Re: Photos from an old hard drive ? Where to go

A usb to sata ide adaptor such as linked below can be used even if there is a fault preventing the hdd from being recognised as an added drive. Simply plug in to a usb port. It has it's own power supply and a host of adaptor plugs. Saved me a lot of bother on a few occasions. https://www.ebay.com.au...

If a word doc or docx comes through my email at outlook, I simply right click and a drop down appears with "Preview or Download or Save to One Drive".

Re: radio stations ban mike jackson tunes

I just find it interesting to see the reactions of people in discussions such as this.
Shows their general attitude to many things in everyday life and confirms suspicion on their what they are really like deep down.
Makes one think "don't turn your back on that one".

Excellent Farang quotes

Just noticed this in a discussion around Thai ID but could be applied to almost anything. "When it comes to dealing with officialdom here, whomever you are dealing with, determines what the law is at that time. It may be different tomorrow or it may be different today if dealing with a different off...

Re: radio stations ban mike jackson tunes

Michael Jackson was never found guilty for these crimes I believe so if that is the case he was and is paying a price for something he may not have done. Innocent until proven guilty? I know that I don't know what he did. The snowflake epidemic we have in the west is out of control and sanity has g...

Re: Low Budget Village Build For In-Laws

I'd say you were just plain lucky that none of the dwelling was affected. I've seen blows like this take out one house and leave the one right next to it unscathed. Looking at the dwelling roof I wouldn't class it as a rating that would supersede that which moved a container 10 ft sideways. Good to ...

Re: Air conditioning

I'm not sure if the inverter units are a good idea or not. More money and more problems? Definitely more in the electronics but electronics as a whole these days for the most part, appear to be fairly reliable.

I think it is about time the brakes came on with a lot of these so called "journalists". There was an interview last night where a female jurno couldn't wait to "tweet" what a lawyer had to say. Freely admitted she was stormed with questions outside the court if this report was true. I always though...

As a side note, We had a cobra problem. Killed three of them within about five months. I did a serious hunt to see if I could possibly find somewhere where they could be coming from. Beside the house, I found a hole that was about 4 inches in diameter. I stuck the hose in it and turned on the water...
