How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

DigameXtra Office Summer Hours: The office is closed from Friday at 9pm until 9pm Sunday. I don’t do anything DigameXtra related during this time slot. DoctorLaptop continues to work Monday thru Saturday as usual.

Internet Services like Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp have been been experiencing problems over the last 48hrs. If you are having problems viewing these sites, like pages and photos failing to display, you are not alone. This is the third major outage in recent months as the media giants experience problems processing all the data they steal from their users. If they were not so greedily consuming all their users personal data this would be easily avoided. All the more reason to have your own website rather than relying on these services.

I’d like to recommend Archgrove Services of Archez to anyone looking for a removals service from Spain to UK. We had a part load consisting of bulky and heavy items of furniture and a collection of ceramic pots. Steve and Gail assured us that they could collect the items from us in Canillas, store them and then deliver them to us in east Kent. They did this professionally, courteously and at a good price; keeping us informed at all times up to the point when Steve phoned to say that he was 20 minutes from our house. Steve unloaded and placed the items exactly where we needed them
A really good service – many thanks.
