    1. Talen personally I try to avoid buying pirated stuff but its difficult here. You only need to take your computer to the repairers to find they have loaded you a few “extras!”

      Tigers are a special animal for me, I am pleased Thailand is joining in but sadly the wild Tigers here roam in the border region(near me) with Myanmar and poaching is still a problem.

      I still remember the excitement(dropped the camera lens) when I was in India and spotted a wild Tiger in a conservation area.

    2. Before high speed internet was available in my area Pattaya was my favorite source for the latest in movies, operating systems and programs. There used to be a great store on Second Road just down from Pattaya Tai – you walk in and browse through their catalog of software and the next day you go back and pick up your selections. Now all this is just a Torrent away.

      Shopping is a lot of fun in Pattaya – I can’t tell you how many “Rolex” watches I have given away for Christmas presents.

      Who will be speaking at that Thai high school next week – Jesse Ventura ??

    3. Talen, Pantip Plaza is indeed a lark. All through the complex there are HUGE signs warning against pirated software – and nearby those… pirated software. Heaps and heaps of the stuff.

      The main difference I see between Thailand and other countries is that here, the piracy is in your face. Other’s go out of their way to hide but it’s still there (just online).

      The tiger in Thailand subject is an interesting one (thanks for posting about it).

    4. Talen you’ll probably be pleased to hear I’ve never heard of Oliver Stone as I’m not a big watcher of movies, though I do recall a fit lass called Sharon, any relation.

      Pirated goods are a big problem but when the originals are so far out of reach pricewise to the ordinary Thai person then the problem isn’t going to disappear. I also think with the strong Thai baht getting my cheap T-shirts and shorts makes Thailand an attractive holiday proposition as far as money goes.

      Tigers…that’s sad. From a population of 100,000 to under 3,500 makes me think that even the doped tigers of Kanchanaburi’s Tiger Temple are at least safe from the crosshairs, even if their lives aren’t exactly as they should be.
