  1. If you have access to shops in Europe I would recommend a Fritzbox router http://www.fritzbox....index.php?tab=4 Not cheap, but it has everything you need and more. Receives very positive reviews in Germany. Or Daytek http://www.draytek.co.uk/products/vigor2760.html
  2. Actually it wasn't made in jest. Just consider taking your Farang GF to Soi Cowboy who has now idea that: a. you are into prostitutes (she must assume that you are since you know about the place - worst case: girls greets you by name. ) b. and probably hasn't experienced anything like this in her life before. In Patpong you can pretend to go there for the usual tourist stuff, and you might even be able steer the GF in the direction of a bar without her noticing it...
  3. Yep, Unit will call the all and ask if you have been there and how you did behave.
  4. I use VPN more and more, especially when downloading movies. Here is a list of trustworthy VPN's (which don't keep logs) http://torrentfreak.com/vpn-services-that-take-your-anonymity-seriously-2013-edition-130302/
  5. I guess that's a perfect recommendation for guys who bring their girlfriend/wife to LOS and want to have a glimpse at the P4P nightlife without getting served the divorce papers after their return...
  6. Yep, that shows best the hypocrisy of the Western sports organizations and media. Qatar: Since 2004, Article 296 of the current Penal Code (Law 11/2004) stipulate imprisonment between 1 and 3 years for sodomy (homosexual acts between adult males). In 1995 an American citizen visiting Qatar was sentenced to six months in prison and 90 lashes, for homosexual activity.[4] In the 1990s, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration informed Philippine workers that gay workers were prohibited in Qatar. This was in response to several mass arrests and deportations of Philippine workers in Qatar, for homosexuality. http://en.wikipedia....#Privacy_rights
  7. There is the great video - produced by Microsoft!!!! (no joke) - which shows how MS would design an iPod package. http://youtu.be/EUXnJraKM3k
  8. Yep MS' Tablet is a huge financial disaster. Microsoft Surface a Flop? Advertising Outpaces Revenue Microsoft has spent more money marketing its Surface tablet and Windows 8 than the slate has made back for the company. In its annual Form 10-K that the company just filed with the SEC, Microsoft claims that it earned $853 million from the Surface and Surface Pro. During the last fiscal year, Microsoft says there was an $898 million increase in advertising costs associated with Surface and Windows 8. Those numbers don’t paint a pretty picture for Microsoft’s iPad challenger. Recently, Microsoft announced a $900 million write-down related to the Surface RT, whose price was slashed from $500 to $350. Between the RT and Pro models, Bloomberg reported 1.5 million Surfaces had been sold through March, and Geekwire estimates that total is now 1.7 million. To put that in perspective, Apple just moved 14.6 million iPads in what was considered a down quarter. .... http://blog.laptopma...face-sales-flop
  9. I find the video boring, but I am not the target audience.
  10. ​Great Slogan IMHO website: http://gothaibefree.com Thais Cast a Wide Net for Diverse Tourists BANGKOK — Tolerance, the Thais have learned, is good for business. In recent advertising and marketing campaigns, the government here in “the land of smiles†has actively gone after categories of tourists that for reasons of political sensitivity or outright discrimination are shunned in some neighboring countries. It is the only Asian country, travel industry analysts say, that has a government-sponsored campaign — “Go Thai. Be Free.†— aimed at gay and lesbian travelers. Thailand, which is overwhelmingly Buddhist, is also marketing itself to Muslims as a place where food prepared according to Islamic precepts is readily available and where “halal spas†offer separate facilities for women and men. All the leading shopping malls and the beach resort city of Pattaya have Muslim prayer rooms — a far cry from the widespread anti-Muslim feelings in neighboring Myanmar .... NYT
  11. I don't think so. The US government - as well as the German government - will only confirm what's already known, but will do everything to hide anything else.
  12. That's a misunderstanding and a major problem: the mined data are being analyzed by machines not by humans. Which means that a mathematical algorithm might decide about your future (job application, visa, e.g.). It's well established that a part of the data collected is not correct and/or is being falsely categorized/interpreted. A human might find some stupid errors which a PC won't recognize. But even if people are involved one wrongly categorized email in the hands of your local secret service agency could destroy your career. -- There is the example of a German researcher who did research on Islam. He sent out questionnaires by email to Muslims in his area and one was sent to - as he found out - to a radical islamist. Nothing special and so far so good. This guy has been a conservative all his live, supporting the conservative party, going to church every Sunday, he even got a scholarship buy a well established conservative organization, he is married and and has kids. In short a person with a boring life within the conservative establishment of his town. Due to his work on the inter-religious dialogue between Muslims and Christians the conservative government offered him a job, but soon after the shit hit the fan: A newspapers asked how the government could offer a job to someone who was in contact with radicals, someone who was married to Turkish Muslim (never mind that the women had a German passport and went to a catholic school). The newspaper article suggested that he could be a radical muslim agent within the German government. Then a politician from the opposition party asked for an inquiry why the government could employ a supporter of Islamists. In short, one email sent to a Muslim (to whom the guy never had any additional contact) and the fact that he was married to a Muslim women of Turkish decent was nearly enough to destroy his career as a researcher and consultant to the government. Luckily the minister who hired him supported him without question. It is clear that the local secret service was behind the campaign to destroy the guy. The reason: it seems that the secret service wasn't interested in an inter religious dialogue and started to dig up anything they could find on the guy and then passed the information on to a journalist and a politician. And now think of the NSA database(s) in which any agent could start a query on just any persons and the agent will get huge sets of information within seconds... I am sure they will find something on _any_ person which would shed a negative light on this person (true or not). And then he just needs to put the information in the hands of interested parties... ------- PS: Nowadays security agencies for example do so called 3rd grade searches on persons using Facebook e.g.: 3 grade means friends of friends of friends. If you have like 200 FB friends this amounts to around 3 Mio. people. I am sure they will find something on you.
