  1. Move is complete. for now. I already do not like this new server... The rushiness of this (yes, I just made that word up) forced my hand... but its up and working, and while it may be a bit slow - that part is temporary. Once I secure all my data (still have a dozen servers to go) I will post a longer explanation of why this move was necessary and my plan going forward - there will be another move at some point - back to my own hardware, but it will take several weeks I think. The hardware has to be shipped from its current location (Michigan) to California, where a good friend is going

  2. Greetings Monkeywatchers, core coon crap for stopping by, and welcome to the first rays of hope as Pattaya finally starts preparing to rise like a penis from the ashes. Let’s hope the Viagra works. The main news is, of course, the proposed reopening of entertainment venues (with alcohol!) from December 1. Nuff said. Bet the pigs are already practising their formation flying. Thailand plans to boost its economic recovery by attracting one million “quality tourists” (here we go again) by the first quarter of 2022. They reckon that they’ve learned from past mistakes and will be going f

  7. I gave up on going back to the states but would like to go to Angeles in Feb. If anyone knows a cheap o-a insurance please contact me. As Jacko has said they are poor but needed for travel. I have insurance but the Thais dont accept it. I called Bumrungrad yesterday to schedule a CTA. Quoted 60- 90,000 baht. I said that is a bit high but she said no problem i will call America , they will pay. She already knew my company. If Bumrungrad can figure it out why cant Immigration?. TIT

  9. Donald Trump has a heart attack and dies. He goes to Hell where the Devil is waiting for him. "I don't know what to do," says the Devil. "You're on my list but I have no room for you. But you definitely have to stay here, so I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I've got three people here who weren't quite as bad as you. I'll let one of them go, but you have to take their place. I'll even let YOU decide who leaves.” Trump thought that sounded pretty good so he agreed. The devil opened the first room. In it was Richard Nixon and a large pool of water. He kept diving in and surfacing em

  11. Hi Guys. Sorry for the late reply on this, but this website will be changing homes in the next couple days and due to the extreme number of things I have to do there will be little to no warning before it happens. I am going to do everything I can to minimize the downtime, but there will be some. I will give a longer explanation as to why later, but the short version is the datacenter I have hosted my dozen servers with for the last 15 years is closing down on short notice and I must move all my servers to a new datacenter... and while this website is personally important to me, the othe

  13. Ill turn 70 y/o next year and higher insurance cost so changing to an o is a priority. I just want to go to the PI and later one more trip to the states. I'll look in to this. Currently i pay 12,500 for the extension. No money in the bank and she takes care of the O-A insurance but i dont have a policy. Contrary to common belief the agents can be legal. I talk with friends and a conversation that comes up is if go tits up here where would we go? None of us want to go to the PI or Cambodia.Thailand is our home. So unfortunately immigration is still an active issue.

  18. The only way I know to get the A knocked off the visa is to leave the country without a valid re-entry permit. When you return to Thailand the original visa is no longer valid, thus allowing you to go the non-imm O route. As dumb luck would have it, that's what happened to me 12 years ago. Stupid me left the country thinking the expiration date on the O-A visa was enough to allow me back in again. To add to my stupidity I didn't realize I could jump through all the hoops myself to get the O visa and instead paid 20k to a "helper". But in the end my error turned out to be a blessing in dis

  19. I made the switch from little Fujis to used iPhones about then, more or less 2014/5. To this day you can get a fairly good (meaning battery still ok) iPhone 6s any day on eBay for notionally $100. Now that batteries can be replaced for more or less $20, just not much of a reason to bother with snap and go cameras any more.

  22. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to you all once again, and welcome to more lockdown lunacy, where we can only dream of the time when this is all over and we can return to those halcyon days of social distancing at minus 6 inches (or minus 2 inches if you’re Japanese.) In further pursuance of their disastrous Covid policy, Pattaya has decided to continue with the 9pm curfew and the alcohol ban in restaurants, at least until a decision is taken on whether the city can reopen in November. “Reopening” in this case would seem to involve the lucky visitors being under house arrest in t

  23. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to all of you who are still out there, and welcome to another month of Covid-induced vacuum. Hell’s teeth, when will all this crap be over so there’s something to write about again? Well imagine our surprise, Pattaya won’t be reopening to tourists on September 1 after all, not that anyone would have come anyway as all the hotels, bars, clubs and restaurants will still be closed by order of HRH King Covid XIX. Meanwhile, local officials have abandoned their plans to hold a piss up in a brewery as they couldn’t find anyone to organise it. Meanwhi

  24. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap once more, and welcome to another month of Covid, so there’s bugger all to write about but nobody gives a shit as they won’t be back in Pattaya anytime soon. Well, let’s give it a go anyway. Four Thai men have been arrested by police for stealing metal drain covers, which they later confessed to doing in order to buy drugs. Police are now searching for drug dealers who accept drain covers as payment for their merchandise. The men were also given urine tests, though it remains unclear how this helped to progress the investigation. A 24 year ol

  25. Greetings Monkeywatchers, core coon crap for taking the time to visit, and welcome to more dismal tales of Kung Flu City. Well, there’s been one or two minor changes in Pattaya this month. Like all the bars and clubs were shut down on April 9 by order of the local governor, who was allegedly described by one pundit as a “fucksplat” (what the hell does that mean?) Unsurprisingly, this has led to most of the hotels closing down as well. Happy days aren’t here again. According to the latest figures, Pattaya tourist numbers in January this year are down by 1% compared to the same time

  27. They don't want to.... I strongly believe they simply wish to push 'business' into the hands of Thai companies. You are fortunate if you carry International Insurance that is readily accepted and pays out wrt Thailand. Have you considered talking to an agent to see if they can 'get the A knocked off' your extension.... because it looks like the cost of the obligatory insurance is set to rise by a factor of maybe 7x!
