    Hi guys. My company sent me to southern China for two weeks right at the start of football season. But I wanted to let all of you know that I bought a Slingbox before I left and it works great! Looks like I won't miss any of the games (though I will lose plenty of sleep since it will be 1AM and 4AM here). Quality is just fine. I can even use my Tivo to watch my recordings.

    At any rate, those of you who are overseas during the football season should consider one of these.

    Ain't technology great? And if you don't mind me asking, what sort of business sends you to China for two weeks? Sounds interesting...

    Good for you!

    I don't know what a slingbox is, but sounds like a wonderful device.

    Have fun and eat lots of exotic local cooking .....

    I work for a software company and we have a team of 15 people working on the product here in Guangzhou. They sent me here to oversee operations for a few weeks, help them streamline some process and work through some technical design, that sort of thing. I was trying to game this trip so that they would send me in late August but it didn't work out. Once September comes, there is no good time. ;)

    This is my first trip to China and I have to say it's quite a culture shock! Things are really different here, in more ways than I could possibly list here. Let's just say I have eaten some very interesting and exotic things here. :)

    Good to see that you like it. I am going to get one soon and hook it up at my brother's house in Austin so that I can see all of the Cowboys games the next few seasons in my area.

    I could, but you wouldn't recognize the food. :) It is completely different. I uploaded an attachment - I hope it works. It is some dishes at a snake restaurant I ate at last night. It case you're wondering, it tastes like chicken. :cool:

    Edit: sorry, forum limit is only 19K so too small. It says 97K for JPG but it won't let me upload it. :)
