John Illsley of Dire Straits: Wednesday 9th October at Paris 15, Calle la Orotava, Malága. As one of the founding band members, with guitarist brothers Mark and David Knopfler, and drummer Pick Withers, Illsley played a role in the development of Dire Straits’ sound. By the time the group disbanded in 1995 changes in personnel meant that Illsley and lead singer Mark Knopfler were the only two original band members remaining. Illsley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Dire Straits in 2018.
Illsley has produced two albums of his own, with Mark Knopfler as a guest musician, and has helped with Mark’s personal projects and charities.
John will be appearing with his own band with guitarist Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney John Mayer), he will be playing Dire Straits classics as well as songs from his latest solo album, ‘Long shadows’. Info&Tix

DoctorLaptop’s September Special: No one Likes Slow Computers! My famous Clean & TuneUp Special is back, for Windows & Mac. Until Oct. 01, 2019 you can now get 20% off, only €40! If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance, an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you?
I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, update Windows+all drivers+programs, clean out old logs/history/etc., clean & optimize registry, advanced defrag and finally optimize your settings for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
Contact: doctorlaptop @ protonmail.com or call 675 993 069 (no calls b4 11am)
Computer repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO & business computer maintenance service. Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android. (Updated 11SEP19 to correct the date the special ends.)

Lost Pigeons?: Hello DigameXtraland, I wonder if there are any pigeon fanciers out there who could help me? Approximately 4 weeks ago a pigeon landed in my garden and started to eat the bread I put out for the birds here. It has a ring on each leg and stayed for about a week before flying off one night and came back the next day with another pigeon that is not ringed. I went to the U K for a week and when I returned they were still here. They are very tame and follow me around all the time but unfortunately they leave quite a bit of mess behind!
One of the rings has the number 326409 on it and underneath Andalusia. The other ring has the number 41 with what looks like ‘pinonette’ and the number 699451799 on it. I thought this might be a mobile number and tried ringing it but no luck.
I looked on the web and rang a pigeon club in Seville and the chap seemed to check the number and said he would get back to me but he has not, I assume my Spanish wasn’t quite up o the standard needed for pigeon racing!
If anyone could help me re-home these two birds I would be eternally grateful!
I am in Puente Don Manuel and my mobile number is – 696030426 (WhatsApp or Viber)
Thank you, Alan
