Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

Here's what a Nissan Executive Nic Thomas said back in 2022 (and battery technology has continued to improve since then). "It’s clear that most EV batteries will outlast the vehicles they were installed in, and even then, they have a worthwhile second life before they need to be stripped down f...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

The above article doesn't define "Lifetime"? As far as I'm aware, "lifetime" in this context would mean the lifetime of the vehicle. Which is about in line with what various manufacturers of EV's are saying - they expect (and experience is increasingly showing) that the batterie...

Re: TV series worth watching/downloading

Just finished watching Bodkin on Netflix. Well worth a watch, I'd say. Set in West Cork in Ireland, it's a darkly comedic thriller that follows an Irish journalist, an English researcher and an American podcaster who set out to investigate the mystery surrounding the disappearance of three strangers...

Re: 30฿ Healthcare - National Registration

Wonder why only 2 fixed dates for registration at Hua Hin, but any normal working day at Takiab. We had missed this announcement and so missed these two dates but the next time we went to HHH (at the beginning of June) they were making announcements about this over the PA system and my wife was abl...

This could put a dent in France's performance going forward.

Re: Euros 2024

I watched my first game last night, and was delighted to see the free to air Thai channels were working via AIS. So apologies to True. The cherry on top was commentary was in English. I will watch tonight's England game on Thai free to air. The only downside to Thai free to air was the annoying Aer...

Re: Euros 2024

Yes, but don't you remember the last 2 major tournaments - non-True subscribers sat down to watch the footie, and a big green screen appeared telling the world that True had nobbled other providers from showing the games? e.g. my main provider is AIS. If I tried to access even free to view channels...

And of course, if you have a VPN, all the games are available on BBC or ITV.

Re: Euros 2024

Further..I did see a short piece about TRUE showing games I think on 603 and 604? I'll post more if I see again. OMG I hope not. For sure they will take out injunctions against other broadcasters showing the games again. Fingers crossed, but it doesn't appear that way just at the moment. According ...

Re: Pae Mai transport/parking

I'm interested because I've often driven past the Pae Mai Tuesday market and noticed how busy it seems to be, but I've never stopped to look around.

Is there anything in particular that you can get there, that you can't find elsewhere, or that is significantly cheaper, for example?

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

It's probably worth noting though, that Teslas with the autopilot feature are not fully self-driving (despite what the name suggests) and the driver is still supposed to stay in control of the car at all times. In all of those fatal Tesla crashes, it was determined that, "foreseeable driver mis...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

I’m sure it’s going to take a lot of testing to convince the majority - regrettably it will probably take a serious crash/fatality to convince them it was wise to be cautious!! There have already been multiple serious crashes and fatalities involving automated or semi-automated cars, unfortunately....
