    @smc she won't if she uses it as I will chop them off!

      Help, my wife has bought a selfie stick with her!

        Started the journey to Wuzhen, a short break from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. I just hope it's a little cooler there!

          @matigo That fee is very convenient. Now we know the issue, when we can get the accounts active we will just setup some monthly transfers (which are free) between different banks….they can work for my money…suckers!
          paulgit
            So giving a UK bank your money and not touching it for over 18 months means your account becomes dormant, which means you cannot do anything with it online. The only real option is to pop into a local branch…tough when you live overseas. Useless.

              @matigo I love disappearing into my den now, it seems having a decent job and a bit of time to start sorting myself out (I still have much to do) life is somewhat enjoyable.

                The in-laws are here ready to look after Harry while my wife and I disappear for long deserved short break (first one together since moving to China almost 4 years ago). The only issue is they are watching ipTV movies and sucking up my bandwidth.

                  Wow! @nice_social looks fantastic full screen on my 27” Cinema Display! Good job @matigo

                    @pharsicle Better not buy anything from the Korean supermarket, even though it's not labelled as such it's still floor 4…..argggh! 😜 // @cgiffard @matigo

                      @matigo All this dev was under DOS….all the fun of extended and expanded memory etc // @cgiffard @keita

                        @matigo I don't recall the co-processor, but I do recall the time I has the fastest computer in the company as it was purchased on a project. A 386DX, the whole software department were envious of me! // @cgiffard @keita

                          @matigo In those days I was using the 8088 for cross assembly of 8051 assembler code. My first C coding was done on a super fast 286. Those were the days! // @cgiffard @keita

                            @matigo All that storage, what did you do with it. My first PC at work only had a 10MB MFM HDD….don't forget to park the heads before you shutdown! // @cgiffard @keita

                              Wow my computer can boot quicker than a .NET application can start. WTF MS? A 15 year old app written in C++ starts instantly. That's progress for you.

                                @yogimo in reality only one office is needed! 😜 @matigo

                                  @jodiem Mmm. I think I will give it a try with my work based stuff first before making the jump

                                    @smc That's a fair point, the web interface is a weak point. I just wish @1password would offer a better multi platform sync solution.
                                    paulgit
                                      I'm considering moving from @1password to LastPass as it appears to have a cross platform sync solution that will work in China something 1password does not have. Can anybody think of a reason not to (despite several years investment into @1password)

                                        Blue sky in Shanghai yet both Chinese and US authorities reporting bad air quality. I've no idea who to believe!

                                          @matigo yes, very big growth. We actually have 2 facilities now (one for manufacturing) but soon we will be under one roof. In 15 years I'll be happy to still be employed in China, if an office is involved then that will be a bonus! // @yogimo
