Forums > Living in Kunming > Burning Trash

Is today (Tuesday, June 2) trash burning day in Kunming? This morning my neighbors in the xiaoqu next to mine were burning a huge trash pile sending massive amounts of wretched smoke into the air. I figured that can't be legal so I asked our bao-an if he could do something about it but he gave an unintelligible response. Then I got to Yun Da and it smells like burning trash here as well.

So is today the designated day to ruin the air with choking garbage smoke? If not, is burning trash illegal and how can we report it?

The problem is I am not going straight home. I am traveling and do not want to carry my computer with me.

Can anyone tell me what specific restrictions there are on shipping digital media from China? Will customs want to open and inspect any hard drives I try to ship? Or if they see a hard drive will they just toss it in a bin and not let it leave the country?

What about other courier services? If I ship my hard drives via FedEx, will they receive less scrutiny from customs or the same?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Shipping Computer from China to the US

I built a small media center PC here and would like to ship it back to the US when I leave. I checked with China Post but the lady working there didn't seem too tech savy and just kept saying I couldn't ship anything with a battery. I tried explaining that my computer does not have a battery but she just frowned and shook her head.... So has anyone ever shipped a computer out of China using China Post? Thanks!

Forums > Living in Kunming > Electrical Soldering

rejected_goods was right. I tried different solder, rosin, and soldering paste and I kept getting the same terrible joints. I finally tried using different wire and soldered a much better joint. So watch out for cheap wires! Anyone know how to tell the difference between high and low quality wire?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Electrical Soldering

Anyone here skilled at electrical soldering or know someone who is? I just need to solder a few wires together, nothing complicated.

For some reason, I cannot solder a good joint here. Back in the US I soldered a fair number of things on my own and had no problem. But here the solder just clumps to the wires in big globs rather than making a nice smooth joint. Is it just crappy solder? Tried buying some better stuff on taobao but no luck.

What is the best part of the lake for making a day trip? Looking for a relatively uncrowded nice stretch of beach to take a group of about 20 students. Proximity to a good restaurant and paddle boat rental a plus. Thanks!
