Otis,
Why take off the wheels of the bikes, that's too much like hard work....clamp them with a chain and padlock. If there are two or three offenders, clamp them together, then go for a drive for a few hours and take the key. Make sure you don't have bolt cutters laying around though.

Wife reported that y'dy she take in 600tb from her inet cafe n copy service. Looks like she will recoop her 9k tb computer investment b4 z novality wears out. when started her copy service was a big rush of customers, y'dy only 40b from copy service. Was another 60b from snacks n noodles. Uh forgot need deduct 150tb for baby sitter but still looks like she have + cash flow as i not charge her for electrical costs of fan, lights, and computer energy. But if ebill exced 2500tb there will be a surcharge levy to her but schhhhhh for now

today re-running lan cables for wify inet cafe computers. Her 1st run was just thru doorway to old guest bedroom (now inet cafe) & when door closed lan cables get smashed. This entailed drilling/punching holes in wall below beam but above suspended ceiling. Had only 1 masonary bit that was good for pilot hole & rest done with variety wood working tools (whch need retipping doubtless after doing masonary work). Lan cable head bigger n cable so pilot needed reeming out.
Asked here get a local for last 2 days so she finally get her father agree to do in evening- nogood 4 business as students come then so worker of last resort pulled from uv water job.
Now is some local competition for inet cafe business so afternoon last thing needed to assure some customers go another place. During last 10min of job have customers come. I give em bag o chips to munch whilst completing job sorta. Still need cleaning n put back tiles. Was v suprised to get 2 students this early.
After chill down then is back to uv water job.
Get xtra incenative this a.m. when wify say water man charge 2tb for missing caps on small wasser bottles.

yesterday made the tb 600 diesel run to mai sai at behest of visa dept to get my #2 one year visa (in 1 year) only to be told by same clowns come back next month. They previously told wife i needed to come yesterday. These are same clowns that processed me a non multi x-entry when being told every time i c them. 'i have no need for 1 yr visa, if it were not multi exit entry as would be off to usa shortly'. After airport entry showed visa stamp was not multi x/n then i go back to ask clowns what is up? Only to be told the multi x/n window is an arms' length away. Real class act that crowd. i doubt they could pour water out of a bucket if instructions were posted on outside bottom.

today is a good day to post from my n95mini via gprs as electric power just throwed the 1 per 2 week wobbler. Must be our cell tower is on another grid, payaou province, chang kham district not chaing rai thoeng district.
Will wash down with towel n some uv purified water as water pump is also out for the power wobbler.
Was notifier of power wobbler in middle of loading programs for wify new inet cafe computer. Seems she now up to about 16 weeks to recover her investments (if business doesnt decline) as she purchase a 4th computer. Yesterday she take about 200tb & weekends run about 1k tb for total 2ktb/week but hope the new machine gives her a boost. My opine was go used machine but hae money n mind o her own she gets new machine, which in my mind is just longer payout nothing more nothing less. Well she did get new desk also. So now have 4 workstations for her students. She was no so happywhen informed of her share for last months ebill for no terrible reliable electrical service. Well its' off to the wash & a good dayto 1 & all who read this little blog.

Otis,
Now I would have thought that you of all people would have a back-up generator. You know the type, just plug it into the wall socket after throwing the mains. Would be more than enough to run the 4 computers, fridge and fans for the time the grid is down. Just put the whole thing on the wife's "to pay" bill.
