Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. Yup, our plugins were turned off, and at least one of them are out of date. I did not want to turn them on while I was tired in case they broke something. Will get them back on today. Also, just got a quote of $250 for a fully customized theme with unlimited changes for a week. So I might just do that. Ill post a poll later asking for color suggestions.
  2. Cheers for that. Sometime today I will actually take a minute and look in to it. And start working on a new theme.... Or maybe ill just hire someone to do a better one this time. If this thing didn't broadside my ass I would have made screenshots etc to "save" what I could of the theme. Live and learn lol.
  3. Ya that was tongue in cheek. It was about 1.5 days. Almost 2 days.
  4. Hi Guys. A couple of you early birds might have noticed that the site was down for 3 or 4 minutes.... So... I am going to give a nice long explanation on what happened later... after I get some sleep. It took me almost 2 days of full time work with almost no sleep at all to get this fixed. In short just so you guys don't go crazy with the speculation, it was a catastrophic failure of invision's auto upgrade script along with my dumb ass not seeing that there was an error message that cancelled the backup I took just before I hit the upgrade button. So ya. That happened.
  5. Ok, ill check and see what that button actually does later tonight... not sure where it gets its data... but its not all moderators 🙂
  6. That is not correct. Not sure where you got that list... our mods are listed there, but other non-mods are as well. As of right now we have 6 mods plus myself.
  7. Yup, in the freezers at Friendship. I have also seen it at Villa market, but not as frequently. I have always found it at friendship when I needed it.
  8. Hi grin, Not going to comment on the substance of your post, but if you want to get out of moderation (and see all of the forums!), please click the link at the top of your screen about verifying your account and go thru that process. Will make your posts show up faster, and make things easier for the mods 🙂 Frosty
  9. Agreed. Even in aircon breathing is .... maybe not difficult, but noticeably more difficult with a mask on. Its doable, especially in public and its totally needed in these times, but lying about it helps nobody. I use washable and re-usable masks tho... so I do not bin them. Just put them in the wash with everything else. Not as good as a N95 maybe, but a lot cheaper and almost as good - at least for here in Thailand where covid is suppressed for the time being. But ya, once you sneeze in to it, there is no more wearing that one lol. Nasty. lol.
  10. Not excusing the behavior by any means as it is very rude at the least... but he might have severe allergies. I have really fucked up allergies, and on bad days wearing a mask is like torture, especially if sneezing. And sneezing in to the mask would pretty much ruin it. Again, not excusing him - he should have just sneezed in to the mask and then put on a new one - thats what I do. But you can only carry so many of the damn things.
  11. I tried editing this so that the video would show instead of the link, but apparently IPB doesn't like that link. But it is a good and safe link, so I'll just leave it. Welcome to the board Manmohan. You might want to follow the directions for verifying your account by clicking on the menu item above and following those directions so that your posts are not moderated. Frosty
  12. Ok guys, This change has been made and completed... there was a good 12 hour window where emails were not going out. I am not going to have the system re-send those emails since almost all of them were just new post notifications. Looking back thru the logs, it appears that about half of the emails our system was trying to send out were blocked because we were over the limit of that other service... so we should see a much better result now being on our own server. If anyone sees any email related issues from here out, please let me know. Frosty
  13. Ok guys, So since the board has been upgraded I have been using a 3rd party email service called SendGrid. Its free, but its limited to 100 emails per day... and while I don't fully understand their limits since it has let us go up to 120% sometimes and sometimes it doesn't... its been a bit of a pain overall because we go over 100 emails 9 days out of 10, resulting in many emails not going out - including "forgot password" and other important emails. The underlying issue is that email is very complicated to set up properly, and I am not a linux expert... e.g. I was not confident en
  14. Hi guys. Just a quick note to let you know that there will be some changes to the board email notifications system coming in the next 48 hours and that starting tomorrow your thread notifications may be missing or delayed for up to 24 hours. Hopefully just a matter of minutes but it may be longer. I'll post a longer explanation of what I did and why tomorrow. Frosty Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. Hi Guys, So earlier today I took the server down for normal maintenance (installing updates) as I do once every 3 months. Since my last update in November (ya ya ya I know, but come on... things have been fucked up. So I'm a little late!), one of this servers 2 power supplies has stopped communicating with my control suite. That probably means that the power supply has failed. I have redundant everything on my servers, so it didn't just die... but that power supply will need to be replaced, which unfortunately cannot be done while the server is turned on. I have asked my data center to se
  16. Server is back up and running. Sorry about that guys.
  17. HI Guys, I am about to reboot the server hosting this website. Sorry I did not give more notice... I am doing my bi-yearly maintenance and didn't notice this was the server housing Ptalk. Its ready for the reboot now, so im afraid most of you won't see this message until after the server is back up from its downtime. I expect downtime to be less than 30 minutes, but more likely just 5-10.
  18. Hi Guys, A comment was made by Teelak earlier today about the state of the board and the number of COVID and Political posts going up on it right now. This is a really hard topic to police in any real way for a couple reasons - first because COVID is a very important subject and has a very huge impact on all of our lives and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Its a health matter, and a science matter... and in a perfect world it would NOT be a political matter. But it has been hijacked by politicians around the world and made in to a political matter. I
  19. On it. Give me 10 minutes. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  20. Awesome. Thought as much. Thanks. This topic can be ignored 🙂
  21. Jacko can you do me a favor? Click on the little lock up on the address bar, then click on Certificate and then tell me what it says for VALID FROM... looking for the second date. It should be May 28... but I strongly suspect my antivirus is hijacking the certificate and showing a cached copy.
  22. Just warning you guys... it appears as if the new SSL certificate I just installed may not be working. Problem is... it should be. And I do not fully understand why its showing an expiration date of tomorrow, since the files that do expire tomorrow were deleted as part of the install process, and the server has even been rebooted since then... so I am hoping that it cycles over once the expiration hits? if not, it will go down temporarily until I can fix it. If that just happens to happen ~12 hours from now, the downtime may be a few hours. I will be at a concert and inaccessible.
  23. Good idea, but did not work. Killed my cookies, relogged in and its still broken for me. Waiting for word from support.
