    Model Kidnapped To Be Auctioned As Sex Slave

    Mekong's post (No. 21): The "On yer bike" quip was by Norman Tebbit, then Employment Secretary. The exact words were: I grew up in the '30s with an unemployed father. He didn't riot. He got on his bike and looked for work, and he kept looking till he found it.

    How To Delete A Useless Piece Of Shit

    I use AVG (cleans up and then runs in the background, free package at first, then pay for full service) + Spybot, a free package that the user has trigger. Both suggested by professional computer chappie at work. Sympathies to Flash - seems like only yesterday that he posted his first computer whinge on Nanapong - I'll commiserate with a drink at Woodstock later tonight. [Er ... something not quite right here....]

    Top Thailand National Universities Rankings

    On what criteria were the universities assessed? - The ranking is meaningless without that information. EG: Research output in peer-reviewed journals? External assessment of courses/teaching/examinations? Assesment by discipline (not spanking, Flash - by course subjects) - even the best unies have some crap departments and vice versa.

    The Last Hurrah ...

    Wasn't the money owed to *NYS* repaid after a rather large Nanapong moderator from Scotland paid a call on Graham? I don't think the young guy ever saw his money again - just like our old pal Somchai? On a brighter note, Jools was the first Thai bar I visited on my inaugural visit in 1988. Fine establishment, with a very kind bartendee called Dao (Star). Happy days...
