  1. 3.23 rai of land ( 3 rai and 93 tarangwah) for sale on Pattanagan Road. 13.5 million baht. Call 087 6027327 for Thai or 089 8750487 for English if interested.
  2. These kids sound like they have it worked out already. Except for Howard, age 8, him I want to slap.
  3. Thanks for the review Ray. I went there once with the GF. Unfortunately, we looked at the ground floor inside the entrance and decided it looked dirty and dingy and we bailed out. I'll give it another try when I get back in a couple of weeks. You still in town in early June?
  4. 890 plus of course 60p. Bit disappointed with myself there.
  5. Been using it for a couple of years now (Windows version) and recommend it to everyone. It has become a standard on crew here.
  6. Please, please tell me that somebody photoshopped this ....
  7. The second biggest industry in Bangladesh, after brick making, is brick breaking. He probably just dumps them on a pile to be broken up. Since most of the country has no rocks, they bake and then bust up bricks for use as aggregate in concrete and for the roads. Everywhere I went there were great mounds of bricks with women sat on top with a hammer spending the whole day breaking bricks down into gravel sized pieces. Mighty feat on this guy's part though.
  8. Brilliant! Love the last one specially.
  9. I can vouch for that from personal experience.
  10. I think I just wet myself! Love Calvin & Hobbes.
  11. Had the Chicken Fried Steak sandwich there yesterday (well, delivered next door). Thought it was fantastic and I will be back for sure to try some of his other dishes. Didn't rate the coleslaw, but I just put that down to different tastes and won't bother with it in future. Must try the ribs!
  12. I didn't set the flag - don't know how I wound up with a Thai one since I'm not Thai. I do live in Thailand (not Pattaya) when I'm not at work. I couldn't care less about the kitchen; it is just a part of the space in the living room area. I use the fridge ... a lot. For the balcony, I'm usually out until 4 in the morning and sleep until 2 or 3 the next afternoon. As soon as I get up, I shower and go out - who cares about the view from the balcony? Or even if there is a balcony? I just like the big comfortable space I get, in the right location for me to access most everything I wa
  13. Great party! I'll try to make it in tonight for Manfred's birthday as well.
  14. Been in 3 times in the last week, just to catch the band. Great stuff.
  15. Interesting read. I'm staying at the Whitehouse Condotel right now and loving it! The staff are pleasant and helpful, the room is spacious and in good condition and I'm in love with the bathroom. View from the balcony is rubbish but I just draw the curtains. I do agree that the kitchen is a waste of space since there are no utensils, but I wasn't going to use it anyway when there are 3,000 places to get food within 500 metres of the front door. Great beds too! And since I'm not a greedy bugger I've never run up against the extra charge for more than one guest . Perhaps I'
  16. Sorry, been off line a few days. I'm going to assume a basic familiarity with Photoshop here. I'm using v8 by the way but you should be able to find what you need with earlier or later versions with a bit of hunting around. Step 1. Go to Image -> Mode and choose Lab Color Step 2. From your Channels palette, select a Step 3. Go to Filter -> Noise and choose Median. Adjust the settings to take the rough edges off (probably somewhere from 5 to 10 pixels). Step 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the b channel. Step 5. Select the lightness channel. Step 6. Go to Filter -&
  17. Good rooms upstairs - I often stay there. Huge rooms, a/c, TV & DVD player, and cheap!
  18. Have you tried this (free) program: http://www.neatimage.com/index.html?D69 ? It's fairly simple to use and the price is right. On the other hand, if you have and are familiar with Photoshop, there are some fairly easy things you can do to eliminate some of the grain without losing too much detail. Details to follow if you are interested.
  19. There are so many good looking girls in there at the moment that I've ended up buying the manager drinks instead ... and the bustard still won't let me pay bar for him! Seriously though, the last time I was in there must have been at least 30 girls in the bar, with quite a few good lookers among them. I have made a mental note of 2 or 3 numbers but won't be back until April so they should probably be posted on the useless information thread.
