I hope this does not insult anyone on this site. I hope the Thais really get their arses kicked and if they mess with Cambo they will. The Cambodians are really tough and no nonsense. The The Thais have stolen boundaries, relics and god knows what from Cambodia and Laos for ages.

Actually duties are very high. The top of the range Vigo 4x4 auto is 36k. Add horrendous insurance charges to that because there is only one insurer in Laos.

Netsky as has been mentioned has been around a long time. Try loggong into the Norton site. They have an on line program which will check to see if you have a virus. Certainly Netsky acts as you have been describing.

Hi BB,
Well after the downturn in the IT industry in Oz about 5 years ago, I decided to return to teaching, so that is what i am currently doing. At the moment I am the head of ICT at a state school here in Oz; thats why I thought teaching in Thailand was a viable option.
