Question: Does anyone know of anybody being caught downloading or streaming movies etc using their real ISP? I've never heard of it happening in Thailand. When I tried to download a programme using PirateBay it immediately gives a warning that your IP address is available to anybody to see and that...

Re: Tax Residency

I had one a few months ago from HSBC. Gave my TIN to them by email. I have nothing going into the account anyway.

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I tend to agree. Some reports put the locked away Ether at 360 million usd.

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the recent planned Ethereum fork (1st in a series) and the possibility of another unplanned one after the problem with the Parity wallet. https://www.investopedia.com/news/150- ... hard-fork/.

Re: Buying a new laptop

I have two Asus laptops. One is coming up to 5 years old and is the main one I use. It's fast (i7) enough even now. The other one is 10 (or more) years old, bought when Vista was the pre-loaded OS.
