  1. A name makes killing it harder when you have to eat it.
  2. I planned my retirement on a "worst case" of £1 / ฿40. Never thought I'd see it though. Was doing OK lately until the wife's birthday - shiny shop time. ? I explained to her that it's really a form of saving and, when we get old(er) and need it, we can cash it in. Never seen a look of horror on her face like that. ?
  3. It'll be a nuisance, but we can't say it doesn't need doing. Just ban the coaches and one lane is plenty. ?
  4. Hope you speak arsehole, reports are that The Base is overrun by rude Chinese tourists.
  5. I've driven here, it's not that bad. As to an IDP. you'll have to get it in the UK, if you're here already. it's too late.
  6. Hand her the keys and see how fast her attitude changes. ?
  7. Pause it, no. But you CAN rewind up to an hour (even if you've just changed to that channel) then skip ads when watching - it's more of a "jump forward a minute at a time" than the sort of fast-forward with picture you're used to. Better than nothing though. Me, I only really watch sport & news live, with the time difference, most programs I want are on at bad times for me - and on catch-up, you DO have a pause.
  8. This one, yes came in a few days iirc. I believe there are UK versions, but I have no experience of those - no VPN needed with this, I don't know if you bought in the UK. One strange thing though, its UK Sky, but Southern Irish adverts. I'm guessing that's where they get the feed from. Weird though, seeing adverts you recognise, but with totally different accents. ?
  9. I use this; https://www.iviewhdthailand.com/ I can't record, but there's a 7-day catch up on most channels. You can load the service on your smart TV or computer, but personally, I use the Android box they sell, just link to your wifi and you're off. Seems pretty bulletproof.
  10. Found it. Firefox/Options/Language and Appearance/Advanced/ there's an option to allow sites to choose their own fonts, instead of using the ones I prefer. Unticking that gives me back black lettering. That'll do me until/unless there's a new skin that does the job better. Thanks forcebwithu for the line spacing advice. Thanks all.
  11. The font is fainter and doesn't display as well now. Increasing the zoom helps, but the font is definitely a lightish grey now - not so good for older eyes. Also, when I post, lines are double-spaced. I can't see anywhere in the user settings where I can alter it, am I missing something? Using Firefox on Windows 10 if that matters. Other forums haven't changed, so it is just a Talk thing. Thanks
  12. So Ron, gave up on finding a young, pretty one and settled for what you had.... oh wait, that was me! ? Congrats on nailing her down, it's embarrassingly obvious how much she cares for you. Never mind the age difference, she looks like a strong lass, she'll probably survive the wedding night. ?
  13. It seems unlikely that they would accept those, Immigration can't be expected to understand assorted documents from assorted countries, or to know which are genuine. Sorry.
  14. That machine on the beach, why isn't that going up & down from dawn to (say) 09:00 every day when the beach is empty? Cleaning the surface is all very well, but you have to keep doing it as the crap below works its way up. That would mean planning ahead I suppose, not a strong point here.
