Recommendations

Lovely vegan restaurant in Torre Del Mar: Himalaya Salon Vegan. We went on plant based diet recently and feel blessed there’s such a high quality vegan restaurant in the area. Can definitely also recommend for non-vegan eaters.
As everything is homemade, organic and vegan, you get what you pay for, we shared nachos, had a burger each which came with nice salad and some oven baked fries, chocolate cake and drinks, 53€ (for 2 persons).
Ambience is really accomplished and waiter lovely.
Gunila/Benajarafe ; gunilavet@gmail.com

 

Agaves under attack – reply: The attack of the Agaves sounds a bit like the beetle (picudo rojo) that attacks certain palms and which also lays white grubs which eat the core and produce a vile stench, eventually killing the tree. There is a series of products from Fertinyect claiming to treat all sorts of similar problems (https://www.fertinyect.com/tratamientos/), such as the processionary caterpillar (which we are currently trying, so no idea yet if it works).
Good luck. Nick/Jete, Granada 609 706 210

Bull Farm: Dear digamigos! My friend, the Dutch sculptor Peter Engelen, would like to study – observe- Spanish Bulls at a bullfarm. Does anyone have any contacts of bull farms? I include a picture of a bronze he made portraying a Dutch bull.
If so please contact me: Julia dot Horzinek at gmail dot com or via WhatsApp +34694448600 Julia/Nerja PIC

Recommendations

Agaves under attack: I have agaves on my land, where I’ve lived for some years, and this year some have been infested in the base by, I think, a smallish, black beetle which lays eggs producing white maggots. Presumably these feed on the plant, eventually killing it, apparently by rotting the base, and leaving a brown residue and a strong smell similar to fermentation.
Losing the agaves doesn’t much bother me, though clearing up the resulting mess isn’t much fun. Anybody else had this happen or able to provide more information about the critters causing this ecological disaster? Steve/Algarrobo

News & Articles

Just Where Did Facebook Come From and Why Is It So Evil? by Naythan
Was Mark Zuckerberg capable of writing the Facebook code unassisted? No, he stole it. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, Olympic rowers, identical twins and fellow Harvard students of Zuckerberg claimed that they, not Zuckerberg, had the original idea and basic code for Facebook. They were awarded a $200 Million settlement against Zuckerberg in 2008, back when that was a big sum for a 4yr old startup. https://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/12/technology/12facebook.html
The Winklevoss twins wrote a primitive social media app for use on their campus. Somehow Zuckerberg got his hands on it, and despite having only a basic coding ability, turned it into Facebook by having it inserted in a much larger framework. Why was he even allowed to proceed with it’s development after 2008? And where did this sophisticated framework that would become Facebook (once the twin’s written part of the code was inserted into it) come from if Zuck struggles with simple coding?
This is where fact and conspiracy collide. This comprehensive article explains much, with solid, documented facts in many cases, but quite a bit of extrapolation into the “possibilities”, attempting to “connect the dots”, is included and certainly muddies the waters. Some may even say it’s bordering on sci-fi and reading like a fictionalized-history or detective story. If the roots of social media interest you, both the facts and legends, you’ll find this a fascinating read. Then impress your kids at dinner tonight with some fun facts to drop in the conversation, if you can get them to put down their iPhones that is.
Fair Warning: If you are annoyed rather than entertained by conspiracy theories skip it.

