its all to do with that rather large meeting going on in beijing and not wanting to rock the boat. it'll be back to normal soon.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Wanted VPN

that is strange. i don't know why. perhaps you need to go over a vpn to pay for a vpn!

and its gone up, its now $129 per year.

i just submitted a ticket on their site asking why they no longer sell to people in China? I'll update when i get a reply

Forums > Living in Kunming > Wanted VPN

As well as multiple servers 12vpn has multiple protocols (PPTP, L2TP, IPSec, IK2Ev2 and OpenVPN) so its pretty much unbeatable. I've managed to use it over 2 mobile networks, all the fixed ISPs and over multiple devices.

Dave79, the visa is valid for 180 days each visit. so we do need to leave after 6 months (probably spend a weekend in hong kong) and then come back in for another 6.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Samsung vs Anycall

Actually Anycall is just the Samsung brand name for mobile phones in Asia. It has nothing to do with the radio technology inside or the network they have a partnership with. I've had Anycall branded phones that were GSM and WCDMA in the past.


Just check the specifications clearly before you buy.

Desktop site is looking great.

However the mobile site still doesn't work for webkit browsers such as iphone safari. I believe a lot of android phones also use webkit browsers. Text is just too small. If you could vary the font size depending on the browser that would be great. At the moment I can either view the really tiny text and strain my eyes or zoom in and have to scroll left and right to read every sentence.

Limiting the use of horn doesn't really solve the problem. drivers won't really understand why they aren't allowed to use the horn and will feel the new regulations are arbitary. they need to be taught that the horn is NOT a substitute for the brake nor is reaction a substitute for anticipation.

Basically they need to learn a totally different way of driving.

yeah, I was told once before that because that is the busiest time of the day it is preferable that neither of the 2 drivers gets it than one of them makes money instead of the other.

Of course this is nonsense as they could swap shifts at different times (before and after rush hours) on alternate days.

I hope this works. My wife told me she saw some news interviews with drivers who said that they will simply not stop at all, pretending they didn't see people, instead of stopping and then refusing a fare.

We'll see.

always amused to see the word "solicitor" used by a non-British English speaker. totally different meaning.
