Seedy, I agree with Bill above. In practice this forum covers various items relevant to Nakhon Sawan and Kamphaeng Phet and nearby areas. As far as I know it is the only forum that covers these

But then many of us would not know what is going on in the area. Just because it says Nakhon Sawan news does not only mean Nakhon Sawan. From Wikipedia Nakhon Sawan (Thai: นครสวรรค์) is one of the

Mine's actually 21 years old.  I was looking at new Pajero  Sports four years ago ($,$$$,$$$) before my wife died but I really don't see the need now .  It's actually in good condition with over 500,0

Received 23 arrival pictures todAy from the Container Paking CO. to show the condition that it was in when received. The container is due to arrive tomorrow to be packed and delivered to the rail yard on the 12th to make the rail cut for transport to the port. Beynd that I don't have a schedule but will be busy putting together an assembly plan after i receive the dis-assembly pics next week.

I don't think that I "go off" every few minutes, my power does, but I do go off occasionally. I rigged an analog voltmeter to a standard electrical plug and when the lights start dimming I can watch the power flucuate from 220vac to 150vac and sometimes below. Enought to crash my computer and the stereo and I keep forgetting to buy a UPS as it's not a problem when I'm shopping. There's only one transformer for the whole village but there are no heavy loads, I suspect that the problem lies with the gravel pit about 2km away that uses three phase and the heavy equipment loads the phase that the village transformer is connected to. It always happens during the day during the week. I tried to explain the problem to PEA but it never haappens when they are in the aresa and trying to get them to chage the input phase to the village transformer isn't working.

There is an "ignore" option to ignore AOP but I don't have a clue how it works. Have a nice day.

Only hope it's better than Ikea's plans.

I didn't mean you went off I was referring to your Comp: that you seem in the past to have trouble with.

As they have removed one of my posts most peep's wont know what we are talking about.

Don't know what caused my Comp to go off line couldn't get Int: Explorer or Chrome, checked with TOT and they did a check and said everything their end was fine TIT??? but after some faffing about taking several hour's now seems Ok, fingers crossed.

Don't have a problem with power were I am thank Buddha so it wasn't that.

Best of luck with your new arrival.

H/M.

Thank for the usual sports update H/P alas I don't do Snooker but I'm sure other will fine it interesting. Now if you had told me K.P.P football team had won a game now that would have been a turn up for the book's.

Now you're comparing me to Ihea, remember I have a Davey Crocket hat and I'm a degreed electrical engineer and actually have experience in the modification of aircraft structure and electrical interface for adding aftermarket entertainment systems, ie. seat back and arm rest video systems. I don't see how my planning can go wrong. When it's finished and the key is turned, the worst that could happpen is my TV will turn on and the wheels will fall off. The only consequence will be more planning and additional cases of beer.I

I use fire fox but occasionally it futzzes up and won't let me do some things so I switch to Chriome and everything is Okay. My meter is plugged into my computer electrical outlet right now and it's a solid 220vac, but a few minutes ago it was down to 170vac. It's like some big unit, maybe a pump (definitely not mine), is switching on and off every 15 - 20 seconds!

I once had a post removed by a MOD and got peeved so I sent him a PM and told him to put his head back in the sand where it belonged, maybe in not those nice of words and was banned from posting for either 1 or 2 days, so PMs arent private either!

Billd766,

Wasn't directed at you, I know that you don't live in a city. It's just that everybody from the UK complains continuosly about everything, "it's not like home". I can't get this, I can't get that, the sausage casings at Macro are sh*t, etc. etc. Try getting Som Tom Poo Pa La in Chester, England!! The continual bashing of how life is so unacceptable here gets old after a while.

Ace of Pop's answer: "I suppose leaving anywhere in America is an improvement, so Yanks can only win.cheesy.gif.pagespeed.ce.HaOxm9--Zv.gif' Is typical from somebody that doesn't have a clue!! He doesn't even have a grasp of the correct usage of the English Language., instaead of in I think that he meant other than. Get a life and enjoy the country where you have chosen to live without all of the BS complaining otherwise go somewhere else!!

Sorry, rant for the day over, back to my import logistics arragments for my new chariot!

If you read it again you may realise that he said "leaving" not "living", so that makes "in" the correct word. Possibly you now get his drift. You may wish to revise your comments about a grasp of the English Language.

I am not aware of anyone "continuosly" complaining or saying that life here is unacceptable, but it is a much debated point whether it is correct to point out any shortcomings or ignore them and assume that Thais are incapable of doing anything properly. I find the latter approach to be a bit patronising.

