Re: Cambodia now connected to Thailand by rail.

i dont see why a rail link between bangkok and poi pet will increase tourism, it will be slower than a current bus and the ones that can afford it, fly over direct to SR or PP I'd much rather catch a train than a bus. Get up and stretch your legs, possible onboard food, possibility of a smoke for s...

Re: Cambodia now connected to Thailand by rail.

So how will trains to BKK work? Swap to a Thai train at the border? If Cambodian trains run all the way they're going to need sleeper cars. Even the trip to SHV is uncomfortable in those little seats after a couple of hours.

Re: Will the £ ever equal $?

I'd prefer the AUD to stay over 75c tbh and atm it's looking good for the first time in a month. It could go to78-80c but later if the US increases interest rates it won't last. Any particular reason why (if I'm right thinking it will be worse for Australians)? I was reading some economist outlooks...

Re: Will the £ ever equal $?

It is kinda funny though. Brits all precious about the pound all this time, refusing to go with the Euro, and the moment they quit the EU the bottom drops out of it. Poetic really.

Re: Will the £ ever equal $?

AU $1 was worth more than US $1 two years ago. Now lucky if it hits 75c. Trump's media conference last week helped though.

Re: Difference between Linux and Windows

Linux Mint and Ubuntu (among others) are very similar to Windows. I use Mint on my netbook because it's more lightweight than the Windows 7 that it came with.

Re: Pass words.

It's surprising that there are forums/databases/systems out there that still let people choose passwords like 123456 or 'password' - you would expect them to require you to choose a password that's at least eight characters and include a combination of upper and lower case letters and at least one n...
