I Walk The Online

So I'm back!

Just when my Chinese studies were starting to improve, I'm back online!

But where my Chinese text may feel a little abandon, you no longer need to. I'm back amongst you and couldn't be happier for it.

Buddy from the telecom company showed up yesterday and sorted me out by doing what they do best, a whole lot of nothing. Basically, as I nicked the modem and gear from my apartment in Dalian, all I needed was an account name and password. This, of course, didn't stop him from putting a bunch of Chinese language China Telecom software on my computer.

I've run a bunch of malware removal utilities and I think I've got it all off… but who knows, perhaps CT have downloaded all my sensitive files and are currently recording each keystroke I type…

Ran across this little pic via the boys at TalkTalkChina, who scooped it from Dulang. It's actually pretty fitting to have Gene Simmons givin' Mao the paint. With Simmons alleging he's slept with 4,600 women … he's got to be getting near Mao's booty count.

I don't know about rock 'n' roll all night, but Mao was certainly Party everyday.

Oh, some may have noticed the addition of a little Podcast of Post link at the top of each entry. This is for all those of you whom just can't be bothered to risk the health of your eyes to read this drivel. So, waste your hearing instead! It text-to-speech's my post and does a reasonable job – but as Rick pointed out … it's very OK Computer-esque.

  1. Ha. Party everyday.
    Nice one!

    I tried putting that podcast thing on my other blog. But for some reason it got placed in the footer, goddammit. Cute feature all the same.

    Ryan, you should really do a post of all the cool blog-related links you’ve accumulated (problogger style). I’m bettin’ it’d be friggin’ useful…

  2. Hey man, you franchisin’? What’s with the Pandapassport Dalian thing?

    I don’t suggest letting the WordPress plugin do its thing – just install it manually, it’s not hard. Then you can put it anywhere you want. A warning though – it uses your RSS feed, and if that’s set to be just a little sample of your whole post – that’s all that will get read. Incidently, all those RSS subscribers of mine are now getting full posts in their RSS readers.

    I may do such a post, but that would just help you steal my coolery ;-). JK.

  3. Well Ryan i’m glad your back…it was a long couple of weeks not knowing if you have been detained…(I know your past) or what lol….keep up the writing…it’s about the only thing i enjoy reading back here in Canada
