No actually all online computers have a IP. There's a lot number assigned to your service provider and one of those numbers becomes yours. Just like a phone number. Even if you go to a WiFi (Starbucks etc) your number comes up so this is who they charge for the air use. The ones sitting outside libraries have IP numbers too. It's just stolen so not traceable to them. But if it was banned they have to steal another. Moving or using a different service changes the IP. Bouncing is another but your paying several services for this in several countries, a scammers favorite.

Thinking ahead to when I go to meet Ming in Feb...

I now use my home computer (fixed) for the Forum. When i go to China I will use my laptop and hook into the Hotel internet.

Will I be a ble to log in here with a different computer...because I might need some help/advice/bragging space:icon_cheesygrin: during my visit

Please excuse if this is a dumb question....my computer literacy is pretty basic !!

Yeah David, I logged in from China while at the hotel in August.  It's fine.  I had to remember my password though, which was difficult since it keeps me logged in all the time here.

I thought everbody used the same password "Dumplings"

Ya Neil I had the same problem when last over. But now my wife's laptop has it saved and she even once posted here under my name. She also saw a picture she didn't like that I posted and asked me to remove it. Oh the joys of being married.

I could access this group from Guangzhou, but not from Zixing in Hunan province.

I could log into here in Hubei Provice (obviously). The official site is different if you visit from China, that threw me for a few minutes.

I would like to announce that we have added a new Mod for this group.  ttwjr32 was asked if he wanted to be a mod, and he has accepted.  So lets go easy on him, while he figures out his new role here.

Oh my God - (Sorry is that classed as religeous or what.)   Figure out his new role? - does he even know he is in China?
Ted now a mod.  It like suggesting that Mao should be Pope.  I had no idea how low this group has sunk LOL :icon_cheesygrin:.   (How many points so far- lets see....)

Ok a few more to go.  As he is my son am I allowed to say that I will come over to GZ and give him a good thrashing if he gets his spelling wrong. (Must be half way now up the points ladder now).

Seriously - cannot think of a better man for the job.  He must have met more brothers than any other.  He  has hidden depths - Well they are there somewhere under that 215 lbs (your kidding Ted or are they US pounds?)

 He should be Brotherhood Ambassador in China - OR BACman for short.  

He has made some good contacts in GZ.  Good on yer Cobber.  Good for you mate. Well done Old Chap. Proud of yer Son.  Perhaps I am speaking for us all here.

Willy

You vote me to be banned and I'll tell Sisi on you!!!!!!

Congratz Ted.  You're a good man and deserving.

First order of business might be helping Willy get all his eggs in one basket. :icon_cheesygrin:

Well done Ted.

Second order of business - find me a new lady. She must like wearing long knee socks, t shirts with bears on and eating at McDonalds. She must not have a sick mother or like shopping in boutiques :icon_cheesygrin:.

Do you have those tough Hakka women in GZ? When I was in Hong Kong I was astounded by this road repair bloke carrying a huge paving slab down the road, then I realised it was a woman :icon_cheesygrin:!

But yes, if you know of any cuties in the 28-32 age bracket (er, 21-32 would also be OK) then send me their QQ details. I think moving to your neck of the woods is feasible for me in a year or two. The motherland is nearly bankrupt so it would be good to get out. I know it gets hot there but I honestly felt 10 years younger in Hong Kong :icon_cool:.
