Does Anyone know if there is a Radio Controlled model car club (Glow fuel or electric) in or around Nice. I have seen the track on the way to Monaco but only ever seen one car on it. Thanks

The BBC is reported to think that the number of people in France who could see its channels after it leaves Sky's encrypted service and moves to Astra 2D is "too small to worry about" http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/article/ds10706.html

Viewers who watch the main public service broadcasters on satellite but do not take a Sky package, could be frozen out of ITV, Channel 4 and Five by the end of the year. Presently anyone who wants to receive free-to-air channels but does not want to pay for a Sky package needs a special smartcard, called a Solus card, which is paid for by the BBC as part of its "universality" strategy. The BBC will stop funding this system from the end of May after it decided not to renew its "conditional access" contract with Sky. It will move to a new satellite where its services will be accessible unencrypted. The BBC funded cards still work, but Sky is in the process of replacing all smart cards to take account of updated technology. As the BBC will not contribute to the cost of their replacement none will be re-allocated, blocking access to the commercial free-to-air channels in digital. ITV, C4 and Five have so far not indicated to Sky that they will take over funding the cards from the BBC. One commercial channel is reported in the trade press as saying that the cost of providing the cards was not merited and they would prefer viewers to watch them via analogue instead. ITV, C4 and Five say they are currently reviewing their options and would hold discussions with each other on the issue soon.

I am a 25 year old Zimbabwean girl just arrived in Cannes.  I have looked through this website and see that there are group meetings-up once in a while but was wondering if there is any other 20something English speaking girls (in Cannes) thinking it would be nice to meet for a bottle of wine and a natter about nothing.  I am not searching for girl on girl loving just a wine drinking pal! :0)   Anyway e-mail me on Katherine@angloinfo.com if you think this is a fine idea.

Can anyone recommend places to visit and things to see for visitors who only have 3 days next weekend?  I've only been here a month so don't know much myself and don't drive.  Suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, need help with SKY tv... when we move down in summer to a rental villa (no satellite tv in situ) can I bring my UK digital Sky box and card and simply plug in and watch? Or is it more complicated than that? I have a terrible feeling it might be!
