Re: More demolition in Hua Hin - Chomsin road

Railway crossing/Chomsin Road? I tend to use this map when I'm not sure of a road name, and the railway doesn't go near Chomsin Road. (no idea if it's you or the map that's wrong). The railway directly intercepts Chomsin Road. If you go from the Soi 88 roundabout, pass the trainstation roundabout, ...

Re: 2018 F1 News and Prediction Tournament

Sauber to race with Alfa Romeo branding next year They're be using 2018-spec Ferrari engines, as opposed to the year-old engines they used this year, plus with a big cash injection from the Alfa Romeo branding, we should expect them to make a big push into the mid-feild next year. Torro Rosso will ...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

Another Coinbase rant.... I strongly suggest that people find alternative locations to keep their coins; It took 6 hours on Wednesday morning for them to process my request for sending coin to another address, which was due to a backlog of transactions. The website was reporting "degraded performanc...

Re: Kasikorn Debit Card

I seem to remember being told that if you want to use the card abroad then you have to use either the first four or the last four digits of the pin. Probably best to check when you renew. As for other Thai ATMs; my 6-digit Krungsri card works in every ATM I've tried so far so I wouldn't worry about ...

Re: Phanaeng curry

I've also had it both the sweet & milky, plus the oily and spicy variety - and also spicy and milky; but never once was it anywhere near the heat levels that you can expect from most other Thai foods.

Re: Chang Party at Market Village

Indeed; went there a couple of days ago and the music was way too loud. It clearly wasn't putting anybody else off, as the place was full - we couldn't even get a table. The Christmas theme has started very early this year; I think BluPort had their tree up in the first week of November, and the peo...

Re: Drivers License Dec. 7 2016

I have to change my Thai driving license from a 1 year to a 5 year soon. Looking at the above posts: Do I need to first obtain some sort of medical certificate as mentioned above? Yes you need a medical certificate if moving from a 1 or 2 year license to a 5 year. You don't need it when renewing a ...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

Just checked out both Kraken and BitFinex; neither offer trading in GBP - annoyingly you don't find this out until after you sign up :banghead: Hi Pleng, You are correct with BitFinex. That said I have to call bullshit on Kraken. I saw those too, until I logged in at which point they promptly disap...

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

Irresponsible and ignorant attribution to restaurant chains with zero evidence should be called out as the BS it is. Social media and the citizen journalist. Pfft! Indeed. The amount of damage people can do to a restaurants reputation, and therefore people's livelihood, by just saying "I got food p...

Thanks. Just tried coinfloor. Identity verification failed and no reason given. :( I sent a support request to Coinfloor regarding the failed verification, which I guess was probably due to registering from a Thai IP address, and they got back within 24 hours saying they have manually passed the ve...

I've done a Google search and there really doesn't seem to be much around. I guess with the volumes I'm trading I could get by trading in THB so I'll give BX a try.
