  5. recommend netbook to run linux?

    you can get old Netbooks dead cheap in the USA that schools have sold off , I got an ASUS 1000HE for $15, but 2B is the limit ( I think) you can use in the ONE memory slot but you are betting on how good the battery is , this one seems OK , I am going to travel with it and consider it a throwaway/ giveaway when I head home..... I would love to play with Fedora on it , is there a place to download a file that will work out of the box on a USB stick ? Thanks

  8. Hi , I was thinking of doing a Heart check-up for my Birthday , I do not have any Heart problems I know about , blood pressure is 130 range , I do not drink or smoke.... I expect an EKG and a treadmill stress test but what else ? How do they check for blocked arteries ? I will probably do this at St Louis Hospital BKK unless you have a better place :) Thanks for your help
  9. cheapest post is surface but it can take 4-6 weeks there is also SAL - small packet , part is by Air , then surface , it could be 2-4 weeks just go to Thai Post website and check , Customs in your country might want to open them........so then they would probably not be any good to eat !
  10. Is Trump right, calling Africa a “shithole”?

    when you are in your Limo most places look like S-holes But what he said is true , he is just not going to sugar coat his words like professional politicians , and he often speaks without thinking or caring what his words mean to others , its going to be a rocky 3 more years if you worry about what he says or Tweets everyday !

  15. Getting that fixed in California is probably $300-$500 in California with a USED side window , much more in Thailand since you are not going to get a used side window , So why only 1000 baht fine ! the one thing this does show is the built up aggression in the population , The Thai "Smile" is gone from everyday living in the city....
