    Visa Runs Over

    http://www.nationmultimedia.com/breakingnews/Crackdown-on-tourist-visas-sees-dozens-turned-away-30238510.html PHUKET: Tourists unable to prove the legitimacy of their trip to Thailand are being turned away despite having tourist visas issued by Thailand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, confirmed Lt Col Banphot Kittivira, deputy superintendent of the Immigration checkpoint at Sadao. The Sadao checkpoint, the portal for Phuket visa runners bound for Malaysia, sees about 100 foreigners denied entry into the Kingdom per month, Col Banphot noted. "If tourists can't provide us
  4. Hard to find the individual as described, and have influence at the same time. Since they seem to have come up with something reasonable, how about a proxy PM approach by committee, not one person but a group with stature. Consult each other for a consensus in private and release decisions via a press spokesman. From above: "The group includes Surichai Wungaeo and Chantana Banpasirichote, Chulalongkorn University political scientists; Chaiwat Satha-Anand, founder and director of the Peace Information Centre at Thammasat University; and General Ekkachai Srivilas, director of the Of
  5. This thread is one reason, nobody reads this board anymore. Totally useless ...

  7. Truly one of the most “Insanely Great†innovators ever to live.
  8. All rolled together, for me makes for a less pleasurable casual read.
  9. I do not like it as much. The board is not as easy to read. 1) Forum Index in the boxes makes the eyes bounce, if your eyes are like mine, need to refocus into each box. (yup, bad eyesight and getting old, I guess my bad eyesight, I notice the bounce more) 2) White background and type is two small, not comfortable. 3) Jump to, Not Yet Read, is very big,unless a extremely interesting thread, not going to thumb the post to find out where I left off. 4) Bland, hard to explain, but less character, just another board. MANY people will vote with their feet, may not even t
  10. It is a bit better, thanks. What makes the eyes crazy however, is the Thai360 AND Forum page, generally what I was referring too.
  11. Well, I do not use the full width, I have about 10+ sites (6 of'em major newspapers), I regularly visit, not an issue, for any of the others or the last version of Thai360, very rare when it is an issue. I am set so I never have justify left to right, to view width of an entire IE browser page (125%) HD 17" Sony Notebook (1920 by 1200 pixel), while seeing 2 columns of most used program icons to the left, and seeing who is online yahoo and messenger to the right. I guess with my less than perfect and still fading with age eyesight, it more of an issue for me, color, size and refocusing, n
  12. I think he means, when he clicks on a forum, he wants to go directly to post(s) he has not yet read, in the thread, 122 replies - 7 unread, click and jump to the 7, for example. The Forums page blocking, colors and font size and style are not easy on the eyes, spread across the field of white. What you do not need to read but once BIG/bright, and what you want small, blocking prevents smooth normal reading, rather your eyes have to refocus into box. Spellcheck, needs to be download ?

By JUERGEN BAETZ The Associated Press updated 7/15/2011 7:39:22 AM ET 2011-07-15T11:39:22 BERLIN — Thailand's foreign minister was visiting Germany Friday in a bid to retrieve a plane used by the Crown Prince that was impounded earlier this week in a long-running commercial dispute.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle is currently in Mexico. The Boeing 737 "Royal Flight" was seized in Germany on Tuesda
  14. Stickman should get together, with the Realestate guy, and sell the story to his bud Dean Barrett. Dean could spice it up, surely a movie will follow. With reserving the right to play himself in the movie a star is born.
