Open discussion / Re: New phone
« on: January 24, 2020, 05:09:59 PM »
I would recommend a Samsung Galaxy S8. That is a couple of generations old now, they are about to release S11. I see them on Lazada for B6K-B12K => - That way you get a full-featured phone,  one of the best phones ever made without having to pay B30K.  If in a couple of years you guys feel like upgrading, wifey will have a better idea of what kind of features she wants and needs and can make an informed buying decision.

Personally, I have never had anything but SIM card phones. In the beginning, I  used to add money with those stupid cards you buy from 7-11. But for years, I add money from my online banking. For some reason, I am "allergic" contracts and getting bills in the mail and stuff. I have always used AIS, but if I wanted to change providers, I could do that tomorrow in ten minutes.   True and other providers have complicated packages where you get your internet, TV and mobile for one fee.  Maybe those are good deals, but I can't wrap my little brain around the numbers. But that's just me.

News and Announcements / Anyone having problems accessing the forum?

Hi All,

Terry says he has been having problems all day accessing the forum; getting timed out messages.  Anyone else know of any problems?

I have no problem accessing the forum on three different browsers and from my mobile, so I assume the problem is with Terry's connection. 

But, pls let me know if anyone else is having problems.

Anyone have experience getting a proper eye exam and prescription, and then buying the glasses elsewhere?  Recommendations?

Tks, lah!

House for rent (sale?) Pimanchon One at Bueng Kaen Nakhon.

If anyone remembers  Big Dave  this is the house he used to rent many years ago. Later Carl Janowitz rented it.

The house is not visible behind the trees in the photo, but most of the houses look the same in this village. I think it has 4 bedrooms. However, before Dave, the interior was completely gutted and rennovated, so the layout is unique compared to the other houses.

Nice village. Nice area. I don't know anything about the terms or anything. Call the number in the photo. Only downside is the hostile neighbor across the street.

It is one way to keep unemployment down and avoid the need for welfare.  Sigh!

Not just in this situation, asking for information they already have is what they do. It is an enormous waste of time, labor and paper!

You gentlemen are not reading my words.

As a practical matter, I agree with nearly everything you have said.  Most of your points are excellent and ones that people would be well-advised to pay attention to. I think I am a little bit smarter and have more respect for my own self-preservation than to deliberately antagonize anyone in the government. And I think I made that clear.

That is not the point, as I also made more than clear in my post that you guys are reacting to.

You are not reading my words. Everything you said is fine as a choice. The government telling you how to dress is something else.  What next?  Are they going to compel you to  make a report every time you leave the province and return home?  When the government tells you what to do, that is backed up by the threat of imprisonment, and ultimately of lethal force if you fail to comply.  Of course, that rarely happens, but it could, and it would if you chose to press the point.

As for "respect" I can see that as a practical tactic. Anyone with half-a-brain would. However, it might be offered more genuinely if it were mutual.

Sorry, I just don't see the government, any government through the same rose-colored glasses  as you guys apparently do; as some kind of benign father figure  looking out for my best interests.

But why do you think it is good that there is a crack down?  What is it that benefits you about a crack down?  What is it that benefits anyone about a crack down?  Where and what exactly is the benefit to this?

It hardly matters what I or you would choose to wear. It doesn't matter what I happen to think or not think about what other people are wearing at the immigration office.  It doesn't matter what "common sense" dictates in order to "go-along-to-get-along" and get something you want.    The question I was raising is do your really enjoy the experience of being governed so much that you want the government telling you how you must or must not dress? The question is even more relevant as the encroaching nanny state finds new and better ways to encroach.
