    Surat Thani mine bombs still missing

    from another thread running here "The civil-engineer occupation should remain reserved for Thais because it involves people’s safety, they said." 'nuff said. Where is the face palm emoji when you need it?
  2. Wharney Guang Dong in Wanchai is where I have been staying for the past 7 years whenever I go to Hong Kong. I have walked to the Thai Embassy from there when the weather was good. Otherwise Admiralty is one MTR station from Wanchai. also good bars/music at night.

    Species identification in Thailand

    "The photo is a huntsman in my workshop. " must have had a sawing accident and lost one of its legs.
  5. ok, so I am a neophyte when it comes to computers. Yesterday my computer, for some totally unknown reason, stopped connecting to some websites directly. let me explain. I have chrome on windows 10 with a dell computer. usually when I want to connect to a website I just type the website into the address window and hit enter. Yesterday it stopped connecting for some strange reason, but not for all sites. I get an error message that says This site can’t be reached thaivisa.com took too long to respond. Search Google for thaivisa ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT but when I search google (that site works usually) and click on the link for the site I want to go to, it works. Can anybody offer some DETAILED instructions on what to do to fix it? I say detailed in bold underlined italics because it can't be assumed I will understand what you are talking about. FYI after living in this country for 15+ years I upgraded my computer and bought all legal software (windows, office, adobe) and have never had so many software problems in my life. kMaybe I sould go back to Pantip and get the pirated stuff.. and please don't suggest different software, I am a neophyte. (the problem also occurs with internet explorer). Thanks for any and all suggestions. Cando

    2x4 vs 4x2

    Thanks and that is what I thought or it is some marketing schtick. They have a few models labeled 2x4 so will ask about it this weekend at the motor show. Marketing people just seem to make things up willy nilly.

    2x4 vs 4x2

    Am wondering what is the difference between a 2x4 and a 4x2 (I know what a 4x4 is). Looking at buying a new truck and have narrowed it down to either totyota or ford. lots of comparisons in this forum on the two and am leaning towards Toyota. Going to the Motor show starting next week at impact and will probably purchase there. Anybody have experience making a purchase at the Motor show? are there discounts? do they give extras? Thanks for any and all replies. Cando

    Tourist visa to Non-O

    Great news. Thank you very much. I new about the "must do it with 15 days remaining thing" but wasn't sure how that would affect my length of stay.
