      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. Are you not one of the guys who have been running Baron gogo on Soi Diamond ? And trying to sell a bar next to Friendship on Pattayatai that has been demolished since ?
  2. In Pattaya stray dogs are a big problem too.
  3. I already knew: gogos and bars with dim light are not what we need, but what many girls need, to hide their stretch marks.
  4. Most modern televisions have two HDMI ports, one marked HDMI and one marked HDMI MHL. You should use the HDMI MHL one, the other one is meant to be connected to a DVD player.
  5. My old DVD player only supports RCA, the new one supports RCA as well as HDMI.
  6. Both my notebooks do have HDMI and VGA connections. My old television only has a coax and several RCA connections. My new television has a coax connection, several RCA connections, an HDMI port, an HDMI/MHL port, a USB port and a headphone jack. None of my televisions has a VGA port. With a male-to-male HDMI cable of 1.8 or 5 metres I can connect both my notebooks to the HDMI/MHL port on my new television. The other HDMI port does not seem to support this connection.
  7. In Pattaya hotels televisions usually are connected to a local cable company (such as Sophon or TMN) and those cable companies provide channels in English and many other languages.
  8. None of my television sets here in Thailand has VGA connections, but both my notebooks still have them. Both my notebooks have HDMI connections, but only my newer LED Television has one. That being said I cannot understand that a tourist to Thailand would want to be losing valuable time with that kind of stuff.
  9. Signals of cable companies are still transmitted through coaxial wires.
  10. Complete this form first: transferstamp.doc
  11. Yesterday I went to Immigration in Jomtien for my 90-days notification. Nobody talked about this “Foreign National Information” document. It was business as usual: in and out in less than five minutes. The only thing that has changed is that the receipts are printed on light blue paper now.
  12. Not a hotel, but Majestic ST rooms, upstairs of Fahrenheit gogo, do have a see-through wall between the bedroom and the bathroom.
  13. This story reminds me of a Dutchman, Fred. Together with his Thai-Khmer wife he was running a bar with a swimming pool on Soi Khao Talo next to the entrance to the village Eakmongkol 2/2. Their business was “for sale” and only a couple of months later the swimming pool had disappeared and an apartment building was being built at the same place. Buyer, beware !
  14. Here you get a complete Japanese orchestra: Naked Japanese Orchestra plays The Nutcracker March (Tchaikovsky).
