  1. Old fashioned cologne/aftershave

    Those are similar smells, try Kouros. Or is this a wind up? Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  2. Just recording offences might start - add publicity for a 'fine share' scheme for catching any manner of antisocial driving. Trouble is then you must prove whose driving - not easy from video. Really, no traffic cops means they support freedom over enforcement. Sent from my big slate
  3. For 3500 there was a fairly decent 30m condo in Bangna a couple of years back whilst most were going for 5000 and freshly fitted or could fetch 7500. 3500 included Daikin air and a bed, clean but minimal furnishing. We found one with a basic kitchen for 4500. Great view, park outside and great cheap food. Sent from my big slate

  5. Generally it's a good plan, but take care - one had a go at pulling my clutch in for me - but ended up nearly pulling his arm off. Best steer a wide berth and just avoid them altogether. They're held in very low regard because of this kind of stupid activity - nothing done about cars, which (by default) seem to be in the right doing whatever they like.... drive on the right of the left lane, or on the left to block bikes which shouldn't really be undertaking anyway... should be overtaking so more police can catch them.
  6. Officially not supported by police or drivers. The only limit I'm aware of is the 120 - there are no other enforced limits (120 the only one ever programmed into the cameras - even with 80 signposted!) Sent from my big slate
  7. Those are 'signs'. You're confused. For example, on some expressways there are signs reading '80' but everyone says the 'limit' is 120 and everyone drives at any speed they like because WITH NO ENFORCEMENT THERE IS NO LIMIT. Only the odd fine to pay if you get caught on camera... Sent from my big slate
  8. New lottery tickets for September 1 draw

    No, I never got first or second or any other prize. You have to be in it to win it, and I'm not in it. Next question...
  9. decrapify computer in Bangkok

    The risk from that single event was tinier than the 1000 per day threats to MS users... as with Mac malware, the risk is one in fifty billion and makes huge news because it is news. With MS it's daily floss. People even install security software and then tell it to stop bothering them so they can get work done. Actually the advice is to only install from trusted sources - something that doesn't make sense to Windows users. Use repositories and download official packages. You're not installing often. The risk you seem to worry about? "f you downloaded SPECIFICALLY the 64 bit edition of Cinnamon 17.3 on EXACTLY the 20th February then you need to run a check on the ISO image you installed from (details given further down)" Well stop worrying - it only ever happened once, and then for just an hour or so before it was stopped.

    Linux Mint No need to install much. It already comes with software to edit your photos, to import your photos from the camera, office software... Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  11. decrapify computer in Bangkok

    avoid MS if you like good free stuff! Install Linux Mint - no crap for me since 2007. Everything runs very smoothly now, much better than in 2007, with an added bonus, I can use my phone to dictate and send text to the computer if I am lazy to type.
  12. 90 Day online back up again.

    Nov2004 in the URL shows it's more recently updated then most Thai websites. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  13. Maybe he was wrestling with his seatbelt trying to fasten it properly? Any ideas? Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  14. You'll find that cancer and alcoholism have support from most tax collectors the world over - and governments "get richer" schemes are more of a modern trend than ever! Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. I've seen them attack dogs quite brutally - one shop owner used the wrong edge of a machete to crack then across their backbone. Anything goes, but no killing or impounding. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
