Recommendation – Gardening Work

I would like to endorse this post which appeared on 24th September:

“I’d like to highly recommend a good Spanish friend who can carry out all aspects of gardening and campo work. From clearing, strimming, spraying, tree felling & pruning and fruit harvesting.  He has all professional equipment, including strimmers and chainsaws etc, and is an incredibly hard worker at excellent rates.  To contact him direct (Spanish speaking only), call Samuel on 628 441 205 or call/whatsapp Phil (english) on 657 149 712 or emailphillymc @ fastmail.fm

Samuel and his companion Jaime have just spent a day working very hard to cut, prune and clear our very large and overgrown garden.  They were charming, willing and very hardworking.  A pleasure to do business with.  Highly recommended.

DoctorLaptop Alert! Windows Live Mail 2012 Now Obsolete!

Using Windows Live Mail 2012 with Outlook.com? No more. Time to update your email application!

From MS Office Support: To provide you an email experience with enhanced performance, security and reliability, the new Outlook.com has been built upon our latest Office 365 infrastructure. Because the Windows Live Mail 2012 email application doesn’t support the protocols used by this new infrastructure, you will no longer be able to send or receive Outlook.com email from Windows Live Mail 2012. If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to Outlook.com, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app on Windows 8.1/10. THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7! For Win 7 users, Microsoft suggests you upgrade to Win 10 as a solution, a non-solution for many Win 7 users who can not upgrade due to hardware limitations.

Q. What if I am using Windows 7 and do not wish to, or are unable to, upgrade to use the Mail app?

A. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account directly by signing in via a web browser or you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription for Office 365 Personal and use Outlook 2016 to connect to your account. This Office 365 subscription includes the Outlook 2016 email application as well as other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.

Read full details here: https://blogs.office.com/2016/05/05/using-windows-live-mail-2012-with-outlook-com-time-to-update-your-email-application/

Another article explains alternatives available for accessing your @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com or @msn.com account once the Windows Live Mail 2012 email application stops connecting to these email accounts.

tc-me-smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item if there is one, all electronics/appliances have a model number.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this format…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
