From Thursday this week until September my contributions here will be patchy. I am going on holiday: first to Beijing, then to Taiwan, then to Guilin where I will then work for a week before coming back here for September. As I don't intend to take my laptop with me, my internet access will all be through my phone which is fine except that my skills at typing on the phone are, to put it mildly, rather poor so I tend to avoid posting much from it. I will still be around, just not posting so much.
