Recommendations & Requests


Recommendation, Malaga Car Clean: I have just bought an 11 year old 4×4 car that desperately needed the interior being thoroughly cleaned. Warren came to the house and carried out an absolutely first class job on the car, much better than I thought possible. The transformation was amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better result. So, if your car needs bringing back to new condition, then Warren will carry out a first class job. I have never before posted a recommendation but I was so pleased with the job I thought I should share and recommend.
Warren, an absolutely first class job. Tony Lindsay Jones, Vinuela. alindsayjonesAThotmailD0Tcom

Spain Covid Update: {Translation} Updated: 14May 2021, 21:06
-The Ministry of Health has notified 58 new deaths this Friday, the lowest figure since September 11 when 48 deaths from coronavirus were registered in one day, according to the Ministry’s reports. In addition, Health has added 6,347 new infections to the official count. The accumulated incidence falls four points and stands at 162 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. In total, 3,604,799 people have been infected and 79,339 have died since the beginning of the pandemic.
-As of Sunday, Germany will stop considering the Canary Islands and Ceuta as risk areas.
-Furthermore, Dutch tourists will not have to quarantine or present a negative PCR upon return from the Balearic and Canary Islands.

What vaccine will they give me?: This is how immunization against Covid will progress in Andalusia.
Source: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-vacuna-poner-y-cuando-avanza-vacunacion-contra-covid-andalucia-grupos-edad-y-citas-202105141407_noticia.html


Important advice issued for anyone who has mixed AstraZeneca and Pfizer Covid jabs: Mixing coronavirus vaccines increased the frequency of mild to moderate symptoms in those who received different jabs for the first and second dose, preliminary data suggests.
Reactions included symptoms like chills, fatigue, headaches and feeling feverish, and were short-lived, according to a peer-reviewed letter that has been printed in The Lancet.
“The results from this study suggest that mixed dose schedules could result in an increase in work absences the day after immunisation, and this is important to consider when planning immunisation of healthcare workers.
“Importantly, there are no safety concerns or signals, and this does not tell us if the immune response will be affected.” Full article:


Spain updates documents Britons living in Spain need to enter under current restrictions: In a Facebook post titled *Documentation for UK nationals living in Spain before 1 January 2021 to enter Spain during current restrictions*, the British Embassy in Madrid wrote on Thursday May 13th:
“The Spanish Government has informed the UK Government that it has updated the list of documentation that UK nationals who were legally residing in Spain before 1 January 2021, and as such are beneficiaries of the Withdrawal Agreement, can use to prove their residence status when entering Spain while entry restrictions remain in place.”
The document, signed and stamped by the Spanish Embassy in London, says that Britons who were legally living in Spain before the end of 2020 will be required to present any one of the following documents to prove your residence status.

Junta minister rejects the central government’s new self-employed contribution plans: The plans of the Social Security minister, José Luis Escrivá, do not sit well with the Junta de Andalucía that says “The planned reforms are untimely and come at a time when the self-employed are having a very bad time because of the pandemic.”
The regional government’s Minister of Employment, Rocío Blanco said, “This reform would badly hit the pockets of the self-employed Andalusians and the new government scheme acts as a disincentive for people to register as a self-employed person and would motivate them to stay in the underground economy.” “There must be super-reduced fees,” she said and guaranteed that the Andalusian Government will maintain, whatever happens, a flat rate of 60 euros.

Hard To Detect Fileless Malware In Active Campaign Infecting Computers: Threat actors are abusing Microsoft Build Engine (MSBuild) to filelessly deliver remote access trojans and password-stealing malware on targeted Windows systems.
The actively ongoing campaign is said to have emerged last month, researchers from cybersecurity firm Anomali said on Thursday, adding the malicious build files came embedded with encoded executables and shellcode that deploy backdoors, allowing the adversaries to take control of the victims’ machines and steal sensitive information.

DoctorLaptop Adds: This is precisely why people need to have their computers professionally serviced on a regular basis, as consumer level anti-malware tools cannot detect this type of malware! If you have valuable data, or need your computer for essential tasks, and if you are not getting a professional annual service, you are taking a large risk. Remember- Make regular data backups to an external memory device, or cloud storage, if you value your data! -DoctorLaptop
