Their ISP (BT) is blocking them, nothing I can do about that, they have a message which says :-

Apple Mac/iPad/iPhone/Safari Issues


iPad problems
I sent the following to 1958Ian on Thursday to the original posting but noted that Paul at Competa reported the same:
Apple reported it as an issue on Tuesday and have corrected the software but to get your machines to work again you need to clear the web history.
Just go to:
Click on ‘Clear History and Website Data’


That should sort it although if you’ve saved any automatic log in details for websites it will be lost.     Angela


Also in response to Paul in Competa regarding the iPad/iPhone/Safari Issue, yes this is an update issue which Apple are working on. In the meantime there are a couple of workarounds

On the iPhone/iPad go to Settings and then choose Safari. There you find Safari Suggestions. Just toggle the slider. The Safari Suggestions option on the Mac is under the Safari Preferences under the Search Tab. Just uncheck Include Safari Suggestions. Done

An alternative workaround is to enter private browsing mode. This can be done when opening a new tab in Safari. Browsing in private mode will turn the background of the browser black.

The other option is to download a separate browser application altogether, such as Google’s Chrome. I’m sure Apple won’t be too long with the fix.

If you have any problems email me ryanbowen  @  hotmail.com or call me 677 622 708

Kind regards



Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 smallDoctorLaptop News Clarification Regarding Apple/Macs

Got an email from a Mac user who disputed my statement, “Apple/Macs already are moving in this direction where paid system upgrades come out on a regular basis and old programs quit working if you fall too far behind.” The simple explanation is this. You don’t receive a charge when you update because you already paid for them up-front when you bought your machine. That’s one of the main reasons you pay 2 to 3 times as much for an Apple/Mac over a Windows machine with the equivalent hardware. It’s a marketing concept called “bundling”. As for paid app updates, this is essentially what happens when your favorite app disappears from the Apple Store so there is no update, it just quits working eventually forcing you to buy a new app to do the same function. For a detailed explanation please email me directly to avoid boring the majority of DigamExtra readers. doctorlaptop “@”gmx.com



Services Available New Mind Body Class Offered
I am offering new mind body class that will help you feel more centered, better balanced, healthier, happier and more energized.   This class is open to all, as long as you can make it up and down the ramp to the sandy beach you can join in.
For many years my philosophy has been to bring wellness and fitness classes outdoors.  What better place to feel the peace and serenity in the world then to be outside breathing fresh air surrounded by the sounds of nature.
This class that will be held at the sandy beach area of La Chica Playa, just west of the lighthouse.
Bring whatever you need to feel safe and comfortable while in class.  You can wear regular clothes, or a wetsuit to stay warm, wear water shoes, or go barefoot, Wear a hat, and sunglasses.
The idea is to create a comfortable space, so that you can relax and breath freely without the restrictions of tight clothes, or being too cold or too warm.
Follow a series of slow, methodical breathing exercises, posture improvement exercises, balance practice, gentle tummy tightening movements, meditation, and simple movements through the water or on the sand.
My phone number is 697385953.  My email is 1bdywellness@gmail.com
I ’ve worked in fitness and wellness for many years and am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, An AEA Water Exercise Trainer, a yoga instructor, and practice meditation, tai chi, and hold a certification in balance training.
As you know, this section of beach is very small.  I would like to limit the class size to 10. Please write or call to reserve your spot.   I will begin offering this class on Tuesday and Thursday at 1400.
This class is being offered on a donation only basis.  I am testing the interest for this type of class in this area before I make any larger commitments.

Services Needed  TV Options – Help Please
I have contacted a few of the companies supplying TV via the Internet, and have almost decided on what we need.  I know it’s getting boring, but I’d welcome a few recommendations – I want the BBC/ITV channels, plus – if poss – lifetime/living and a few Sky channels and ideally the option of watching anything we may miss in the previous week or so.  Think it’s Catch Up?
I realise it’s necessary to pay installation, and probably a monthly subscription.
Those I’ve talked to have one and not the other, but I know they exist!
Thanks in advance!    Answers to DigameXtra Please




Services Needed – Storage

I am looking for around 12-15 cubic  metres of dry, secure storage space for a few months for some household effects (mainly stackable crates). Has anyone got a spare outbuilding or garage that I can rent and pay them a fair price for? Anywhere along the coast or the vicinity of Sayalonga/Algarrobo would be ideal but anywhere considered.
Many thanks for any replies and suggestions.

What’s on Nerja Players

Richard Brinsley Butler Sheridan was an Irish playwright and poet and long-term owner of the London Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. He is known for his plays such as The Rivals, The School for Scandal, The Duenna and A Trip to Scarborough. The School for Scandal was first performed in London at Drury Lane Theatre on 8 May 1777 and  is considered one of the greatest comedies of manners in English.  It  deals with upper class rumour-mongering and manufacturing, infidelity and attempted seduction, family loyalties and disloyalties, romance and marital strife, age differences among couples, dissolute youth and pretended virtues and much more. The comedy is timeless and as laugh-producing today as it was in the 18th Century — perhaps even more so.
It has been adapted for a dramatized reading by our artistic director, Marty Margulies, who also plays Sir Peter, and it will be presented on Tuesday, 2nd February at the Nerja Bridge Club (the blue doors set back next to the Café Royale at the top of Avda Castilla Perez) at 6.30 for 7.  This performance is open to the general public.

We would also like to remind everybody that we hope to perform Wind in the Willows at the Nerja Cultural Centre later in the year and are still seeking performers and people willing to work behind the scenes.

Our production on 16th February will be “Not Fur Long”, an adaptation from  a story by ​Roald Dahl ​ – but more of that later.  In the meantime, for further information about these performances or on joining the Players, please check the website – nerjaplayers.com – or have a no obligation chat with the Vice-president, Freda, on 952528868
