It has been possible to use, but we had to block the screen leaving the computer open, and even still, the flickering continued regularly.
I therefore found IREPAIR in Glyfada, just along the coast south of Athens, who ordered a new cable, but it has taken so long to arrive.
However, a few days ago it FINALLY appeared, therefore we sailed up rapidly just ahead of a strong Meltemi.
Tolis from IRepair completed the necessary, and I collected my computer this morning...fingers crossed, as all seems to be operating normally.
Therefore we are not here in Athens to 'play tourist', BUT we did witness the most fascinating full moon last night.
The Meltemi is blowing strongly, as it can do at this time of the year.
My girlfriend, Louise arrives from the UK next week, so we plan to anchor off the local bays until she arrives, then sail back immediately to the islands, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city lights.... far too noisy, dirty and dusty for us.
