Hi Tiarnan, We are in Vinarsko, 10km south of Aytos and have the same problems with phone and internet. At the moment we are using Spnet for internet connection only, which we have found to be reasonably reliable but max speed only 512kb/sec which is just about fast enough for voice transmission and...

Try a Monumental mason. There is one beside the petrol station at the first roundabout as you enter Borgas from Nessebar, but presumably many others all over as there seems to be quite a lot of stone grave markers around.

I am not sure what the coverage is but Spectrum, they claim, are the second largest providers in BG. They have a dish based system, that is the signal is sent from one aerial to the next and then to your dish.

Battert, If you are saying that your balcony is a true cantilever from the house wall then you should get the capability of the structure confirmed by the designer. I have no idea what the official design load is in BG but it is probably a uniformly distributed load about 150Kg/sq.m. A point load wh...

It depends on the amount of ventilation. Probably it is quite safe but there is always the risk. Hydrogen is lighter than air so it could dissipate quite quickly as in a car engine. Friends of mine had a boat battery blow up due to them using the wrong charging regime and that gave them quite a scar...

The subject of batteries is quite a big one on it's own. The cheapest are lead/acid similar to the the car battery. Of these there are three types: 1.

In case this is not too late for you Lee your problem could be the starter motor brushes are nearly worn out.The brushes stick in the accumulated dust and do not contact the commutator.
