  1. DVD Player Change Zone - help

    There's an idea. Thanks!
  2. DVD Player Change Zone - help

    oh dear....that had crossed my mind but with 22 DVDs and however many Gigabytes that would translate too.....*sigh* Thanks for the heads' up!
  3. DVD Player Change Zone - help

    Bought a huge stack of BBC original DVDs in the UK last week only to find out they won't play on either of my two DVD players here in BKK. One Samsung and one cheap little Compro which I bought at Big C a couple of years ago. Called both companies and both said it is 'illegal' to change the PAL zones even though the content is legal and they wouldn't help. I can't find any of my two machines listed on those 'hack a DVD player' site so my question is - does anyone know of some little enterprise at say Panthip Plaza who can change the zones? Many thanks! I was busting to watch Only Fools & Horses but I am feeling the fool for not thinking about this possible conflict.

    oops! Lol
  5. Ok; let's say it takes months. But in reality, it doesn't. But let's say that it does take months. Do you think she would then reimburse all those strangers that donated? I am prepared to wager 'No'.
  6. As much as I feel sorry for the kid, it was an accident. What is beginning to get on my nerves is this immediate rush to seek financial aid from strangers when, and in this case, they look middle-class and will have assets - including a home and probably a car or two. Further, they can't be impoverished if the lad has been travelling on and off in Asia for 2 years plus now. If she'd said she'd sold the car, disposed of liquid assets, cashed in her savings account etc etc, then I'd have some compassion and drop a few quid into the box. But this smacks of greed.
  7. Jeesh....one good / nice story of the day and you have to debase it.
  8. Spot on. So many of these TV posters moan endlessly about Thailand and why 'can't it and the people do things as we do at home'; yet...they're the first to bitch about immigration in their home country ruining things and bleating on about how immigrants don't integrate.
  9. I'll bet quite a good proportion of Thai life gets on your tits by the sounds of it.
  10. Love it when respondents make statements like this without even giving just ONE example of the 'facts' you refer to. Why even bother?
  11. Could you name the more 'serious charges'?
  12. I would hope so. Less childish, ill-written and less inane content would be appreciated. Gone are the days when TV was a good read with good input when George owned it. And this Inspire Pattaya 'content' - really scraping the barrel when it comes to journalism. TV appears now to cater towards the lowest common denominator and not the overall cross section of expat society.
  13. Considering that tourism under the current government is nudging to generating 12% of GDP and more than 10% of the population is directly or indirectly generating an income from provision of services - what's your problem?
  14. Speeding British rider kills Phuket local

    Let's wait for the blood alcohol test of the Brit....his insurance coverage...his version of the incident....and any CCTV coverage of his driving before the incident. Rip to the Thai man.
  15. There is no image of the front of the truck. How do you know this?
