      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. You could always get a SETV before you travel (they're free now). This will expire when you leave for the Philippines. Come back in on a 30 day visa exempt. Problem solved!
  2. They've stopped doing the free coffee/tea refill on breakfasts now. Been having brekkies here for 3 months now but at 145 bht (with 2 coffees) it's no longer good value.
  3. If you have the offer of 10k per month, from 1 July, in writing I would accept it because :- You don't have a contract with matrix. You have a contract with City Centre Residence who have no money. They pay Matrix a huge sales and marketing fee from your money, leaving just enough to make stage payments to the contractor. Your contract will state that disputes will be dealt with by arbitration which is lengthier and more costly than the courts. Also, if you win you will then have to go to court to get payment. If you do decide to go down the legal route it would be better to use a BKK company because this is thailand and it may well be that local firms are "looked after" by the large developer's. Finally, buildings 1&2 really are close to completion. Maybe end of February /March. Beds and furniture were being delivered last week and there are plenty of workers on site. Just remember don't take the key until you know that the OR6 is in place and the building has been signed off.
  4. click on the ads mate. It's another advertisment for the whiter than white New Nordic Group. Anyone else noticing a pattern?
  5. He never bothered to give us his arrival date mate.Doesn't matter cos it was bullshit anyway. He's started another thread saying he's coming for 90 days on 25 January. 555
  6. guess we'll have to know his arrival date.20th January to mid may is less than the 135 days he's quoted as staying.
  7. he's only got 90 days max from 28 February. If he's coming say 20 January for 135 days that means he'll be short by a week or so.
  8. Soz. Was answering wtfname's post. Yes I'm a dinosaur
  9. Nope. If he leaves before 28 February he will run out of days on his 2nd visa plus extension Standard waiting time in Phnom Penh is reported as 3-4 days, don't know elsewhere.Nope. If he leaves before 28 February he will run out of days on his 2nd visa plus extension.
  10. The way to do it is. Get a Single entry TV before you leave. It's free now until 28 February. Extend after 60 days at jomtien. 30 days for 1900 bht. Leave the country after 90 days and get a SETV from a neighbouring country. You'll have to stay overnight for processing. That gives you another 60 days. DONT go down the Multiple entry route. It's expensive and pointless.
  11. Laamok did say that Kurt Svendheim was once a dodgy dealer, on this board, so I don't think I've broken any rules with my previous post.
  12. Can't believe this thread is still here. New Nordic make Harris Black look like a choir boy..... But they do advertise here!!!
  13. Excellent idea and good money spinner for them. Leave your will, chanote, bank details etc in there. Just inform your next of kin back home where everything is. Hey presto they've got a customer to finalise your estate. I doff my cap to you Tony!
  14. But you need to factor in the cost of a Cambodian Visa. If you fly to HCM you don't need a visa. (depending on which country you are from).
