Just a heads up for anyone who wants a bit of christmas cheer.
For those who are not computer minded ... you can do something called renting a VPN.

Basically what this does is allow you to watch christmas shows from other countries on your computer (or even to your TV via the use of a cable) which usually would block you from seeing it.

There are many different providers out there, and I am sure others can post links or advise for anyone needing help.

This company, VPN UK offers a great range of IP addresses including Swedish IP's which is quite rare (for swedes living abroad but hoping to watch swedish christmas TV).
But they also offer a whole range of other countries such as the UK, France, America, Canada, etc ....

But obviously, dont forget the queens speech this year.
As it could be her last.

You know something ????

As we are doing the British Christmas thingy for the relatives in Nässjö this year, Her Majesty will have to give her message to an empty house, unless I can mount the Sat dish on the car blink.gif

On a side note, does the French president give christmas speeches?
If he does then this also may be worth tuning into as it looks like it could be his last also.
Hopefully he can team up with "Dire Straits" and sing a cover of "Money for nothing" LOL

I always have had too many issues with the above.
especially if there is something you want to watch, has it gotten any better?

Just wondering where you have been, Byke.
Why?
'Cos Sarky is no longer the president, and hasn't been since back in May. It is now a very anti-Brit homme called Hollande,

Just for your info. tongue.gif
