Jimmy,
If you are trying to connect with DFAS or MyPay, you need to have a VPN. It has to show you are connecting from the U.S.


I use HideMyAss.  But there are many out there.

I cannot log into SSA without using a VPN.  I must also use a VPN when conducting any business on a DOD website. So, I am taking it as needing a VPN to show I am logging in using an ISP from the USA. 


Wow! I feel like Robin Williams in "Good Morning Vietnam"


Adrian Cronauer:Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause of the leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P."

Newbie Q & A Getting settled in KKC / Re: Bank Account
« on: October 23, 2016, 12:17:39 PM »
I have two accounts with Bangkok Bank. One in Bangkok and one in KK. Opened them both up with a passport and a one yr stamp from immigration. Also, deposited $10,000  into each account. aka, 350,000 baht. No questions asked. Took about an hour to open each account. Gave me a debit card for each account.
 Do direct deposits through NY branch to Bangkok. Transfer what I need from Bangkok to KK.   More than happy with BKK Bank.

Where to find . . . / Re: Snuss or snuff
« on: October 12, 2016, 02:53:27 PM »
I was a can a day  Skoal user when I moved here. I brought as many  rolls of Skoal with me as I dared.  Of course all good things come to an end. I like you, tried everywhere to find Snus or anything that I could get my nicotine fix, short of smoking cigarettes. After a while I just gave up and now I can honestly say I am tobacco free.  Would I have kept using if I could have found it? Yes!. But, to be honest, I am glad I was unable to score any Skoal, Copenhagen, Snus, or anything.  If you  ever thought of giving it up, now is your chance. If you can't get it, you can't use it. Just saying.

News and Announcements / Re: Newest posts appear first in the thread
« on: October 12, 2016, 02:45:45 PM »
For me it is completely counter-intuitive to have the newest post first; particularly when there are a few new posts. I just don't like reading bottom to top........


I totally agree. It seems abnormal to me. Just because something was done a certain way before, doesn't mean it was the right way to do it.


Okinawa used to drive on the right side of the road, while the rest of Japan drove on the left.  Don't do it that way now!

Visas, et al / Re: 90 Day Report
« on: October 02, 2016, 08:21:12 PM »
Thanks for the replies. I have all the required paperwork. The TM-30 was done by the landlord and I have a receipt.  Just wasn't sure what the procedure was or where exactly to go.  The information on this forum is priceless.


Again,
Thanks

A newbie question.
Where at KK immigration do I go to do a 90 day report? Do I go inside or do I go to those windows  for "short people".  I tried to read the signs last time and it looked like I am suppose to go to the windows but not sure. I have to do my first 90 day report next month. Any advice would be appreciated.


Thanks.

Excuse me Mr Immigration or Police person,
Before you ask. Yes my dog will bite you if you come through the gate and I am not there.


Don't forget to put that question on your form.

I believe there is an amount of time that one has to be at an address to qualify for the reporting rule.
 Example would be. If you left your residence in Khon Kaen and went to visit a friend in Ubon. If you were to just spend the night and then leave for another destination, I don't think you or the owner or your friend is required to report you being there.  I could be wrong, but I think that is the way it is.  You need to be there something like 24 hours.
And if that is the case, you could leave and come back. Who is to know how long you  have actually been there?

It is a very large room. I am going to run these along the walls. Didn't want each one of them too long so that I can move them.  I figure 5 of them would work.

After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that if I want this done I will have to do it myself.  Sooooooooo, I went to Home Hub today and bought the material that I would need. They were nice enough to cut the wood to the size I needed. I bought enough to make two  clothes racks.  When I got home, I got right to work. It took me about 45 minutes of final cutting and drilling for the pole. I made only one today. I will make another tomorrow. I made it about 6ft in length and about 5 1/2 ft high.  The whole idea and why I didn't want to buy ready made at places like Big C and Home Pro is because other than cost, I am basically making one of the bedrooms a giant walk in closet for the wife.  I will be making about 5 of these racks. I didn't want the clothes cabinets that substitute for closets over here.  Just can't believe nobody makes anything like this. If I was in the Philippines, there would be shops everywhere. Yeah, yeah, I know. I am not in the PI.


 Well, anyway, thanks for all the suggestions. Kind of fun doing a project again anyway.

Rex,
Thanks for the info. If I can't find a woodworking shop, I will have my wife give them a call.
