Services Needed-Internet Calls

Does anyone have the phone number or postal address of Internet Calls in Luxemburg ? I have tried several numbers, to no avail!

We have been members of Internet Calls for some time but, since our PC crashed a while ago, nothing of their “help adverts” are geared up to “crashed PC”.

Twice this has happened and  we lost some credit

We just want to speak to a “human” or write to them to see what we could or should do to re-connect.?     Could you help please ?

regards,  Norman.

Recommendation –Reminder – Please Note

While it is nice for people to recommend a person or business it would help to give adequate information to other Digamites of where and how one could make contact. (…like Westons Kennels in the Saturday issue)

Our editor has always instructed Digamites to do this but still people leave out the information and it makes others frustrated including myself.




Recommendation Needed – Wi-Fi Jazztel

Does anyone have any experience of the service from Jazztel in Torre del Mar, please?

If you’re wanting to change the look and feel of your room, changing the rods and curtains really makes a big difference. My La Herradura villa came with these sheers and rods although I brought my own from the U.S.

As you know, rods can be cut easily. One large set is 2 meters with the remaining 2 sets being 150 and a smaller one being 95.

The sheers are quite interesting with a striped pattern which lets in lots of light. 60 EU or best offer for all.

Curtain panels measure 220 long by 144 wide but can be shortened or lengthened a bit. They are white/ivory so very light and airy.

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.

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 forrmat…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
