    reregistration failed
    got some automated email informing me that I did not meet the requirements
    for membership, whatever they are

    weird, can hardly think I'm banned, haven't posted anything weird

    anyway
    if somebody here could be bothered to ask the SF techs to "re-surrect" my
    as a user, it would be appreciated

    my SF nick is/was melvin
    I wouldn't take it personally and I doubt you have done anything wrong.
    Surin Farang have been having problems with their forum software for quite a few months now, it has a virus/malware of some sort.( maybe wise to even stay away from the site altogether IMHO )
    I have noticed of late with some of my accounts that when I log-in pages take ages to load or don't even load at all.But if you don't log in you can view their Open Forum pages with no problems .
    If you go to the bottom of Surin Farangs main page you will see in the bottom right hand corner the wording 'Contact Us' ,....click on this and a pop-up box will appear on the screen where you can send them a message with your problem.

    I hope that helps melvin

    Melvin, possibly you were playing the 'change a letter to make a new word game' a tad too much. 555

    How has your 500 hp "Khwai hotrod" been treating you of late ? Sincerely I hope to catch up with you in Bangkok for a day on the river. Take care Melvin.

    ♤ Dave the Dude, Yorky or George: if you're reading this please assist Melvin with getting reconnected.

    Thanks

    260 hp

    its with the buider this week, investigating a small leakage
    struggling with some flaky electrical problems

    that struggling takes time, have severly screwed up a shoulder
    not sure I could even drive the boat right now (at least not without great pain)

    Yes. All three of the principle posters.

    An inclusive Old Boys' Club without any boys.
    Down to about 6 regular posters now

    The ones that are left seem to think that now their Admin has banned all those that don't fit into their Small Little Boys Club.........the members/posters of old will come back. !!!
    The joke is ......those old posters wont come back because of the one's that are left.

    But still their Admin and those members that can post say there isn't a problem

    Surin Farang Forum has issues for sure

    Issues ?

    Sounds like there's an ongoing technical or software problem.
    Surely proper diets and exercise , prescription medications (ie: erectile dysfunction meds) and mental health evaluations aren't involved in the continuing search for a solution, eh.

    I sure hope they can sort it out for the benefit of their "1,000+" members.


    Boloa, do your contacts know if they've decided to cull all non-active posters after one year without a post or has that proposal again gone by the wayside ?

    When Yorky made a cutting remark Ivor replied " It was just a talking point "

    Can't be arsed to search for the quotes but sounds like Ivor talking bollocks again or just an attempt by Ivor for some OAP Boy's Club bonding

    re sorted:

    fair to say no again I guess, received the following in response to my 3rd attempt
    at joining SF again;

    melvin, unfortunately, the account you registered on Surin Farang Community Forum did not meet membership requirements. Your account has been removed.
    Sorry.
    Surin Farang Community Forum



    so I should conclude that the locomotive driver does not approve of my humble self

    and prepare for a rainy season without the craic and the bleeding eggs

    I can't see why, I have never seen you post anything untoward's ........no response from the 'Contact Us' option I suggested !!

    In other news

    I see a sleeper has arisen....... 'ozibill' a member from since 2009 and made his first post yesterday with the normal friendly welcome from members

    I wonder how long it will be before he is banned from the Old Boys Club,no doubt Ivor will tell the members it's resent banned member, even though 'ozibill,s ' IP address could prove otherwise . More than likely one of Ivor's Multiniks from when the forum first started , Ivor likes to use these sleeper nik's of his to get the members is a state of paranoia, so feel they are being spied upon by lukers

    Just found out an old friend who has lived in Pattaya the last 15-20 years recently had a stroke. He's around 76-78 I think. As a result of the stroke his Thai wife has moved him to Surin.

    My understanding is he can't talk or eat very well and is wheel chair bound. Gotta be tough on the old bugger as he has always prided himself on his health and being so spry.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe he doesn't want his friends to see him the way he is and has decided to move somewhere quiet to spend the remainder of his time with his wife.

    Talking of somewhere quiet ...Surin Farang Forum has been dead for the last week or so with just the odd post that is more suited to a PM/Facebook than a Forum . I guess that the way they like it on there !!!

    I'm still able to log in but some of the pages are very slow to load ,same as other members have reported but as long and the half a dozen or so that actually use the forum are OK then there is no need to fix their Javascript problem with the forum !!

    ^ Maybe. Not sure. I'm in contact with his step-son. Going to try to help him get the paperwork done with the Veteran's Administration to pay for his college at Stamford.

    By the way I've mentioned this before but the old geezer taught his Thai step-son to speak and comprehend dang near native level English.

    Anyway, it appears my friend doesn't have any health insurance. So probably a lot cheaper to pay for it out of pocket out there in the sticks.
