Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

This is an interesting read if you are wondering about the process of entry into Thailand. The experience of a well known Expat going through quarantine at the moment. IMHO the food looks like cr#p but there is some reasonable advice. https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1188845-quarantine-tales-1-thaiv...

Apologies to the Irish:- Paddy had grown depressed with the world . . . . All its Covid-19 restrictions, Chinese aggression, Global Warming, Trump's campaign, lying politicians and all the rest of the negative news that fills our media.

Re: floating voltage

BTW Bandung do you still think my floating voltage problem and some shocks off appliances and off the water fixtures in the shower are from PEA not properly installing or grounding the new setup?? Is there any remedy I can take at the house. The PEA team that did the installation was from out of to...

Re: floating voltage

That's your step down transformer. The 3 phase HV is connected to the primary which has "Delta" windings (imagine a triangle with each wire attached to an apex) the secondary (220 VAC phase to neutral) is wired in a star configuration the star point being the neutral (the 4th connection, imagine a "...

Re: THe Chinese are Coming, The Chinese ae Coming!!!

Looking at the video raises the question:- Who in their right mind would put themselves through the crap they had to endure at Swampy then 14 days quarantine.

Re: floating voltage

Sorry that’s not true, the Thai power system is mostly transitioned to TN-C-S with MEN, ours certainly is TN-C-S with a MEN link. There are certainly areas that are pure TT. It’s not too difficult to check which you have as roughly every 3 power pole will have an earth to it. The other ways are to ...

Re: floating voltage

Firstly it is disturbing that your getting a "boot" of your HWS fittings, even the Thais know they should be earthed correctly. Without looking at it myself I would guess the PEA have a ground fault at the star point (neutral) on their step-down transformer, measure the voltage between the Earth and...

Re: Car insurance

Called "Para Bor", my class one insurer quotes it on my annual renewal as an addition. Up to me whether I take it or not = I do as the premium for it is generally a standard amount.

Re: COVID-19 Vaccination – Hypothetical

It's hypothetical, nothing in concrete but some sites saying it could be up to 30K for Farang, who knows? Just looking for "sensible" comments as to an individuals perspective.

Re: COVID-19 Vaccination – Hypothetical

"The whole question of a vaccination is rather pointless"

So your saying that the Polio and other vaccines should NOT have been made available ASAP. What sort of comment is that?

Recieved a 1.10 kg package posted:-

Tong in cheek:

So hopefully through the next debate (I assume will be help via video link) they will require Trump to wear a face mask in which the moderators have installed a sock.

Each time he shoots his mouth off someone just pushes a button and shoves the sock in his mouth! :shock:

Re: Personal Protective Coat -PPC (Sponsor)

Thanks but NO thanks. OK a site sponsor, hope your making a Baht out of it, but IMHO they are flogging a dead horse! Wearing a mask into Makro (or wherever) is bad enough without wearing a suit.
