Re: What is. A VPN?

I checked out that TV site a few weeks ago. Unfortunately most of the UK programs are powered by Filmon. This means that when you are watching BBC1 for example, every 4 minutes or so it goes to a black screen for 10 seconds and then restarts / re boots .. Not sure what is going on Trev, but I use i...

Re: Uktv media

Morning. This looks like as Digby says just an update nothing to do with on going legal action, as he says just do a normal reboot and restart, I do not use this particular system but I'm sure the action posted by Digby is probably the answer. UKTV web page is running this morning. https://www.uktv....

Re: Pound doing better

Lincoln... That is most odd JIMX as I believe that when you arrived in Cyprus, it was the Cypriot Pound! :D Unless of course, I am getting you mixed up with someone else. Sorry, yes of course it was nearly 20 years ago and it would have been Cy £'s not euros.Just clicked the wrong button, do we all ...

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

How and why did people vote to leave without an inkling of what would happen? I have always found this amazing, at first I thought it was just a racist vote brought about by that fool Farage, but no, I do not think that is a valid reason, I await the future with trepidation of what the UK has done t...

Re: Pound doing better

When we arrived on Cyprus the UK pound was at Cy £1.42. the few cent rise has a very long way to go, this very small rise is just spectators, I think it will fall much further once the UK leaves the EU. I sincerely hope I am wrong because my pension relies on this, unfortunately I see no good news.

Sandy beach near Lemba.

The boat launch is near Riccos beach, the beach shot is of Sandy Beach near Lemba (that is what they call it) always quiet but swimming is best avoided if you read the large notice board.

Using a free VPN is a crazy idea. How do you think the companies make money? Answer: by selling your data - simple. Many videos on YouTube about this. I bet you think man did not go to the moon?
