Ano Korakiana's website is returning

Email received 16th December 09 from Κβκ Κορακιανα :
Dear Simon. We inform you that the site ( works again...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanassis
Είμαστε στην ευχάριστη θέση να σας ενημερώσουμε ότι το επαναλειτουργεί, μετά τη δίμηνη υποχρεωτική ανάρρωση και συντήρηση. Βέβαια, για την πλήρη αποκατάσταση λείπουν ορισμένες λεπτομέρειες (όπως η οριστικοποίηση των χρωμάτων στην πρότερη κατάσταση (καφετί χρώμα), η ανάρτηση ορισμένων "πινακίδων" κλπ), ελλείψεις που θα αποκατασταθούν το συντομώτερο.Όμως κατά τα λοιπά η ιστοσελίδα λειτουργεί κανονικά....Θα ήμασταν υπόχρεοι, εάν ενημερώνατε σχετικά, τους γνωστούς σας....Βέβαια, για κάθε ενδεχόμενο, κρατείστε σημειωμένο και το Εκ της διευθύνσεως.
After being down for two months the Ano Korakiana website is on line again. There are still things to done. I very much hope that the panoramic photos of the village will be back soon, especially the one of Democracy Street by our house and the one with views from St.Isadoras on the seventh hairpin - going up - on the ascent to Sokraki.
* * * Our chimney at 208 is not drawing. We knew this last Spring. We didn't need it done while we were in Greece during August and September. The interior stove pipe has a way of leaking smoke into the sitting room. We need it done before getting there in January or we're going to be cold. I phoned Corfu last night to check if the chimney on our house had been repaired, and learned that a hiccup about cash at the ironmonger had prevented our builder collecting the extra length of stove pipe and a new spinner we'd paid for before leaving at the beginning of October. I phoned Kostas at Kommeno. He agreed to release the pipe and spinner. I'll phone in a week to check progress. Sally also knows the situation. Thanks to Skype phoning Greece is very cheap even when phoning local mobiles.

Completed the third day of the Oversight and Scrutiny module at Priorsfield. Rodger Patrick, now with a Phd. from us, gave a brilliant summary of his research into the way police crime figures are fiddled by 'cuffing', 'nodding', 'stitching' and 'skewing'. I did sessions on questioning, weighing evidence and constructng trust at the political-management interface. Andrew will have to tutor the second two days in January.
