    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 ;)

        Apple Music is working well here in China!

          I am having a spate of loosing padlocks for luggage. I have lost one on each of my last two trips. I have no idea what I am doing, I think I need a better solution.

            @ludolphus maybe a bit late for me, maybe tomorrow is a better option when the servers have cooled down @infodriveway

              @infodriveway I'll try and stay awake!

                Isn't Apple Music released today? Still no sign of iOS 8.4. Looks like I'll get it a day later than most, serves me right for living in the future compared to Cupertino!

                  @matigo we actually had a dog with us! There are pubs at all the locks so you can get fed easily or you can take your own food and cook on the boat. I really want to do it again.

                    @matigo indeed. The best vacation I had was just before moving to China on a narrow boat along the Grand Union Canal in England. Very relaxing. I slept like a baby!
                    paulgit
                      @matigo you could be right! Perhaps I should not be planning a vacation in Asia then!
                      paulgit
                        @matigo Wow, I don’t think I could survive with 5.5 hours sleep! I need to get about 8 hours, but I have a lot of hours to catch up on. I basically need a relaxing vacation.

                          @matigo I’m suffering from lack of sleep. Fortunately I don’t have to work today so I think it’s a hotel day.
                          paulgit
                            @matigo have not noticed that, but I could swear my system boots in less than 20secs. I will measure it out of interest tonight

                              @remino I have seen this too, but figured it was due to the proxy software I was running. I noticed it's more of an issue after the MBP has been to sleep

                                @rabryst I have 6 digit PIN numbers on all my cards on China! Drive me crazy at first but it's ok now, I remember them all!
                                paulgit
                                  @matigo working well has a different meaning in China! ;)

                                    Heading back on the road again, possibly for 4 weeks so I have MacBook Pro with me. Travelling with two computers is cumbersome but my Lonely evenings in my hotel room will be more enjoyable, as long as my hotel internet connection works well.

                                      Mmm, I have found a VPS in HK which has decent connection speed to mainland China. I may give that a go as a proxy. I think I need to move some websites elsewhere so I don’t have to keep moving them when I need to change server to use as a proxy.

                                        @matigo something better than, I used to get 1Mbps on a regular basis through my server in Japan but now it's about 40Kbps. Internally in China I can max out at 100Mbps!!!!!
