  1. I have searched the forums for someone with a similar situation to my own to no avail, given the rules change so frequently someone might be in a similar situation or able to advise.. I am a British Citizen and Thai work permit holder since mid Jun 2016, my visa is due for renewal this week and the consultancy I use have quoted me the following cots in order to complete the process; - Renewal of a One Year non immigrant B visa 25,000 THB - Renewal of work permit - 8,100 BHT Also I have been asked for a 'convenience fee' of 10,000 BHT (tea money) which could very well be a consultancy scam, apparently to ensure that if I am not at the offices when / if immigration visit in case I do not happen to be in the office at the time. My question is - are the fees correct for work permit and vis extensions and what would you suggest regarding the 'convenience fee;? Thanks in advance!
  2. Ever since the introduction of the central reservation and designated U-Turns spots on Viset Rd I see an accident every other day. Not sure what this was doing as no other vehicles involved in collision. All they have achieved with this ingenious bit of road planning is make an already dangerous road even more dangerous!

  3. If you think this guy is a mug, then you are. He's a serial entrepreneur with international business interests and financially successful enough to afford such a gift. His philanthropy doubtlessly comes from a good place but at the same time I'm sure life and business can just run that little bit more smoothly with influential friends. Very schrewd and very smart. Well played.
  4. Well he would say that wouldn't he? I would rely on his track record over a sound bite..
  5. Not at all, although as a civil rights lawyer his deeply unsavoury clients aren't particularly diverse which could suggest sympathy with their ideology. The fact that he took his oath on the Koran when he was first elected as an MP tells us all we need to know about his true allegiance, as does his attitude toward moderate Muslims, whom he described on Irans Press TV channel as 'Uncle Toms'. At a time when Europe needs to take a hardline against terrorism is this the best man for the job? I don't think tackling terrorism across Europe is part of the mayor of London's remit. Perhaps somebody should tell him then. He calls himself the 'British Muslim who will take the fight to the extremists'.
  6. probably the most facile, ill-informed post on the whole thread! Aren't you Christians supposed to be tolerant of other religions? Doesn't this give you the moral high ground against other less tolerant ideologies? 'As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions' - Romans 14:1-4 'I will cast terror in the hearts of those who disbelieve m. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them' - Quran 8:12

  8. In 2001 he was the lawyer for the Nation of Islam in its successful High Court bid to overturn the 15-year-ban on its leader, Louis Farrakhan. In 2005 and 2006 he visited terror-charged Babar Ahmad in Woodhill Prison. Mr. Ahmed was extradited to the U.S. in 2012, serving time in prison before being returned to the UK in 2015. Mr. Ahmed pleaded guilty to the terrorist offences of conspiracy, and providing material support to the Taliban. And Mr. Khan also campaigned for the release and repatriation of Shaker Aamer, Britain’s last Guantanamo detainee, who was returned to the UK in November. The caliphate is rising...
  9. Where to watch EURO 2016?

    If you run a search for black box tv in the forums there are details of a service that can provide this for you.

    KODI is freeware and it is perfectly legal to sell a Box with KODI installed providing you do not infringe their trademark. Hence 'free'ware The text on an RSS feed is not an infringement. None of your other points are in dispute!

    Black Box Television do not create the actual add on's and no copyright material is pre-installed within the software thus no copyright content is infringed. As per the European directive, watching streaming content is perfectly legal. The KODI trademark is not being used to PROMOTE the product which was my point, not that it was not a KODI system. Of course KODI are going to distance themselves from any accusations of enabling piracy. They are a business. It is true that nobody can guarantee that the signals can be there tomorrow which is precisely why a DIY system will be obsolete within a few months. These add on's disappear and reappear under different names (look at Genesis/Exodus). This requires regular monitoring and OTA updates to the build which no KODI resellers are able to do as it not a function of KODI and requires significant development (coding) time. This is the difference between a build and a skin. The vast majority of online TV services in Thailand charge a monthly fee for support, updates and service. If anyone is ripping customers off, it isn't the guys providing the ongoing services for free!

    Article 5 of Directive 2001/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society must be interpreted as meaning that the copies on the user’s computer screen and the copies in the internet ‘cache’ of that computer’s hard disk, made by an end-user in the course of viewing a website, satisfy the conditions that those copies must be temporary, that they must be transient or incidental in nature and that they must constitute an integral and essential part of a technological process, as well as the conditions laid down in Article 5(5) of that directive, and that they may therefore be made without the authorisation of the copyright holders. https://easystream.ie/is-streaming-legal/ It's amazing how many legal and technology experts there are on this forum.

    I don't think the fact that this is a customised build of KODI was ever in dispute? In fact this was clearly referenced in the advertisers response. The point being that the KODI trademark is not being used to advertise the product. If a company are able to provide fully supported, tested, customised and regularly updated product then I don't expect them to do that for free. Paying for a service is not being 'ripped off', I guess you just expect everything in life to be free. Given that cable costs in Thailand are up to 2,500 BHT a month, a one off payment of £112.50 is an absolute bargain in my book.
  14. Black Box TV

    That was a reply from the advertiser and not promotional . Looking on the website I cannot see any mention of KODI. Hence not using KODI to sell products. That particular hardware works great. The BBTV build is not available for download as it is commercially supported software with new builds being released every few weeks. The link is to a skin which shares the same name. Anyone that uses KODI will know how quickly these add ons rise and fall (remember Genesis)? Building and maintaining these devices on your own is a pretty big undertaking.
