    @matigo I see. I have to question everything these days, you can never be too sure what is the China effect and what's not!

      I wonder why hAppy works quickly on my iPhone/iPad yet Nice.Social doesn't? I thought it was a GFW thing but now I'm not sure.

        Thunder, rain and I was hoping for a long walk with the dogs later.

          Wow, it’s so hot and humid today. I have been left in charge of the dogs. Their walks are timed from the point I leave home to the point my clothes are soaked with sweat.

            @snrkl I used to be a regular contributor but stopped when I moved to China as I had no easy way to fund it. Now I am all set up. If I can dig out old receipts from other email address I think I can be knighted! Been a listener since episode 1! @noagenda

              Interesting, I can access DuckDuckGo.com in the new Shanghai office however it is still blocked via China Unicom on my iPad/iPhone. I wonder if it will remain unblocked or if the GFW will fill the hole!

                Dear Nanchang West Station. It's 6:15 and nothing is open to buy breakfast, let alone a coffee. How can I survive the day?

                  @yogimo I have a nice machine in Shanghai. Looking forward to being reunited with it this weekend!
                  paulgit
                    Taxis start at 6RMB in Nanchang compared to 14RMB in Shanghai!

                      Traffic is horrendous in Wuhan. I will be leaving 3 hours before my train leaves for Nanchang and the journey should only take 50 minutes. Let's hope I make it! First some last minute packing and breakfast!

                        I have packed most of my suitcase (everything except for the gadgets I am using). Sadly I'm not heading home to Shanghai, but instead I will be taking the high speed train to Nanchang for about 10 days or so.

                          @smc I guess this goes to show that Ethernet connectors are fundamentally not robust for multiple insertions etc.
                          paulgit
                            @smc so do I, but in this place the other end disappears into a wall directly and not via a socket!

                              Has anyone ever been to a hotel where the connector the Ethernet cable is not broken? Mine keeps falling out of my wireless access point. It be driving me crazy.

                                I finally managed to make it into the shower, eyes are very tired. I would love to go for a long walk but the heat and humidity here in Wuhan is unbearable. I may try again mid afternoon in the hope that it cools off a little.

                                  @matigo I did that already! :) maybe it's time for round 2! :)

                                    Trying to get myself out of bed but feeling far too tired!

                                      Working yet another weekend when I should have been travelling home to see my family. Brain is running on about 2 cylinders right now. Just too tired.

                                        So I can access Apple Music Radio Stations via my UK iTunes account whilst in China, but I cannot play Beats 1 unless I use a VPN. Not that I am that bothered because some of the DJs they hired annoy me and don't play music I like.

                                          @mttmccb ha ha, not had an issue since signing up. Perhaps Apple prioritise feeds for those of us living in their largest market ;)
