Plug crimpers? RJ45 connectors? CAT5+? b/g standards? I guess I've reached that age where I'd just call some guy to come set it up while I'm watching TV. Now get off my damn lawn!!

Oldish thread it seems, but always relevant. My Chinese wife swears to Ctrip. We must have ordered tickets at least 20 times over the past years and never had any problems. Just go for e-tickets and show your passport at check-in. If you want to wait for real in hand tickets it usually takes a while, but that's supposedly the case for all the net sites. Highly recommendable.

Let me be the first to offer a very sincere "Yawn" and a good luck with the project. I don't mind cycling per se but after having experienced traffic in China I would much rather donate to research into human teleportation so we can avoid spending time dodging cars and sidestepping scooters in the deadly chaos known as the Kunming streets. Can you imagine what it will be like in 5-10 years with their plans to make this a 10 million city without building a subway?

Never heard of "ECUM Coffee Group", made a quick search on some Danish websites,, no results and no companies with even remotely similar sounding names. Oh well,, that's 10 mins of my life I am never getting back.



Went there yesterday and it totally made my week. Nice decor and friendly staff and a real salad bar. Sadly we both wanted mexican food so I can't really say much about their other courses. The food was great but just a tad spicier would have improved the dish. The best thing was that we almost had the place to ourselves and we could have a quiet conversation without shouting, spitting Chinese people in the background. I realised how much I had missed that since coming here.


We went to Chicago Coffee a couple of days ago and it was a nice experience. The place is cozy with soft comfy chairs (I realized how much I have missed one since coming here) and they have a nice little collection of English language books in the corner consisting mainly of classics and travel litterature. I was looking forward to trying their advertized tortilla bar but it wasn't up and running that evening.

Instead we went for 2 12 inch pizzas -roast chicken and pepperoni- but we quickly realized that 1 would have been enough. Those things are heavy. I am mainly into Italian style pizza but Chicago's double layered pizzas are well worth a try. Their coffee seems to be a bit on the expensive side but people say good things about it and they have got a nice selection. I wouldn't mind dropping by again some day,, hopefully when they've got the tortilla thing going. English speaking staff btw.
