Re: Auto save facility

It works fine so long as you don't do any formatting, adding of emoticons or adding pictures. I like using all of that :oops: . Yes, but it's still not done automatically. On another forum I use, not Thai related, it auto saves photos, links and so on. When you press the reply button, having previo...

Re: Auto save facility

As BB says it's really wise to use Word or some other good word processing software as it autosaves often. Not just for forums but for any long message you're typing on any web page. Then copy and paste it in. The number of times I've typed for 10 minutes on a bank or financial webpage, tried to sen...

I see. Given the site caters to frequent flyers, I thought his connecting APPS to Premium Lane was unsubstantiated click bait.
Ah. Yes probably correct.

Umm

I cite Blue Collar Comedy Tour: "You know you're a redneck when ... you can rhyme 'get' with 'sh*t'" :D

Re: Suggest Something

Lines 1,2 and 5 should rhyme, as should lines 3 & 4. Yes, but: A limerick is more than just rhyme There's meter, a matter of time ... and I can't be bothered to finish it. Limericks are better heard with 3 stressed syllables in lines 1,2,5, and 2 stressed syllables in lines 3,4. Such as: A lim eric...

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

But I think possibly that they should legally have sought parents' permission though, and keeping it from them (as they seem to have done) was not in any way the correct choice...The result was fine, the best; whether the secrecy was justified I'm not sure. I see what you say, but the parents are n...

Re: Fast Track at Bangkok Airport

The other thing to smile at is the article's disbelief that this will ever come to pass. Another stupid idea that will never see the light of day. Business and first class passengers joining the hoi polloi queues. Dream on. That's not APPS. The author did a piss-poor job in distinguishing between t...

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

I just read in another Thai Expat forum that diplomatic immunity had been granted to the Australian doctor Richard Harris and two medical assistants, in case anything went wrong. This was confirmed by the Thai Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai.

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

If you consider what kind of very dangerous panic reaction any of those young children might experience if not sedated, being totally enclosed in some kind of wrapper, with a breathing mask, and also knowing he is under water, sometimes in a tiny mousehole of space and below ground, I don't think th...

The Musk monkey really came unstuck. Calling someone a paedophile, and going on to say that all expats living in Thailand are sus (suspicious), in other words probably paedophiles.

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

I think it's already been said somewhere that a lawyer has been appointed for them and they should get Thai status within a few months. .....and a General said today .."Only if it's within the law...." No slack from that guy it appears. Not to worry, Thaksin can get them a passport from somewhere. ...
