  1. I have searched many of the threads on ED, and though Levitra is mentioned, no one has really advised on its availability in BKK. So is Levitra or an Indian (preferred) or Chinese generic of Vardenfil available in the pharmacies in BKK. I am aware of the availability oof Viagra (and Pnengra, IKamagra) and cialis (apcalis). This question is specific to Levitra and generics.
  2. Do any of the pharmacies in BKK sell Armour Thyroid? It is used for hypo-thyroid conditions. I have allergic reactions to synthroid which is more common. Armour thyroid is basically desiccated pig thyroid. It might also be sold under some generic name if coming out of India or China>
  3. Moo Gata/steak place just down from from the On Nut BTS is OK, known for steak which is sometimes OK, sometimes tough. Personally, I like the moo gata restaurant on Phrakanong (Suk 71) but it is quite a way down from Sukimvit, about Pridi 39 or so (soi if you wish), it is on the left hand side as you are going away from Sukhimvit. If you order the seafood "moo gata" they have shrimp, mussels, oysters, squid, and scallops (yes, real scallops in the shell) along with the normal beef, port, chicken and fish offerings. Quite a few additional dishes as well, not expensive 199 baht if memory serv
  4. Rather than wasting your time getting opinions, if you have the Windows 7 software, just install it and see. Windows 7 has to be the easiest OS install I have ever seen (even ultimate), you basically answer a couple of questions at the beginning and let it rip and you are up in about 20 minutes. If you have a legitimate copy, I would wait to activate until you are sure you want it, if your copy is not legitimate, using something like the DAZ Loader (available anywhere on the net) and activate it with that software, throw some free antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, etc. on
  5. Nobody has mentioned Stevie Ray Vaughn, definitely died before his time, or Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits yet, if you like a guy who uses his fingers instead of a pick. Sometimes, it isn't all technique, but feeling, a la Carlos Santana. Another guy I thought was worthy of mention was Roy Buchanan.
  6. Forgot one thing. Microsoft has a free tool, whatever, called "synctoy", which could be used to move folders over to another PC, but also maintain folders in sync afterwards by several different methods. I have used it to synchonize massive jpg/raw photofiles, some as large as 15,000 plus entries. Does a nice job laying down the first copy, and then synchronizing them dependent on what rules I give it for synchronization. People might find it handy.
  7. It's a nice guideline. If at least one of your systems is Windows 7, read carefully. Windows 7 introduced a thing called 'homegroups', and it changed the way you set up file sharing. W7 to W7 is pretty straight forward. But XP or Vista to W7 is not as straight forward, read this and other documentation carefully. It works nicely but the initial setup can be confusing.
  8. My windows PC (circa 5 years old and 3 years old) also have them. But..., go look at the new ones, most do NOT. High end i7 laptops (ASUS, Acers, HP's) don't, their old ones did (I owned them all). Look at the new high end motherboards for desktops, very few still include firewire. Again, don't know why, firewire is a good transfer mechanism, and most of us (at least, I do) have legacy equipment that use firewire. On the wireless, looking at a simple "G" spec, 56 mbits, match that against a 100 mbit LAN. The LAN spec is approximately twice as fast, but if you measure transfer as I men
  9. Thanks, just tried it up here in Phitsanulok, download isn't as fast, it stutters a bit from time to time, but thanks again. Not that much of interest for me yet, I watched the NFL station a bit, but I can hardly wait for the weekend and see if I can watch a little NCAA Football, some great games this Saturday.
  10. You use a LAN cable because it is up to an order of magnitude faster. Wireless is what, 56 to 108 mbit, and there is much more overhead in the protocol. A LAN is 100 mbit if you have old equipment (old PC, old Router, most likely most people have NOT bought gigabit routers as yet), and 1000 mbit, if you have gigabit LAN. Do a simple test, even if you have old equipment, transfer a large movie (700 mbytes or larger) from PC to PC using a wireless setup, and time it. Now, LAN up (pun intended), using a LAN cable connect to a router (as I said, it is most like a 100 mbit LAN), time it. I gua
  11. If you are using Mozilla/Firefox, simply google firefox download helper, it will direct you to a firefox plugin that is free, easy to install (takes about 5 seconds), and it will allow you to download from any streaming site (youtube, xxx sites, etc.). It also can convert the download (usually *.flv) on the fly to other formats that might be more compatible if you want to burn it to a DVD. Downloadhelper appears as a little icon in your tool bar on the firefox browser, and you can do a lot more with it by doing additional setup. Now, downloadhelper single streams the download, so it it
  12. If you are ever wondering if demonoid, or isohunt, or eztv or others are down or blocked, go to downornot.com and have them check the site. keeps from a lot of hair pulling.
  13. Good idea, but if they have any problem with their DNS servers, you are still screwed. I just remember, when I was up north and had extended outages with Maxnet, I signed up for Open DNS which give you some backup DNS servers when your local service is down. They also walk you through what you need to do and the basic service is free. Also, I think Google offers some DNS servers at IP address which you can use when your service is down. Keep those solutions in your back pocket for the future.
  14. I have True in my area, around Sukhimvit 50, On Nut. Have had no problems this week and have downloaded a shitload of torrents on Friday/Sat/Sunday. True drops occasionally, but I reboot the modem/router and everything reconnects OK. As you said, it might just be in your area. I have Maxnet (BBB) up at my house up north and it is real flaky, wish I could get the speed I do in BKK there.
  15. Raid comes in various flavors, most popular being RAID1, RAID5, RAID10. There are others, but these are the ones that you see most often today. Most implementations are probably geared to businesses rather than personal computing, but, you certainly can implement it for personal use as long as your mother board has disk controllers that will support it. You do not have to have windows server as an OS or a NAS to implement, although RAID is probably most prevalent with either or those implementations. You can bring up raid under windows 7 or other OS's. Using the different types of raid u
