Recommendation – Computer Assistance

As I am not really technical when it comes to computer problems I recently came across Jan Tytgat’s advertisement in Digame.

Jan came to my home and explained in layman’s language how to deal with the various questions I had, he also cleaned up my computer which had almost slowed to a halt.

I found him very knowledgeable and polite and speaks fluent English.

He lives in the Torrox area and is extremely reasonable.

He can be contacted via email on jantytgat @ live.co.uk

Thank you Jan and also thank you Jane for your wonderful newsletter.




Recommendation – Healing

I’d like to recommend Jenn, a kind young lady

It’s an interesting kind of massage combining reiki with thai-massage.

Thank you Jenn.

Yahoo Email Alert – 500M Password/Username Combos Stolen

Yahoo said on Thursday that information for at least 500 million user accounts was stolen from its network in 2014. “This is the biggest data breach ever,” said well-known cryptologist Bruce Schneier. Data stolen included names, email addresses, phone numbers, D.O.B., and passwords. http://fortune.com/2016/09/22/yahoo-hack/

These passwords are used to gain access to your account, change your password and security question, thus locking you out of the now stolen account. Other recent major data hacks have occurred at Adobe, Dropbox, LinkedIn and more. Check to see if your email login data was stolen (“pwned”in geekspeak) in a data breach (other than the new Yahoo hack) here: https://haveibeenpwned.com/

Now the bad news…Yahoo has virtually eliminated support for users of their free email. Locked out of your Yahoo email? There is no more phone support and no email contact info on their help pages, or their Facebook or Twitter, despite their help page directing you to these sites. The Yahoo help site specifically states any telephone help-line number for Yahoo is a scam. Supposedly you can Tweet to Yahoo requesting help, but mine went unanswered. They also suggest you visit their Yahoo self help forums. Guess what? You must log into your Yahoo account to use their forum! These useless suggestions are all Yahoo has to offer:


Did you read that last line in this screenshot? Unbelievable! Do that and you lose all contacts and saved emails! If you regularly change your password and signed up for the 2 stage login Yahoo pushes on you every login, using your mobile number, then you are unlikely to be at risk. If you have not recently changed your password, and setup the extra security steps, now is the time! Or move to a free email that takes your privacy seriously. I suggest www.hushmail.com.

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

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail.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 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  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  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
