Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

Re: The Digital Surgery

If it is quick enough for you then don't bother.

Online TV stuttering is usually a buffering issue, it could be low GPU memory also but that is a lot more expensive to upgrade than system RAM.

Re: Power fluctuations - electric supply

Yes, almost a daily occurrence where we live (not in Hua Hin). Very little you can do aside from hope the electric dept upgrade the transformers and supply and get a decent UPS for your computer.

Re: The Beer Thread

Its a bit smoother and more refreshing than Leo or Chang and with a distinctive European flavour, but still essentially just a plain lager.

Had a bottle at the weekend, it is priced inline with Thai beers as it is brewed and bottled here so not subject to the 400% import tax.
