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/

Telling friends about DigameXtra: Please do not hand out the submission email to persons who are not already Digamextra subscribers!! ONLY GIVE NEW READERS THE WEBSITE ADDRESS www.digameXtra.com!! Be sure to tell them they must subscribe and read the Submissions Rules before sending in submissions!

Problem With Sunday Issue: Dear readers, I must apologize for publishing an incomplete Sunday issue. I was typing too fast and accidentally hit the Publish button when I should have hit the Preview button, thus publishing an incomplete draft rather than the finished issue. All submissions left out of the Sunday issue have been included in today’s issue. -Editor.

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. With all the new Followers joining DigameXtra (5 on Halloween alone, Welcome!), I am far too busy helping them get started to keep track of partial submissions and patch them together. Prompt personal assistance from a real human is one of the prime features that sets DigameXtra apart from Farcebook. -Editor

Overdraft fee- Supreme Court Has Ruled That Banks In Spain Are No Longer Allowed To Charge An Overdraft Fee: Banks in Spain are now no longer allowed to charge an overdraft fee, in addition to non-payment interest, following a recent verdict by the Supreme Court brought about by a customer of a Basque Country-based high-street entity.

Voter registration: Calling all UK citizens eligible to vote in the UK General Election! Did you know that if you have been living abroad for less than 15 years you can still vote in the UK General Election on the 12th December.
But to do this you have to register to vote. You can get a proxy vote – go to the voter registration site. Proxy votes are better than postal votes because you can’t count on the postal service to get your vote counted in time!  https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Prema Bar: I went to the Prema Bar cafe in Torre del Mar (Waterfront area Copo) for lunch. What a nice surprise! I ate the delicious lasagna, completely homemade, cook with fresh, healthy ingredients, fresh pasta rolled by hand. Very very good! Even the bruschetta was tasty and appetizing, prepared with tomatoes, garlic and basil from their vegetable garden, organic bread produced with sourdough. And finally a delicious chocolate cake, always homemade! I digested everything very well! Also in the room, there is a corner used as a shop, where you can buy organic products at 0Km and various seasonal vegetables from the garden of Prema. Peaceful environment and very friendly owners. I highly recommend specialties to lasagna lovers!
I saw that they have a facebook page @premacafeteriaheladeria

-New Chrome 0-day Bug, Under Active Attacks – Update Your Browser Now! Attention readers, if you are using Chrome on your Windows, Mac, and Linux computers, you need to update your web browsing software immediately to the latest version Google released Friday.
With the release of Chrome 78.0.3904.87, Google is warning billions of users to install an urgent software update immediately to patch two high severity vulnerabilities, one of which attackers are actively exploiting in the wild to hijack computers. https://thehackernews.com/2019/11/chrome-zero-day-update.html

-Windows 10 Has Manditory Updates! The official end date for support for Windows 10 v1803 (the March 2018 Update) is November 12, 2019. Microsoft is urging people to make the jump to v1903; v1909 is due out any day now (a new designation will start being used, it will be called v19H2 for Year 2019 Second Half). Anyone still on v1803 will soon see this message displayed on the Windows Update Settings window:
“You’re currently running a version of Windows that’s nearing the end of support. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 now to get the latest features and security improvements.”
Note: If a computer is from mid 2012 or earlier and you’ve installed Windows 10 and this update breaks something, all is not lost. You have 10 days to go to Settings/Recovery and roll back to the previous version that was working.
