All the three hotel rooms that I have been staying at have a central control panel by the bed. So to go to sleep you can just press one button, which will turn off all the lights and sets up the sign "Don't disturb" at the door. Pretty cool eh?
Although they don't have an alarm clock.
The connection in China to US is BAAAAAAAAAAD. I did a download speed test the other day and here are the data:
- ThoughtWorks gforge 0.6kb
- sourceforge 1.9kb
- rubyforge 2.3kb
- java.net 2.7kb
- codehaus 2.3kb
BTW, the connection within China is pretty fast.
