      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is not down - just running very slowly due to the task of reindexing the millions of posts in the database due to an upgrade of the server software. Unfortunately it is difficult to predict how long this will take to complete so all BM's are implored to be patient. You can all help to speed this process by refraining from posting pointless stuff and please avoid uploading photos till it is finished.    Sometimes users are experiencing very slow page reads or error pages and this is caused by server load.    Please note that many of the old features are not available atm but this because they cannot be reinstated until the reindex is complete - so don't be too concerned about missing bits as yet. However .... please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.   Current Progress as of 8pm Bangkok time 20 March 2017     Current Progress as of 2:30pm Bangkok time 21 March 2017     Current Progress as of 1:00pm Bangkok time 22 March 2017     Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. Simple answer dont fly into Sukhumvit (pilots have a bastard of a job jiggling the landing gear between the traffic anyhow) ;) That aside If immo gets the idea that you're working in-country on Visa Waiver's etc the next step in their logical progression is to see the Song Muen (in cash) .
  2. No you misunderstand most places will levy a couple of percent on top of purchase price for using the card Nothing whatsoever to do with the shearing done with 'dynamic currency conversions'
  3. Most places in Thailand zip you for a few percent fee at P.O.S. for using a card in any case for a purchase so however clever you are being in your choice you are losing over cash in any event
  4. Then I would ring them If you get a well speaking intelligent person on the other end explain and ask if THEY can rectify it for you But As I suspect you already fear, you are in a dilemma Leaving it alone might compromise a transfer Messing with it might cock things up until you are there in person
  5. Just look on it as a tax on stupidity/laziness Thailand has no culture of spoon-feeding consumers and protecting them They will fiscally rape you any which way they can till you stop giving
  6. Oh this again it goes on and on in perpetuity and always comes to this: If you've got gonads bring cash (despite what you've been brainwashed into believing it is still King) If you're short on gonads keep paying the ATM fees blah blah (unless you're a crowing septic all Schwabbed up ;) ) If you're in for the long game open one or more Thai bank accounts ;)
  7. Id love to be a fly on the wall as you try and engender anything positive from the brown mafia explaining all these 'Boys Own' clues BTW A suitcase WITH A ZIP !! (may as well leave the contents on the landing)
  8. The best kind
  9. And swallows too whats not to like ;)
  10. How about an A4 laminated photo of a cobra with 'caution pet snake inside' (in Thai script)
  11. Thumbs up for this (and throwaway price too) http://www.lazada.co.th/fancytoy-hidden-remote-digital-alarm-clock-jmhg-surveillance-camcamera-video-dvr-record-7516824.html
  12. Well best of luck with that Confusing home country 'consumer rights' with the laissez faire attitude in Thailand to any such matters, and the predilection in Pattaya specifically to completely ignore such grievances as any day soon a big fast airliner takes it away for them.
  13. No i ts an internal HDD But for very little money you can buy an enclosure (case with ports for USB) to turn it into what you desire
  14. No the way it was done is the popular modus operandi. Employed at holiday destinations world wide as it gives the staff exactly that 'out' You're a drunken holidaymaker who miscalculated his spendings If someone (heaven forbid) was to steal it would all have gone n'est-ce pas. .
  15. aye but three possibly four half fingers lying about brings better closure
