I ran ridiculously hot when ofdabeat was sweating me. I would say things like "ok, now all I need to do is turn my set" and it would happen. It was actually kind of eerie.

Neteller SUPER UBER BAD (If you attempt to login to an account from a Thai ISP Security will lock ur acct)

holy [censored], thanks for the heads up.

Party BAD (IE blocked)

[/ QUOTE ]

PARTY: I played at party when I was in patong earlier this year(march). It worked then but it lagged. Then I heared it was blocked in pattaya, thats why I added the 'where they work' part. But I would trust teabag and not go down there with any money on your account.

ONGAME: I couldent logg on, the tables dident appear(betsson). According to the support on a smaller skin the website should be blocked but you should have access to the tables. This is the opposite of what i experienced.

FTP: Their clients where everywhere on the cafes.

WhoIam, ok thnx. Im heading up to Vientiane in early 2008, anything else then 'play on Ipoker- keep money on Moneybookers' I need to know?
Is Laos as simple as thailand to travel in? It seems like a hot place to be at atm. I like Thailand but its getting a bit wornout and its always good to experience something else..

[/ QUOTE ] It can be almost impossible at times to find a usable internet connection at public places. Assuming you have a laptop, you can get a reliable connection at Joma (Vientiane's version of Starbucks) but you have to pay roughly $2/hr. This is 4-5x what you would pay in an internet cafe. If I'm still here in '08, you can play at my house in exchange for some beer or coaching if you play higher than I do.

There are plenty of buses and inexpensive flights between the major areas of Laos. The country is a lot more spread out than Thailand.

How did you find a safe and reliable place to stay for the long term?
Did you visit Thailand regularly before making the move?
Do I need a buddy to visit for about a month or is going by oneself viable?

Loads of places, very easy to find an apartment long term hotel.

I did, most people i know did it too.

Do I need a buddy to visit for about a month or is going by oneself viable?

If your question is : it is user friendly enough? i'd say yes.
