Re: Where can I buy a decent motorcycle helmet

I recommend a Nolan Air. Expensive Italian helmet, but has great air flow and a detachable chin guard. The problem with normal full face helmets is that they steam up when raining and peripheral vision suffers greatly.

Re: Solar Power

The question remains. Will you ever get a payback. I can't answer that but I can say that over all these these years, my systems have been remarkably trouble free. Do I save any money? I don't know because I don't pay any attention. My wife pays the electric bill and truthfully I don't even know how...

Re: Good Samaritan, Udon

Thanks parrot.... always good to hear another positive story about life in Udon Thani/Thailand. Those with a different experience(s) could always start a new thread to relate their experience(s), instead of polluting this one. =D> They would no doubt get plenty of the resident disaffected whingers ...

Re: Good Samaritan, Udon

Several years ago the village bought solar powered street lights. A couple weeks later thieves had stolen the batteries out of more than half the lights on the edges of the village. They still have not replaced the stolen batteries.

Re: Good Samaritan, Udon

There are plenty of thieves also. We have a farm off the electric grid. I installed a solar power system there. I had four deep cycle batteries in the small house. In the past couple of days the thieves broke out a window and managed to steal two of the four batteries. Those batteries are heavy and ...

Re: Plastic Bags

I don't know if it is still happening, BUT, some time back I could see barges loaded with garbage heading out to open waters from Pattaya. It's not an educated guess that the purpose was to dump that trash. No doubt that there are ships that take care of their trash responsibly, but obviously not a...

Re: Plastic Bags

Basically there is nothing wrong with plastic bags. The problem lies with people. We must educate people how to dispose of their trash. Every day I see people drop their trash wherever they happen to be. In our small village, every house has a refuse container. How difficult would it be to drop the ...

Re: CCTV - internet connected

That's the reason all 7 of my cameras run 24/7 off my solar power systems. Once in a great while the Internet goes down and the wireless cameras are still recording.

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

I too question how these "AGENTS" can continue to do business and openly advertise. It is clearly illegal. I had thought that the latest rule changes would put them out of business. I was wrong.

Re: Solar Power

I'm certain that the Panasonic was never working properly since the day it was installed. Home Pro servicemen came a couple times and said it was fully charged and working properly. Just after the warranty expired, it died. Panasonic Thailand would never even bother to reply to my several complaints.

There are a number of advantages using the Yi Home outdoor cameras. You can easily set them up yourself with your computer because they are wireless. The setup actually talks to you and makes setup easy. Once you have the cameras paired to your WiFi, you can plug them into any outlet within WiFi ran...

Re: CCTV - internet connected

I then bought a system from a local guy. I bought the four camera unit. He did a nice job of installing the system and it works great. Too late I discovered that four cameras were not enough. I then bought two Yi Home WiFi cameras. They also work great but don't record on a hard drive. They use an ...

I would appreciate it if anyone can help/advice regarding removal/killing of geckos inside the house. I know they control insects etc but I have an intense dislike for gecko cr@p on the bedding. You sound like my wife. I yell at her when she is trying to kill one of those little guys. I have to ask...

My first experience was done myself with D-Link equipment. I bought D-Link off Lazada because everything was supposedly very easy to install. NEVER again will I ever buy anything D-Link, it was it a nightmare to install. After that everything quit working. After asking for support, I was informed th...

Re: U.S. Politics

During my working life, I had a boss who was a great likable guy. He was a very poor manager. He was replaced with a guy who was anything except likable. He was rude and arrogant but was a very good manager. Which one do you think was better for the company. Trump only looks out for himself? Since h...
