    Thanks Sheryl, My post wasn't meant to be a criticism of your help. I just wanted to have the most up to date information before making a decision. Thanks again

    multi parametric mri

    Thank you Sheryl I had previously looked at this thread and contacted by email Dr. Viroj Chodchoy at Bumrungrad. "He has treated several TV members for prostate cancer. https://www.bumrungrad.com/doctors/Viroj-Chodchoy, and got this answer" Greetings from Bumrungrad International Hospital. Thank you for your e-mail. Regarding your inquiry, we regret to informed you that the multinparametric MRI of the prostrate is not available in our facility yet. If we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Best regards, Kris  I notice that the posts in the link you give are from 2016 but I will certainly contact the 3 hospitals listed in your post.on that thread. Thanks again
  3. Laws cannot force people to want to acquire knowledge. Education nowadays is a business, it's sadly about making money and (at the University level at least) acquiring that "piece of paper". Even at the lower levels it seems the government prefers to spend money on capital projects, which can be seen, rather than invest in teachers and teaching resources which take much longer to make an impact. I have said it many times and I am sad to say it again but here, the education system is a triumph of superficiality over substance and this is a reflection of the culture. Until we see a cultural change everything will stay the same, and cultural changes take years to come about. I saw a program on Aljazera some time ago about how the Thai medical system was changed and improved. I was uplifted by what was achieved. The person in government responsible for this must have had a vision and an "iron will" to push through their ideas. That's what the Thai education system needs, not laws which never get implemented or ignored. And of course we must remember better educated people tend to want more - more from their government and more freedom. That's a paradox of education (as opposed to socialization) the world over.

    I'm inclined to agree. I had a scan to identify a kidney stone location. The operator also wanted to put in a catheter - I refused. I got no report on the scan just a hand written diagram of where the stone was.

    Anyone know if there is any hospital in Thailand with the above capability AND just as important with doctors capable of interpreting the results. Thanks

    UPS Issues and replacement

    Thanks Crossy as it was showing more green than red I thought it was OK. I'll replace it ASAP I notice that the red cable from the top of it goes to the B16 mcb next to it - Does that mean that if the surge protector is triggered that mcb will trip also? I assume the Thai electrician used a black cable to connect to earth because of it's thickness ( excuse my ignorance) Finally, is the surge protector rating adequate or should I replace it with something different? Thanks again Oops forgot the photo

    UPS Issues and replacement

    Thanks I've since taken a look at APC Thailand surge arresting blocks they have two one at 1,100 Baht that give 600 joules and one at 1,700 baht that gives over 1,000 joules BUT the site makes it clear that connected equipment (EPP) is not covered in ASEAN. I''ll try to check out Belkin to see if they have the same reservations. By the way, my consumer unit is supposed to have a surge protective device on it (see pic) so that's not working I guess.

    UPS Issues and replacement

    Thanks Crossy I have just looked at an APC UPS and the spec says " Surge energy rating 240 Joules " Would you know (without any liability on your part) if that is good or bad in terms of surge protection? Also Advice have several Voltage stabilizers eg Stabilizer 800VA DK-3 DK Gray. which say they have surge protection at 800 baht Is this what you mean by a surge arresting power strip? Thanks

    TOT REVO PLUS

    Thanks I don't think it's for me. But their new promotion for net revo 50/20 (perfectly OK for me) seems to be offering what I already have at 110 Baht per month cheaper. What I am also looking at also is that I have one of their IPTV packages which when you add up the 100 baht a month to rent the box plus 390 a month for the package (which over 3 years has reduced what you can get (no universal now)) all in all I'm paying around 1300 baht a month for inet (fiber) and TV and so as I am a careful person (ok tight) I think it's time to review if this is the best deal I can get. Anyone have any alternatives?.

    Thanks but the writing is too small to see and as far as I can see is in Thai which I cannot understans
  12. Not sure whether this should go in the Electrical or IT section. I’ll try the electrical first. I have 3 UPS’s , connected to several computers, printers, NAS boxes. 1 APC, 1 Powerline, and 1 MGE (very old but was very good ) Recently I came back from holiday to find that my main breaker and two circuit MCBs had tripped due to (so I am told) a massive bang at the substation and a power outage for a day or so. All the UPS’s were carrying no load as all the IT equipment connected was switched off although still connected via SURGE/battery backup protected outlets on the UPS’s ON restarting the computers I found that: The APC was fine, However the MGE and the Powerline would not work. The batteries on both were completely depleted (around 7 Volts) and neither would charge via the UPS. I charged the batteries using a 12 volt charger and both are now at 13.5 volts. However neither the MGE nor the Powerline will function on connecting to the battery backup/surge sockets . BUT will function if I just connect via surge protection only outlets. I check this by plugging in a fan to the relevant outlet socket. I’m not an electrician but I suspect the “big bang” has screwed something in the part of the UPS that is connected to the battery backup/surge sockets, so unless anyone here has any thoughts on that I am resigned to replacing two UPS’s. So here is my question I have looked at JIB and Advice sites and most of the UPS’s on offer appear now only to offer surge protection on RG11 sockets . That’s not what I want I want battery backup/surge protection on my outlet mains sockets. OR has something changed in the UPS specs that automatically implies surge protection on mains outlet sockets Any advice, comments, suggestions gratefully received. Thanks

    TOT are offering this product - it says Fixed line, IP phone, TOT 3G Anyone have experience of this product I don't mean TOT I already have had them for 4 years, I mean this apparently new product the have. Thanks
  14. Thanks all Went to IO today and asked what was required (in Thai) I was told that it was not necessary to report on return but wait till 90 days. Clearly this is Thailand and so I can only vouch that this was the answer on this day with this IO officer
  15. Can anyone please clarify. I have visa extension based on retirement. I returned yesterday from a 6 week holiday in Europe. On entry to Thailand I completed the entry card with my correct address - my house in KORAT which I have lived in for 5 years. Do I need to go to immigration to confirm my address now or do I just go when my 90 day is due? Thanks
