Re: Venezuala bloggers and vloggers

Tor is only useful if you have internet connectivity AND can connect to other Tor users to route your traffic back onto the "normal" internet. It is a form of encryption that can bypass content filters and hides the originating IP address from TPTB. Venezuela is not, like the UK, a "top level" inter...

Re: Go too books

Haynes plumbing manual is useful. Sorting out burst pipes, leaky stop cocks and suchlike.

I used a similar one and have taught myself to competently sort out plumbing and heating woes. Fitted an extra radiator at the weekend, saving me a good few quid.

It must be frustrating for it to happen now when you're in sniffing distance of the pension. Hope things work out.

Re: Disneyland Paris kit list

Have a "lost child" plan so you all know what to do in the event of losing someone. A laminated card with your phone numbers on it (in the proper international format of +447710693555). Find somewhere easy to locate and unique (no point in picking McDonalds if there are two of them). Make it the RV ...

Re: Travel toothpaste

Well I must be quite wealthy as I throw empty toothpaste tubes away unmolested, often in quite a cavalier fashion too, if truth be told.
