To Digamextra- another job well done! I placed a gas space heater for sale on Digamextra last week. To my surprise the next morning before I was even out of bed I had 4 requests for the unit. It was sold before 9:00 AM. Pretty incredible service. Wish I had more things to sell! Keep it up! David 692 288 657 Sayalonga

Information: Hello Digamites, I wonder if any one out there knows someone who has relocated to Greece (Rhodes) from Spain. Any info would be good as finding a removal company that does not charge extortionate prices would be welcomed and the best way to relocate. Steve, Torrox Costa.
