Where to find . . . / Yellow 1/2 inch PVC pipe

Anyone happen to know if yellow, 1/2 inch PVC pipe is readily available around town?  Actually, I don't care about the color, but it is usually yellow for some reason.

Tks, lah!

Hello all,

Stevve has reported he gets this error message when trying to post to the forum:

*** Forbidden. Please enable JavaScript. E-mail seems to be spammer. ***

Realist also was having this problem and in addition a warning that his IP address was suspected of spamming.

Unfortunately, this is outside of my skill set.   When I contact CleanTalk support, they always seem eager to be helpful, but in the end they are not.  Here is what they said last time regarding Realist's IP addy suspected of spamming

"We don't see any requests in your logs with this IP 180.XXX.XX.XXX. Also, it's not in our blacklists"

Is anyone else having difficulty logging in, creating new posts or replying to posts?

Please let us know and describe the problem as best as you can.

Laws, policies, regulations that can't be enforced or won't be enforced, piled upon other laws, policies, regulations that can't be enforced or won't be enforced is not helpful.  It causes disrespect for the laws and for the government and for the governors, and encourages people to ignore, avoid, or flaunt the laws.

"He also said he would create 1,000 new jobs in immigration to improve efficiency" pretty much tells the story.

UPDATE:  Registered Letter Arrived!

I sent a form via Registered Mail  to Social Security in the U.S. on 29 Aug and tracking confirms it was delivered on 18 Sep. Unlike the past, the delivery was confirmed on both

Thailand Post tracking =>

as well as

U.S. Post Office tracking =>

Not exactly speedy, but proof of delivery in this case was more important than speed, and a bargain at 104 bahtski!

This is good news because my guess is that it was letters to big government agencies such as Social Security were the ones most likely to disappear on their way to delivery or at least not get signed for and recorded in the system as delivered.

FedEx uses agents upcountry.  I don't know if the Khon Kaen agent for FedEx is still TNT on the other side of the parking lot from TESCO.  They change agents from time-to-time. 

The call center => 1782 will tell you who the current agent is. They will also give you the rate over the phone if you have the weight and dimensions.  If it is longer than 36 inches and/or over some particular weight, custom charges apply, and they ain't cheap.

Also, if you are sending something valuable, keep in mind that FedEx, DHL, et al are BRUTAL about charging duty and a lot of other inscrutable little  service charges which add up. EMS has always been much more reasonable in our experience, often not charging duty or only some minimal amount. The service is nearly as good and reliable as FedEx and much cheaper.  Go to the P.O. and they will give you the rate for your item.

The Pulliman is right down the street from Kosa, and there are many restaurants with good Western food in short walking distance from Kosa.  Tuckom shopping center is across the street with several fast food and other restaurants and a min-Tops supermarket. Also, Watsons and Boots drug stores. A few falang bars, places to rent cars and motorbikes.  That area is very convenient for amenities.

If I were married, I would avoid getting involved the the TM30 transaction except "behind the scenes" as needed. I would not talk to Imm or the police about it,  and would not allow them to try to impose it as my responsibility.  I would of course provide all the support and assistance wifey needed, whatever that might be, but finally wifey would do the deed of handing the form to cops or Imm, not me.

Wrong form number Rex.  TM30 is the form confirming your address which up to very recently has not been enforced in Khon Kaen.  The 90 day form is TM47.

My bad!  Thanks for correcting that LungBing!  I think the reason I made the mistake is that it still confuses me that some  falang seem intent on training Imm to regard us falang as responsible for the TM30 when it is the owner of the place we reside who is responsible.  Even if we are married to the owner of the place we reside, it is still the owners responsibility. Although understandably we might want to manage that from behind the scenes, in my opinion, it does no one any good to directly participate in the process and insert ourselves in between wifey and Imm. Why would we want to take on another obligation, particularly for something as insane as the TM30?

You file a 90 Day Report 90 days after your last one, or 90 days after your most recent entry into Thailand.  Which port you enter from or how long you were out of the country is not relevant.
