  1.   Yes, I don't think you are going to get any further without a lawyer
  2. Do you have legal insurance? If so, go to a lawyer and even if you don't the only way you are going to move this forward is via a lawyer. Unfortunately in Germany unless people/companies receive letters regarding legal issues from lawyers they just ignore things or drag their heels in the hope the other person gives up.
  3. Windows 11

    Yeah, it seems to be a bit all over the place   "Windows 11 Pro und das Microsoft-Office-Paket Ihrer Wahl sind vorinstalliert"   "Laptops von HypTech schöpfen das Potenzial von Windows 10 Pro optimal aus"   "Betriebssystem    Windows 10 Pro"   If it is now starting up quicker and you are happy with it you can stick with it but, if not, take it back. It has a SSD drive so Windows should start very quickly and shouldn't really take more than 30 seconds to load.
  4. Windows 11

    It mentions the Operating System as Win10:   Betriebssystem -  Windows 10 Pro
  5. Radiation hardening & spacex

      You don't think that two people who are adamant that they are right and cannot be wrong will be able to agree to disagree do you?   This is what the Internet is all about - people who can't accept other people have a different opinion and have to get the other person to agree with them before they can move on with their lives. That's why some people spend a lot of time on the Internet, because they have annoyed lots of people in the real world because they can't accept other people can have a different opinion than them.   Neither of you will back down and if one of you stops posting in this thread, the other person will think they have 'won' because that is all that is important to people who can't accept other people can have a different opinion than them. They have to get other people to agree with them even if it means they p1ss everyone else off because all that is important to people like this is 'winning' and being right.
  6. When did German TV decline?

    I don't think it's just German TV. Ever since the casting shows, reality tv, etc. came along in the late 90's/early 00's TV in general has gone massively downhill and that will be the same in most countries. Pretty much the same TV programs are shown on TV in Germany and the UK, just in a different language and while you get the odd decent program here and there in both countries, you really need to search through a lot of rubbish to find anything decent.   I normally stick to the documentary type channels (ZDF Info, Phoenix, etc.) on German TV with a smattering of the odd English/US TV show and one or two series from Netflx/Amazon.
  7. Who to vote for, Bundestagswahl 9/26/2021?

      And who exactly are 'the likes of us' and why do you think some political parties don't like you?   I don't know whether you are trying to get a discussion going here but you shouldn't be asking for people to tell you who you should vote for and why. You should be doing the research yourself and then making your own decision as to who you want to vote for if you want to vote. Just because you are eligible to vote, it doesn't mean you have to.   If you want to see, which parties agree with some of the things that are important to you then have a look at the Wahl-O-Mat, which will be available from the 2nd Sep - https://www.bpb.de/politik/wahlen/wahl-o-mat/
  8. Terminating a work contract

    Do you want to leave your employer? Are you confident that you will find another job quickly? Being falsely accused isn't good but without legal insurance you're probably not going to be in a position to fight it with having a lot of expense.   You need to think about what you want out of the situation. You can tell your boss you have consulted a lawyer and you are giving them 1 week to remove the warning but what happens if they don't?   Alternatively you can leave the situation as it is even though you have been falsely accused and then look for another job and leave your employer when you have another job.   Neither option is ideal but sometimes it's a case you just need to accept things no matter how unfair they are and move on with your life.
  9. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    It's probably best to check on a government site but on the BBC it mentions - https://www.bbc.com/news/business-58006163   "Under the new rules, from 04:00 BST on Monday of next week, 2 August, fully vaccinated US and EU travellers arriving from amber countries will not need to quarantine or take a test on day eight of their arrival. However, they will still need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on the second day after they arrive. Arrivals will also still need to complete a passenger locator form. Under-18s will be exempt from isolation, and some will not have to test, depending on their age. Separate rules will continue to apply for those arriving from France. Travellers who have been in France in the 10 days before arriving in England must quarantine for 10 days after arrival, and take a Covid test on or before day two and on or after day eight, even if fully vaccinated."   This is providing that Germany is still on the UK's Amber list and that could also change whenever the UK government reviews these things. A friend of mine who was vaccinated in the UK lives in Portugal and he went back to the UK a couple of weeks ago and he had an antigen test and that was ok for entry but I suppose if you want to be 100% sure of not having any entry problems then a PCR is going to be best.
  10. Exchanging UK license

      This looks to be the case - http://www.verkehrsportal.de/fev/anl_08.php   " 10.  Das Datum der Erteilung der Fahrerlaubnis der jeweiligen Fahrerlaubnisklasse. Das Erteilungsdatum einzelner oder mehrerer Fahrerlaubnisklassen kann auch im Feld 14 unter Angabe der Nummer 10 eingetragen sein. In diesen Fällen wird in der Spalte 10 mittels *) darauf verwiesen."    
  11. Exchanging UK license

    That sounds a bit strange. I exchanged my UK licence for a DE one 2 years ago and on the front (4a) it has the date that I exchanged the licence (and it's valid from) but on the back next to the categories that I allowed to drive, it has the date I passed my test in the UK (1988).
  12. Traveling to UK from Germany - quarantine rules

    At the moment Germany is on the UK Amber list, which means that it is only people who have been vaccinated in the UK Vaccination Program that don't need to quarantine: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-amber-and-green-list-rules-for-entering-england#amber-list-rules-if-you-are-not-fully-uk-vaccinated   "Amber list rules if you are not fully UK vaccinated These rules apply if you are not fully vaccinated under the UK vaccination programme. Before travel to England Before you travel to England you must: take a COVID-19 test – children aged 10 and under do not need to take this test book and pay for day 2 and day 8 COVID-19 tests – to be taken after arrival in England complete a passenger locator form On arrival in England On arrival in England you must: quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 days take a COVID-19 test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 Read about quarantine and taking COVID-19 tests. Children aged 4 and under do not need to take the day 2 or day 8 test. You may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme."
  13. Solidly terminating a contract

    If you google 'musterbrief kündigen' you can normally find information about how exactly to end a contract and a template you can use to either send to the provider or there can normally a way to do this online if you want to as well. https://www.kuendigung.org is one that I have used in the past to cancel contracts and for mobile phone contracts part of the site is https://www.kuendigung.org/kuendigung-handyvertrag-vorlage/      
  14. why is Chinese vaccines not approved for EU travel?

