Re: Buying Paint

You have me scratching my head now about ceiling heights, and I'm not going to go out and get the ladder and tape measure tonight. The US standard is (or used to be) 8'. Perhaps shrunk now to lower, similar to the crop of new MBA's putting 9 of something into a package instead of 10 and not announci...

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

^ ^ That I can't explain. The photos you've sent to me I've only used Shrink Pictures. :?

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

TIP: Don't want to find hundreds of useless photo files clogging up your computer memory in a few years time? When you download a photo for posting on the forum, and when you resize it if needed, download them to your desktop instead of to your download file. Easier to find, use, and then delete im...

Re: The Beer Thread

Guys, I just tried beer Chang with Clamato, I have to say it's utterly vile! :D No saving graces anywhere. But I'll try anything once; twice if I like it. :shock: Perhaps it's the clam ingredient? I would give it a go with V-8, and perhaps try using a normal Singha for comparison before or after th...

Re: Instant Messaging

As an FYI, LINE yesterday implemented an "unsend" function allowing a sender to remove a sent message within 24 hours. It reflects on the receiver's screen as "deleted by sender" or similar wording. Pete :cheers:

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Nothing on the Rayong south coast yet but they state a 70% chance for 5mm or more over the next two days. Each year we get something in mid December as we always lose many of the flowers on the mango trees at this time because of it. :( Pete :cheers:

Instant Messaging

LINE details below. We really like it and our service of choice, as well as my kids in the US. I don't use Messenger that much as part of my small protest concerning FB. :D Messenger also pushes update downloads at you about every week. I think needless and simply a way for them to calculate quantit...

Re: History Challenge

Are we doing "what was", or "what is"? If ruins and remnants they are all over the place. I thought you were trying to pinpoint intact existing castle structures today.
