  1. How many military coups has Thailand had since the Vietnam war? The current Thai government is akin the the government in Myanmar. Currently, I think you will find Vietnam is more stable than Thailand, and markets like stability. It's all history now, but if there was no Vietnam war, I would imagine Vietnam would be the biggest economy in South East Asia, except for maybe Singapore, and Thailand would be like Laos or Cambodia. As things stand, I think you will see Vietnam overtake Thailand in many aspects over the next 5 to 10 years and it has nothing to do with coronavirus.
  2. I am familiar on how a VPN works, but measuring the distance away from Australia is a new one for me. In theory, I suppose they could time a ping, but that would have to account for slow ISP's, traffic congestion etc. I would say it's more like IP address getting blacklisted. As for banks, I was under the believe the user starts an encrypted session with the bank's server. Similar to a VPN, but not actually a VPN, but I could be wrong about this.

    Just one of many articles on the first page of a Google search. It's now available in the US, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada and New Zealand, but was previously only available for US users. https://www.tomsguide.com/features/firefox-vpn

    I thought the Mozilla Firefox VPN only worked if you were in the USA.
  5. I agree. Is there a way to reset the monitor back to factory settings? If that doesn't work, I would be looking at a new HDMI cable, even just for testing purposes.
  6. It's my understanding a lot of the VPN IP addresses get blacklisted by these apps. You either have to try another VPN, or ask you VPN provider to refresh their IP addresses for the particular country you wish to access. This is something they will not do just for one customer. There would have to be several requests.
  7. Does this get around geo blocking? Could you PM me some details please?
  8. WiFi can be strange in some locations. You can get 1 bar of signal strength, move the modem 1 meter away and you get 3 or 4 bars of signal strength. You suggest a good idea to try the laptop on another WiFi signal to see if the problem is with the laptop, or the modem / ISP. Could also tether to his phone hot spot for this, or just go to cafe or bar.
  9. If a VPN is required to watch Foxtel Go direct from their website, and a VPN is also required to watch Foxtel Go through Kodi, what is the advantage of watching through Kodi?
  10. I would also run this program. https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10
  11. That's a good idea. I wish I had thought of that.
  12. Woke up this morning, booted up computer, and Currency Meter down again. Hopefully, just another temporary issue with Google Finance.
  13. I thought Microsoft support for Windows 7 ended in January.
  14. I had one of the brick type laptop chargers blow up one day. I was in a hotel room. It blew the fuse in the hotel room as well. The room smelt of melted plastic. I don't know if a part in the brick charger failed, like a capacitor, or I received a big surge down the line, but ever since then, I do not leave my laptop on charge without being home.
