Hi Jivvy. ASEAN has had a thread 'for sale' for some months. No takers. It's a very active site - e.g. 500 ? posts about the coming tax or not on 1st Jan. I'm guessing they missed a payment re. software and it'll be back soon. Or not.

CK ? Interested ?

Definitely not! That there were no takers speaks volumes.... Or perhaps it was sold - would anyone know? It's not likely an 'under new management' post would appear.

Hi CK - "Definitely not!"

Somehow I expected that. ATB   ;)

From their Facebook Post:

Dear users, we are in the process of migrating ASEAN NOW to a new more powerful cloud server with bigger capacity, as we are growing and need more power.
We will be back online after maintenance move by end of this week.
Sorry for the inconvenience !

Cheers Eagle - I was missing chatting with the Guy with no grid electricity but solar cells and 2 electric cars, using his cars to power the house at night. So ASEAN will be back which is good. Thanks.

(btw that was 'Bandersnatch')

Cheers Tiggs - I must say I often wondered how ASEAN was financed as I don't see any commercial advertising at all - (but I have a 'blocker' on). In the Reddit comments someone says the Owners paid THB 30,000,000 and wanted THB 8,000,000 for it now - I thought it was someone's hobby   ::)

CK - a bargain ?

Overall I thought it a very useful source of alerts, tips, help and discussion, although some threads and many comments were pathetic to the point of dismay.

I'll miss it. (BTW - this looks ok https://thailand-247.com/ )

Who is the 'George' that owns it? I recall it being sold by the original owner years ago, and he then relocated to Hua Hin, he opened a bar restuarant along from the Hilton in the centre of town, called uninspiringly 'Thai Visa'. That went and is now known as 'Busy Bee'. I assumed he had sold it.
