Re: Tourist killed in Carvoeiro

My daughter and children use it a lot as it is less crowded and has great rock pools at low tide. What a shame - surely there must have need witnesses if it was a tour boat.

Re: Tree clearing - building or agriculture ?

Oh shame - I thought it might be for low cost social housing, as an overspill from the council estate where the lights used to be! (only kidding Roy!)

Re: Cleaning a Bar-B-Que

Just set a very large BBQ with lots of wood on it and burn it out. You will find most stuff is incinerated and you just need a wire brush to clean it off.

Re: Rua Do Cerro - arghh

Most a/c units have a voltage sensor in the panel which can be set for a working range typically 200-260. You may find yours has been set too high and when you get a voltage spike it may be tripping. If you dont mind taking the cover off and checking the panel boards you might find it.

Re: WIFI in villa

I've been using a vodafone dongle for 6 yrs basically without probs but thought the NOWO system sounded too good to miss - if only! Vodafone have been promising to put fibre in every year - still waiting!

Re: WIFI in villa

I went to see NOWO in portimao and signed up for the Internet only 100mps + free 30 channels. They said they would come 2 days later. To say it was a disaster is an understatement - it finally took 5 visits to Portimao to get them to turn up - the main reason being they wont call a uk mobile number ...
