Coups in Thailand used to happen on at regular intervals but it has been a while between drinks this time. I have looked at both the Bangkok Post and The Nation. Interestingly the Bangkok Post website seemed to be a simplified version earlier today. It is back to normal now, but slow. The Nation is a lite version too.
The better quality The Nation is working well in its lite version. If the above about the Bankok Post is correct, it seems a good way to manage a site when it is under extreme load.
