The 3-entry rule for Thailand (90 days per 6 months) no longer exists and anyway only applied to visa-exempt entries back then. You'll be able to get proper Thai tourist visas in neighboring country Thai consulates at Penang, KL, Kota Bharu, Phnom Penh, and Vientiane no problem. But as you seem to know it's only a 15-day entry if you enter by land without a visa (permitted your nationality qualifies - US/UK/AU etc). Play the game properly and you'll be good to go.
