Re: Artists Gallery/Shop

if you walk down Poonsuk,passed bintabaht and Selakam there is a local artists shop on the right,at the next junction there is one diagonally across on the left.There is also a relatively new gallery/venue in either Dechanuchit or Chomsin on the right heading towards the beach.

Sure all the input the current OP receiving is good,but have to agree a quick visit to Mr Don will resolve the problem,quickly and at a very small outlay financially.Would highly recommend him for any computer problems,big or small.
