Eastern Palace (东宫)

Eastern Palace

YES!!!!!!! I recently read the spoiler summary of the story on Xia0er's tumblr and the story is so goood and so sad!

Ice Fantasy (幻城)

Ice Fantasy

Guo Jingming's first venture in dramaland. Will he become another Yumama or a Shandong TV producer? Hummm, only time will tell. Ice Fantasy is an upcoming Chinese epic fantasy television drama, produced by Shanghai Youhug Media and will broadcast on Hunan Satellite Television Diamond independent broadcast theater.

Cast: Feng Shaofeng, Victoria Song, Ma Tianyu, Zhang Meng

Just One Smile Is Very Alluring

Definitely worth watching because you can be sure any Gu Man story will be sweet and healing for the soul. What is it that makes a man fall in love with a woman at first sight? Appearance? Aura? Wealth? NO, when campus prince and gaming expert, student Xiao Nai first saw Bei Wei Wei, what made him fall in love was not her extraordinary beauty, but her slim and slender fingers that were flying across the keyboard and her calm and composed manner!!!
Episodes: 32
Air date: 2016

Zhu Xian (诛仙)

Zhu Xian

There are so many names attached to this project so I feel like it is a big messy. The story is based on a video game and I guess that’s why there are so many characters. This is probably one of the most watched C-drama productions due to the casting and popularity of the source novel so I’ll jump on the casual observer wagon for now.
Air date: 2016
Cast: Li Yifeng, TFBoys, Yang Zi

The difference between VPN and Remote Desktop

You may confuse the difference of VPN and remote access software like VNC or RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). Even both of them can be used to access remote resources, the underlying technologies are quite different. Below I will explain how they work, and their pros and cons.

VPN vs Remote Desktop


VPN provides a special tunnel, let all traffic through VPN, and your IP would shown as VPN server's IP, then able to get unblock the geo-restricted resources. Good VPN providers offer servers located in the US, UK, the Netherlands and elsewhere in the world to enable you access resources from any country.

VPN allows you to unlock online game, bypass school, company and hotel's internet restrictions, unblock websites, browse web anonymously, hide & change IP. While, a VPN wasn't solely designed to allow you to get remote resources. You need to setup VPN on other devices like computers, smart phones or smart TVs.


Remote Desktop Protocol is designed to let you remote control a computer as though you were sitting directly in front of the remote workstation. If you were to perform a Google search on the remote machine, it uses that computer's Internet connection to transfer data - not the Internet connection on the computer you are sitting in front of. After you have remotely connected to a computer, you do actually have access to all of the local network resources, similar to a VPN.

You can use all of your work computer's programs, files, and network resources from your home computer. RDP has improved performance over low-speed dial-up connections through reduced bandwidth. RDP is designed to support many different types of Network topologies (such as ISDN, POTS, and many LAN protocols such as IPX, NetBIOS, TCP/IP, and so on). However, one drawback with RDP is that it is not secure.

The biggest difference between VPN and Remote Desktop is from where you can access remote resources. With a VPN, you can get the remote resources from online on your computer. With RDP, you need to logging into the remote computer to get the resources.
