  1. OP, you could maybe try BTV, but I think it may come down if they have cables in your street. I think it may be similar to sophon, similar channels etc, but without the professionalism, lol. The movie ends and you see the guys computer desktop, watch while he moves the mouse around and selects another movie.
  2. Thank you for pointing that out. As most of these Pink ID threads end up with the usual bar stool wisdom that you cant travel or the ID isn't valid in other provinces etc. As you say, any travel restrictions apply "only" to migrant workers.
  3. If you look at pink ID, your name appears in Thai, so the passport translation is about getting an official translation of your name into Thai. You can usually use the translation of your name from marriage documents
  4. I just used Pink ID this morning for the DLT appointment app, you need a Thai ID number to use the app. The app wont take a passport/license number. Same with a 7/11 loyalty card, it would only take Thai ID number to sign up.
  5. You can get/renew a license with yellow book/Pink ID. ID number is then on your license instead of Passport number. It comes down to the document you originally used as ID, as to what appears on your license and what is the ongoing document for ID. Start with a passport, passport number is on licence and passport is used for subsequent renewals etc. Start with a Yellow/pink ID and the ID number appears on your license and is the ID used for subsequent renewals. Its a case of most people dont have a pink ID when they get initial license, but if they do it is accepted.
  6. Cat 5 uses 2 pairs (4 wires) , Cat5e uses 4 pairs (8 wires) Yes, the max speed of cat 5 is 100Mps with only 2 pair terminated (nobody has used 2 pair cable or only terminated 2 pairs for many years) So long as all 8 wires are terminated in the rj45 its the same wiring and will operate at gigabit over short distances were shielding crosstalk etc is not important. Cat5 4 wires, cat5e 8 wires, network wiring 101
  7. So long as all 4 pairs are terminated (any cat 5 cable you buy) a Cat5 patch cables will do Gigabit over a couple of metres, router to computer etc. A true cat5 cable only uses 2 pairs (some older ones only had 2 pairs terminated) but manufactures have been terminating all 4 pairs for years.
  8. Try as I may, I just cannot take seriously, an infidelity story involving a guy called Dong. Too many jokes, not enough time.
  9. I think its mainly some people with TOT internet are having problems
  10. Solution: I know a VPN works but not everyone has one and it slows things down. Another solution that's quick and easy is to change DNS server (not the one dished out by TOT etc) I have changed DNS in adaptor (not router) settings to use cloudflare DNS, Primary 1.1.1.1, Secondary 1.0.0.1 Working fine since lunchtime today.

  12. Its obvious the police are under resourced and cant always investigate these reports in a timely manner. We need to step up and help them out. I am willing to get out there a couple of times a week and investigate. I will even dress as a tourist.
  13. OP, if you are using transferwise, its not you doing an international transfer , its transferwise. The money will arrive in your account as a local Thai bank to Thai bank transfer. Transferwise are doing the international transfer. You do a local transfer in home country and receive a local transfer in Thailand. All international transfers need to be accounted for, there is usually a "reason" added to the transfer, (investment, salary, purchase etc) its a requirement of all central banks, the reason is put there by you, or the bank, or the private transfer company. There is never
