Sourcing a few blank recordable DVDs

I haven't bought a DVD of any description for more than ten years. However, I have recently found the need to buy a couple (few) of blank recordable DVDs. My search so far has been unsuccesful. Now I don't want to attract 'Why would you want to ... when ...' posts. If that is your thinking, start yo...

Re: John's budget build

Hi Pipoz Hoping to have the external windows and doors in, and the ceiling up by the first week in May. Probably move some furniture in during July. However, I will be commuting to/from BKK for perhaps another 18 months, so will still have furniture in both BKK and Udon until that time. For instance...

Re: John's budget build

And in the meantime, the missus has been quitely going about putting things together for the new house. Today one of her best friends left Udon with her husband and newborn baby to start a new life in Norway. We are storing quite a lot of stuff for them, but have benefitted by buying this two peice ...

Re: John's budget build

Back in Udon on the building site for seven weeks, the first of which has just finished. The rear wall is now 100% complete and 60% rendered, and the north wall 80% complete. Here are some photo updates. In the southwest corner, where the sun will come from during the late afternoon for around eight...

Re: Why low foreign currency values

The OP spoke of the strength of the THB, but the thread has recently been discussing the GBP and Brexit. Let's get it back on track and discuss the strength of the THB and all currencies. Some currencies (the CNY in particular) are totally managed and do not reflect day to day market variations, alt...

No, for sure, Oz pensions are paid direct from the Reserve Bank of Australia by SWIFT wire transfer to the nominated Thai bank account.

Re: Latest news release from Pattaya Immigration - Bad news for retirees, some better news for married folk

One of the problems that arise here is that it is easy enough to demonstrate the regular pension bank deposits in one's own country, but not so easy to demonstrate what such payments were worth in Thai baht at the time the payment was made. This has been recognised by Thai Immigration and hence the ...

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

'Saying I built a house for 300K doesn't exactly earn one bragging rights! As I have said before, I know very little (although a lot more now) about home construction. I'm proud that the house stood up to the mini-tornado that demolished my other structure. I no longer have to worry about my in-laws...

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

Pawpaws were popular in Queensland backyards, and when they becacme too tall to easily pick the fruit, we would cut them off at about the one metre mark and place a tin can over the stump (this was to prevent rain rotting the hollow trunk). Several new branches would spring up, and we would braek so...

Re: How to have Wi-Fi without using Huawei

This thread is becoming far too heated. But I will say that I have a brilliant Huawei smartphone using a Google (US) sponsored operating system. And my 3BB wifi router is also Huawei, and it performs great as well. I, unlike the OP's situation, do not have any issues with this whatsoever. My traffic...

"Three points of contact at all times, right?"
Takes me back to the days of Army Signals exercises - three points of contact. Two feet in mud or a wet floor, a battery bank, and the third point of contact? The urine trough of course. Just enough for a serious tingle, no heart arracks or sterilization.

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

Wow. That was some storm. The western suburbs of Udon copped it, and I am guessing that you may be that way. Barney's place is NW - how did you fare Barney?
BTW, the 3" thick insulation batts in silver plastic that I am using are 180 THB for 60 cm X 4 M.

Are you implying that income derived in Thailand cannot be used to meet the income requirements?

Re: Latest news release from Pattaya Immigration - Bad news for retirees, some better news for married folk

As you say the information was posted here earlier, but the 400K all year round was news to me, and posting it again might assist some who, like me, missed it first time around. I have never heard of an extension granted for someone with a recently deceased spouse - this seems so new that even Patta...

If you do a Google Image search for 'Hay Street, Kalgoorlie' you will get the idea quickly. Yes, it and many other premises in Hay Street Kalgoorlie were/are establishments of ill repute (this site won't allow the use of a particular word beginning with b and ending in el).
