      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 saw a very unreliable advert for a 51sq metre condo at The Base today on a FB Property Group - apparently 2 bedrooms - how do you fit 2 beds into that space Anyway lets say it was one bed This was the figures size : 51 sqm type: 2 beds room 1 bath room 1 living room floor : 7 little sea view for rent 28000/month for 1 year contract 30000/months for 6 month contract 33000/month for 3 months contract So no 18-20k and a size comparable to VT6
  2. And its not right to compare 25-30 sq metre condos with 48 sq metres - how much is a 50 odd square metre condo in The Base - its definitely not 20k
  3. No - on the other thread when I initially posted it - other BMs rubbished it
  4. Page 10 has all of that plus a roof top pool
  5. No separate shower would be a deal breaker for me - its just too dangerous
  6. http://www.sweet3mango.com/2016/12/17/2-visa-exempt-entries-border-crossings-per-calendar-year-effective-dec-31st/
  7. Just received mine through the post sent it Tuesday afternoon
  8. http://magnacarta.co.th/safety-deposit-boxes/ They hold one key - you hold the two other keys - they are all needed including your ID or your prescribed key holder to access the box Opening times: Monday - Friday 8.30 am to 6pm Housed in a former Banks internal safe SMALL 3 x12in. 3,000 Baht/Year MEDIUM 5 x 12in. 5,000 Baht/Year LARGE 10 x 12in. 8,000 Baht/Year
  9. New service: http://magnacarta.co.th/safety-deposit-boxes/ SMALL 3 x12in. 3,000 Baht/Year MEDIUM 5 x 12in. 5,000 Baht/Year LARGE 10 x 12in. 8,000 Baht/Year
  10. Sent mine off today - another little bonus - Amex has a £5 cashback on £10+ spend - so even cheaper still ...
  11. I am not sure if this Exchange has its own thread but I think it deserves it Value Plus (Suvarnabhumi Airport) http://www.valueplusexchange.com/#/ Opening Hours 0600 hrs - 23.30 hrs every day. Look at 1:10 Located on the Basement level,near the airport rail link. Rates are better than TT by a fraction - but its within the Airport and you can jump into the safety of your taxi if you are carrying a wedge of cash Also they display the different rates for larger denominations of various currencies - mainly $'s and £'s
  12. A lot of the places mentioned are Guest Houses - it seems with the OPs budget he is looking for a hotel/serviced condo - perhaps he can confirm
  13. But the title of that is 50 storey hotel - some may not have seen it - but you can report it to the mods if you want it deleted - I am quite happy to bow to your superiority ....
