    Websites used to be easy to set up before the days of ‘Apple this or that’ and ‘Pads’, etc…. I think people should only be allowed to be on the site with big old desktop PC with valves and whatnot…. all these ere new fangled ‘Apple’ thingies which can’t be eaten or given to teacher and these ‘pads’ which can’t be …. well, you know :whistle:   … should be banned! Then life would be so much simpler again and all the problems of Greece would be solved overnight and life would be lovely and rosy once again….. but more importantly, we’d have our forum back to talking about exciting stuff again, rather than all these ‘ipad this’ or ‘apple that’, or ‘handheld isn’t holding my hand’, etc… reb_popo   :negative:

    Like KP I miss the good old days. Rickets and rationing. Going out on a Friday night with 3d in your pocket, getting blind drunk and then having enough change for a new suit and a pork pie with gravy, etc, etc, etc.

    Oh, and slums as well. Never did me any harm. And the blitz. And pink on the map.

    And who needs the interweb when you had ITMA on the wireless? Kids today, they don’t know what they’re missing.

    Etc, etc till I fall out of my bath chair and nurse comes to change me.

    Hello all – I have just joined this site, but had to be helped, as it was very complicated for a person of my advanced age to push buttons in the correct order. I have however managed to change a valve on the machine & also updated the punch cards, so I should be ok…Looking forward to new experiences with you as you seem such fun.

    Ahhh, a modicum of sanity rears it’s long forgotten head and prevails at last!

    Well a big ‘Hallelujah’ to that! ….. can I hear a few ‘Amen’ dear bretheren?

    One must admit that SJS’s reminicing brought a tear to my eye and our new bretheren ‘Mavrolouknika’ baring his heart and blackened sausage(?) encouraged my heart that all will be well… It is well with my soul…. reb_bravo

    Excellent! Okay, I’ve just clicked and am pleased to have confirmation of it being a male as well! The FB reference to Blackpool did it! …… But it’s okay Clark Kent, your secret is safe…. BTW: It’s so good that this thread has been split off so that the useful and sensible stuff can continue here unabused by all that confusing techie stuff…. Thank you admin…. reb_bravo

    Had to make it easy, so the duffers would realise 😀. Sad though ‘cos I can’t get my old identity back…Oh well, a new start it is then.

    Identity theft? That can’t be right on GIH! However just think that KP  is the G of GOM and I doubt you will experience anything as bad on here. Just keep up to speed, have a good imagination and keep a Sunny disposition. You do seem to have a dry sense of humour but I’m sure a few more posters will soon cure that! :wacko:

    Come on old sausage, clearly it wasn’t easy enough, as although this old duffer realised Clark Kent’s identity, the old duffer Kolo is still struggling… :-)

    I don’t know what you’re on about kolo?

    I’m probably one of the biggest duffers here where all this ‘ere techie type stuff goes and I haven’t had any problems in transferring and still never have any sign in issues! B-)

    Well, having been using it for a while, I prefer the old site. A lot more muted and people seemed to post more. Of course, that was during the exciting days of Grexit, and now it has sorted quietened down a bit, for now.

    Ho hum. I am going to Athens in the first week of August to get my KEP ? Was going to open bank account but that’s not possible. Look at a couple of flats and chill out.

    When going to the Govt offices is War and Peace enough or should I also take another couple of books. :)

    Problem on laptop. I just tried GIH on Mr Kiwis old laptop running Vista. The page opens showing the little menu thingie on the right top, and then the white welcome page opens showing the different forums…but, nowhere to sign in. Just woke up so now I can read all the new posts which I now bookmarked.

    Just noticed where I put this post…don’t tell me off SJs, I have no idea where It should have gone.

    Do you mean your ΑΦΜ (tax number) KEP is the office equivalent to the British CAB, but they do a lot of other stuff as well.

    Anything to do with tax offices, War & Peace probably not enough – take the Bible and the complete works of Shakespeare and work on your Desert Island Discs list if you want to maintain your sanity. OR you might just get lucky and find someone really helpful and be in and out of the office in no time – it does happen, really  :yahoo:

    Parma Ham !… You’re having a laugh!  Just how does that compare with with fully aged, dry cured bacon ?  The seductive smell, the dipping of the bread into pure bacon fat to make the perfect bacon sarnie..The addition of brown sauce and then the temptation upon the lips, culminating in the sensual, nay orgasmic  burst of flavour upon the taste buds. How can that be upstaged? …. Just ask my cardiologist 😀

    Back on topic… Sundodger was I, in the previous incarnation.  As for being a Vegan… I cater for those from any planet…Live long and prosper ! 😀

    None of us lost our usernames, just had to tick “forgot my password” and we were back to stage one.  Avatar was a different story so a bit of grovelling to sjs did the trick.

    Forgot password didn’t work!  The link to retrieve it is sent to email address…I had changed mine after a virus some time ago, but obviously had not updated on this site, so mail to retrieve would seem to have gone to now defunct address!

    Can you send me – via the form here – a new email address for your old account (along with all the details for it you remember) and I can re-activate it. The email address cannot be the same as any other you use for this site (must be unique).

    By the way, the mavroloukanika account now has your current email address but without the full stop.

    Did you know that full stops in gmail accounts are completely arbitrary and, for example, all these will reach the recipient.

    greeceishome@gmail.com
    gr.ee.c.e.isho.me@gmail.com
    g.r.e.e.c.e.i.s.h.o.m.e@gmail.com

    This means that with one gmail account you can have loads of different addresses which all arrive at the same place.
