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. Easy R-Con, slow going open sewer project. They are certainly taking their sweet time completing this project. On the 14th I snapped a pic of concrete forms going in on the rear half. Yesterday I noticed a cement truck on site, so a little more than a week to get around to the cement pour. Today, not exactly a beehive of activity.
  2. Beach Rd palm trees are getting wrapped in decorative LED strip lighting.  Excavators onsite repairing damage from Wednesday morning's storm. They better not go too far as the next storm is on the horizon.
  3. Easy R-Con open sewer concrete forms going in.
  4. Council estates are British public housing. I lived in Nirum for 2 1/2 years. Only reason I moved was I wanted something with move living space, but for those that are happy with smaller living space and low rent prices Nirun is a fine choice. And as for the comment "I would be looking over my shoulder constantly at 2am for sure", I call BS on that. Never once felt threatened walking around Nirun no matter what the time of day.
  5. There's a big project underway to move the overhead electric underground. https://news.lovepattayathailand.com/local/work-begin-burying-electrical-cables-pattaya-february-19/ When they start work on Buakhao it's really going to make a mess of the traffic on that soi. Hopefully they do the smart thing and make Buakhao one way until the work is done. Better still, leave it one way after the project is done.
  6. Easy R-Con open sewer progress as of this morning. 2nd Rd work to move overhead cables underground. Still working on the footings at the construction site on 3rd Rd near Klang. No word on what's going in at the now closed M-Club, but they're doing a lot of work on the site.
  7. Work continues on the Easy R-Con open sewer. Looks like they're doing this in stages. Section closest to Buakhao is now filled in and now they've dug out the next section.
  8. I like adventure, but think I would give this one a miss.
  9. ^^^ I'll have to give the Bosch series a look. But what I'd really like to know, how was the Waffles & Fried Chicken?
  10. Looks like they're finally getting around to backfilling the open sewer. Assuming this is an access shaft to the below ground storm water line, why is it full of water. We haven't had rain for over a week, so I would expect the storm water line to have a minimum amount of water in it. Certainly not this much.
  11. I used Nam's Taxi Service last month and can confirm the rates on her site, while a year old, are correct. Price includes tolls. Highly recommend Nam's service.
  12. More to do with higher than anticipated levels of stress at bolt and rivet holes. Window shape misconception[edit] The accident report's use of the word "window" when referring to the Automatic Direction Finding (ADF) aerial cutout panel[121] has led to a common belief that the Comet 1's accidents were the result of its having square passenger windows. In fact, Comet 1's cabin windows were very similar in shape, with similar corner radii, to those of the Boeing 377 and Douglas DC-7,[122] both of which were pressurised aircraft. The windows in Northwest Airlines' B-377 were in fact larger and notably more rectangular[123] than those of the Comet 1. While stresses in the area of the passenger windows were significantly higher than de Havilland had calculated, nowhere in the accident report is it claimed that the fatigue failure of the Comet fuselage occurred was a result of the shape of the passenger windows, but instead from excessively high localised stress at bolt and rivet holes, for which insufficient reinforcing (and therefore structural load distribution) existed.[citation needed] The report found that it was a combination of factors, as well as incomplete contemporary knowledge of the effects of metal fatigue, that led to the production of a fuselage that was not sufficiently strong, and for which the distribution of stress was not properly understood.[citation needed] Response[edit] In responding to the report de Havilland stated: "Now that the danger of high level fatigue in pressure cabins has been generally appreciated, de Havillands will take adequate measures to deal with this problem. To this end we propose to use thicker gauge materials in the pressure cabin area and to strengthen and redesign windows and cut outs and so lower the general stress to a level at which local stress concentrations either at rivets and bolt holes or as such may occur by reason of cracks caused accidentally during manufacture or subsequently, will not constitute a danger."[124] The Cohen inquiry closed on 24 November 1954, having "found that the basic design of the Comet was sound",[111] and made no observations or recommendations regarding the shape of the windows. De Havilland nonetheless began a refit programme to strengthen the fuselage and wing structure, employing thicker gauge skin and replacing the square windows and panels with rounded versions.[110] The fuselage escape hatch cut-outs retained their rectangular shape.[125] Following the Comet enquiry, aircraft were designed to 'Fail safe' or 'Safe Life' standards,[126] however several subsequent catastrophic fatigue failures, such as Aloha 243 have occurred.[127] In June 1956 some more wreckage from G-ALYP was accidentally trawled up from an area about 15 miles south of where the original wreckage had been found. This wreckage was from the starboard side of the cabin just above the three front windows. Subsequent examination at Farnborough suggested that the primary failure was probably near to this area rather than at the rear automatic direction finding window on the roof of the cabin as had been previously thought. These findings were kept secret until the details were published in 2015.[128] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Havilland_Comet The link below has a very good analysis of the inflight breakups the Comet suffered. Also interesting is how they originally used water instead of air to conduct pressure tests. That led to underestimating the real world effect of repeated pressurization cycles on the airframe. http://aerossurance.com/safety-management/comet-misconceptions/
  13. I remember too MM posting about driving himself to the hospital while having a heart attack. Found the post. Hope all goes well for you @midlifecrisis.
  14. Looks like Tree Town is getting another row of bars or shops.
  15. The concrete pad across from soi 13/1 has a definite tilt to it now. Seaside edge that was once even with the drain channel has now sunk a good 10cm.