Ref The Walk opening time, whether it is eight, nine or ten is of no consequence to me as I will not be there for any of them. Sorry about that Davey. (You are not the Davey who used to drink in the Yellow bar by any chance)?

Just a quick one as out soon.

I also have a degree in electrical fixing.

Take yesterday I had to fit a new remote switch in my bedroom enable's me to turn on and off the TV light's etc while I'm in bed, all went well I did have a bit of faffing about as it wasn't the same type as before. All connected I pressed the remote it lit up and low and behold nothing worked not a thing bugger all.

Had several go's at it and in the end I found out what I had done well not done as the case maybe I had not turned on the main's power.

H/M is available to help you if would like me to pop along and have a go at your thing when it arrives you only have to ask.

H/M.

Do we all get a Davey Crocket hat or should I supply my own.

Now I have been schooled by the "English" professor, a Brit no doubt! If "in" is the correct word then pleae explain the entrire phrase "leaving in"! When youleave someplace you leave from, not in, so "leaving from" would be acceptable but "laeving in" make apbsolutely no sense at all! When you leave, you exit, you don't go in!

I don't know or care about the walk and I,m certainly not the "Davey " that used to drink in the Yellow bar as I have lived here fro 16 years and have never been in a bar in Nakhon Sawan or KPP province.

I'm not sure about your statement of Thai Bashing as I live in a small village with Thais everyday.

Water here is a problem also, I have 12 ongs that we fill with rain water. The water was off last week for a couple of days but now it;s back to it's normal drip. The road to my house is now dry and the sugar and corn have been harvested but in rainy season it's a "E" ticket disneyland ride at times.

Buying and shipping the beast has been a real experience and the assembly once it arrives will be fun, a multimillon baht erector set. Maybe I'll have an assembly party, BYOW (bring your own wrench), beer will be on the house.

Now that sound like a plan to me and I may take you up on it. I do have calibrated hammers of various sizes and a 14 lb sledge hammer for those difficult to fit bits.

I was an aircraft radio engineer in one career and a builder of cell phone base stations in another.

(1) (Sighs) Read it again, the phrase was "leaving anywhere in America" which was presumably said lightheartedly and makes perfect sense. You could always just accept that you were wrong.

(2)The Davey in question is the poster "davyboy" who was enquiring about The Walk.

(3) You brought up Thai bashing/moaning Brits, I was commenting on that.

I will never accept that I am wrong, being wrong is a fatal flaw!

Have you ever heard about implied prepositions? To make the sentance gramatically acceptable the you are impliying that the preposition "from" is inserted between leaving and America. It is an acceptable interpretation but is certainly not gramatically correct and not one that I woyld think that a proper Englishman would accept. I learned not "learnt" the English language in America, and actually taught Engish Grammer in a secondary school for 6 years, not the UK so if it suits you fine and you can tell AOP that you are sorry that I am an A**!

As far as Davey, you quoted my post and you brought up the Davey question! Does your elevator fail to reach the top floor sometimes.

I brought up moaning Brits but in no way did I ever say anything about Thai Bashing! Saying that Brits continue to whine that everything is not like home is not Thai bashing, it's more like Brit bashing which the whiners well deserve.

Muskets at 20 meters at noon! Just kidding, have a niece day and let us both get on with what's left of our lives!

We have 20 ongs interlinked plus 6 spares but our water went off a couple of weeks or so ago and I am on my last 8 plus 3 that got got topped up yesterday from the fire truck. I am not expecting the water to return until after songkran as usual.

When you have finished your rebuild of the monster you may have enough bits left over for one of these.

I'm out tomorrow with a submersable pump to see exactly how much water is left, most of my ongs are less than half full, but haven't had to get any brought in yet.

I'm working on a modification to the corn harvester to detect Kippers. I'm going to patent it and call it a "Kipper Sniffer" and see if I can rig the beast to seek out and "encapsulate", not destroy, those from Kipperland for furture exploytation I wouldn't mind having someone in the barn that smelled like fish if we are overrun with stray cats!!

This is my water storage farm.

The simplist way of finding the water level is with a stick ot some 3/4 blue water pipe as a dipstick. My ongs are 1,700 litres but as the outflow is about 6 inches off the ground I figure 1,500 useable litres.

My drinking water is in 2 x 3,000 litre s/s tanks that generally last between the wet seasons.
