About Me:
I've been living in China since January of 2008. I'm a Linux administrator, Internet administrator, computer and electronics tech. I also do embedded (microcontroller) programming and design. I have a Chinese business license, for doing computer repair, and website development/hosting.

When Google isn't blocked, this is how to reach instead of Use or simply click on "" in the bottom edge, on the right hand side of the page. Obviously, this does not get around the great firewall of China. When google is blocked, try this link (unfortunately, only available in Chinese).

Did you know that Facebook is not completely blocked in China (it's only 1/2 blocked), and can be reached without a VPN/proxy, if you know what to do. If you're computer savvy, and want to try it out, give me a shout, and I'll tell you all the details. If you're not computer savvy, and want to try it out, then I'll do it for you via remote control, with Teamviewer. If you want to try my trick with other blocked sites, then let me know, and I'll test it out and let you know if it works or not.

How to get real Skype (not TOM Skype) in China.
Many people are not aware, that TOM Skype spies on you. Just google for "tom skype spies on you", and you'll find many references to this, both old and new (I've known about this since 2008). If you try to go to Skype's pages, in China, you're automatically redirected to TOM Skype, however, if you know the direct download link, you can download the full version of Skype, that does not need an Internet connection to install, so you can copy it to USB, and give it to your friends. The direct download link for Windows is (link updated Aug 2014) and if you're using Mac, then the link is

How to get Skype for Android in China.
If you have an Android device in China, you may notice that Skype is not available in the Google Play app. The easiest way to get Skype, is to just download the skype .apk (Android package file) from some 3rd party. I recommend Android Drawer, which also will allow you to download older versions if Android programs. Just remember to skip the ads at the top of the list. You will also need to make sure your Android device is configured to allow it to install apps from sources other than the Play Store.

Some of my favorite quotes:

Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value. - Albert Einstein

Wisdom is knowing what to do next. Virtue is doing it.

Microsoft does not make products to use, the make products to sell.

The day Microsoft makes a product that don't suck, is the day they make a vacuum.

A "Microsoft Certified System Engineer" is to computing, what a "McDonalds Certified Food Specialist" is to fine cuisine.

Computers are like air conditioners, They stop working when you open windows.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for leaving me a note. I'm using a samsung laptop and the letters 'q' and 's' aren't working. I think it may be because I spilled some water over my keyboard the other day. How to solve this?

Dave, you are an expert in computer technology. I am runing the business of  English teaching  both locally and online. I like English as I went to college in your country. California and Wiscosin are both places where I lived and studied. Hope to be friend with you in Shenzhen China. Thanks.

Nightmares in Passport Renewal

Posted on November 9, 2014 at 11:00am 21 Comments

Without a doubt, the US State Department should be considered a domestic terrorist organization. Every time I've had any contact with these people, they have done nothing but lie to me, and jerk me around. Hell, it's their policy, to lie to you, and jerk you around.

My problems first started 7 years ago, when I first applied for my passport. They said I was denied a passport, because I owe more than $2500 in child support. That is a lie! All my previous child…