UPDATEDDoctorLaptop’s Computer Service Offers: EXTENDED UNTIL Jan 1st 2020. Only 6 weeks until Windows 7 becomes officially obsolete! Windows 10 v1803 has been obsolete for nearly a month, don’t fall behind!
-Upgrade your Windows 7 computer to Windows 10 AND Set It Up Properly, €70. Ask anyone you know who has set up a brand new computer recently about that process. You get asked a lot of questions in jargon, and they trick you into signing up for services and 30 day app-trials you don’t want, think Norton/McAfee/Dropbox/Office365/etc. Windows now tries to insist you open and use a Microsoft account to log into your computer, it automatically logs you into all kinds of services that run in the background by default, all 32 of them! If you don’t have a Microsoft linked email like Outlook/Hotmail you will be asked to set up a new email with Outlook before proceeding. There is another way to do a setup, without being bound at the hip to Microsoft, but they obscure that button on the opening setup screen, not clearly named and easy to miss unless someone shows you. There are many other settings that can be optimized from the Window’s default settings which are more for Microsoft’s benefit than yours! When doing the upgrade your data is saved, all your 3rd party software is removed by Windows in the process, all saved passwords will need to be re-entered. Some early Win 7 computers cannot be upgraded, or can only be upgraded to Windows 10 32-bit (not 64-bit). If it has a Pentium processor or was built before 2012 this may be the case.
-Update your Windows 10 v1803 computer to the current v1903. Yes, v1803 is now obsolete, having reached it’s end of support on November 12th. That means it will not receive important security patches any longer. It’s recommended NOT to do banking/shopping on an unprotected computer. If you fail to do this soon you may be unable to update to v19H2 (aka v1909) directly thru the Windows Updater,  it will then require you download a special updater tool from MS. Or I can do it overnight, €35. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-1803-users-warned-to-update-before-end-of-support/
-All work by appointment. Make appts by phone, so we can discuss available times and what you need to bring.
-When requesting email assistance always include make/model/System version info.
-Free shopping research! Avoid lemons! Send me your requirements and where you will be shopping (local stores, UK stores or online shop), I’ll check online for the best deals.

MOT Waiting time: Re your item on MOT times I thought it worth recording that today 4th December I had a prebooked appointment at ITV centre Algarrobo. Appointment was made, by their computer, for 07.02
Was seen at desk at 07.10. Was checked in at 07.15. Was completed at 07.30
All without any hassle whatever.
The most efficient and impressive of any official service I have ever encountered in Spain. Gordon/Torrox/gordon.rae1 AT hotmail DoT com
(As of 4pm Wednesday TRE Radio is still reporting that at ITV stations they checked there are up to 8hr delays. This is also being widely reported in local media, none of the news sources mentioned the terms “appointment” or “prebooked”. I don’t drive so I don’t know if drop-ins are even allowed, or if all inspections are by appointment, or how a prebooked appointment differs from a regular appointment. To quote Chuck Berry’s 1956 hit, “too much monkey business for me to be involved in.” -Ed.)

Avast and AVG Browser Extensions Spying On Chrome and Firefox Users: If your Firefox or Chrome browser has any of the below-listed four extensions offered by Avast and its subsidiary AVG installed, you should disable or remove them as soon as possible.
Avast Online Security
AVG Online Security
Avast SafePrice
AVG SafePrice
Why? Because these four widely installed browser extensions have been caught collecting a lot more data on its millions of users than they are intended to, including your detailed browsing history (every website visited, every search you make, every video/stream/pic watched or listened to, everything you click on).
Most of you might not even remember downloading and installing these extensions on your web browser, and that’s likely because when users install Avast or AVG antivirus on their PCs, the software automatically installs their respective add-ons on the users’ browsers.
“Tracking tab and window identifiers as well as your actions allows Avast to create a nearly precise reconstruction of your browsing behavior: how many tabs do you have open, what websites do you visit and when, how much time do you spend reading/watching the contents, what do you click there and when do you switch to another tab. All that is connected to a number of attributes allowing Avast to recognize you reliably…” Palant said. So even if you are using a VPN, you can be identified! Scary. Even your antivirus is spying on you.

Nightmare for drivers on Costa del Sol as waiting lists for Spanish MOT get longer: Long queues are forming at dawn as drivers wait up to eight hours to pass the ITV. The situation arose in October when the Junta de Andalucía didn’t authorise hiring for temporary personnel. Around 400 jobs weren’t renewed all over Andalucía, leaving the work force of 1,300 people under serious strain.
The situation is causing long lines of vehicles to form in the early hours of the morning. Some people have to wait up to 8 hours, tuning an everyday activity into a lengthy nightmare. The initial cause is a Law that is readjusting the public sector in Andalucía, causing hiring to be frozen. The setback has resulted in a grave staff deficit and personnel has only seen a 50 per cent replacement rate in recent years, which decreases the quality of public services.
The opening of new ITV establishments such as El Viso in Málaga and an extension of opening hours, are all measures that are thwarted as staff isn’t provided to then run the service.
However, protests by workers have proved effective and hiring is starting up again, although the protests have caused waiting lists to now be around two months.

