    What does this say?

    I'd love to know the back-story to this: does she have a clue? Maybe she chose it cause the curly letters look cute? Or did the tattoo artist do it for a laugh? Or to pay her back for being annoying? Her name is Barbara, so she insisted on a transliteration!

    Saw this on Reddit, apparently it means "fresh spring rolls"? (playing around with attaching pix...)

    Server Problems

    As some of you may know, I upgraded the server that runs thai360.com a few days ago. This supposedly-improved server has proved balky and stubborn, with the database crashing at regular intervals. I spent a bunch of time tonight working on it- but had to give up and go back to the original server for the moment, which is where I'm posting this. With any luck, I'll get the new setup working shortly, and will move everything back there. If not, I'll be picking up the few days of posts that may be missing here and get everything synced up. Apologies for any inconvenience.... Jigger

    Server Problems

    ...and thanks for the kind words, sysadmins can sometimes feel unappreciated ;-)

    Server Problems

    The latest iteration of the new server seems to be running smoothly, so I put it into production. With any luck it will run steadily; meanwhile the upgraded Nagios monitoring system will be watching closely. If anyone sees problems, do let me know. Jigger

    Hooters, Soi 4.

    Agreed. But, OTOH if you're mgmt, you have to have some ways to motivate the servers to pay attention to customers and not lose checks. A smart manager will announce this policy, insist it is strictly enforced, and then be very generous with exceptions ;-)
  10. Anyone know what the Thai says at the end of that scene?

    Yup, guess that space used to be Pretty Girl?

    Phuket Nightlife Prices?

    I'll be in Phuket in a few days... wondering about the ST/LT prices outside of Patong- say Karon or Kata? Does it get cheaper and/or more low-key as you get farther away from Patong? Anyone from this board gonna be there 25.11-30.11? cheers, Jigger

    Phuket Nightlife Prices?

    Answering my own question, a freelancer from a disco on Soi Bangla asked for 2K. She was definitely worth it.

    I Love Gogo's

    The bar on the bottom left where Lollipop used to be is now called Spellbound. Inside, they combined two bars into a large space with an interesting X-shaped dance bar. When I was there in December the dancers were reasonably attractive and very enthusiastic. I love the "toxic shock" picture by the door- it's my new mobile phone background.

    Patong - Nightlife Outside Bangla Road

    There are smaller, much more low-key areas of beer bars on Karon and Kata beaches, which are the next beaches south from Patong along the coastal road.

    Angelwitch 2, Formerly Hollywood Rock

    I have some great memories of the Hollywood. But they all have a life-cycle, it seems...

    Paying a Girl's Barfine

    I've enjoyed having some "friends" among the girls, who I can do favors for, and receive favors in return. One girl I met in Safari in 1990 became a friend for many years. Though I didn't go with her, she took care of me whenever I stopped in (or pretended to, but there's no point in trying to discern the difference ;-)

    Problems with Board

    Awfully sorry, guys. I've had some issues to deal with in the datacenter that have caused the board to be a little flaky lately. My biggest customer departed unexpectedly requiring the reorganization of 2 racks worth of computers ;-(. The worst is behind us, I just fixed a DNS glitch that was slowing ad display, and the MySQL database is humming along nicely. Thanks for your patience! Jigger, thai360 data plumber

    Blocked Site

    We had some problems at the server site which were eventually resolved by resetting a firewall (which of course claimed to be working perfectly fine before and after ;-). The site was down from sometime late Friday to about 14:00GMT Saturday. Sorry for any inconvenience! Jigger Grid Monkey

    Soi Cowboy to be closed ?

    Soi Cowboy has long been a holdout along a long line of building developments. The last block of traditional shophouses along Soi Asoke. Way too much money to shut it down! (photos from 2005)

    Excuse me, miss, are you a whore?

    Jonjon: Finally, a decent suggestion for a subtle approach that may work past language/cultural barriers, even in VN (where the Good Girls can be way more conservative than in LOS)...!
