Just a heads up: I'm gonna be at a conference for the next week and mostly out of touch. I'll try to check in every night or two but I can't guarantee I'll always be around. Keep dumping complaints and suggestions in the appropriate thread, and I'll pore over them next Friday (May 23) when I'm back home.
Farewell. Hope to see you again when you're feeling more confident. Some day you'll realize that long large portions of the gentry got by without really contributing anything except demented opinions, and just accept that there's nothin' wrong with hangin' around for the sake of hangin' around.
Also: I am currently goofing around in Gansu and will do so until the tenth, subsequent to which I will on the twelfth return to Switzerland. In the meanwhile I'll see if I can't find Tangut inscriptions here somewhere.
(NB: as far as I can tell this means that I will be sans internet on the ninth and maybe on the twelfth depending on how tired my eighteen hours of journey back to Switzerland makes me – but eeeehhhh I've spent longer times in Chinese trains and I was fine after that.)