News & Articles

Local councils agree to control parakeet plague by shooting: The provincial government will carry out a public awareness campaign to explain why such drastic measures are necessary. The main local councils affected by the plague of monk parakeets agreed on Friday that the most appropriate, albeit unpopular, way of controlling the population is by shooting them with air rifles. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/201912/02/local-councils-agree-control-20191202124516.html

 

Ruling clears way for more Sunday Shop Openings in Malaga City: A court has overturned a regional government restriction on larger shops and shopping centres in Malaga city opening on Sunday and public holidays. Malaga is officially classified as an area with a high concentration of tourism, meaning shops can open.
But the Junta banned stores over 300 metres and parts of national chains opening on Sundays and public holidays in areas outside the centre of the city.
Larger shops have been complaining, and now the court agrees, saying that the Junta cannot impose those restrictions and that all stores should be free to set their own timetables.

Local Newspapers Battle for Internet Traffic Share: While DigameXtra enjoys an exclusive niche of publishing daily and is growing steadily in readership and website visits, we don’t get near the web traffic of the big players in the media marketplace. It appears the competition for top local newspaper is heating up. EuroWeekly posted this article 29Nov19 that appears  designed to redirect people searching for the Olive Press News to the EuroWeekly site. The article is titled “The Olive Press Latest News From http://www.euroweeklynews.com”. The content of the article discusses actual olive pressing machines, while also being sure to include keywords “olive press news” several times. I thought the Spanish April Fools Day was Dec. 28?!? This is a common tactic but is rarely so “in your face”, most webmasters just bury the individual keywords scattered among unrelated text, not using whole phrases that clearly ID a target.

News & Articles

Casting Call for wartime drama starring Colin Firth set to film on Costa next March: A Malaga casting company is searching for extras. ModExpoR is looking above all for men over 20 with a classic look and short hair, and clean shaven, who would be able to play German or Allied soldiers. Those interested in taking part can initially apply online at the casting company’s website. The dates set for filming in the Malaga area are 4-8 March. Not all locations have been revealed, but it is known that Malaga city hall will be used for at least one scene.
John Madden, the director of Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love, is to film in Malaga and surrounding area in March in his latest project, and Colin Firth is set to take one of the lead roles.
Exact details of the filming aren’t known, but the title of the World War II drama is Operation Mincement. The script centres on the true story of a plot to fool Nazis into believing that the Allied invasion of southern Europe in 1943 wouldn’t come via Sicily but from Greece instead.

Travel Advisory: Spanish foreign ministry advises against travel to southwestern Algeria at a time when many people fly there to visit Sahrawi refugees. On Wednesday they issued an alert advising against travel to Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, in southwestern Algeria, due to the risk of a terrorist attack.
Many Spaniards regularly travel to these camps as part of a volunteer program called Vacaciones en Paz (Vacation in Peace), which each summer welcomes around 4,000 Sahrawi children aged eight through 12 into Spanish homes during the months of July and August. Many of these Spanish families later go visit their young guests in Tindouf, either during the Christmas holidays or in early December, when there are two back-to-back public holidays. At these times, the Spanish population in Tindouf increases tenfold. Full article: https://elpais.com/elpais/2019/11/28/inenglish/1574929809_487470.html

News & Articles

Trojan virus planted in Spanish banking apps: The Android banking apps affected are those from Caixabank, Bankinter, Bankia, BBVA, EVO Banco, Kutxabank and Santander.
Authorities have issued warnings about a malware that has been planted in the online banking apps of seven Spanish banks and which allows thieves to access your login details and clear out your account.
The ‘Ginp’ malware only affects mobile apps on the Android version.
How do I know if I am infected?
When the bank app is launched, the effect of the appearance of the malicious screen is similar to when it is passed from one application to another on Android mobiles. “If you then look in the list of apps that you have open you see an unnamed one like the most recent one, open after the one in the bank,” an expert explains. This type of attack is called overlay. It consists of getting on top of the banking app through an Android permit. Google has made it increasingly difficult to achieve, but it still happens.
What do I do?
Take the App off your phone and contact your bank soonest to check on whether you´d need to cancel your bank cards.
