Not taking any chances here Enrique: IE 11 latest. Windows 10 latest update. Thinkpad 540p.

Re: Two digital cert applications?

Enrique, one thing that puzzled me was that our friend was surprised that I would generate my own code. She says that the information office across the road could generate it for me if I wished on production of my docs. I thought, if somebody needs to get them to generate the code for them how the h...

Re: Two digital cert applications?

So far so good. Codes printed and docs gathered, copies made. It's a happy coincidence that the girl processing applications at our ayuntamiento is a friend. I Facebook messaged her today to get the hours she can do this. I may have mentioned before that I'm impressed our little village (pop. 4500) ...

Re: Two digital cert applications?

OK Enrique. I'm planning to get the codes tomorrow evening and go to our ayuntamiento on Wednesday morning. I'm impressed they are able to handle it, a little village like ours!

Re: Two digital cert applications?

Thanks Sid. I'm wary of the instruction not to change anything between obtaining the codes and downloading the certs. Being a compulsive PC fiddler I think I'll shut this laptop down immediately after printing the codes and not restart until the allocated time after going through ID verification. In...

Two digital cert applications?

I am going to try getting our digital certs this week, one for myself and one for my wife. I have read the FAQ and the relevant web pages and feel reasonably confident [touches wood]. Is it feasible to apply for two codes on the same machine at the same time or is it advisable to do one, obtain the ...

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

A note of thanks to Sid for the codigo de baja instructions. I followed them this morning and, despite a shop clerk who wasn't the most knowledgeable, after filling in the same details on four different screens, I received my receipt for Domo phone and router. Thank you Sid.

Agave nectar...

To those who have experienced this ingredient: is honey an effective substitute? I have a roast chicken recipe that is specifying the nectar.

Re: VPN blocking - following the BBC comes Netflix...

When I spoke to my VPN provider they acknowledged the problem with BBC but said just keep trying their different servers which , I suppose, agrees with the Guardian article about the 'cat and mouse' scenario. For the time being smart dns works ok and is less hassle than playing VPN suck-it-and-see!

Re: VPN blocking - following the BBC comes Netflix...

I hope they are right but the BBC is making a pretty good fist of blocking VPNs at the moment. Fortunately they haven't cracked smart DNS yet.

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

Thanks for the info Sid. I am just about to cancel and that will be a great help. he bonly difference is we will dispense with our landline altogether and use our (Vodafone) mobiles as the only calls we get on the landline are cold calls.

Agreed. Always complain but also always compliment good service. I sent an email to SEUR and Fotocasion thanking them for exceptional service.

Re: Epic fail MRW and SEUR

Just received an email from SEUR saying a parcel will arrive tomorrow. It came last week. Top marks to UPS. Text message and if I'm not in, they leave a note saying where in the village they have left it. Leica dealer in Madrid handed SEUR a small parcel at 12:00 today. Delivered 17:58 today. Leica...

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

Hello. My location details are on the right. I don't recognise that building name. It doesn't sound like one in our village. Perhaps you are confusing me with somebody else?

Re: Movistar ADSL price increase...

CTV are coming to see me this evening Mary. If, like Wi-Net, there is no contract requirement I will see if they can install their internet without me cancelling Movistar until I can check out their service reliability.

Thanks Flexo but with two fibre optic services passing the door I won't be going to satellite.
