i am using LeuPay and i'm really sattisfied with them.
the best thing is that maximal fee for transaction is 3€. in the bank where I hold current account for international transactions i usually pay between 15 and 40€

weak thing: they debt me for 0,5€ for each wrong PIN insertion.

Google Maps has updated its mapping colors again.

I have noticed an improvement with this update: until now all secondary roads looked almost the same. Now they come in 3 different thicknesses, so you know which secondary road is of higher grade, and which is just an unpaved road or a very low grade road.

Okay, so I’m watching a Francophone Swiss newscast, and I see a five-digit number written with an apostrophe: 34’980 or something.
Is that normal in Switzerland, or a quirk of Radio-télévision suisse’s graphics department?

It is a thousands separator used in Switzerland, similar to 1,000 or 1.000, depending on the country.

I found an Andorran €1 coin! They do exist! I believe I can pay €1 + VAT (€1.21 in Spain) with it .

Are you sure? They appear to have tied that to box color in Spain, resulting in good roads like A-2402 appearing thinner than goat paths like A-220 between Cariñena and Fuendetodos (In that case I'm even not sure if there's actually a road ).

At least near my hometown in Romania and in the area where I currently live in Austria, the new map is more accurate.

I help my friend with desktop publishing to finish his book about the history of public transport in Bratislava and I have come across some old timetables from 20s. The most interesting thing is the displaying of time of the operation. It reads: the line X operates from 8 to ½20 hour (I guess it is 19:30 :-) ).

Breaking news from Spain.

Have read that it is to change car plates colour for taxis, where includes uber, cabify, any other company with licence and special licences for cars with driver.
They will be blue instead of white.

Wanna avoid fake taxis who gets tourists. Will recommend to take only blue plate cars only. Never mind company or service but legal.
