Sorry for the delay. Nice to meet so many new (to me) faces at the GG. Here is the photo from my camera.

Bro Zamad,

You are fortunately too young to understand that the funny colour is called Sepia Colour and was the in-thing when everything was BW or grey.

My first computer monitor had white letters against a black background. When I changed to one that I could switch between green lettering on black and amber on black, I already felt very shiok. Too bad you missed all the simple pleasures in life.

Pity I was in Hat Yai and had to miss the GG. Next time...

No lah, Bro Alyem,

Didn't go to Phuket so don't have a chance to test out my Phuket map.

Even for Hat Yai, I was more intent on finding a few places that I die die must bring my wife so I did not have a chance to test out the Hat Yai map but I did record some tracks and POIs to hand over to the Hat Yai mapper when I get myself organised in the next few days.

The area where my hotel was (The Regency) is difficult to get satellite lock because of tall buildings and narrow streets and the Tuk Tuks will not wait for me to get lock and move so fast that by the time I get lock, I have arrived.

BTW, the Regency is terribly run-down and I would not recommend anyone to stay there.

I'm still young at heart. :) My first experience on the computer was with the PDP-11 with an 8-inch floppy! But at least I don't have to program Fortran using the card. In those days, a Sinclair ZX-81 with 1K RAM could do wonders.... Anyway, I thought that Uncle Wong forgot to switch the the sepia mode back to normal. :peace:
