Ronnie Corbett, best known for The Two Ronnies, dies aged 85
http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35934024


Caught a bit of a TV tribute to him last night, didn't realise he'd passed away.

Wasn't really watching so not sure how this was relevant but there was a great comment from some Aussie woman,

"Most Brits think optimism is an eye disorder"  :iroll:

Very sad, another part of my Saturday night viewing as a child has gone.  It's turning into a horrendous year for losing people.  Caught a telephone interview with Brucie yesterday and hopefully it was just due to his grief but he sounded very frail.  :(

MyBank to make online shopping easier and more secure

The service, called MyBank, is supported by the country’s main lenders (Alpha, Eurobank, National and Piraeus) and will become available from end-April.

It will allow online traders in Greece to collect virtually all their commercial revenues this way from Internet and mobile banking users.

Choosing the MyBank icon on the traders’ websites will redirect users to Internet and/or mobile banking solutions of their own bank from which they can make their payment confirming an order of credit transfer with all their personal details already filled in.
