Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I share your frustration with the True offices. I pay annually and have learned that the best policy is to call True’s Accounts department and agree the figure with them before going into the shop and if necessary calling the Accounts department from the shop. Sometimes the office staff are frighten...

Re: The Digital Surgery

I bought a black and white HP laser printer in Market Village 9 years ago and changed the cartridge for the first time in June this year. Due to the age of my laptop and dying battery I’m considering dispensing with a laptop and buying a new WiFi laser printer and printing from my iPad/iPhone. Any r...

Re: Hua Hin International Jazz Festival 2017

I went last night and thought it was the best for many years. Two Singha beer tents at very reasonable prices, various food outlets, decent loos, great music if you like that kind of thing and absolutely packed out. Koh Mr Saxman was the star of the show who put enormous effort and energy into a who...

Re: The Digital Surgery

Many thanks for all the help. Having successfully performed speed tests to servers in the UK and USA on the site recommended by Buksida and on 3 of the sites recommended by Laser using both the Cable Office and CAT as ISP I can report for those interested that whilst neither was very good the Cable ...

Re: The Digital Surgery

I can access all my usual UK sites and my first guess if the problem was not due to my lack of computer skills was either a dispute with CAT or something to do with the promised "single gateway". Hopefully someone will come up with the solution. I'm also waiting for Ookla to respond to my request fo...

Re: The Digital Surgery

I have today changed my ISP over from CAT (way too expensive) to the new fibre service provided by the Hua Hin cable office who have promised high speeds. My CAT contract doesn't expire until next month so I'm basically treating the next month as a trial with the Cable office fibre. I'm useless on c...

Re: Mosquito spray called

There is a shortage of Off apparently due to one of the major suppliers in Bangkok no longer stocking it.
I eventually found some yesterday in 7/11 after failing at my 3 usual places.

Cervical neck support pillows

The excellent Stevens neck support pillow which I bought from Tescos in Market Village eight or nine years ago needs replacing. Unfortunately Tescos don't appear to stock any such pillows at the moment and I wondered whether any forum members had seen any make of cervical neck support pillows elsewh...
