Reputable Computer Tech....

I doubt if there is anything wrong with the netbook. You have confirmed that the network itself works correctly with the other hardware. A LAN wired connection and a wireless connection use two separate interfaces. Unlikely that both would go wrong at the same time. It is more likely that the netboo...

New Fixed Deposit Acc. for your 800K

I,m thinking maybe with all the funding that will be needed to cover the new governments promises, if they can keep them, Inflation may rocket and interest rates will go up accordingly so the % you are offered for different investments can be on a much bigger scale. On the other hand they may do th...

Work at home online opportunities?

Two articles that may help with your research. What you can earn depends on your own expertise and skills levels. Mechanical Turk run by Amazon is one of the leaders, but not all jobs are quite what they seem. Good jobs go quickly. It is the rubbish that hangs about. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/busine...

The front axle is supported by a jack, and looks like rusting where paintwork burnt off. pattern of burns from...

Any experience of the trade in bottles for recycling?

Has anyone had any experience of the trade in recycled plastic bottles? I know that every so often someone comes round and will buy the plastic bottles, and see people going through the bins to salvage waste. Now a family member has proposed that they will earn some money by going round buying plast...

Having bought these possibly worn out goods for a small price, I presume you then have to pay the Thai customs all the import taxes on the **new** price, as this is US government property brought in without tax payment??

The boot date problem and the language default problem have the same cause. Almost certainly a weak or faulty battery on the motherboard. This is a flat disc about 2cm diameter.

Re: Starting out in Thailand (Udon)

If you can work with the school to get a work permit and teacher licence that would be good - but I have an idea that they would need to pay you to do 20 hours over 4 days minimum to get that.
