Re: Low internet speed issue

With the increased speed they also offer both 5G and 2.4 Mhz. If she is connected to 5G and her laptop isan older model it may not support 5G.

Re: Dual boot problem

Instead of dual boot give virtual machine like Virtualbox from Oracle. Its free and then you do not need to reboot to go from one system to the other.

Re: Is this racist and if so how?

I would not worry about it. There are always people searching for any reason to call someone a racist. If you were to mention you were going to buy a blackboard someone would determine that is racist. You just have to ignore those people.

Aliexpress

Is anyone buying from Aliexpress? If so, what are your delivery experiences. I recently bought a computer fan which they say was shipped 11 April. I have yet to receive it.

Do Not Buy a Phone from Lazada!!

I am sure there are some good vendors that sell via Lazada. But, how do you tell which is which? My daughter ordered a new phone from Lazada, a Samsung J7 Pro. After receiving it, the phone began to exhibit all sorts of weird behavior, flashing screen, etc. So, I suggested she upgrade the operating ...

Re: The COVID-19/Corona Virus Forum

Wrong! You do not need to file separately to get the SSI payment. Since you had your refund going to a bank you should have got it deposited to your account already. I filed joint and got mine over a week ago. Another poster similar to your situation said he had his already including extra for his c...

Re: Which paint to buy

I sourced the painters - man and wife team - based on recommendations found on this forum. We were all set to go before the lock down but then told them to hold off until after the lock down.

Re: Which paint to buy

Can you be a bit more specific Vince? On the web I see many varieties of Delux paint.
Remember, when it comes to paint or any type of home maintenance, not only do I know nothing, I don’t even suspect nothing. :-)

We have had the local handyman over a few times but nothing definitive found. I know in the US plumbers have leak detection equipment and can pinpoint a leak even if under the...

What are Essential Businesses

I am a bit confused by the Thai government's stay-at-home policy. I know they talk about what stores or businesses can remain open but what about things like construction, etc. Are these deemed essential businesses? Today, in my housing development, I saw a truck unload 5 or 6 young workers at a hou...

G-PADDY Android 7.1? Android 7 is an old operating system. Android 9 was released March 2018. Android 11 due out later this year. Guess they skipped 10.
Like most computers, what was state of the art yesterday is archaic today. :-)
