Re: Fastest 'net installation in UT?

Have just signed up with 3BB for fibre to the house wifi connection - 200 mbps up/down for 590 B pm + VAT (total 632 B). This is for our new house in a village 25 kms from Udon. Quoted installation time of 5/6 days, but I won't be there until day 7. OK they say, see you then. Cable to be run 150 met...

Hi Parrot. I currently pay Dtac 650 baht/month for unlimited data. Interested to know what speed your wife's connection is limited at.

Re: John's budget build

I should expand on the morlam concert for those of you who are not familiar with the concept. The concert is a gift to the local community, most of whom don't get a formal invite but, on hearing the music, will come down to enjoy the performance and a modest amount of free drinks. You need a permit ...

Re: John's budget build

Yes, good point Maaka. And you are spot on as well RL Trader. In fact, these rooms do have cavity walls (as does most of the house) - masonry block externally and AAC block internally for the added insulation qualities. All of the electrics and plumbing come thru the cavity and are not visible. The ...

Re: John's budget build

Last weekend saw all of the power outlets fired up, and 90% of lighting in place. The tiler has been working during the week (in my absence), and should finish the last of the upstairs tiling this weekend. Plans for this weekend are some more electrics, and tiling the karaoke stage floor and the sta...

Re: John's budget build

Things have been really rocking along lately. Some work on the kitchen tiles. tn_IMG_20191214_145501.jpg This lot (tiles and adhesive) came to little over one tonne - straightened out the springs in the mighty Ford Ranger for about half an hour. tn_IMG_20191215_110456.jpg Air cons in the main bedroo...

Re: Sony's new ground-breaking technology

All said tongue in cheek of course. They refer to what is mostly termed PMPO (Peak Music Power Output), a vaguely defined term that most likely equates to what theoretically could be produced for two seconds before the internal power supply implodes. You won't find these type of wild claims on most ...

Sony's new ground-breaking technology

Well, Sony has invented new technology that has the potential to save the world. As a matter of fact, this piece of equipment uses only 70 Watts to produce an output of 1 kW. This will save burning huge amounts of fossil fuels. Click on the image to make it larger and clearer.

Re: Cambodia or Thailand

I have had a permanent house in Udon for around 11 years now, but for the past six years have commuted to work in Banngkok while building a house in my wife's village about 25 kms from Udon. You really were an "institution" in Udon Ken, and I am sorry we didn't get to catch up before your move. Life...

Re: John's budget build

Despite what this thread's title reads, I didn't really get down to budeting beyond the retaining wall (which includes the outer garage/laundry wall) and fill - that lot came in around 280K THB. I was using a Thai contractor back then, but after that experience I am now the builder. Trouble is that ...

Re: John's budget build

Agreed Niggly. But the worst case scenario for me is to replace some electrical wiring. My build is 100% concrete and steel. Not a stick of timber in the joint.
