  1. That explains enlarging, thx. How does 'bicubic' relate to making an image smaller and not having the squashed effect that I sometimes get? Is it just due to resizing and the measurements no longer being linear? I'm not 100% sure I'm understanding this
  2. Whats a bi-cubic image? I'm assuming its sizing related, other than that I'm clueless. Cheers Z
  3. A quick google search could have rectified that.
  4. Why when choosing 'Great' players are non goal scoring players always ignored? Can a defender or goalkeeper not be great? My vote: If I say the 'Messi role' it doesn't mean anything. A striker/second striker or some would say a 'free-role' maybe even an advanced midfielder. Meaningless. If I say the 'Claude Makelele role' most will know what I mean. He gets my vote.
  5. Went to Chiang Mai last month. No meter taxi's, unless you manage to catch 1 on the his way back to the airport.
  6. Depending on where you live and what you planning on getting up to, you may need to factor in transport costs. Admittedly not much if you travel by motorbike/moped or songteaw/bus but it adds up over a month. If living here long term you should think about health insurance costs. Also any visa renewal/extension costs over the year. It may well be a case of working out what you can afford to live on each month and working backwards.
  7. Soon to make the big move out to Thailand (for good...hopefully) and was wondering if anyone has any good advice. Work is sorted so visa renewal/work permit should be ok. I'm sure I can work out the forms if required but worried I may be forgetting something... I know I'll need the following so tips would be nice: Health insurance - I know I'll need this but have little idea of cost/requirements. I assume its a matter of 'get the best you can afford' just wondering what is cheap/expensive and if anyone has reccommendations. Broadband - reliability and speed are the most important, not co
  8. I'll be joining in on the contests, but I'm away without all my good pics at the moment. The only camera I have is on my phone 1megapix and no way to get to them so will have to be next contest Cheers Z
  9. Anyone know of any good pool halls in BKK. Not competitive places, my missus's loves to play pool but only against me so the winner-stay-on/challenge places aren't really for us. Used to play in CountryRoad2(?) which was above Foodland on soi5, had 10+ pool tables so we could find a table and just play. Now they've moved across the road only 3 tables, little room around them and people want to challenge all the time. Any ideas? Cheers Z
  10. Are we keeping this Thai specific or are we opening it up? Just asking as someone suggested this would be a way to get new members to enter. Z
  11. Just done the first and all important visit to the future inlaws in Ubon (I'll post more details about that in the relevant area). Stayed in the aforementioned Sunee Grand Hotel. Found it online, Agoda I think, was one of the better looking hotels available while still being inside the town/city. 1500baht per room per night. Didn't book online, got the better half to ring up and reserve. Requesting 2 rooms for 2 nights, 1 with double bed and 1 with 2 singles. Rooms on the same floor and preferably next to each other and if possible a smoking room (all of which their website said was availa
  12. These maybe rubbish ideas but I've promised myself to be more active on the forum so... 1.Religion - most people will have a picture of a temple or monks etc. 2.City/town - landscape pics or relevant of inner-city/town life 3.Country - Same as above but country (most stop stating the obvious) 4.Nightlife - a regular nightlife scene, not necessarily a naughty bar pic. 5.Water - a pic with some reference to water, songkran pics or rain or rivers etc. 6.Wildlife/nature - maybe with sub-divisions for plants/animals etc. Cheers Z
  13. I arrived early September on the 30day tourist visa exemption. 1.Can I extend this by 30 days? 2.Without leaving the country? 3.If not what do I need to do/apply for? 4.What do I need for the above? 5.And where exactly (address please, soi will do...) do I do it? Sorry, I'm sure the answers are here already but I've read so many posts without ever getting a definitive answer that I thought I may as well ask. Thanks for helping a dummy. Z
  14. Made me feel like I was straining my eyes as well...I think I'll leave 3d alone.
  15. Saw Fright Night in 3D in Fashion Island. Was in screen number 11, 1 of the smaller screens. Only 5 people in total. Movie was sanuk. Colin Farrel was good as the brooding vampire. It was my first 3D experience and I'm not impressed. Was great on the opening credit (for Dolby I think) but was crap after that. Was more like 1 screen on top of another. You could see a distance to the background from the characters etc. but both the background and characters looked 2D. Like a puppet show with cardboard cutouts and changing backgrounds. Could've been the movie as it was at night (stating the obv
