  1. I have a TOT internet connection at my condo on which I run my laptop and also a TV set top box for watching sport etc. Over the past few months I've had to complain to TOT about slow loading pages on my laptop and TV programmes freezing. This has been getting worse lately and after viewing a thread on another forum and talking to the provider of my set top box who says he has many complaining customers, about bad TOT connection in the Jomtien area, I decided to call 1100 which is TOT's help line. They got a technician to call me and I knew who he was from previous interactions. He speaks very good English and is helpful. I pressed him very hard and eventually he admitted that there was a problem in the Jomtien area and that he had several times reported it to his boss at Pattaya TOT. He says his boss will not do anything about the problem. So just a heads up for people using TOT in the Jomtien area and not getting a good service. I've since reported it to the 1100 help line again today and the service rep told me he will make a report to his bosses in Head Office. I'm hoping that their head office will sit up and take notice of this and get the lazy, incompetent manager at Pattaya TOT to get off his ass and do something about it. If anybody else has a similar problem, please contact TOT on 1100. The more people who complain the better it MAY get.
  2. Right now I'm sat in a restaurant next to an ignorant farang who's playing youtube or such like at a volume every customer can hear in German language. Waitress too polite to tell him to switch it off. Usually it's the Russians who do this.
  3. It seems that Grab food (or other) deliveries are getting more and more popular. This is now causing a problem on the roads. Driving in the Pattaya area I am constantly "buzzed" by Grab motorbike drivers who are always in a hurry to get their deliveries to the customer. Surely it's only a matter of time before there's a serious accident caused by these morons. Hopefully the police will realize that there's a problem and put the brakes on.
  4. Among a plethora of my pet peeves are 1) farangs who insist on saying "soya" instead of "soi". 2) farangs who insist on saying JoNtieM instead of "JoMtieN" 3) Thais who are totally ignorant of their own personal space. 4) Thais who always park a motorbike across an entrance or in a gap where they are blocking passage for pedestrians.
  5. I have a FCD account with Bangkok Bank in Jomtien and also a FCD account with Siam Commercial Bank in Jomtien. Both are GBP accounts. The Bangkok Bank account took about a week to get opened but the SCB account was opened immediately for me. I am certainly able to use the funds therein to qualify for my retirement extension.
  6. Jeez!! Do you really expect readers to comprehend that post?
  7. I had been using AdBlock Plus on thaivisa.com (as I do also on this site), and got totally p'd off after I had to switch it off and the ads were loading so slowly that the web pages were jumping about, and almost unreadable. After a fair bit of research I found a way to put a custom filter code in AdBlock plus and for me now the ads aren't loading and I can read the website comfortably. Unfortunately the person who gave me the code swore me to secrecy because he feared both he and I getting banned from thaivisa. (Yes, unclebuck, the mods are a bunch of morons/pussies). Maybe Google searching might unmask the correct code to input on AdBlock. Edit...Unclebuck, if you call me I can give you the code and tell you how to input it if you like.
  8. Maybe they'll stop off in BKK on this route soon. Be good for the Brits here.
  9. I saw a dog leg on the golf course. Maybe that's what happens to them.

    internet

    It's a good idea to ask your prospective neighbours which internet Company they use and are they happy with the service. Different areas may vary. Then take a trip to your chosen provider's office and ask about packages to suit your circumstances.
  11. Does anybody know where to find live streaming of the Australian Big Bash League. I have an android TV box but cannot find an app which shows it.
  12. Thaivisa has just lost me as a member. First, the stupid adblock pop up, and now thaivisa radio 2 isn't working via the internet once again. Pity, because I used to read the forums every morning whilst listening to their radio streaming. I've now joined teakdoor.com for all my reading and will use 103FM for my radio streaming. Their moderators seem to think they are Gods almighty, but they are obviously little Hitlers hiding behind their computer screens.
  13. Thanks for that,forcebewithu. I have just watched the video. However, it doesn't address the issue of a housemaster who ,like me now, goes abroad on holiday, then returns to his rented condo. That is, unless, as stated at the beginning of the video, the housemaster is already registered by way of his last 90 day report. Am I correct with that, and do I therefore assume that I don't need to report to immi on my return?
