News:

This is still mainly a testing forum; at the moment I cannot guarantee that it will remain; the software is a release candidate (RC3) only.

After I upgraded to SMF 2.1 RC3 the pretty URLs mod needed to be installed new. Looked like no problem. But them the whole page went missing.

Ok, so I will run the backup from a few days and re-install the upgrade again.

Please hang on!

Wow, they managed to develop SMF 2.1 further. Now it's at the release candidate 3, that means, it might get near the final version not so many years from now. :)

Expat-Life Advice / What happens to the visa when ...

On Korat-Info that question has recently been asked, when somebody had found out, that he was all of a sudden on overstay in addition to his mourning, though he had gained a residence permit based on his marriage to a Thai. According to Thai law all privileges based on his marriage to a Thai vanished, when she died

Others confirmed knowing of cases, where this led to problems; one reported of a suicide due to that situation even. The best solution is to not trust in a marriage visa, if there is another way like a pensioner visa.

In the case discussed, the foreigner had built a house, which fell to the deceased wife's Thai children. He had reserved the right to live in that house and make use of it for life. His step-children stand by that.

It has not been confirmed yet, but can be thought, that this right might also have monetary value for getting a pensioner visa now: for one it saves him the rent, if he lives in it himself. If he can rent to somebody, it might bring him income to his pension. Depends upon how the immigration complies etc.

Usually the Thai wife is a lot younger than the foreign husband, but that is no guarantee for her not deceasing before him due to accident or illness.

This brings the consideration which visa to get to a whole new point one should think about!

This board has just been re-opened for some testing to be done. What testing in detail? As there is not a better version or the forum software yet, the testing will have to do something to do with S.E.O. Of course I won't explain it in detail, because I want to see reactions.

Former British police worker falls to his death from fourth floor apartment in Thailand 'while urinating from the balcony after drinking at karaoke bar'

Stuart Railton, 54, fell to his death from a fourth floor flat while reportedly urinating from the balcony after a night out

A former police worker plummeted to his death from a fourth floor flat while reportedly urinating from the balcony after a night out.

Stuart Railton, 54, returned to his apartment after visiting his favourite karaoke bar in Udon Thani, northern Thailand, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The former accountant for the Lancashire Constabulary is believed to have lost his balance while trying to urinate and plunged over the railing of the balcony, which was littered with empty beer bottles. .

Security guards at the 'Top Mansion' apartment block heard a loud thud after he plunged from his room. His body was found at 4.45am local time.

Police searched the room and discovered empty beer bottles, two bottles of 'unknown medicine' and a pool of urine on the balcony.

Security guard Pichit Burawad, 44, said: 'We heard a loud noise and thought a signboard had fallen off.

'On the ground of the parking area, we found the body of a foreigner.'

Forensic officers found Stuart in a pool of blood while police who checked the room said there was no sign of a struggle.

They said he suffered a fractured skull, neck, and left arm.

Mr Railton had moved to the country a year ago after leaving Lancashire Constabulary, according to his Linkedin profile

Pol Lt Ginyotin Sapsin, from Mueang Udon Thani Provincial Police Station, said that they had questioned staff who told them that Stuart regularly visited the karaoke bar.

Pol Lt Ginyotin Sapsin, from Mueang Udon Thani Provincial Police Station, said that they had questioned staff who told them that Stuart regularly visited the karaoke bar.

He added: 'On the day of the incident, Mr Railton came back alone from the bar at around 03:20 and went up to his room as usual.

'We inspected room 420 on the fourth floor where Mr Railton had been staying.

'We believe that the deceased was drunk and fell while he was urinating on or from the balcony.'

Pol Lt Ginyotin said that two bottles of the unknown medicine collected from the fridge had been taken for examination.

He added: 'We're going to send the bottles to the lab to determine what kind of medicine it contains.'

Stuart describes himself as an accountant who worked in various finance departments at Lancashire Constabulary between November 1998 and December 2015.

He wrote on LinkedIn that he was 'seeking permanent or contract work in Thailand' and he had previously taken 'voluntary redundancy'.

And I thought, Manneken Pis was a bronze statue in Brussels. But maybe that appartment just didn't have a toilet. Still no pleasure for people living beneath and getting a shower, when the wind changes the direction of that liquid jet. Disgusting!

Expats' Home Connection / Happiness in Europe again?

BJ was lucky enough to get his majority, the Pound jumped, the Euro jumped even more, but the Dollar got to a new low yesterday, of which it recovered some today. Who won, who lost? Nobody yet! Time will tell how things will go on. Many people are sceptic about "the soon "new order" in Europe - without the nagging Brits always demanding an extra deal! Unity recovered.
