    Worried about the maid?

    Saw this article today, https://www.wired.com/story/snowden-haven-app-turns-phone-into-home-security-system/ In summary, it's about taking an old Android phone, like the one your TGF had last year but you already bought her a new one, and using it as a physical security device for a physical location. The problem is "The Evil Maid Attack". It's challenging to protect the security of your space from someone who routinely has allowed access to that space. In other words, hard to protect your stuff in your room from a maid, who has a key to your room, and is expected to spend routine time in your room, if she has less than honorable intent. Seeing how Mr. Snowden is an expat/exile on the run from US authorities for several years, he might know a thing or two about watching out for who's in his physical space. :-) 'Haven' is an android beta app designed to turn an old smartphone into a portable security system that will contact your current smartphone if it's disturbed. I haven't downloaded or installed it yet, but I do have an old Galaxy S5 sitting in a drawer since I upgraded to a Galaxy S8. I imagine I would have to get another SIM or something, but maybe not if it's workable on free wifi. It would be a whole lot more reliable if it had it's own internet data plan though. It's easy enough to figure out when the maid ~doesn't~ show up, since your new room guest has no fresh towels for her shower, but not so easy to tell if, or how many times someone may wander into your room if they don't make any obvious changes. I can see this as becoming quite popular with the Pacsafe crowd. :-)
  2. Facebook heeft een sluikse manier gevonden om onder de mom van “beveiliging” hun leden geld afhandig te maken. Toen ik mij laatst bij Facebook aanmeldde, kreeg ik een scherm met o.a. de volgende tekst: “Please complete a security check. Security checks help keep Facebook trustworthy and free of spam. Use a phone to verify your account The phone number you use can only verify one account. Once you enter your number, you'll receive a code that you'll be able to enter on Facebook to verify your account. Your phone number will only be used to verify your account and will not be shared with anyone without your consent. Enter a phone number”. Toen ik dan mijn Thais mobiel nummer invoerde en doorzond, kreeg ik een SMS, niet met een code maar wel met de volgende Thaise tekst: “คุณต้องการสมัครใช้ facebook security พิมพ์ F ส่งมาที่ 42665 เพึ่อขอรับ Code, ค่าบริการสัปดาห์ละ 9 บาท ใช้งานฟรี 7 วัน”. die blijkbaar betekent dat ik “F” naar het verkorte nummer 42665 van Facebook diende te Sms’en. Die “dienst” zou mij dan wel THB 9 (ongeveer EUR 0,23) per week of THB 470 (ongeveer EUR 11,75) per jaar gaan kosten. (Ik kan genoeg Thais lezen om 9 บาท = 9 baht en 7 วัน = 7 dagen te begrijpen en mijn vrouwtje kon alleen maar bevestigen dat ik het goed geraden had.) Bijgevolg ga ik vanaf vandaag Facebook boycotten.
  3. I recently visited a number of “gentlemen’s clubs” (Rioja, Jade Club, Kinnaree Place, Exotica, Sapphire Lodge). I understand the business model of gogos (not coyotes), beer bars and even freelancers, but it puzzles me what those overpriced “gentlemen’s clubs” are all about. All five places were all but crowded when I went there. The “girls” were average and rather old and there was no action, let alone nudity. I guess the “girls” are not employed, but freelancers and I don’t see the point to hire their services in “gentlemen’s clubs” if the same “girls” are also on Beach Road, on Walking Street and in discos. I wonder if they offer the same “security” as regular girls in gogos and beer bars and if they pass health checks.
  4. I plan on bring my laptop a Apple along with a Nikon DSLR camera. Besides common sense how "safe" is it to leave in my hotel room? I'd assume in this day and age people travel with these items all the time, but as we know this is LOS and I read about some crazy "do's" and "dont's" on this forum.

    Second joiner fees

    I always book a double room when in Pattaya so in a girl friendly hotel I am covered for one guest. On my last trip I brought two girls to reception at night to go to my room and deposit their ID cards. I was told that i would have to pay 300 baht for a second joiner to go to my room. I usually stay around Soi7 and Soi 8. Do any members know of hotels in this area and a little bit further from this area that do not operate a second joiner fee?
