I really don't know much about politics, but I just have a "gut" feeling about the 45th President. I think that he will put everything into it and will genuinely try to do what is best for the Country and its people. bfbfbfbfbf  I wish him all the best! agagagagag agagagagag

iMac 27 5K

Or perhaps merely a Thunderbolt? (Why did Apple get out of the monitor business anyway?)

That's a helluva price premium right there tho

 The Fusion Drive and 3Gb hard drive and AMD Radeon R9 Graphics Display card, are more than worth the price of admission. Fusion Drive itself, is genius No tinkering necessary.

The BS-Wrestling Pit / The next phase of development: the enviornment
« Last post by Calach Pfeffer on Yesterday at 08:38:05 AM »
Getting rich was glorious, the economy has boomed, Chinese have been to space. Japan is not yet conquered but you won't have that without a war, so the next phase of development in China - the phase by which Chinese success can properly be judged - is environmental. Beat that, and you beat the West.

Why not give him a chance?
I had no faith in Obama and thought he was lane but he turned out to be better than I thought even though I still think he wasn't great.

I much happier to give him a chance while being safely at home in the Big Silly.  I'm not so sure how some of those I left behind feel.

Pharmacies are very prolific in HK.  I'm not sure how they'd react to a prescription from elsewhere, but there's only one way to find out.  Also, if the first one rejects you, it never hurts to try a second.

Assuming pharmacies do reject you, I would bet that at least some pharmacies could refer you to a doctor.  My one medical experience in HK was much more like the US than China.  I had to go see a doctor (who had a fully separate office) to get a referral in order to get checked in to a hospital.  A dear friend made the arrangements, so I still don't know how to find a doc in HK all by myself.

I was getting a little worried, so sent my lovely wife down to the Bureau of Naughty Foreigner Containment to check up on things last week.

Direct communications between local, provincial, and national levels appear to be rare.  The application moved up from Dongguan to the provincial level.  Since there's evidently no simple way for the local bureau to know what's going on, this means my application may or may not have moved up to national level yet.

It also looks like that 6-9 month initial estimate was a bit optimistic.  Now they seem to think 1 year is closer to the minimum.  They told her that if we'd heard nothing back after the application was 18 months old to let them know and they'd send an inquiry.

I'm all in favor if them checking everything very closely, but really wish there was some method to track things.