    I'm not too sure about J&J being worse against Delta - https://www.jnj.com/positive-new-data-for-johnson-johnson-single-shot-covid-19-vaccine-on-activity-against-delta-variant-and-long-lasting-durability-of-response     At 66% efficiency against covid, it's lower than the other approved vaccines but against covid but I think it's got quite high protection against severe covid.
  15. Dating Scene of Germany: Emotionally Unavailable

      And maybe this is the problem. If people don't see things the way you do then it's not advice they are giving but they are just attacking you personally.   People on here are trying to give you advice but because you don't see things the way they do, you aren't taking it as advice but purely as criticism or a personal attack. You have come on here for advice presumably because you want help to change your situation and find someone to be in a relationship with but if you don't accept that you might need to change yourself in order to change your situation then there's not a lot people can do to help you and you will continue to be in the same situation.   Accepting criticism is never easy and no-one likes it but you have a choice and it's not as if only one or two people on here are criticizing you and everyone else thinks you are doing the right thing and should continue the way you are. You can either at least think about the advice people have given you here or you may have to accept that you will be in the same situation in 2 years time and still searching for someone to be in a relationship with.
  16. Dating Scene of Germany: Emotionally Unavailable

    So @Pesar I'm assuming by posting in this topic a year after your last post and 2 years after your original topic on this subject, you are still aren't in a relationship? If so, don't you think it might be about time to start listening to some of the advice people on here have tried to give you? If not, you may find yourself in the same position in 2 years time.
  17. @Tap   That's not an ideal situation and fingers crossed it improves quickly. With the time between the first and second vaccinations I'm assuming this is BionTech rather than AZ? I don't think there have been any reported cases of thrombosis with the mRna vaccines but that doesn't mean it can't happen.   Asking you to decide for yourself really isn't acceptable from a Dr. He should at least be able to give you the pros and cons or refer you to someone who can.   Remember you don't have to have the 2nd BionTech injection 6 weeks after the first. In the UK they were giving the 2nd injection up to 12 weeks after the first for all vaccines and not just AZ so you can always postpone the 2nd appointment for a few weeks and you will still have similar protection against corona.
  18. I don't have a preference and will happily have any of the vaccines, which have been approved. I've managed to get an appointment with my GP for AZ tomorrow even though I am Group 4 (50 years old) as a lot of people aren't too keen to have it either due to the negative press or the fact it's recommended to wait for 12 weeks between the jabs. The GP has mentioned that they still go by the priority list so with my GP at least, no-else in Group 3 wanted AZ.   For others that are eagerly waiting for a vaccination, keep checking your GP's website as mine updated their website this morning to say they had received some additional doses of AZ so people could email them if they were willing to be vaccinated with AZ.
  19.   So, it you think there is going to be a EU digital Impfpass what's the point with not using your current paper impfpass and wanting a new one just for the covid vaccinations? As fraufruit says, what does it matter if other people can see which vaccinations you have had?
  20. I doubt if we are going to need to show businesses our Impfpass in order to prove we are vaccinated against corona. The data protection laws in Germany probably won't allow this due to the fact that other vaccinations are also shown in the booklet. It will be an App with a QR code or a printed sheet with a QR code so I wouldn't worry about non-medical people seeing other vaccinations you have had.
  21. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    There's a 'Für Haarige Angelegenheiten' here in Cologne
  22. Opinion: what do we expect after this covid-crisis???

      And what? Is there something wrong with one person saying they agree with another person's opinion?
  23. Not if they have legal insurance, which hopefully they have,
  24. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

      Unless you are a named companion of someone in a higher priority group or you have a existing medical condition that puts you in a higher group, you will be in Group 4, which is the last group to be vaccinated. As to when you will be notified and vaccinated no-one really knows. They are targeting everyone to be offered a jab by 21st September but whether this happens or not will depend on whether the vaccine companies deliver the amount of vaccines they are expected to and how many people can be vaccinated each day.   I'm in a similar position in Group 4 and if I get both vaccinations by the end of this year, I will consider it a bonus. I am not too sure where we are up to at the moment and whether everyone in Group 1 has been vaccinated yet.   The priority groups are available at https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/themen/corona-informationen-impfung/corona-impfverordnung-1829940
  25. According to the news (https://www.zeit.de/wissen/gesundheit/corona-impfungen-deutschland-impfquote-impffortschritt-aktuelle-karte) we should be expecting 17m doses in April, which is more than the total received from Jan - Mar so things should start to pick up pretty quickly.   It is frustrating though especially with family/friends in the UK being vaccinated and things being relaxed over there and talk of everything being completely relaxed by 21st June whereas here in DE we are in the middle of the 3rd wave with things probably going to be getting worse over the next few weeks.
