      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. I have a friend that's going to be receiving 1700usd a month social security. If he wants to apply for a retirement visa, does he take his letter from s.s. to the u.s. embassy in Bangkok for verification before going to immigration in Jomtien?
  2. Old water Buffalo, likes young grass!

  3. Just curious, but how much does that car sell for brand new from the dealer?
  4. Just go over to Poipet, the casinos will give you all the cash you need. But there will be a very hefty service charge.
  5. I was just going to deposit it to make the 800,000 baht retirement account. But thinking about it now, I guess a electronic transfer is the way to go. Thanks for your response.
  6. Can thank Obama for that.
  7. If I bring a bank check from the u.s. for 25.000 usd, to deposit into a Thai bank. Do I need to declare it at customs? Their website seems to state only paper money needs to be declared. I'm confused!!
  8. Thanks guys for all the replies. I've stayed there before, but was concerned about construction noise as I like the south side. Nice to know it hasn't started yet. The problem with booking at VT6 through any of the agencies, is they want a non-refundable deposit, which is fine if there was no threat of construction noise, but nowadays it's a crapshoot. I'll be there in August, so hopefully nothing will change by then.
  9. Any updates from someone in Pattaya now? I'm about to reserve a room at VT6. Thanks
  10. We all know that comparing the Beatles to Rihanna, is like comparing a Bentley to a Kia. But I think that no one would be happier with their record being broken than the Beatles themselves. They not only preached peace and love, they actually practiced it. So, while I'm not a Rihanna fan, I salute her and offer my congratulations on her accomplishments.
  11. What does them being Jewish have to do with anything?
