 Problem solved. I went to the Acer shop at Tuk-com. The guy knew right away what I was talking about. Took him 5 minutes and no charge!

 Last year a local shop wanted 900 bath to upgrade from W8.1 to W10. A forum member here sugested I go to the Acer shop at Tuk-com. I did and charge was only 400 bt.

 Thanks for the replys,

 Don't know if mine is illegal or not. I bought the laptop at power buy at Central. They sent me to a shop upstairs to get the windows 8.1. (This was 3 years ago). I paid Bt. 3,000 for the windows and power buy installed it for me.

 Last year, I took the laptop to Tuk Com to the Acer shop and they upgraded it to Windows 10.

 The fix looks a bit complicated for my computer skills, so I'll probably take it back to Tuk Com.

 I don't think it's a scam.

 Google "your windows license is a bout to expire".

 I just turned on my laptop and got a message saying my microsoft license was about to expire.

 I did a google search and it seems it's for real, but the information to fix it is greek to me.

 Anyone had this happen and could you fix it?

  Thanks for the replies,

  I'm signing our house over to our daughter in the US and just requires a simple, notarized signature. Would be nothing if I was in the states, but, not so simple while living here.

  First, because the post office has a habit of stealing my mail, daughter will have to send the document by fed-ex. Last time she sent my credit card by fed-ex, it was $118. !  Sending it back isn't as bad, EMS about 1,000 bt.

 The notary part is more complicated. I know the US Embassy and the outreach notarize documents for $50 per seal. The document won't be here in time for the outreach in Udon and the next one in KK isn't until Nov.  I can go to Bangkok. That's not a big deal, I haven't been in years and wouldn't mind seeing how things have changed. One problem there is, the document may need to be witnessed and the Embassy says thier employees can't serve as witnesses. I suppose I might be able to get another American there to do me a favor and be a witness, but if not, it's a wasted trip!

 Soooo, I'll probably wait until the outreach comes to KK. It will save me a trip and the wife can be the witness.

 Next week I'll go into town and look for the law office Terry mentioned. By the way, where is the Army hospital?

 Thanks again, Henry

  I'm in need of a notary public for a legal document from the US.

 The document won't be here in time for me to go to the embassy outreach in Udon and the next outreach here in KK, isn't until Nov.

 Is there such a thing as a notary public in KK and if so, would it be accepted in the US?

Open discussion / Slow laptop
« on: July 09, 2017, 08:02:44 AM »

  About a week ago, my laptop started working slow. Google said, if I reset it, it will wipe everything out and it will be like it was when new.

 I did the reset and it re-installed Windows 10, but now it's working 10x slower!

 What did I do wrong and how can I fix it?

Where to find . . . / Fieldglasses

 Where can I buy some fieldglasses (binoculars), in KK?

 The only ones I've seen are on the ground floor of Big C and those are terrible.

  They say the medical certificate is only needed for the first license. I suppose their reasoning is, if you're healthy now, you probably will be the rest of your life.

 I always bring a certificate with me just in case. You never know what to expect. The first time, a actually saw a doctor. He just asked me if there was anything wrong with me. I said no and he signed the cert. Now, I just get a presigned cert. from the local clinic. 50 bht.


 You will see the signs on the left hand side as you drive along.

 The second one is just before you get to the end of the road and have to turn right to get to the terminal building. That one I know will transport you to the terminal.


 There are two secure parking lots on the airport road.

 They charge Bt 100 per day.

Where to find . . . / Re: Bees
« on: April 10, 2017, 09:53:24 AM »

 I've never bought any bees and we've always had plenty around.

 Swarms are coming and going all the time. They seem to like the taller bourganvilla, but will build thier hives in bamboo, fruit trees, in the roof space of the house and sala, even in low bushes.

 Just wait awhile and I'll bet you will have some visitors soon.
