  1. Congratulations Code. I've always maintained if you enjoy your work and produce the best possible product, the bottom line will take care of itself and people will beat a path to your door. Seems like you're living and working by the same philosophy. The beauty of our line of work is there are no shortage of opportunities to apply our skillset for coming up with solutions. Just have to keep your eyes open to spot the opportunities which by your comment "there is a shit load of new software solutions to develop" tells me you are. Also sounds like you have a great balance between work
  2. I used to do the same, but got annoyed by the headphone wire snagging on stuff. Invested in a nice 5.1 surround system, but bailed on that for movies as my tinnitus is so bad now I had a very difficult time hearing and understanding the dialog sometimes. The solution that has been working great for me are a pair of 188B Bluetooth ear buds I bought on Lazada. Proof that you don't always have to spend an arm and leg for decent quality.
  3. They got busted for serving alcohol during the lockdown so speculation is a ban for five years on the location being used as bar. That would fit with a post on PA that they've split the location in two with one half to be a pharmacy, the other half a coffee shop.
  4. Give those that have been vaccinated can still carry and infect others with the virus, I don't think it's ludicrous for a country to want to protect its citizens until a far number are themselves vaccinated.
  5. Good to see a company taking a stand against things we can not talk about.
  6. This is one of those times I'd like to see them err on the side of caution. If it turns out waiting too long for the 2nd dose results in the creation of a super virus, then the world is truly fcked.
  7. I hadn't thought of the potential of making a super virus by increasing the time between the vaccine booster shot. With that as a real possibility it's just insane the politicos want to ignore science and delay the 2nd dose until 12 weeks. Perhaps now that more are speaking out about the insanity of the plan they'll revert back to what the drug companies say is the optimum period between doses. UK should cut its 12-week delay between vaccine doses, doctors group says
  8. He was also giving away fractions of a coin to get people comfortable using it.
  9. That and Thailand's trade surplus.
  10. There may be a glimmer of hope Pattaya will be reopening soon. Pattaya News FB posted this about an hour ago. Breaking- The Chonburi Provincial Administrative Organization President has just posted on his social media account, Wittaya Khunplume, that the Chonburi Provincial Communicable Disease Committee is planning to present to the government changing Chonburi to an orange zone and not a deep red zone due to improvement in Covid19 cases. This would mean relief of many measures. He said please wait for further announcements from the Communicable Disease Committee. It is
  11. Ponzi was a poor choice of words on my part. Perhaps a better word would have been bubble. What I fail to see or understand with Bitcoin is what is its utility. I know people can use it to purchase goods and services, but your post about the purchase of a pizza using Bitcoin is a good example why people would be hesitant to use it as currency. Eleven years later the coin that was spent to buy a $200 pizza is now worth $332 million.
  12. Other than the transport of goods, is there a compelling reason people need to travel internationally during a pandemic. Even with the transport of goods, a system could be set up where once the shipping container arrives it's handed over to locals for onward shipping. Those delivering the container to the border would stay in isolated housing, and then once rested would leave without ever having entered the country. Same system could be used for isolating regions within a country that is experiencing an outbreak of infections.
  13. Almost caught up reading the Castle series.
  14. Had a discussion with a friend last night about the recent rise in the price of Bitcoin. He mad the case that Bitcoin was as real as fiat money. I pointed out one big difference between Bitcoin and printed money is the printed money is backed by the assets of the country doing the printing, and also to some extent how big their military is. Bitcoin on the other hand is nothing more than a creation of a computer algorithm, with no tangible assets backing it. There's also another troublesome aspect of Bitcoin. It's unregulated and the value is prone to manipulation. This article makes the c
  15. Living in the States, most everything I ate at home came out of the freezer first. Here in Thailand the big difference, and one of the big positives for living here, almost everything I eat now is freshly made with ingredients bought every couple of days at the local market.
