      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. Just a bit of a heads up... When you get the letter from the bank, it can be no older than 3 days when you give it to immigration. Both my buddy and I got nailed on this one... We never bother updating our bank books because they are a pain in the ass to carry around, & we use ATMs all the time. When Kasikorn, (at least) updates your bankbook for your letter, they only stick in a few lines. Both my buddy & I got sent out to get a full statement to cover at least the last 3 months. (for another 100B) from the bank.
  2. From: http://www.thaipillows.com/organic-kapok-pillows I remember Kapok from when I was a kid. The lifepreserver/cushions that we used on the boat were stuffed with it.

  4. You got me thinking... 2000 a night will get you one helluva fine hotel room that you will, In all likelihood, be spending hardly any time in. Find a reasonably priced guest house, and go buy the perfect mattress that suits you. Have it delivered & set up in the room. I'm pretty sure the guest house won't mind having a new mattress, & you'll save a few thousand baht. I've seen mattresses for sale new for about 3500B, & surely they will last a couple weeks.
  5. I hear that these guys have a decent reputation. You may want to inquire further with them. http://www.tlslanguageschool.com/ed-visa
  6. If I remember correctly, the desk is just after security & off to the left. The sign says "24 hours" & if nobody is there, someone will show up. Took me about half an hour, so make sure you leave that time open. Cost about 1K.
  7. A Jack Russel? My neighbor in Canada has gone through 2 of them in the last few years. They were both dumber than a bag of hammers, & would never shut up. I lived about 30 yards away on the other side of a hedge. For 5 years+, I couldn't come home, or even walk out onto my porch without getting barked at for 5 minutes. The 2nd one would whine & cry all day if no one was home at the neighbors. Thank Christ they both eventually ran out onto the highway & got squished. Now, a nice Staffordshire Terrier makes an intelligent, gentle, & loyal companion if treated properly.
  8. I found that http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-17631-cute-html was a great, simple to use little program that works well, and can help with the basics of html.
  9. Here's a recent article on the dog trade. http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/investigation/317809/rescued-from-dog-meat-trade-delivered-into-agony
  10. A couple years ago I opened an account and put about $10K in it. I then faxed my bank in Canada and told them to wire over $50k They asked why, and I told them I'm buying a house. No problem. Kasikorn was even nice enough to phone me and let me know when the money arrived. One thing I found interesting is that when doing a bank to bank transfer, which you can do in Thailand, but not in Falangistan) the Thais put a limit of 500,000B/day on it.
  11. Yow! You see why I'm confused? I came in on what I assume is a 60 day tourist visa with the option of extending another 30 days. I understand that that is not an 'O'. The Visa guy told me that I needed to get an 'O' before I got a retirement. I said "Fine, whatever, just do it". When I came back to the darkside after my little trip, he informed me that it couldn't be done. That's why I wound up with only the 30 day extension. (According to him) I came back to Falangistan, and now my 2nd 60 Visa has expired, so that was a waste of $$$,
