  1. Instagram is similarly disabled. I think the most recent faux pas was on IG. Translate (Thai --> ENG) option on Twitter remains.
  2. Ah, OK. Sorry. Mod feel free to close this thread.
  3. Well when you keep the plan secret it's easy to say everything is going acording to plan. The supply, distrbution and administering of the vaccine seems "fluid", and various "authorities" from the tippy-top to rural doctors, seem to be singing a different tune.
  4. From a Richard Barrow tweet after after my private meeting with the Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand and senior executives on Friday afternoon Q. Can you transit in Bangkok? A. Yes, they have just received approval for this and the final details will be worked out soon. Basically there will be a dedicated terminal at Suvarnabhumi and a dedicated flight to Phuket.
  5. Translation, Thai-->Eng Disabled on FB/IG While there have been some mis-translations before, the most recent one has resulted in the ability to translate posts on FaceBook and Instagram, from Thai to English, to be disabled. No clue if an apology will work again? Within Chrome you can right-click and translate, but not as easy as translate all comments, for example.
  6. The project is a joint venture between Prof Kiat Ruxrungtham from the Center of Excellence in Vaccine Research Center and Development (ChulaVRC) and Professor Drew Weissman from the University of Pennsylvania. The vaccine will use mRNA technology to trigger an immune response against Covid-19, similar to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna shots. https://www.chula.ac.th/en/clipping/47302/
  7. And yet, a few foreigners can't register on intervac for a vaccination.
  8. But one farang can't register on intervac. May we have your registration system please. Keep the sinopharm.
  9. 19 baht plus VAT per minute. If you use WiFi Calling: Free. Consider installing and registering... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ais.mimo.eservice https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.th.mimotech
  10. It gets worse... Richard Barrow @RichardBarrow Red circleURGENT WARNING: If you are using the http://thailandintervac.com website to register for a vaccine appointment, please be aware ALL of your personal details are freely available. In the sample below, if I click on “edit” I can see all of their registration information #Thailand
  11. You answered your own question... The Department of State does not provide direct medical care, including vaccinations, to private U.S. citizens abroad. We are committed to providing all possible consular assistance to U.S. citizens in need overseas, including by providing information on local medical resources when appropriate. Please follow host country developments and guidelines for COVID-19 vaccination. https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/covid-19-information/ I think our only hope is that the U.S. government don
  12. "Technical Difficulties"? "Gov. Asawin said there might be "technical difficulties" with the supplier that led to shortage. Aswin said those who have their appointments delayed will be prioritized once the vaccines arrived. Bangkok has received 500K doses from the health ministry, 350K of which are AstraZeneca and 150K are Sinovac. Almost all of them have already been used up, he said."
  13. Please be advised that the reservation system for the vaccination appointment is being updated. You cannot make a reservation for a certain amount of time. We have to apologize for all the inconvenience.
  14. As this is part of the "Consitution", it would need to be ammended, a process which is still a bit undefined. The Constitution was changed after a public referendum, but maybe best not to look under that rock? The first step woud, I assume, require said Senators to vote for an ammendment to eliminate their seat on the gravy train. Can't see that happening, ever. https://thethaiger.com/hot-news/politics/deputy-pm-2-ways-to-amend-constitution
  15. I never ever believe anything the regime announces. Does anyone? We simply read between the lines, and interpret what is said and left unsaid. In the case of vaccine numbers, it would depend on what the number is - assuming it is revealed. Based on the the information available over the weekend, it should be closer to 50,000 today. But could be 10,000, or 90,000. But very broadly speaking I do trust the numbers announced since February, if only as they have not exceeded the number of vaccines said to have been imported/domestic delivered.
  16. Nong Prue, district encompasses Suvarnabhumi Bangkok International Airport... Cheap at 92,000 each. https://www.newsdirectory3.com/the-prime-minister-of-nong-prue-subdistrict-administrative-organization-revealed-the-origin-of-the-planes-light-pole-explain-that-the-budget-is-less-than-a-hundred-thousand-only-92000-baht-per-tr/
  17. Smart move to make this latest consitution "idiot-proof". Twentieth time's a charm. PM does not have to be a member of parliament. Handy isn't it.
  18. Note that the UM SIM comes with one month free (mine did), but it may take more than one month to get delivered from the U.S to Thailand. So you, or your activating partner, should probably add $20 (enough for another six months) at activation. WiFi Talk & Text can be activated from the web dashboard (under "My Account"). Assume it can be activated from the app as well, though not sure. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uvnv.ultramobile
  19. I called at 18:00 Bangkok time, so 07:00 EDT. 2 - 4 minute wait stated, ended up being 15 minutes. CSR took 90 minutes, but problem resolved. You should monitor the status of your return at Where's My Refund. https://www.irs.gov/refunds https://sa.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp I eFiled on Mar 5, claimed Stim #1 ($1,200m check never delivered, I made several attempts to receive this payment) as Recovery Rebate Credit, alog with another ~ $2,500 in overpaid taxes.

  20. Watched this yesterday. Heard the buzz, definitely worthy. Much more than a revenge movie. 9/10.
