Re: driving licence for rented vehicles

Hello Rick and welcome Just had a look at Lek Car Rentals homepage. They require a valid international licence or a thai licence. As for renting a motorbike, all you need is your passport. But remember that everything is all smiles until you have an accident. Just to cover my six, I bring drivers li...

Re: How to download movies

Quite a list you got there maxeboy. Das Boot is one of my favorite movies of all times. Is that what you got in your private library or what you recommend?

Re: How to download movies

Thank you all for your advice.
Now I hope that finally I can find some old gems. But first I`ll try and download the Milennium Trilogy.
Just checked and download speed is 3,77 Mbit/sec.

How old are you?

When meeting thai people for the first time, I often get the question, how old are you? at an early stage. After telling my age, the response is usually that my new friend thought I was 5 to 15 years younger. While in other asian countries, people are usually spot on, give or take a year or two. It ...

Re: Books

Yes, Mr Nice is a great book. Howard Marks lets us tag along on his dope smuggling mission. From England to Pakistan, Thailand, Ireland, Spain and America. One of those book you cant put down.
It`s 3-4 years since I read it, but now I feel like reading it again

Re: Another e-mail scam?

Heard about this scam some 4 months ago, so it`s obviously been going on for some time. One would think that WU are well aware of it. I also got the advice to check before sending any money.
I can`t think of any friend that would ask me for that amount of money just to get by.

Re: ulrtasonic gecko repeller

As I understand, thais think that geckos are chook dee for the house. Also hearing a gecko croak seven times is lucky for the ones who hear it. Start couting :D
Personally, I don`t understand anyone who wants to kill these animals. They are harmless.

The reality is, 3-4000 Bt rooms are not available. They are reserved for hospital staff. 5000 Bt are also hard to get, especially if you need a room quickly. 6000 Bt and up is more feasible for AEK Udon.

Ugly Brits again. Ironically, they're the ones constantly droning on about proper this and proper that and being civilized. The concept of hypocrisy completely escapes them.

Statto, just want to say you are doing a great job.

Re: Air Conditioner Sizing

A unit with inverter continuously adopts the rotation speed of the compressor to the actual need for cold air in the room. this means it never uses more energy than necessary to cool a room, the temperature gets more even, and the compressor makes less starts and stops, compared with the on / off ty...

Re: Air Conditioner Sizing

If it`s called inverter, your unit can produce warm air as well as cold air. Have one of those myself and it`s called inverter, not air conditioner.

LDB, would you like to elaborate a little ? How much does your personal lifestyle affect this figure? And how big a part do your wife`s immediate family get?
