Get_iplayer is no longer working

Hi there Digamites
some of you may have noticed that the superb Get_iplayer program has ceased to work, regrettably the BBC (God Bless them) have slipped one in under the radar by changing the format of BBC iplayer stream thus making Get_iplayer more or less useless.
I for one will be keeping an ear and an eye on the tech sites from one of which the solution will arise (we hope).
Anybody else who has or gets some form of useful update please publish on Digame.
Sorry to be the bearer of ill tidings

Location, Location, Location

Could you please remind people to put a location when they make a recommendation?
Although the fish and chips sounds great, I have no idea where “Johnny Q’s” is in the Costa del Sol.
There are many such recommendations that just give a name without a location or address.
Some of the places sound interesting, but without some idea of where it is, frankly, I cannot be bothered to find it.
If they just said beach front at Torrox or town centre at Nerja or something, something in Fuengirola,
I would have an idea of whether it is close enough to me to go.
As an example see this in the same email = What´s on Next Afternoon Quiz will be at Ritchie's Bar

What´s on The Phoenix Club are off to Madrid in May 2015.

What´s on   The Phoenix Club are off to Madrid in May 2015. 
Staying for 5 days and 4 nights at the 3* Hotel Regente,
situated on the Gran Via in the heart of Madrid in walking distance to all the attractions.
Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain.
The population of the city is roughly 3.3 million and the entire population of the Madrid metropolitan area is calculated to be around 6.5 million. 
It is the third-largest city in the European Union, after London and
Berlin, and its metropolitan area is the third-largest in the European Union after London and Paris.
The city is located on the Manzanares River in the centre of both the country and the Community of Madrid (which comprises the city of Madrid, its conurbation and extended suburbs and villages); this community is bordered by the autonomous communities of Castile and León and Castile-La Mancha. 
As the capital city of Spain, seat of government, and residence of the Spanish monarch,
Madrid is also the political, economic and cultural centre of Spain.
While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets.
Its landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid; the Royal Theatre with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro Park, founded in 1631; the 19th-century
National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain's historical archives; a large number of National museums, and the Golden Triangle of Art, located along the Paseo del Prado and comprising three art museums: Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía Museum, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which completes the shortcomings of the other two museums.
Cibeles Palace and Fountain have become the monument symbol of the city.
Madrid is also home to two world-famous football clubs in Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid.

3* hotel accommodation
Bed, Breakfast & evening meal

Opinion

My husband Terry and I moved to Torrox in 1989.  The house had no electricity and no drinking water. 
In that year, there were massive floods and there was no way to get to the village as we were cut off by the swollen river.
 On another occasion my twin brother died in America and the Guardia were sent to find me as there were no mobile phone in those days.
Digame has been fantastic, the last time I personally used it was to oppose the "refurbishment" of Torrox village. 
I have to laugh now when I see some of the items that people complain about.
The most helpful people to us have always been the Spanish, we have known our neighbours for many years and they have become friends. 
Thankyou Jane for the work you do and frankly I think it would be nice if people who wish to have Digame now paid an annual subscription to you.  It would certainly cut out the time wasters. 
TM
Note from Editor - Tina insisted that I publish her email although normally I would not put the "Thanks" into Digame.
Fortunately, I love doing this Blog (90% of the time)  - how else could I get to know things before other people do ?! 

There is certainly no way I would ever seek to earn an income from it......time-waster or not

Civil Service Pensions Responses

(1)
This month I received a pay advice form MyCSP and wondered who they were as there was no previous information given that pensions were changing form Capita which has always worked perfectly. My pension did not arrive on the due date and after a couple of days I decided to try and ring them.The number given on the pay advice as a number for overseas number is answered by a message saying that it is no longer valid...great. The alternative number I never managed to get through to just a "pip, pip,pip" My husband has a Teachers pension and they gave me an alternative number for CSP but that too was invalid. It's reassuring to know that if you have a problem you cannot contact them! What would happen in case of bereavement? Yesterday my pension arrived thank goodness. I know that those in UK that have a pension were informed of the change but don't know if they have suffered a delay. I am thinking of writing and pointing the problem out to them.On the reverse of the pay advice they say " MyCSP's vision is to give outstanding customer service.If you do not feel we have achieved this please let us know" .This is a new payment office with stationery that already fails to give an accurate phone number or a number that can be obtained. Get writing.

Pension was paid on time
also city bank is an internet only bank and got 61% satisfaction rating  in the Which bank review (mid range)
FYI the BACS and CHAPS payment system in the UK went kerunk on the 20th for one day

The post about civil service pensions came as a surprise to me too.  I also get a UK pension which had previously been administered by Capita, and likewise have received no notification, even though notifications were supposedly sent out to all members of the scheme. 
More information about the new service and details of the changeover are at the following links:

The email address for making enquries is contactcentre@mycsp.co.uk   and the telephone line for overseas enquiries is +44 1903 835902.

