Please leave your reviews in the appropriate place within the listings section.

We are currently working on a brand new listings box for the homepage that will feature easy access to latest reviews, recently added listings and top rated listings in all the main categories. We hope to finalise and launch this new section within a week, although it still requires testing on the mobile version of the site.

Your external drive (WD) should have your Time Machine backups. I would strongly discourage you to use iPhoto or Aperture to manage your photos. They store your photos in special ways and make it hard to recover them when anything goes wrong.

Instead I would recommend to either use Photoshop or Lightroom, both Adobe software. The second being specialised in handling photographs and managing your image files.

I'm not sure how you deleted your photos (in finder or iPhoto), but you wouldn't be the first one to loose their pictures thanks to iPhoto hick-ups.

There's a pretty good Apple Center in the Golden Eagle next to H&M if you need professional (and usually free) help.

It sounds like you only want to restore one particular folder. In this case you should click on the Time Machine icon in the top menu (it's a clock with an arrow forming the circle shaped edge) and click "Enter Time Machine". This will show you Finder and a timeline to your right. Navigate to the folder that contains your photos and go 'back in time' to find the most recent backup that contains your deleted photos. Once found, right-click/control-click on the folder and use the restore function to copy it back.

Alternatively, you could do an entire system restore. This is only recommended if a lot is missing and restoring the folder doesn't fix your problem. A full system restore may take as many as 8 hours on older systems with a lot of data.

Let me know if the first method fixes it for you. I'm sure you can find images to guide you as well if you Google "restoring a folder with Time Machine".

You could catch the water in a bucket to use for a top-loader washing machine or to flush the toilet, while you're waiting for it to warm up.

@Sarah1988: It appears Geogramatt has already answered your question. My room in Puzhehei Village was very basic and 120 yuan a day, including three meals. You can spend several days there if you enjoy exploring the area, other than just visiting the regular tourist destinations.

@Bluppfisk: Thanks. :)

A global search function is coming soon.

@debaser: The search disappearing when changing sections is related to our top-down approach of how information is ordered. Does it feel unintuitive?

We are considering different views for the article section, with an option to see larger images. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by how Kickass Torrents arranges their forums. Could you elaborate?

@redjon77: Avatars will follow later as well.

@Ocean: We feel generally the search function is delivering more relevant results now. We'll keep testing and improving it though. Forums are tougher, because sometime threads may come up in top due to posts within the thread getting 'high scores' on your particular search query.

Alien: Each section has an improved search function in the top left. A global search function is coming soon!

Blobbles: Thank you for your constructive criticism. The listings will be back new and improved in the form of a homepage box later. We're also working on exactly the kind of search function in the top you are suggesting.

Regarding the search mechanism: We're partly performing searches as you're suggesting – ie combining full text searches with matching literal phrases (especially for titles). This means that if your search phase exists in the title of any entry it will be the top result. Breaking things down as you describe is definitely something to consider, but I tried to keep a reasonable balance between performance and relevance. I'm sure there's more optimisations to be made.

Regarding your sidebar design suggestion, I believe we're on the same page. We're working on a series of improvements and it may make it to the next update. Initially I was inspired by the usatoday.com website regarding sidebar design, but finally we decided to remove all shadows (flat design), which makes the sidebar look a bit 'off' to some.

Just found out a package I have been waiting for for more than a month arrived 3 weeks ago. Nobody bothered to call me (my phone number is on the box), or deliver the package. If you're expecting anything, make sure to call them every day, or, if you can, go there every day to make them check the tracking number.

Went there on New Year's and the place was packed with pro DJs playing in room 1. Downstairs is a great place to chill out if want a more relaxed vibe. They have a few things left to smoothen out, but otherwise this is as close as you're going to get to a western club experience in Kunming!

The Green Lake Moonlight Corner has always been a personal favourite for its atmosphere, location and good food. Recently had a chance to try the 'northern' incarnation at the brand new Xindu Longcheng shopping mall and wasn't disappointed.

Service, hospitality and food quality were all up to standards. I don't believe there's a better option for Thai food at the Beichen area.

Find the entrance on the side of the building that has the Uniqlo shop at the first floor.

Recently had two massages here – they're good if you ask them to go a bit softer on you. Also had a cupping (火罐) treatment which didn't do much for me at the time, but I've heard very good things about when done more frequently. A one-hour massage followed by another 15 minutes for the cupping cost 60 yuan altogether.

As mentioned before, they also still do foot massage.

Four stars thanks to friendliness and good value.

Still, after so many years, one of the best bars in town. Drinks are extremely reasonably prices compared to similar bars in Kunming, the place is spacious and well laid out and easily one of the best stages for live performances in Kunming.

Had dinner there a few days ago and as always very impressed with the Chinese food.

If the mix drinks would be a bit stronger and ventilation better the venue would easily get 5 stars.

A legend indeed.
