Sardinia 2013

This year we visited Sardinia for the second time, this time, the destination was Isolo Rossa in the North West of the island staying at the Hotel Relax Torreruja Thalasso & Spa. Pictures at: http://www.theimagealbum.co.uk/blog/index.php/blog/nggallery/page/2?page_id=1396/

This was one of the most relaxing and quiet holiday destinations we have been too for a long time!  Food was excellent, at least for us, and the kindness of the staff was well received!

AVG Software

Let me first of all say, I like AVG products in-so-far as their functionality, they work fine for me although I know there are people out there who may have different opinions! This article is more of a hint on managing your licences! I have learnt over a period of time that if you do not keep a strict record of when you purchase a particular product and the licence period of that product, it is very easy to respond to an email from AVG telling you that your licence is about to run out and renew now and you go ahead and do that only to realise that, hang on, I only purchased a 3-computer licence of that particular software a few months back so how come I am getting a licence renewal notice! What has happened here is that when you brought the first licence ‘for one computer’ and then upgraded to three computers, it did not upgrade your one-licence copy, that continued to run until the expiry of that licence and then you got a renewal reminder! You were in fact running two copies of the same software and the fact that AVG do not recognise this or fail to acknowledge this means you sometimes renew that software when you already have a later legitimate copy running with still a good period of validity!  My advice, and what I did was, is to log in to your AVG account (if registered) and print off a list of what you have licences for, whether past or present, and every time you receive that email to renew you check against that list! That way you avoided renewing something you no longer require. Seems to me to be a sly ploy to get us to part with our money before we realise we shouldn’t have!  When I ‘spoke’ with someone at AVG on this matter he told me to just ignore the emails and eventually the renewals will stop!  I would prefer that AVG’s ‘system’ recognised the fact that you already had a licensed copy and that they upgraded that version to a multi licence version!  That would avoid a lot of confusion!

Visiting Sardinia – Advice

Whatever the time of year, as Sardinia boasts such lush growth with some resorts surrounded by trees and green succulent growth, anyone visiting is advised to take insect repellent with them!  Some insects appear to have the ability to ‘get inside’ clothing as bites appear where you least expect them too.  Leave yourself ‘exposed’ and you are asking for trouble! Some bites are quite irritating like mosquitoes, others just appear as little red blotches and do not seem to cause any itching or annoyance! Most hotels boast air-conditioning, there are two types that are relatively common, A/C that cools the internal air in the room but does not change the humidity levels which can be quite high for those that are affected by humidity, the other actually ‘scrubs’ the air and cools and dehumidifies IT (removes moisture) giving you a cool and drier air quality.  The latter is obviously the better!  Take precautions and Sardinia is a beautiful island and it is worth those few extra minutes to apply insect repellent and or combined sun screen and repellent!  Lastly, if holidaying in a remote resort which is landscaped in natural forest areas, ensure you are not too close to any areas that have stagnant water, obvious breeding grounds for insects, especially mosquitoes!
