    The stupidity of HES code

    Top Tv

    A good film with Tom Hanks is "News of the World". "Honest Thief" has also been recommended but not watched it yet. The Valhalla Murders (icelandic with subtitles) is also good.

    Sterling transfers and ATM withdrawals

    Is it just me or is anyone else having problems transferring GBP from a UK account to a GBP account in Turkey? Both HSBC and Transferwise will only deliver the money in TL. HSBC also seems to have stopped delivering Sterling from their ATMs - even using a UK HSBC card - and others will only...

    Internet alternatives Koycegiz

    We changed to koycegiznet 3 weeks ago and are finding it difficult to get a good connection. We've spent 4 days without being able to connect at all and the rest of the time, particularly evening, with a speed so slow (less than 1mbps at times) that it's not worth using! And it's impossible...
