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.
I don't, but I've heard of people receiving warnings from their ISP.

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

My cam is excellent (or I thought it was) during the day, but not so good at night, although it was used for a night time accident (I wasn't driving), and it was fine for insurance/police. At the end of the day, you need megga-quality for hit and run, and nothing else as far as I can think.

Re: Warning for Betternet VPN Users

I'd been having connectivity problems for a few weeks - in particular with this forum. I've had a few ding dongs with forum admin, but in the end they were right (they usually are :D ), the common denominator was Betternet. Switch it off, and everything was fine. Switch it on, and grind to a halt (a...

Re: Bat Cave near Cha Am

:laugh: Actually, without GPS it is very hard to find. My GPS took me across a dirt track through the middle of a field. This was particularly spectacular on the way home, when it was dark. Bats everywhere swooping down grabbing the bugs in my headlights. A shame I didn't have a dashcam back then - ...

Warning for Betternet VPN Users

I've been happily using Betternet Free VPN as an extension to Chrome ever since it was recommended on this Forum. In the beginning I regularly checked my IP Address to ensure what it was doing was what I wanted it to do. As time moved on, I became complacent. It has been playing up recently, regular...

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Yes, my cards are not class 10 or anywhere near that. I was sold run of the mill SD cards when I bought the cameras, and have used them ever since. I'll see how the Go Pro comparison goes. If Go Pro gives similar results, I'll consider a better class of card.

I'm not sure anybody "condones" it but it is normal. At the least certainly not unusual.
There were a couple of members who didn't seem to think such antic were OK on a public highway. I will admit, I've just been back through the posts, and support wasn't as strong as I remembered. :oops:

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

BB, clarity of the videos depend on the resolution (i.e. number of pixels) the dashcam is rated for. Most these days can record at a true 1080 resolution at 30 fps (frames per second) . Don't settle for anything less than this . The front camera I got has a resolution of 1296, which helps with the ...

Re: Bat Cave near Cha Am

You'd probably be better off getting a taxi. When you get there, just before dusk, you sit on somebody's roof to watch the spectacle - nothing special apart from the sight of 2 million bats flying out of the cave, which is actually amazing. When we went, we were the only ones there. The owner of the...

The bit beyond TKs was also flooded, with the road closed. Establishments like The Room were still cut off.

Re: Best "free" film/TV streaming sites?

I'm downloading everything I need these days, supplemented by True Visions for the footie and ifollow to watch Plymouth Argyle matches live. I was watching the likes of Sky News live via a freebie VPN, but that hasn't worked for a couple of weeks now, with the message: sky.jpg I've been thinking the...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

LOL, wear your wellies.

Actually, I was down that way, and it's so sad to see the drying out operation taking place in so many homes and businesses.
