Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

No, that was written in Thai - but the form is in both languages which says to me that they intend to fine a lot of farangs.

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

I'm not sure rice is a factor, look at the physique of the women in Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, all countries big on rice.

The Seven-11 virus across Thailand is more likely the culprit.

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

sting.jpg I've been on the road for a couple of weeks covering hundreds of kilometers across several provinces in Thailand on a motorcycle. Never ever do I have a problem with police until I get to Hua Hin. Every time. The sting was at their usual spot near Salesian school. First they want to rifle...

Re: Phuket visa overstayers 'pay B100m a month in bribes'

Police crackdown targets overstaying foreign criminals Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan has instructed national security agencies to get tough on foreign criminals and “influential figures” following the discovery that nearly 100,000 foreigners were overstaying their visas in Thailand...

Re: Thais rank low again at English

I'm sorry, but comparing people who can't speak English to people who can't speak Thai is simply absurd. :thumb: :agree: This has jack shit to do with the ability of expats to speak Thai. It is about the failings of the bloated and inefficient education system and the sense of entitlement that most...

Re: Irregular printer use = can't print

How do you stop your desk top printer ink from drying out or the nozzles seizing up or whatever happens to stop the printer working when you don't use it often enough? Not much you can do really, we've had a similar problem which has resulted in two dead printers. I take stuff to the resort next do...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I really don't think they should fork the chain because the wallet company screwed up their coding. It isn't a problem with Ethereum as such.

Re: Solar power setup for your home in Thailand

Thanks for that, yes a lot of info there - the pump calculation was done for the volume of water and Koi carp that like it clean, there was a certain flow rate through the filter that it needed. The a/c pump cost 1,600 and does the job fine - just thought an eco-solution would be better. You're not ...

Re: The Digital Surgery

No, something sinister is going on and I'll take it to the computer shop on Monday. At least I can get 10-15 mins of connection and working computer so can check emails and so on, albeit quickly. Well if it is not temperature related it could be a hard drive about to fail - but that wouldn't happen...

Re: Solar power setup for your home in Thailand

Not a lot of response from that company, probably because I'm not spending a fortune. :roll: So can any of you solar/electrics gurus knock up a spec and round cost for panels to power a 90w pump that shifts 4000 liters per hour? Obviously I'd have to buy a DC pump as it would be cheaper than the inv...

Re: Buying a new laptop

I'd say it is better to focus on spec rather than brand (but avoiding Asus and HP). I would consider Acer again, the one I had (Aspire 4520G) was known for graphics card problems, other than that it was a good machine. Don't want to spend more than 15k as I've been replacing them every 2-3 years on ...
