Re: Power outages in Suan Luang

Makes me glad I live in Bangkok. However the internet here isn't much more reliable (at least at my guesthouse), and 3g/4g cell plans are very expensive for what you actually get.

Re: Immigration/Police checkup on foreigners in Bangsaphan

Probably due to the bombing in BKK. **Everything** has tightened up since then. My aged friends who've been coming for years here are getting asked if they have an onward ticket (some don't get visas before they come). They (immigration) were actually taking cell phone pics of you as I left for my a...

Re: Bangsaphan Internet line

Theatre? You guys got a theatre down there? What kind of productions do you get? The kind you can't talk about in public, especially what goes on in the back seats and the toilets! I thought I was back in the Tenderloin district in the San Francisco 'anything goes' '70s! And the name is ironic, bec...

Re: High season in Bangsaphan ?

It's obvious the same is true up here in The City of Angels (Bangkok). I'd say guessing at the thinness of the crowds on Khao San Rd and Soi Rambutri that the glass is just a bit more than half full. Perhaps it's the world economic slowdown, perhaps the stinky new passport rules. Whatever. And Thais...

Re: Services needed

Beware of local electricians, especially if you intend to get your bathroom rewired, or an electric water heater installed. There's a very sad story connected to that in BS. Seems they don't know what a grounding wire is for...

Re: Good Computer Nerd Needed!

PS. If you're not already aware Win 10 is the Spy Master incarnate. There's even a built-in key logger to send your keystrokes back to Redmond (and no doubt on to advertisers). All this spying also is a major hit to performance on the machine. I've removed this crap on several machines for friends u...

Re: Good Computer Nerd Needed!

....or if you have a not completely genuine registration key, or have "lost" yours, bring it around to the Squalor Motel (room 2B in the back by the trash barrels).

I only wish women would share your desire to "find a good nerd".

Re: Thai embassy in Lao: new visa regs are bad news!

Good summary on reddit's Thai visa forum by a commenter... "New type of visa that replaces the double + triple entry tourist visa AND you can't apply for it in Vientiane unless you live in Laos as well, let alone it confirms that when you apply from your home country (yep, you can't apply for it in ...
