    So my boss got an early Christmas present from his wife, a Nexus 10. Got to play with it a little bit yesterday. Pretty sweet, but I still don't care for that size.
    He was asking about a way to access the harddrive at work. It's a standalone drive that's shared with many computers throughout the network. Anyone know an app he can use?
    He got LogMeIn working though but dang is that thing slow as molasses.

    Depends what you mean by access. If he just wants file access es file explorer can log onto network shares.

    Try to avoid Beijing Subway, Line 1 during rush hour.... phew!

    I'm just taking a bit of leave that was due to me, seeing a few friends here. Will be back at school just before Christmas, which is not a holiday here.

    Nice to see all the seasonal avatars, I like that. :)

    No leftover Chinese for me. Going out for some real Peking Duck tomorrow night, hopefully.

    Christmas is not an officially recognised holiday, apart from Hong Kong. Everyone will be at work, the schools and colleges are open as usual. There's plenty of decorations, lights and trees. It's rather seen as a prequel to Spring Festival/Lunar New Year, which is on Feb 10th. When almost everyone is on holiday, and goes home, sees family and friends etc.