My pension was received as normal and on time in October. Since early 2013 I have been dealing with MyCSP Ltd (Civil Service Pensions). They were the body that calculated what my pension would be if I took it early and they worked in conjunction with Capita according to a leaflet I received in April 2014. To quote from it: "My CSP manages the contract with Capita; the company that pays your pension."  I have not been aware of any recent changes but can only confirm that MyCSP have been in existence for some time and seem to have taken over the work originally carried out by the PCSPS (Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme) later changed to Civil Service Pensions.

Ñew Book out

Now most of the faithful are back from their summer holidays, I would like another chance to tell the Digamites that I have a new book out, but this time in an ebook format only.  Those of you that enjoyed my other autobiographies,  Not Joined Up (The Novel) and my Streetwise articles should also get a few laughs out of this one. I have never been any good at book marketing, and its gets harder, rather than easier, the more books I produce.  So please, give it a try, and if you enjoy it put a review on Amazon, if you don't ... don't bother!  It should especially appeal to all the baby boomers amongst you.

Providing the missing link between my previous autobiographical books, Working Progress tells the story of my "career", from drawing office to computer graphics, via a Post Office, Garage, Local Government, a hospital and a school.  It illustrates the changes in working practices over the years, from the self-reliant and common sense of the 60's and 70's to the team-led insanity of the 80's and 90's.  This may be one person's journey, but to a large extent, it is everybody's history of employment during the second half of the twentieth century.

Is this your cat ?

This beautiful young cat has been visiting the Pavo Real bar for the last few weeks.
It is very friendly and appears well nourished.   The Pavo Real bar is
on theTorrox to Competa road at 8.5 Km.
Call Sean on 633105637 to let us know what you would like to do,
either
leave it alone as it is just out for a stroll
or
catch it so you can take it home.

Note from the Editor....

My Editorial “Policy” is  rather whimsical at times, so I thought I would clarify my approach to including the "Opiniions" of our subscribers.....
Basically, keep those opinions Polite and Concise
Now that I'm in my more mature years, I’m long in experience but occasionally short in patience – especially when it comes to the more emotive issues such as (usually) animals.
What I will not get involved in is refereeing exchanges between correspondents.
I generally air a few emails and then issue an “Edict” that draws the subject thread to an end and – once I’ve dropped the drawbridge – I try never to raise it again  unless it’s for a really, really good reason.
As Editor I receive untold lunatic emails daily – from all over the world!
I never respond to a single one – there is nothing more infuriating than being ignored….. as we all know!
I commend this approach to you all.
And Bascially - if you can't be polite & kind - please don't email me!
Thanks
Best wishes
Jane

TV Engineer Needed Please

Can anyone recommend a TV/ telecom engineer who can sort our system out!
We have all the components, Landline with Movistar Broadband, Minix Media hub.
We do need an extension to the telephone line putting in on the first floor and the whole thing setting up.
 It was working fine when we left in May, but nothing now we have returned .
Telefonica engineer came and said upstairs extension was no good and said to ask private contractor to replace it.
Also we have had the Minix box updated.
Can somebody help two technophobe wrinklies ?

Electricity Prices - Response

Lee,  
Your best option would be to seek the advice of a suitably qualified electrician. 
Why not try Oscar Pinazo who has been mentioned on Digame several times? 
He seems to offer a comprehensive service - and speaks English if that is an issue for you.
We have no experience of running swimming pools, but for ordinary domestic use we could not  recommend more highly Miguel Alcántara (business name Alcatel) who lives in Vélez-Málaga, both for speed and quality of service as well as prices (Spanish only) 670706597.
Best of luck,
Linda

Organic Turkey Response

You can order organic grain fed turkey from Sugar and Spice in Competa.
We ordered one for our Thanksgiving dinner last year and it was fantastic.
We are planning on ordering again this year.

Restaurant Recommendation

Just thought I would let into a little secret.
We went to Johnny Q's on Saturday night for an evening meal.
Chose the Beer Battered Fish and chips, what a brilliant surprise.
The batter was crisp, light and fluffy, chips, garden peas and tartar sauce.
We really enjoyed this and will certainly return to try other dishes on the menu.
Give it a try.
Marlene

Thanks

Thanks
Just a quick note to say thank you to Digame for allowing me to advertise my model cars ( now sold ) and thanks to all the people who contacted me . I would highly recommend Digame to anyone wishing to sell anything and wanting a quick response .  Regards, Paul.

What’s the story behind hashing – who started it and why?

