Re: Consumer Association

Thanks Nereus. Had a good look around the site and it appears to be only concerned with the Government and Authorities wrongdoings. It does have lots of help for making complaints about the various departments but not what I'm after.

Thanks again.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

I was down there watching earlier this morning. Cars can't use it yet but bikes are still taking their own route(s).

Re: The Digital Surgery

Try this http://snailsuite.com/ I have found it to be the easiest and best. I run it once a month. It will download and install any new drivers it finds and lists all the drivers on your system.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

Does anyone know what the end result is going to be like. A friend has said he has been told it's going to be a roundabout/traffic island.

I'm up for the entertainment value of that ....... :cuss:

Re: Currency Transfer Limits

Currencyfair no longer have a Baht changing facility. I have been using TorFX for my last few transfers. No limit imposed but you will need to specify what the money is to be used for. I always say '' Living Expenses''.

Re: Staying safe on your computer

You can get around this with the VPN, just set your location to UK. I use Hola, which is downloadable but also included as an extension in C...

Install a VPN if you need to read the Daily Mail, everything else is fine.
