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. Definitely some horrible DNS maintenance but that's more often some sites out, almost all OK, not the other way around.
  2. Can't explain your weird one-site access (browser cache, maybe??). But from now to Wednesday there are LOT of storms in the area, and EMP is a bitch with wireless. Rain will put out the wired circuits as well, by playing with the satellites.
  3. Well, that and your own large penis and hamsumness. And Tom Cruise really does go 300 mph on those motorcycles, as do the cameramen filming him. I saw it myself, there's no way they could fake that!
  4. You don't have to speculate. You can simply read the English translation of the immigration laws, with all schedules and sub-rules. In English: It has been translated by Thailand's best known international law firm. http://www.tillekeandgibbins.co.th/Publica...ation_order.pdf aka http://tinyurl.com/v3yju
  5. Thais do not buy "used houses". The exceptions are generally people who are far too poor to buy anything else and have to temporarily accept such a horrible thing. Most... well, many Thais are unable to wrap their minds around the concept of buying a home in which someone else has lived.
  6. You write that like it's a bad thing.
  7. Never seen such, and I've been around the torrents for a while. You don't see them anywhere online, really. I'm sure the thinking is that only Thais want them, and they cost 69 baht on CD in any mall. Same with the music. There is a tiny amount of Thai music in P2P, but table after table of karaoke and MP3s in the malls. My kids in the States always ask me for movies and especially the comedy shows.
  8. Actually the black helicopters do the monitoring, the programs just beam the information up to them. Alcoa secretly makes a counter-attack, cleverly covertly marketed under the generic trade name "aluminum foil". Folded correctly, placed atop the vertical human body, it will stop the rays. Sigh. How do I debunk thee? Let me count the ways: 1. Torrentspy doesn't HAVE downloads, it only has links to torrents, which are tiny little text files and as illegal as dihydrogen oxide. 2. Clients don't have .... Oh to hell with it. Never mind. It leaves more downloading bandwidth for
  9. "Got any ID?" asks the Alabama state trooper. Replies the redneck pick-up driver: "'bout what?"
  10. UTorrent is unbeatable. It's tiny, fast and you can put it on a USB stick, i.e. you don't install it. I believe the best search engine by fare is ISO Hunt: http://www.isohunt.com/ In my view the best presentation of the most-recent Torrents in reverse chronological order is at the very well done TorrentSpy http://www.torrentspy.com/ YMMV.
  11. -32 actually. Double entendre du jour: That's cold.
  12. I'm an American, I feel VERY strongly about 9/11 - and I can't see why you shouldn't sell/auction the flag for such a cause. I'd kind of like to know that it was going to a good home, that's about the only thing I can think of. Good luck. I may throw in a bid myself.
  13. This calculator is goofy. According to it I have to drink beer OR whiskey, not both, which indicates it was some cocktail-sipping, end-finger-stuck-out pussy who drew up the chart. I can only have one UBC, this priss says, but I have two of them. I don't pay any rent because I own my (large) house, but there's no way I can put that in. It asks me how many times I have companionship AND how many times I go diving - well, shit, muff diving is part of companionship, ain't it? You live in Thailand and you're supposed to keep track of clothing expenses? For a year? Jeez. Even if the T-
  14. I'm a sucker. I've eaten at Nang Nual for many years, downstairs and up top the hill both, Thai food, steaks, seafood and lots of combinations - two at a time and 36 people at one party. I've always been satisfied. Last Saturday on a whim, the old la.... my lovely wife and I hopped in and drove to Pattaya from Bangkok over the alleged "roads" and went up the hill where they have parking on Saturday night and ate one of the worst Pattaya meals in history. Paid the same as if it were a good meal, too. It doesn't take me four times to figure out bad cooking (and service, but they usually
  15. Make sure you didn't put that period (full stop) after the "com" part. I recently sent email to that address and it seems to have worked.
