The Karma has been reset and voting is currently not available, because it had been abused too much.

i will enlighten your load

Thanks, my enlightenment has been already, that ten years rendering this service to the Koratexpat community to this full extent should be enough. That date is approaching soon. The first post I had made on February 07, 2009, 06:35:56 PM. Then it will go on with limitations only!

Everybody's got a right to retire! ;)

Maybe some good ideas can be given than just demands or "ridicule".  :rclxs0

are you on self destruct or is the content not up to your liking.

You're right, I should take off that "Thank You"-mod, if I can't use it much! Now would I get a "Thank You" for that? It's asked a bit much to have me read every post, play every video and think about it being worth to thank for. I'm in need of reducing my workload! Lots of other things keep coming up, that need my attention. Gotta keep balancing! ;)

Received another primitive blackmailing attempt from today:

-----Original Message-----
From: <my email address> HACKED []
Sent: Friday, January 18, 2019 9:48 AM
To: <my email address>
Subject: Hi perv. I recorded you masturbating! I have captured 'Mail.mp4'!

ATTN: <my email address>


Hi perv,

The last time you visited a p0rnographic website with teens,
you downloaded and installed software I developed.

My program has turned on your camera and recorded
the process of your masturbation.

My software has also downloaded all your email contact lists
and a list of your friends on Facebook.

I have both the 'Mail.mp4' with your masturbation
as well as a file with all your contacts on my hard drive.

You are very perverted!

If you want me to delete both the files and keep the secret,
you must send me Bitcoin payment. I give you 72 hours for payment.

If you don't know how to send Bitcoins, visit Google.

Send 2.000 USD to this Bitcoin address immediately:

(copy and paste)

1 BTC = 3,580 USD right now, so send exactly 0.565926 BTC
to the address provided above.

Do not try to cheat me!
As soon as you open this Email I will know you opened it.

This Bitcoin address is linked to you only,
so I will know if you sent the correct amount.
When you pay in full, I will remove the files and deactivate my program.

If you don't send the payment, I will send your masturbation video
to ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES from your contact list I hacked.

Here are the payment details again:

Send 0.565926 BTC to this Bitcoin address:


You саn visit police but nobody will help you. I know what I am doing.
I don't live in your country and I know how to stay anonymous.

Don't try to deceive me - I will know it immediately - my spy ware is
recording all the websites you visit and all keys you press.
If you do - I will send this ugly recording to everyone you know,
including your family.

Don't cheat me! Don't forget the shame and if you ignore this message your
life will be ruined.

I am waiting for your Bitcoin payment.

If you need more time to buy and send 0.565926 BTC,
open your notepad and write '48h plz'.
I will consider giving you another 48 hours before I release the vid.

Had the silly blackmailer attachedthe alleged video, part of it or at least a screenshot of me, he might have got at least a thank you for that, if it could be called art and therefore had at least a little value. Or if the alleged video had been so good, it could be used to impress girls.;)

When you receive a message like that, open the "Message Options", scroll down to "List-Unsubscribe:", copy the link below that, paste it into the address line of a browser and open it. Then you should get the message "<your email address> removed from mailing list - you will no longer receive emails from"
Hi roger in answer to your question, income letters, its so untidy and more work for them, imo i think they will revert back. there was a meeting 2 days ago the subject of 90 days and 10 yr visas was mentioned, could be some changes there.

anything comes up, i will let you know one way or other.

Keep in touch Thaiga  :salute

EDITED 14:18 time  from LawrenceN t/v Posted Tuesday at 05:55 PM

I promised I would report after extending my retirement visa (yes, we all know it's not really called that). I successfully extended my visa today at Chiang Mai.

I arrived about 9am. I was in for a re-entry permit a couple of weeks ago and was told by that friendly male supervisor that it was no longer necessary to queue before dawn. I got a queue number and waited maybe an hour.

My visa expires every Jan 30. I didn't bother with the letter from the US Consulate, because there were numerous announcements saying those letters are obsolete. I had a year's worth of Bangkok Bank statements (two six-month statements) showing foreign transfers into my account every month. When I went for the most recent statement, I asked for a letter confirming regular monthly deposits from my pension funds. The bank said they are only able to give me confirmation of the current balance. I don't keep 800,000 baht in my account, never have, so declined that letter, thinking it was pointless as I planned to use the monthly income method. That was a minor mistake; more below.

I had my TM7 filled out (photo attached), all necessary copies of passport pages, the bank statements with each monthly deposit highlighted in yellow, quarterly statements from one pension source, and an annual letter from the second source stating the monthly amount of my pension. When my number was called, the IO went through my paperwork. The only thing missing, he said, was the confirmation letter from the bank. I told him my bank didn't know anything about confirming monthly income, only current balance. He said that's what he needs, the rules require it. It's just bureaucratic pointlessness when using the monthly income method, but I wasn't gonna argue. I strolled over to Bangkok Bank at the Airport Mall and was back in half an hour with the letter. By then, it was about 11:30. I went straight back to the IO I had talked to before and gave him the letter. He added it to my papers. I got my photo taken and sat down to wait while the ladies pored over my papers some more. I got my passport back about 12:30.

So not much drama, all very cordial. No letter from our consulate was necessary or even mentioned. Statements from your bank are enough to verify income, as promised.

General Discussions / Trump and Churchill

I was clearing out a dusty old corner of my library the other day and came across a long forgotten book.  Ensconced in my favourite chair with a bottle of claret, I started to turn the pages.  I was suddenly struck by a surprising similarity between Donald Trump and Winston Churchill.  It is not that they both have American mothers.
There are no prizes for the answer but you might just have MI5 and the CIA knocking on your door.
Just one clue, it would be useful to include “Burgess” in any Google search.

CCTV in a temple? Whatever next? You cannot do any honest thieving anywhere these days without being picked up on CCTV.  I am sure the lady will be a cockroach in the next life.
