  1. Considering a Macbook Pro

    MacKeeper? I always thought MacKeeper was a spam/virus program, is your experience with it good? I have recollections of problems with it many years ago and eventually got rid of it. I just looked this site at random about problems with it. https://www.imore.com/avoid-mackeeper
  2. Hand held scales

    I think Mr DIY has them, saw them in Bangkok, there are two branches I know of in Pattaya one in Tukcom and one in Soi Khaonoi in the same building as Tops.
  3. Works much better than the old ones, your font size changes automatically as you fill it in so that all your details will fit the fields. Thought my address was far too long but as I continued to type it just shrank to fit.
  4. Thanks, I guessed as much, used to do it that way myself.
  5. Useful update thanks. You mentioned having to hand write 2 copies in the OP, can I ask what sort of extension you applied for, I have only ever been asked for 1 when doing my annual retirement extension.
  6. That's good service, I emailed my application last Thursday and still waiting. I guess it depends on how busy they are on the day your documents hit their desk.
  7. Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    Not so worried about saving the fuel just the issue of running out in the middle nowhere. I'm 35kms out of town and fuelling places are few and far between.
  8. Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    Nice comparison and useful info. I'm on my 3rd PCX and considering an Aerox as a next change but the fuel consumption and tank capacity really puts me off. The PCX consistently gives me around 39/40 km/L and with the much larger tank I only need to fill up every 250 or so kms. Your indicated 33.6km/L and a tank size of around 4 litres means only half the range and living out in the sticks that could get a little tedious.
  9. If you have a rental agreement or some other proof of your Thailand address like an internet bill you should be able to get the required letter from your local immigration office. Just saw you said 'lived' not 'live' so presume you no longer have these sort of proofs, sorry.
  10. Do I have enough money?

    Don't bank on an inheritance, I have always thought I would inherit at some point but parents now reached 91, mother in care home father's health seemingly deteriorating, once he dies the house will go to mother and if she survives another 5/6 years no doubt care home fees will eat the lot.
  11. uk immigration

    No guarantees but I would be inclined to recommend they try the UK channel anyway as your son has a UK passport. Much shorter queue and if they are turned away they won't have stood in line for ages before finding out they should be at the other counter. My experience was that they don't split up families so either queue should be acceptable for both of them together.
  12. uk immigration

    Just take your wife and son with you through the UK nationals channel. Should be no problems at all, I asked about it on my first visit with my wife and have used the UK channel without problems ever since. Similarly returning to Thailand we both use the Thai channel.
  13. Yes, when I first watched I assumed he was one of the 20 with the fury of his attack. Think he got what he deserved.
  14. Pattaya Traffic Violation

    Delighted to hear you got caught. Can't stand it when people jump the red light and get stuck in the intersection blocking it for the green light in the next direction.
  15. The first truck approaching you head-on is quite is easy to miss as you can see it, it's the one behind blindly following that'll get you! Happened to me in Isaan as well, only just missed it.
