I have got some some kind of mildew attack on my vines - is there anything I can do now to cure it or are my grapes lost now for this year? I've heard about this bordeaux mix etc - where do people buy it from? And what/when is the best time to use it? I would prefer something a bit more organic thou...

An update from me - today I handed over all the required documents at the KAT in VT and applied for my driving licence! A very proud moment I can tell you! My theory paper was remarked in Sofia and the result was changed to "pass", so I took my practical test last week and passed with no faults. I o...

Brian - you get 100 a day in your inbox? I sometimes get more than 100 a day, but my email software effectively filters them out. I get max 2 or 3 a week that slip by the filters. I use Yahoo and they do a pretty good job (but a worse job at putting real emails in the spam folder!) and I also use Th...

truckyboy - I agree with you. But the answer to the problem of SPAM is not to prevent businesses from contacting each other. It's mad. You can't actually sign up on the No-Spam list as an individual, (despite the KZP being an agency for consumer rights - the consumer has no rights). You can only sig...

Pascalcho, the list is not publicly available for obvious reasons. You have to check an email address you are already in possession of, and it will tell you that it's on the list. I input the email address we spammed, and got their record up. You can also download a free program which lets you check...

I would have thought that the total impracticality of the website, the impossibility of getting the list, and the fact that the English version of the website is empty, should have been something for your lawyer to jump on. I challenge anyone to get a working copy of the list. We can't afford to be...

Our lawyer didn't represent us - there wasn't a trial. There was a hearing where we were invited to present our side of the story, to one guy at the KZP, in his office. We sent a representative. I consulted the lawyer after we received the letter detailing the fine (about 6 weeks after the hearing)....

I really think you had a very bad lawyer. Or none at all. Why so? Yes we do have a lawyer and we did break the law. We can appeal, but we would probably lose, because ignorance of the law is not a defence. And then we would pay costs for appealing. If you know something that I don't please do say, ...

Brian - we will not be emailing anyone ever again, unless they emailed us first! Thanks for the link. We got 1000BGN for one email and the max is 1500? Sounds like they are low on culprits and need some money in the kitty. :( Also of note: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_(electronic)#Political_iss...
