Alien I sometimes get the error message "file is locked by another user" when using Word. It invariably turns out that I have clicked on the file too enthusiastically and opened it twice. I then need to close one of the copies before I can save the other. You may not be as careless as me but it's worth a try.

Anyone have recent experience of getting books delivered from overseas Amazon and other sites? I tried and gave up a few years ago when some books didn't arrive. Was never quite sure why.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Air Quality!!! Kunming Not So Good.

@alien Did you mean to say Kunming is at 1000 meters or have I misunderstood you? It's actually nearer 2000 meters. The internet says it's just shy of 1900 meters and my GPS tells me I'm at 1940 meters - admittedly I'm up a hill near the top of a tower block.

As to air quality, my feeling is it's getting a lot worse. Last week I returned from a trip to Beijing where the air is much improved. If anything the air seemed worse here. Just subjective I know but too many cars, too much construction and all those huge trucks carting the earth away must be having an effect.

Have it your way. There were no disposable nappies when I was a kid - and precious few washing machines - but nobody died. If you bought food it was wrapped in brown paper and carried home in a shopping bag. But go ahead and destroy the planet for the sake of convenience.

Great location and music. The food is always a well thought out mix of flavours - the French apple tarts are to die for. Wonderful place to relax and let a sunny afternoon melt into a warm evening.

Nice bar. The Spanish guy is really friendly but I haven't seen him for a while

Isn't Subway for people who don't really like food but realize they have to eat from time to time?
