Once you get outside the major cities it does seem like a 3rd world country. I loathe the Chinese city culture, especially where it is directed at tourists. The money grabbing is just so aggressive and really in your face.
Yunnan on the other hand was fabulous, the people are not focused on extracting every penny from the tourist like most places.

Close to me; sort of. I'm currently on holiday in central Thailand. I know VPNs are illegal in China, but did you consider using Tor? I've been using Tor for accessing sensitive websites or websites that are only accessible in America. Tor is very slow, though.
well evening started of fighting outlook interop in a detaching/archiving app.
in short: some code that failed testing a message ref, adding a call to the output a "." to the log file straight after the failing line fixed it(???), replaced that with a sleep - broken again, replaced that by testing the reference for != null [that wasn't the error and it'll never be null to have got this far anyway] fixed it again (???)
okay... (remembered the boy scout motto: sure way to break a working camp fire is try and improve it.)
figured only way to cap off that weirdness: binge watch the new Twin Peaks (S3).
(and in the meantime the apps been burning through a [smaller] 40GB pst for 3.5 hours without hiccup [yes it's slow - it's running and a clients non-SSD machine].)
Do not switch off your computer.
Well my evening started by having to emergency-defrost my fridge after not shutting the freezing compartment door properly before going out and when I returned I couldn't close it because too much ice had built up..

Nope, you will have to watch the video until its very end, and take profit of the fact that MP4 videos are automatically rewinded once they have been watched.
And I've read on Mp4VideosFacts that trying to rewind a video before it has been fully watched can dramatically damage the bytes of which it is composed. Better safe than sorry, so.
