Korat Internet & Technology Forum / Online Harms

The UK government has just published a white paper entitled Online Harms.  This appears to be a draconian piece of work which would even put forum operators at risk of prosecution.  It seems the government are not amused that the Internet has castrated their control of media.  Here is Guido’s take on the subject:-

I don't feel solidary with illegal immigrants!

And I've seen how some Western countries hassle immigrants with bureaucracy. Of course there are certain things still to improve in the Thai immigration administration, but the procedures have come very far since I came to Thailand 30 years ago. The exchange over internet forums also helped understand the requirements for legal immigration and stay. I have no real reason to complain!

Rahaf in is Canada now. Hopefully safe! But remember

...her father, who is a high government official in Saudi-Arabia, has arrived in Thailand and poses a threat. Nobody can tell what he's gonna do, what he might be able to do. After all this is Thailand.

Official Stuff & Laws / Immigration Chief Transferred to Inactive Post
« Last post by Johnnie F. on April 07, 2019, 11:24:02 AM »
BANGKOK — The immigration chief, who was seen as a rising star in the police force, was abruptly transferred to an inactive post according to an order released Saturday.

The document, issued by police commander Gen. Chakthip Chaijinda, said Lt. Gen. Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn was transferred on Friday to the Operation Center of the National Police Office. The order specified neither his new duties nor the reason for the transfer.

Surachate became one of the most visible faces of the Royal Thai Police after leading a crackdown on foreigners illegally staying in Thailand in 2017. He was appointed as the chief of the Immigration Bureau in September 2018 and received much praise for handling the headline-making case of a Saudi woman who narrowly escaped deportation from Thailand on her way to seek asylum in Australia.

there's no right of reply ?

Rule in every forum is to keep posting on topic only, Roger.  :)

The propaganda of the populist right-wing politician Alice Weidel in Germany, who already stands in jail with one foot for her involvement in illegal party financing, is of no impact to the Brexit discussion. Do you fall for and then spread further populist propaganda, Roger?  ;)

And Mariana Harder-Kühnel from the populist right-wing party AFD yesterday failed to become VP of the Bundestag in all three ballots. Now the AFD want to play obstruction and put up a new candidate every week, since it is their constitutional right as "strongest" opposition party (in the last elections only) to get one of their own to that post. The choice, who that will be, is up to the members of the Bundestag! Populists playing silly games! Democracy will prevail!

Korat Internet & Technology Forum / Re: Tingling Chargers

KC, I think the problem lies in the design of the chargers. Most of them are 2 pin devices and phase- neutral polarity should not matter if they are providing true isolation between input and output.  The HP charger (3 pin device) is fine when used with an earth connection but you get tingles if you use it in 2 pin mode.  This just shows that there is no true isolation between input and output.  The only way to achieve true isolation is to have a transformer between input and output, but I think a lot of these devices are based on switch mode power supplies with no true isolation.  Unfortunately, most of these chargers are sold in bubble packs so you cannot do a tingle test in the shop.  All I can say is steer well clear of of the Yukuma.

That's insulting Johnnie. You make stark points yourself but there's no right of reply ?

I'll leave you to it for now then. Enjoy

Obviously you still haven't understood, that the sub forum "Home: Britain" is about the UK, therefore all your "information" about any other country is just off topic. Do you think, you can impress somebody by posting incessantly off topic?  Bad luck for you, I don't hold any nationalistic views. Maybe you should acquire the German language and look for an audience who cares for your views about Germany or enjoys arguing with you.

Sorry, Roger, I'm way beyond minding a troll.   ;D
