I did try askubuntu.com, still awaiting response. I really would like someone to look at it though, since I am basically the opposite of a computer expert, and I don't think I could understand many solutions they may offer.
For example, I don't know what a "kernel" is outside of the context of corn, and I don't know what a live cd is or how I would go about downloading it from Ubuntu.
How can I learn what version I have now and which I upgraded? Since the upgrades are automatic I don't know. How can I figure that out?
I'm having some pretty serious issues with my current version of Ubuntu after my last automatic upgrade. Does anyone know anything about Linux? I need help urgently! I can't find my wireless connections and I can't play my music!
Does anyone know where to get untreated wood? I'm looking to build a bee box, and bees don't like plywood or chemicals in their house. I have all the tools I will need (or my roommates do), just need some wood. Any info would be good. And I am aware of the existence of the internet, taobao, etc so no need to mention that. Thanks!
Hi, I'm coming to Kunming from January 23-30, I live in Chongqing where people don't ride bikes, so I'm very interested in doing a 3-4 day bike trip in Yunnan. Where's the best place to start? Where's the best place to go? I can take a bus to another city from Kunming if there's a better starting point. I'm in decent shape, though I haven't ridden a bike seriously in like 8 months since I've been in CQ. Any info or tips would be great!
My favorite venue in town hands down. Nice big open place, courtyard, big stage, cheap drinks. Sunday afternoons here are my favorite, BBQ and live music. Highly recommend for Sunday afternoons and shows.
Lovely restaurant with top-notch service and fantastic food. I love all the beets, avocados, brussels sprouts, asparagus, quinoa, and tempeh. At first glance of their new menu I was overjoyed to see so much deliciousness, then nearly passed right out from elation when I noticed most of it is vegan! In all seriousness though I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Highly highly recommend!
Best pizza in town. Slice of Heaven's a close second, and a better value on their 20kuai pizza Fridays, but overall taste and selection goes to Lost Garden, hands down. I went there for the 3rd or 4th time for the pizza night last week. We sat on their roof terrace, which has been re-done very nicely since the last time I was there. The service was reasonable, and the waitresses even spoke some English! On a previous visit I had a pumpkin soup and a baked pasta, both delicious and well-presented. Anecdote: I was there once on a cold day a couple of months ago and the foreign manager (owner?) made my friend and I hot toddies upon request, even though they're not on the menu, and they were pretty much perfect. I have nothing negative to say about this place.
I ate here a couple of weeks ago and was thoroughly impressed. The place is huge, for starters. The outside patio is lovely and beautifully designed, and is the best place for a party or event I've seen in Kunming. The food was delicious, authentic, and well-presented. Except the ceviche. That was a bit disappointing, since the main ingredient seemed to be canned tuna rather than shrimp, octopus, squid, etc. But the tacos, guacamole, queso fundito, and flan (and I'm sure we got something else too but I can't remember what it was) were are amazing. Well worth it, and the prices weren't as high as they're made out to be. Pretty reasonable really, for what you're getting. Looking forward to a return visit.
