Please help me rehome my Lovely Izzy


 We wish to recommend the following person, who has just mended an under worktop fridge for us. Especially as certain kitchen suppliers washed their hands of the job!
All Domestic Appliances Repaired & Serviced
 - Washing machines, Fridges, Freezers, Dishwashers, Cookers & Hobs.
All repairs carried out by a qualified friendly engineer, with over 25 years experience:
Call:  Mick now on 616 370 539.
Highly recommended by Pat and Derek
Superb job!

Internet....Solution Needed

Does anybody know a local Internet company called TP Link?
Run by allegedly a Polish gentleman called Peter?
They have a mast on our house that has been damaged by the last power cut and no longer works!
 I am guessing it will affect people locally in Torrox, so if you have lost some band width maybe this is the reason?
The mast has been up for at least 5 years and the previous owners  didn’t have any paperwork to support the installation?
Can anyone help please? 608 662 717.
Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Help Needed with Computer

We recently were subjected to that ultimate invasion of personal space, called a burglary. 
We lost a lot, but one thing that creates a problem is my laptop, which has now been replaced. 
But nothing was backed up. 
They also took my iPod, complete with about 700 of my best music. 
This on the old computer would be displayed by going into iTunes. 
What I need to know is if I can get at it with my new computer,
or is it forever lost on the hard drive of my old computer? 
As, of course are all my photos and numerous other irreplaceables. 
 If someone could advise me I would be most grateful.

Canal+ Problem - Suggestion

We have Canal + and have also had this problem once or twice. 
We treated it like any other electronic device and switched it off completely at the box
(using the switch not the remote) and then after a minute or two switched it on again. 
It was all back to normal. 
If that doesn't work you will need to contact them, but it is now owned by Movistar. 
You can request that they phone you or use their online chat service:   Linda

Polar Air Air conditioning

We recently had air conditioning installed by Polar Air and I can highly recommend them they are efficient - professional - and know what they are doing.
The system they recommended is excellent and very quiet.
Very neat installation no mess

They are a month old so looking to move to their new home in about 3-4 weeks’ time.

I  recommend them. They are easy to deal with and rather cheap.

Advice Needed : Good Schools in La Axarquia

We are a Belgian-Spanish family and we'll be moving to La Axarquia in January.
We have an 8-year-old daughter and 6 year-old son who'll be attending school there.
We would like to get in touch with expats with children and learn their opinion on recommendable schools in the area.
Our idea is to first pick a school we like and then look for accommodation, so it might just as well be in Nerja or Rincon de la Victoria, or another village.
We would be very grateful for any advice.
Thanks in advance,
Kaat and Eduardo

Information wanted on 2 door Clio 7 year old car

Can anyone who owns an old Clio give some information about 'raising'the drivers seat? 
We have tried pumping the lever below the seat,which is supposed to raise the seat , to no avail. 
Also we have theEnglish manual but details are really sparse and not much use. 
Aswell as raising the seat it is very difficult to move the seat forward, in fact we would like more info on this car?

Selling on Airline Tickets - Problems

I am amazed at the number of times I have seen unwanted flight tickets put for sale / offer here on Digame.
It should come as no surprise that the admin costs to change names on flights can make your unwanted tickets worthless.
As an example, Ryan air charge 110 UKP per person to change the name on a ticket.
therefor adding 220 UKP to the 150 euro price of yesterdays bargain tickets to Bristol.
A quick check online showed that 2 new tickets on the very same flight would have cost a total of €323.98
I think you can see where I am going with this.
As frustrating and annoying these charges are, there is good reason.
Low-cost airlines have always made name changes expensive to avoid the process of “Scalping”
Where 3rd party websites would buy up all the cheapest seats and resell them for a huge profit.
Anyone who has ever tried to purchase concert tickets to a high profile event may wish this process was used there.
Rant over

Advice needed.

Due to move to our new home near Velez Malaga.
Have brought a 2004 RHD Freelander with a view to drive over and keep it in Spain.
Any advice ref registering, insurance and converting to LHD.
Also would like advice on where to use our jet ski and cost.
