    Webex will let you have side chats with other attendees (not talking, typing). Just make sure you double check as in my last meeting someone mistakenly put something in the general chatroonm instead of the private one they clearly intended it to be in!


    I while on this thread, I will have my daily moan - fuck - my missus spends a lot of time watching fucking soaps on TV. Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese. I think she puts in a solid 8 to 10 hours a day on it.

    WeBex is good, as is Zoom. Have your company never heard of them?
    I have a two-day workshop via WebEx as of tomorrow . . . it's not bad once you get used to it.

    Yup - quite handy . . . or just use whatsapp on the side


    "handy"? That's very German of you

    ^^^ That makes me very happy... as my missus only spends maybe 4 or 5 hours a day on soaps and I thought she had a problem.

    She needs to keep at least another 4 hours free to watch crap on Facebook!

    ^ Mendip, you should start a series for TV...."The Mendips", i reckon Thais would be fascinated, some episodes involving scenes in the office will obviously have to air after the watershed.

    Thanks for that info, I didn't know. Is it made available by the chairman of the meeting. I didn't see any controls on the (free) WebEx personal, I downloaded just for the meeting.

    They have, but it is installed on their Company laptops, which I don't have in Thailand. It took a long time before they allowed me to join a remote meeting due to location.

    Not allowed on their company laptops. I have been telling them to use WhatsApp to call/message me but they won't do it.

    Managing a build from afar....exactly how does 15M become 14M

    and the response that it'll be cheaper isn't the first one you'd be happy with.

    ^^^^ That's an idea... but my life in Korat isn't anywhere near as glamorous as I make out. It's been a while since I've had any serious time alone in my office.

    But... my moan is this... I'm doing a roast chicken right now ( yes, me... not the missus...) and I went to my last pack of Paxo sage and onion stuffing, and it's bladdy well full of ants and gone to powder. How do they get into sealed, unopened plastic sachets, the barstuards?

    Thai soaps are gateway, after a while you need more to maintain the same high; mine has swept through Korean and Jap and now feeding on Indian, defcon 4, you really don't want that!

    I think we had this one before, they enter the food chain at factory level, lay eggs that get packed in with the rice, hatch, and can't believe their luck.

    Syb, just move on. I know you are a bit upset with me after yesterday and raising the issue of how boring you are but in Reacharound's teens speak Own It. You've found someone who can put up with you so you should be happy.

    Nope, The Mrs is building a set of 5 "Rooms" as they like to call them, single store "apartments" i suppose is the nearest we'd call them. She has 3 other lots of them and they provide a steady stream of income, part of her retirement plan.

    I was going to be there for the setting out to check the position, alignment etc as the shape of the land is a bit awkward and Thais and geometry don't mix well imho. She was going to kick this off last year but waited and has lucked out as the prices of materials has dipped significantly. She's using a contractor she's used before for Nr Korat quote for labour is 330K THB and the project is due under 800K, ROI is c8-9 years so not bad.

    I was going to do a thread on it but TBH i can't be fuk'd - anyway Reachy will be along with input from the BiL shortly.

    Nah. She does the thai ones as well. She watches the asian ones with subtitles. I drop down and she is watching programs in japanese, korean, chinese. To be honest, i did not know she could read thai. Nice lass, but dumb as a plank.

    Indeed, you have to look at the main perpetrators and nip t in the bud.
    Instead you choose to persecute the victims rather than lose face?

    You mean between raking in dead fish from an algae-blocked pond to dressing up your dogs according to your fantasies?