History of Hashing
Those of you who’ve read our recent article on Digame or in the free English language publications will know that hashing is becoming a very popular form of exercise with the ex- pat community.
Axarquia Hash House Harriers (AHH) is going from strength to strength with new members joining us all the time.
Hashing originated in 1938 in Malaya (now Malaysia) when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run and rid themselves of the weekend’s excesses. The run was designed around the traditional British paper chase or “hare and hounds” format. Harriers reaching the end of the trail would partake of beer, ginger beer and cigarettes. Hashing died out after the Japanese invasion of Malaya but was resuscitated in the 60s in Singapore and spread through the Far East and the South Pacific, Europe and North America expanding during the mid-1970s. Today there are thousands of hashing clubs in all parts of the world.
The objectives of the Hash House Harriers were recorded in 1950 as follows:

Have you received your UK civil service pension on time this month?

My pension from the UK civil service which is due for payment on the 25th October (payable on the 24th) this month because the 25th is a Saturday has not been received.
On enquiring I discovered the contact was awarded to a company called MyCSP on the 18th September instead of the original contactor Capita. In addition the bank used has changed from Western Union Business Solutions to Citibank.
All pensioners covered by this change they tell me have received notice, I'm still waiting for mine!
Capita have paid my pension for 8 years on the dot  on the due date and my fear is the government have accepted a lower priced bid for an inferior service.
Contrary public opinion most "Gold Plated" public service pensions are under £4K per annum and form an important part of a retirement income.
SO HAVE YOU GOT YOUR PENSION?

Smoked Fish - Responses

(1)
The smoked products shop is on the road leading down to the Paseo in Torrox Costa, not sure of the name, it may be Avenida Andalucia, but there is a Cajamar bank on one corner and a phone cabin on the other. About half way down on the right past the Bar Mediterraneo is a little shop that does smoked products.  They are German people but speak English. However it is not like English smoked food.  I bought some smoked halibut as they don't do haddock and it was a very strong, heavy flavour.  I love kippers and smoked haddock, English style, but I couldn't eat this.
Carole
(2)
These people are German, and they moved just behind the corner on the Paseo Maritimo.
Ludo
(3)
Dear David,
German fish smokery moved to larger premises since 1st October(good for them)!) and is now on Torrox promenade.  If you follow the lane from Cajamar down to the sea and turn right, they are the in the second building (former pizzeria).
Their smoked fish is delightful as well as home made crab, prawn and herring salads. I am their regular customer and will suggest they started smoking chicken joints as well.
And now they are open Sundays too! The owners are giggly and friendly. Serving meals made of their products. Never tried though yet. Will do one day.
Hope it helps,
Julia

Electricity Prices....

I know that electricity supply prices have risen all over the EU, but I was wondering if there were any Digamites who could advise me on my electricity supply requirements as my last bill has hit new heights!
I have a supply with Endesa on Tarifa Ahorro, I have 3 Phase supply (it was in the house when we bought it) of 2.1A and 13,85kW potencia. Our last usage was 1,254 kWh for a period of two months. The total bill is around €380.
Many people have said to me that my 'potencia' is too high and that I could run a factory with the supply!  However, I don't want to downgrade to find that the trip fuses keep going, something that we experienced in a previous property.
We have three air-conditioning/heater units, which are not used much at all, we have gas hot water and no central heating, we do have quite a large pool with a 0,75kW pump, obviously this is running 8 hours a day in the summer months. The bills do drop down to about €300 in the non Summer months  with the reduction in the pool pump usage.
I did some time ago, go into the Endesa office in Nerja to enquire about possibly downgrading my potencia, but they couldn't advise me by how much, saying that I would need an electrician to calculate my requirements.
As a guide my neighbour's house which is of similar size has 2.0A 4,6kW single phase supply, his recent usage was almost identical (1,246 kWh) for two months but only coming in at €250 due to the much smaller potencia, however, they use gas for cooking, we use electricity.
Does anyone have any experience of down-grading from three phase to single phase and/or approximate costs involved with Endesa?
Any constructive advice would be gratefully received.

Organic Turkey

Does anyone know where I can buy organic Turkey. I have found an online shop but I was hoping I would find somewhere fairly local. loueverson@gmail.com.

Orange Trees

My orange trees too have blossom. 
 This will fail to fruit unless the trees are watered continuously from now on. 
In Florida the big orange producers control production by turning off irrigation until the trees look distressed, then they water excessively and this produces blossom and therefore fruit. 
In this way they can have fruit all year round in stead of seasonal. 
I think the very hot summer followed by a good soak of rain has fooled the orange trees into ‘false flowering’

Car Hire Advice

I would advise when hiring a car that you take photos of all areas of the car including wheels and mirrors. This should be done showing the mileometer reading and be sure to get a picture of the car standing in the pick up point. On returning the car do the same, preferably whilst the hire company rep is watching, again photograph the mileometer reading, the fuel gauge, all the body panel, bumpers, wheels and mirrors.
I have found it stops spurious claims against credit cards and also gives proof that there was no new damage when the car was returned.
The hire companies don’t like you doing it, but it seems to work.
As for the Delpaso item, I have used them and taken collect and return photos. I found them no better or worse than any of the others.
