Re: Melbourne woman drowns at Phuket beach after ignoring warning signs

Well picked up, yes, but what do Australians do if they can't see a Yellow flag?
Go and see Dr. Parirat maybe? :rasta:

Actually in the photo on the link that Bluesky posted there appears to be some English writing on the Thai flags.

Re: Melbourne woman drowns at Phuket beach after ignoring warning signs

Yes tragic. But what that link does not point out is the following: https://thewest.com.au/news/world/aussie-woman-barbara-fistrovic-dies-at-kamala-beach-in-phuket-thailand-ng-b88603560z Red flags on the beach in Thailand indicate it is not safe to swim, unlike in Australia where swimmers are asked ...

Re: The Home Air-Conditioner Thread

Mostly you will be constricted by what size units are available. Here they range from 9,000 BTU, 12,000 BTU, 18,000 BTU, or if you really have a big area, 24,000 BTU which may be better served with 2 X 12,000 BTU units. In the old money a rough rule of thumb was the area in sq feet x 25 = required B...

Re: What Do You Feed Your Dog

The Pedigree wet canned I've seen here has "produced in Australia" labels on it. That gives me a bit more confidence that actual beef and chicken are going into it and not road kill or endangered species
Wont be road kill, all of that is exported to the USA as Hamburger Meat. :rasta:

....Although why you would need a gyro stabilised camera on an airship in the first place eludes me....

Re: Army in new bid to get its airship flying

Being a sticky beak, I looked into the type of camera(s) that are quoted as still being useable. Although why you would need a gyro stabilised camera on an airship in the first place eludes me. The price listed for the camera plus control system just about equals the cost of the airship. I just wond...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

The only true forecasts are based on the synoptic charts. Radar is ok for closer in evaluation, or if you are in a ship or in an aeroplane. The following charts show the wind speed and direction and the pressure gradient. If you click on any of the charts they will expand into a much bigger picture....
