Re: History Challenge

An obvious one near to Thailand that many of us will have seen is Fort Cornwallis, Georgetown, Penang.

So what is the nearest castle or fortress to Thailand? Not sure of a definitive answer.
Buxa Fort, West Bengal?

EDIT: No, there must be nearer ones in China.

Re: MY BEST MATE WAS POISONED IN THAILAND - JONNYS LIVING IN THAILAND VLOGS

Hmm, since it's in Foo, shall we turn this silly thread into an "Embarrassing illnesses I've had" thread? I spent a couple of years in Pakistan back in the 80s. I had a great time (perhaps surprisingly), but while there I managed to get amoebic dysentery. Not a pleasant experience, but a very good w...

Re: Help identifying this pool filter

Re: Help identifying this pool filter

Can't help you with further details, I'm afraid. It's not me, but I'm asking on his behalf. I had an idea you'd pop up with an answer!

Can any of you technical chaps give me the English name for this part? It is in an instruction manual for a sodium hypochlorite generator for swimming pools. In French, it is a filtre lesteur.

Re: Thailand to England move

I came back in early May, partly for that same reason, but even then the temperature (mid teens) was a bit...
