  1. I'm bumping this thread to wish everyone Ever wonder why we call a turkey a turkey? The answer goes back more than 600 years. In the 15th century, African birds called guinea fowl were exported to Britain by Turkish merchants of the Ottoman Empire. The birds were called Turkey cocks or hens and the name was eventually shortened to "turkeys" or "turkies." When English explorers reached North America in the 1500s and saw the bird we today call the wild turkey, they thought it was a relative of the (guinea fowl) "turkey" with which they were familiar. The name stuck. A guine
  2. Your question should be addressed to frostfire or one of the Mods. I'm a long-time member of Pattaya Talk, but I have no "official" standing. As far as I know, though, there's no minimum number of rep points required for advancement. I believe MM (RIP), the former owner of Pattaya Talk, required 20 posts to gain full membership, but I'm not sure if that still applies. MM put in place the membership requirements and reputation system to deal with problems that have largely disappeared. The major destructo-trolls no longer have any interest in the Pattaya boards and nowadays prefer to po
  3. @frostfire and @jacko I believe the limitations on the Upgrade group go back more than a decade to the days when some individuals, a few previously banned, would join Pattaya Talk for the sole purpose of voting up a certain member's posts at the maximum number of votes allowed per day. They would also vote down the posts of members they didn't like, especially the opponents of one hungry little fellow. Martin wanted to limit the ability of new members to give reputation votes until they proved they weren't just trolls trying to manipulate the reputation system. The main reason, though,
  4. Happy Birthday with a cherry on top! Evil
  5. @rainsberger A mod at P-A has acknowledged my message. They are now aware of your problem and are looking in to it. I have a feeling it might be related to the situation that forcebwithu noted in post #5 above. Evil
  6. I forwarded the OP's post to the admin and mods at Pattaya Addicts. Evil
  7. Hard-frying egg yolks does appear to be a Thai thing, possibly related to a fear of salmonella but mostly just a matter of taste. I have encountered a lot TGs who were totally shocked that farang ate eggs with runny yolks. I used to order pad krapao moo at least once a week at a favorite Thai hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but the cook absolutely refused to lightly fry the egg. Evil
  8. I know a lot of BMs are interested in breakfast deals. The mega breakfast at Nicky's for 195 baht looks to put more food (and calories) on the plate at a lower price than any other restaurant in Pattaya. The pic above is from a Twitter post. According to Nicky's FB page, there's also a "full English breakfast" for 99 baht. It's more food than most of us need in the morning. Both the mega breakfast and the full English include a choice of tea or coffee. They look to be proper English fry-ups! The Robin Hood Tavern in The Avenue shopping plaza also has s
  9. The Robin Hood Tavern also has regular specials and promotions:
  10. Since I'm not in Pattaya, I can't contribute any on-site reports about good farang food under 300 baht. However, inspired by checking a few websites, I decided to highlight some of the under-300 dishes at Nicky's Bar and Restaurant on Soi Buakhao and the Robin Hood Tavern in The Avenue shopping plaza. There's plenty of good stuff under 300 baht at Nicky's: Daily and weekly specials are even cheaper:
  11. I read on another board that the Pattaya Beer Garden will close on September 30. It was unclear whether it was a closure until "things get better" or a permanent closure. The source of the poster's info was a staff member at PBG. Perhaps Pattaya Pete can give a definitive answer. Evil
  12. To expand on my previous answer: Go to this Web site: https://ipleak.net It will show you what info is visible about your connection to the Net. When I connected today to the Net using TOR and NordVPN's Onion over VPN, the following results showed up. I am posting from the U.S.
  13. By total anonymity I mean that you are untraceable. There's no way anyone can discover the true IP address of your computer. However, that doesn't mean Web sites can't detect the fact you're using a VPN. There are methods for hiding use of a VPN, but they are pretty complicated. Dissidents in authoritarian countries like China and Iran, where use of a VPN is forbidden or considered incriminating, will go to such lengths. I suppose if you use a VPN and still want to connect to Web sites in the U.S. than also don't allow connections through VPNs, you can configure your computer in such
  14. I use Nord and have no complaints. For those who need or want total anonymity when searching the Net, Nord has advanced options like Double VPN and Onion Over VPN, plus a long list of countries to which you can connect to hide your ISP. Evil
