Re: รอยุพอดี

My caddie who has worked for me the past twelve years was chiding me the other day that I should learn more Thai. Added to the fact that at 74 I can't distinguish tones, nor hear much of what is said at most other times, I have a horrible time with well intentioned "English" transliterations when th...

Re: Has Hua Hin Traffic Reached Saturation Point?

Clicked on this thinking it was new and discovered I had commented in 2016.......update! Until Blu Port opened, traffic seemed to be flowing much more smoothly downtown.....now it seems not so much. But my big story is when we moved out to Cha Am south in 2007 driving to and from Hua Hin was very pl...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

In 2005 we purchased a new house just off Soi 88 at the back of the lookout mountain. (3 br, 3 en suite bathrooms and one hallway bathroom about 300 sq mtr total with inside and nice outside kitchen, pool with spa, gorgeous woodland location, 10 min to downtown) We spent 8.5 mil on it and sold it a ...

Re: Things you had better get used to living in Thailand

Most of mine are for Americans: You won't see a lot of good beef on the supermarket shelves. If you want any all beef hot dogs or bologna you better bring them with you. Most Thais don't eat beef and Muslims raise their own. There are good steaks to be had in restaurants but be careful to ask if the...

Re: Arthritis Hand Tools

Me too, just saw this. I have the same problem and it gets resolved quickly with a thin, circular piece of round rubber type material about 5 1/2 inches in diameter. She made he own out of the stuff you put under rugs to keep them in place.

Truevisions PVR s

I have truevisions PVR service.....but not directly, our service is provided through our condo. Which means I am not an actual Truevisions customer, ergo I can't get Truevisions to talk to me since the conversion to the condo was made last year. I also can't get any help from the agent the condo use...

Re: SlingBox

Hi Paul - Happy to hear you've been successful getting your Slingbox to work. For those like me who don't know how to play the access game, below are some notes that may be helpful: I had a lot of trouble over the summer with Slingbox.....they kept asking for my "provider", and if you aren't on the ...

Re: Lazy boy style recliner / Tv chair etc

Koncept has both LazyBoy and other manufacturers of recliners, both competitively priced. We bought two LazyBoys at 26K each a few months ago. Nearly half of what we paid for one in Bangkok ten years ago.

Exclusive Real Estate listings

We are placing a property on the market. I emailed my preferred vendor but they want an exclusive commitment by email before we even meet them.

I haven't listed a property here for some time but I don't recall exclusive listings were in vogue when I did.

Any advice from those in the know?

Re: buying a car

We went to Petchaburi and changed ours at the DMV because I purchased it in Bangkok. No letters needed....took an hour or so but just processing paperwork by the DMV folks. Go to DMV in Hua hin (maybe Pranburi but not sure) with your buyer. They will do the transfer for admin fees. Not much and cert...

Re: How is "your area" denial of service done, technically?

Thanks again Ralfredo. Luckily I'm headed to the U.S. (not UK) in a couple of months. I'll get together with my old employer and see what we can do.....Our computer tech helped me set up the SlingBox but we're both stumped on how to move forward. It will be a lot easier to work with some of the othe...

Re: How is "your area" denial of service done, technically?

Thanks Ralfredo.....I'm referring to what you said, yes, but I've been knocked off SlingBox, YouTubeTV and others, and I'm on a VPN, I thought they were supposed to protect my location but it doesn't seem that is true. In fact, if you go by IP address wouldn't they be assigned to the country where t...

Re: How is "your area" denial of service done, technically?

If IP address blocks are assigned by area how can you get around that with building your own machine? Where would you, or the manufacturer of some device get the IP number from then?

Re: How is "your area" denial of service done, technically?

Thanks Homer.....not the news I had hoped to hear. Can you tell us how OP addresses are assigned? Are they given out in number blocks like telephone numbers?
