Re: Laptop internet connection

Assuming you are in Spain, you might of noticed that it is very hot here. :wave: Does the fan work in your Laptop. A few years ago mine failed in one of my laptops so it got rather warm. Fairly easy job to replace. On the other hand the fan and internal might be very dusty, so a good blow out with a...

Re: Laptop internet connection

As Enrique says, more info is required.
Do you run SmartyDns perchance?
I have, very occasionally got a similar message that was, in fact, generated by SmartyDns

Re: Water pipe blanking plugs

That could be for a copper pipe, plastic pipe all of different sizes. Could be a solder on end cap for copper, a compression end cap for copper or plastic etc etc. I suggest show them a photo of the pipework as it is, complete with tap and ask for a tapon. I think tapon is more generally used, certa...

Certainly Gina isn't getting a router from me. I have a few spare ones but I never offered Gina one.
Or is there another Gerry?

Re: Router

Originally routers worked on the 2.4Ghz waveband but with so many devices using WiFi these days the waveband is getting crowded. Routers working on the 2.4GHz and the "new" 5GHz waveband were introduced. So any device that worked on the 5GHz waveband could use the less crowded 5GHz waveban...

Re: Router

Agree with elusive's post above. Before you spend money on a new router it would, in my opinion, be a good idea asking whoever told you you need a new router to explain what they meant by "to run my firestick i need a 5.5 something or other". I haven't a clue as to what they mean and it's ...

Re: What are these cacti?

The polythene sheeting has been removed from the roof of the greenhouse and quite a few of the plants are now in flower.
Where the flowers are dying back I can see the fruit developing.
Definitely dragon fruit.

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

I have seen the dermatologist in Hospital Comarcal and was very pleased and impressed by him.
I went to him because I was not impressed by the dermatologist at Clinica Rincon in Rincon.

Re: Minimum Memory etc to run Win 10 Build 1903 on my Laptop

Forgive me if I'm missing something. You ask can you run "Win 10 Build 1903" but you say you have "Operating System Windows 10 Home (x64) Version 1903 (build 18362.267)" installed. So you should know if you can run it, I assume you are using the "Operating System Windows 10 ...

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

Perhaps I'm lucky but I haven't, as yet, had any problems with Win 10 installs and updates on my PC or 2 of my laptops.
The 3rd laptop runs Win 7 and always will. Just use it for playing dance music.
None of them are new or high spec. The PC original run Win XP and the laptops Win 7.

Re: Dog mess rules - Ronda area

. What is the bottle for? Are you expected to wash away dog urine? Are these general rules in Andalusia.? Don't know whether or not it a rule but noticed a woman, in Torre del mar, with a bottle washing down the area that her dog had just urinated on. I believe that if you add vinegar to the water ...

My WiFi comes out of my data allowance.
Don't particularly trust Google not to loose my photos or not to "look" at them to use for marketing purposes or to see who I know or where I have travelled.

The majority don't have, or possibly want, an iPhone. :wave:
Don't have an unlimited data allowance.
Prefer to keep my photos on my PC and keep them backed up on an external HD.

Just to follow up SL's post. Your house wall build seems to mine. It is constructed of two walls made of random sized rocks. the cavity is then filled with small stones, earth and anything that happened to be lying around. When you make a hole in one side of the wall, depending on how well the rocks...

Re: moto (again)

It's certainly in the seller's interest to arrange owner transfer.
If ownership not transferred then any fines for speeding, parking or whatever, will come to him and not the new owner/ offender.
