off. The quality of live tv streaming was nowhere near as constant as that from a streaming service into a pure MAG device such as the In...

Re: Flip Flop Warning

I had a friend killed in an RTA when the driver who was wearing flip flops had one come off and slide under the brake pedal. When it came time to press the brake the pedal would not depress as far as needed. Next thing major impact and a dead buddy.

Re: 2019 a difficult year for tourism but no need to panic, Deputy Minister says

Living in the east of the island, whilst it may have been quite a month or two back the local beaches are mobbed at the moment. Not that many Brits as far as I can tell, but plenty of Russian speakers and of course the summer shutdown mobs from Nicosia.

Re: Pachyammos Beaches

I had a similar experience a couple of years back when a fish, assumed at the time it was a Barracuda, tried to bite off a dolphin shaped metallic logo on the side of my swimming trunks. I saw the fish approach and it quite forcefully bumped into my hip before I cuffed it.

Re: What happened to the Boris posts

Yes if I recall correctly we had to have Council of Ministers approval to purchase our house and that took about 2 or 3 weeks only. Just did the old Alien registration and got the brown book with the famous "pink slip" receipt. Eventually the system said we needed to apply for MEU1 which was easy en...
