Computer Repairs by DoctorLaptop, Torrox Costa: Get your computer a proper maintenance servicing now to prepare for the Summer heat. As temps approach 30C computer processors run very hot, and may even shut them selves off to avoid damage. A clean, well tuned computer will have far fewer heat related problems than a lint clogged one full of System rubbish. All work by appointment only. Please make appts by phone call, not email, so we may discuss available times, etc.

Web Search Tip by Naythan: Want to get away from Google search but don’t like Duckduckgo? Sick of inaccurate search results and results that are 10yrs old?
Here are two excellent AD FREE alternatives with more accurate results, no tracking and no “sponsored” search results:
SearX– Searx is a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines. No user data saved, very accurate results. Very clean, uncluttered site. My current fav! https://searx.me/
Qwant- EU based, no cookies, no history saved. Has a “social media” search function for searching Facebook pages and posts. More modern look than SearX, with news feeds and social media links. https://www.qwant.com/


Tempo Happy tariff: Further to the post about Endesa’s Happy Tempo tariff, it is possible to register on the website https://www.endesaclientes.com/homes/home.html which is in English and change your tariff directly through that. I was having difficulties and was given a free phone number to contact of 800 760 909. When I have rung them in the past there has usually been an English speaking assistant to help.
