Location, location, location

Please can people put locations on posts on Digamextra?

I know Jane has asked for this a million times, perhaps she shouldn’t post things if it’s missing, but then again she has better things to do I am sure than edit all posts.

Today there was a recommendation for Ink n Chips for printers, no mention of where, being near Supersol doesn’t help – is it Torrox? Torre del Mar? Nerja? Almuñécar? And yes, I could ring the number given and ask, but really, is it so difficult to include it in the first place?

ok rant over….. Wendy

(Thanks Wendy – you’re correct – Put simply … I really, really need :- Description of item, price, location, advertiser’s name & contact option(s)  Plus a pic in JPEG format only.

I do not want words all in Block Capitals.

Nor should people instruct respondents to send replies to Digamextra.

Simple & common sense really)

Torre del Mar Police Station Visits

Although we like to do as much as we can ourselves here.

I must admit that paying our gestoria a modest sum to sort out things at the police station has been well worth the money.

In the past she has sent a member of staff to get the all important ticket and we have turned up after 9am with them and then didn’t even have to wait as our number was just about to come up.

It seems a chaotic system but the professionals seems to be able to able to manage it better, so I leave it to them! BW



Paypal Scam


Further to recent posts. If an email from PayPal is not addressed to you personally it is a scam. Please forward it to spoof@paypal.com then delete without clicking on anything. PayPal will investigate.


It would be better if everyone, when receiving an email from a site, ignored any links and went directly to that site in the normal way. If you can’t find any info on the site pertaining to the email you received, forward the email to the sites spoof or phishing email address….. then delete it,

Cheers, Keith, Travelin’ wotsapionatgmaildotcom

Not quite true, GH. You can deal with Paypal problems even if you don’t have an account. It took me 3 goes though. I occasionally got emails concerning a Paypal account in my name with my email address but no details. Contacting Paypal by Skype (the cheapest option) I fiinaly found the account had been set up in Australia but had never actually been used. I was told it had now been deleted…. and I’ve had no further emails on that account,

Cheers, Keith. Travelin’ wotsapninatgmaildotcom

Thanks to PJ and Guardia

Lovely Saturday evening at El Pino , Torrox.

Returned home at 11 to find house burgled and ransacked.

Unsure what to do – returned to El Pino were PJ spoke to Guardia on our behalf. Returned home to Pago Santilla, Torrox and found 2 very helpful Guardia Officers who were very friendly and kept saying sorry  .

Going to Police Station on Sunday morning we found company in 3 near neighbours who had also been burgled.

We were both very upset and shocked by everything but it was nice to know there are still some nice helpful friendly people out there.

Thanks Mary and Paul



Services Available- Solution for Electricity supply problem  


Many times, when there is a storm (thunder/lightning), the supply will often trip out, it is always the main switch (RCD/RCB) “Interruptor diferencial in Spain” in the consumer unit that trips.  When you are away, you need a continuous service in fridge, alarm, swimming pool, that requires a continuous electricity supply.

In this case, it is possible to install a Self-reclosing RCCB to ensure service continuity. 

Call or email for no obligation quote and more information:

Services Needed- Phone & Internet for 6months p.a.

We reside in Spain for the 6 months of the winter and have up until now had our phone and internet provided by one company.

In the past this company allowed you to suspend the contract for the 6 months of the summer paying only the landline rental.

They have now cancelled this and require the full monthly payment for the period of our absence.

Does anyone know a provider who will permit this suspension for the summer or a company with a half sensible monthly charge.

Recommendation –Furniture Refurbishment

We have just used the services of Stan (The Furniture Man) to recover some of our sofa cushions that had suffered in the Spanish heat.
He made a wonderful job of them and our sofas now look as good as new.
I understand that Stan can also completely refurbish sofas – we saw an example of this work in his shop in Nerja – brilliant.
Stan can also manufacture sofas to your specification.
(Which we now intend to purchase from him).

Long Term Rental Needed –Road bicycle

A friend is visiting us in Canillas de Albaida for a weekend at the end of the month and wants to rent a road bike so we can ride together.

I know there’s XNerja in Nerja but as it’s a fleeting visit he’d prefer to pick one up closer to home or along the route from the airport.

Can anyone recommend somewhere in say Velez Malaga or Torre del Mar or anywhere en route?

Alternatively, don’t suppose anyone has a medium sized road bike they’d loan him for a small fee
