Re: Record Shop & Cafe

The only "authentic" sound is live music, everything else is a poor reproduction. LOL. Most recorded music can't be played live without it being more than a resemblance to the recorded version. In concert how can you reproduce the sound of a guitar being plugged straight into the board during recor...

Ok, I give in. You are an individual who will NEVER change their view regardless of the evidence. You sure you're not Thai and worried about 'losing face'.
No. He's a troll. Replying only encourages them.

Re: Thailand floods of 2017

I came from Bangkok on the airport bus this afternoon. Somewhere around Phetchaburi we left the main road. Took a series of 2 lane roads south of the main road, eventually rejoining it north of cha-am. Bus driver seemed to know where he was going.

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

Staying in a hotel at the moment - no fans. Aircon last night for the first time in 2 months. This morning my nose is running like a tap. OK, DM may be correct, it might be just me, but it's too much to be coincidence. I think it's not a coincidence. When I leave here during the hottest part of the...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

My only problem with air con is the thermostat is regulated in big fat centigrade degrees. A 2 degree centigrade difference is a 3.6 degree Fahrenheit difference. When set to 28C, room temp varies between 29 and 27. At 29 the humidity wakes me up unless I went to bed exhausted. It's usually hard to ...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

It seems that either the germ factory of crowded airports or confined space of an airplane seems to be the best way for me to catch cold. It doesn't help that airplane HVAC delivers low humidity air. Dry upper respiratory passages are far easier to be infected than moist ones. I always fly with and...

I use a spray bottle with 500 liters of water and about a tablespoon of bleach.
Either that's:
1) A homeopathic remedy,
or
2) You're a world champion power lifter,
or
3) You meant milliliters.

Yankees only: Online notarization valid in the US

As far as I knew the only way in Thailand to get a notarization valid in the US is at the embassy. That's $50 and a round trip to Bangkok. Last year Virginia allowed notaries to work online. Reciprocal agreements means other states accept it, though not for all things. www.notarize.com has links to ...

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

I did explain that the images are stored away from the forum's server (actually they are uploaded if the user puts them in an image hosting account), and should not be deleted. Oops. I missed that. If it's allowed then it can be done. And no-one closes image hosting accounts like Flickr and Imgur o...
