  1. Ports? You should be doing everything wirelessly. I barely even bother with my laptop. My Samsung Ultra 24 is more powerful than most PC's and with the Dex app you can use it on any big screen TV. Your phone is the keyboard and my 82" inch Samsung TV is the moniter. Kind of the same argument when VCR/cassette tape owners still wouldn't adopt CD's and DVD's.
  2. Russians, at the Pullman in Pattaya (Naklua). 10 in a row.,5 in a row,etc at 7:00 am. Not a soul there. They don't show up untill after 12:00. Haven't stayed there since. To many Russians for my sanity.
  3. He sounds nice enough. Over 9,000 posts would be labor intensive on a cell phone indeed.
  4. I don't know a soul, except companies or elderly who still use a desktop. However, if that's what you enjoy, more power to you. Perhaps have a friend show you there laptop. You'll see how much more convienant it is than an antiquated desktop.
  5. Desktop sales have been falling for years as people use laptops or high end cell phones. Both are more capable and convienant than your average grandma style desktop taking up space. "Total shipments of desktops and notebooks rose to 65.3 million units. Shipments of notebooks hit 51.6 million units, up 4% from 2022, while desktop shipments landed at 13.7 million units, declining 1%. For the full year 2023, PC shipments totaled 247 million units, marking a 13% drop compared to 2022."

  6. Not as bad as putting towels on prime seats/loungers by the pool at 7:00 in the morning. Reserving a seat at a food court sounds like a good idea. Looking for an empty table with a family loaded with food trays sounds like a hassle. I usually sit down and reserve the table while the wife and kids get all the food sorted. Luckily you were dining alone. Funny comment on saying, "oh, you forgot your bag, here you are".
  7. Sounds like a cyst, extremely painful in that area. I had that once and it became so painful that I had to go to emergency to have it lanced,drained,and stitched up. In that area you have to worry about sepsis or other infection. Perhaps get another opinion and price quote. 100,000 baht is definitely high IMO. Good luck and hopefully the cream improves you situation.

  9. "fleeing Windows-11...for Linux Desktop? Now!" Honestly I doubt many people use desktops anymore. Even sleek laptops are being replaced with smart phones that can do anything a desktop or laptop can do.
  10. That's good the left the useless and carcinogenic leaves for the masses and the "buds" left for the government mafia to profit from. Typical Thai leadership or lack of.
  11. Get a well,pump it into a 2000 liter or more tank. Before the large 2000 tank,have it filtered for sediment and then run through UV filter. Tank water should be ok. Have it pumped directly to your house. I'd just get bottled water for drinking. At least they chlorinate your water in Bangkok. Most everywhere else it's just directly pumped from the river or retention pond which are filthy. Dog,human,buffalo <deleted>,etc. we use the city water in Issan for watering the garden and treated well water for showering,toilet,dishes. Drinking and cooking is strictly bottled water.
  12. The best thing would be to ban all Russians. Dirtbags!
  13. Definitely going to be a problem with virtually no way of getting updated boosters for the last two years. Many vaccine doubters here, but for the people who follow the science and not loony conspiracy theories, a choice of getting vaccinated would be a nice option. Thailand makes it very difficult for private hospitals to aquire Covid vaccines/boosters. They have to go through the governments pharmacutical agency which takes a hefty cut.
  14. I don't think they do. A lot of people come to Thailand thinking it's cheap and easy going. They don't last long. I wonder what type of Visa they'll expect to get? That's another hurdle.
  15. That's important,especially for a couple raising a family!
