Re: Child Protection in Hua Hin

If the request had been less oblique he would have got a better response. I'm with Gregjam. Edit - I have just realised he is in Thailand, apparently? Sorry for missing that. Whoa, hands off time. Let him visit Hua Hin, go to the Tessebaan, show his credentials and see how he get's on. Hope he's go...

Re: Buying a house, transfer fees?

I am trying to organise change of ownership of my house from mr and mrs Dundrillin to mr Dundrillin. I have been quoted 155000 baht for land office and 50000 to the developer. Plus legal fees.that seems pretty steep to me. Land is leased under the 30 year rule. Excel says that assuming a 4.7 millio...

Re: Which Mobile Phone?

... found the FLIR particularly helpful. As example, early identification of overheated tires/brakes/bearings etc. That phone uses the FLIR Lepton IR microcam with 80x60 resolution in a tough enclosure. If one can miss the rugged enclosure & integration then there are cheaper attached IR cams for A...

..followed a couple of suggestions there, unfortunately all to no avail. Browse chrome:\\gpu to verify hardware acceleration settings, then explore chrome:\\flags. Then (one-by-one) disable "WebGL" settings (extension, prototype, WebGL2), always restarting the bowser. If no luck (likely) then in Se...

Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

The fake pictures may be taken kinda funny in the light of the new beach rules. But the explanations are lame and overplayed. It's rather obvious that the 'hawk' is a pig flying backward.

Re: The Digital Surgery

The old computer and the new computer have one thing in common - the graphics card. Powerful high-end card running 3 x 32" LED monitors. Could the graphics card be causing these problems? That's bad news, there are slim chances to solve it. It is very difficult (and uneconomical) to deal with rando...

Re: Computer slow in shutting down

Is there somewhere that I can look that will speed the shutting down of my computer One can tweak the Registry to speed up the process.

Re: Shop that can increase storage space on laptop

Thanks for all the input so far, i did what CJ suggested and put all my docs on to a usb stick but it no different at all to the storage. I'm now thinking of buying an external hard-drive so as to download and store adobe stuff on. Unless it will be better to get a shop to put a new internal hard-d...

Re: The Digital Surgery

you could try removing one stick of ram and go down to 8gb ram , see if it fixes, try with both , one at a time. I'd agree, memory stick error is a very likely cause. The suggested hands-on method works well but may take 2-3 days to see the results with the reported symptoms. There's good & free ut...

Sandboxie

Sandboxie... eliminates the need for common digital surgeries. That's a quite agreeable statement considering Windows security (or lack thereof). I use Sandboxie for ages, and nothing else for Win security on 3 boxes nowadays. Even the free version is good enough for most users. The only alternativ...
