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?

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

I thought I did. My internet connection is now the USA......or have I missed something in how to use the VPN?

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

"Sorry, but YouTube TV is not available in your area just yet" I get this even though I have a VPN. I got the same thing when all of a sudden my SlingBox would no longer let me use it, and defying their website claims made me select geographical area I'm in.........but I'm not in one of their areas ...

Re: rough idea of electricity costs ?

Our condo, 245 sq meters 3 br with approximately the same useage runs about 1,800 baht a month.
We had a home in Hua Hin similar size but with a pool. It ran about 3,500 a month.

Re: Thailand speed limits to be halved?

"Nothing else to add other than to repeat that speeding in itself is NOT dangerous." The Government, bless their little black hearts, tells us that driving at a speed over the posted or declared legal limit is "speeding", in the interest of public safety illegal, and by extension, dangerous. Doesn't...

Re: Thailand speed limits to be halved?

You have completely missed the plot. The point is, the government keeps yapping about speed limits, driver education and other things they want to address, but they don't do a damned thing about monitoring traffic to reduce accidents and fatalities. What is the point of halving the speed limits when...

"You can make the speed limit whatever you like, but until there is meaningful enforcement on the roads and society as a whole starts to give a shit about anything like this, then the authorities can whistle for it", I quote Spitfire. *****************************************************************...

Re: Hin Lek Fai Monkeys

We purchased a house in 2005 that sits directly under the viewpoint. We sold the house in 2007 but we never saw monkeys then at all, even on the few trips we took up to the viewpoint. The only place I've seen more than one monkey in town is on the old golf course by the railway station......I saw a ...

Re: Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

Thanks Pete - Interesting that you've taken me from one pet peeve to another. I paid a substantial amount for a "smart" TV about 18 months ago; found out it wasn't all that smart. I could already do what little it did differently on my computer, and their idea of a "computer inside of a TV' fell a f...

SlingBox - What the Hell? Now can't access after 3 mos.

I reported in March the I had purchased a SlingBox so I could view news content from America. Great news, eh? Finally got it to work after a lot of trial and error.....seems like there hadn't been much going on on the websites since 2014, although they are still today selling the product.. At any ra...

Re: Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

I guess I didn't make myself clear. I want Truevisions to make these offerings on their TV Subscription. I already watch more than I need on my computer, on my phone and on my tablet. I just want to be able to turn on my TV and see something beside CNN and BBC

Truevisions - How about more "real" news channels

Since moving here eleven years ago I have been quite pleased most of the time with the selections I receive in Thailand from Truevisions. Because I am an avid sports follower I count on Truevisions to give me a broad range of United States sports activities. Most of the time they do pretty well. As ...

Re: Problems with gmail?

I have an issue with this frequently with a couple of my friends. I'm pretty sure that the format of a message won't generate server errors, especially if it came to you sucessfully in the first place. I get errors with a couple of friends who spend a lot of time passing around jokes and stuff.....o...

Repairing white screen TV

I have a 19 month old Samsung 550OJ Smart series that just went white-screen today. Out of warranty and too big to lug around much. Does anyone have a recent similar experience that resulted in a successful repair?

Also is the repair center still open north of Index?

Thanks for any responses....
