Differences between .com and .com.cn
(and how to check for more-current pages)
China has stricter laws regarding Internet content than
the US, and we do our best to comply with those laws. For
example, it is never our intention to "make China look bad"
(which is illegal in China)--we love
living and working here! Examples and photos from China are here to help
those in other countries understand this country better. If
any Chinese person sees something on www.krigline.com.cn that should not
be published in China, please notify us (in English) and we will look
into it as soon as possible.
To comply with these stricter standards,
some content on www.krigline.com is not on www.krigline.com.cn. In most
cases, I've added "-E" to
those page names, such as "www.krigline.com.cn/israel-E.htm", while the
complete page's name would be "www.krigline.com/israel.htm".
But for various reasons, I plan to have fewer and fewer of these "-E"
Since .com.cn can be uploaded from our home in China
you can often find more-current
pages at www.krigline.com.cn. To check (from
www.krigline.com), normally you
simply need to add ".cn" to the page name (e.g.,
www.krigline.com.cn/update.htm). If this doesn't work, look at the
site map (www.krigline.com.cn/sitemap.htm).
If the page you want has
capital letters, please
change them to lower case! (See the yellow box at the top of this page
for explanation.) Because of a technical (MS Frontpage/upload) problem, I've
also created a duplicate set of main links on the top of major pages.
Credit to some helpful resources
I have created the definitions used on this website, but
often after consulting one or more dictionaries. I highly recommend the
following reference materials (which I often use) to anyone trying to
Dictionary of Contemporary English, 3rd ed. Essex: Longman
Group, Ltd. (Pearson Education), 1995 [Summers, Della, Director]. (Great dictionary for non-native
speakers; itís no coincidence that my definitions often sound a lot like the
ones in this reference resource! Longman Dictionary is also
available as software, and it is available in China. I highly
recommend this helpful tool. You can also use this dictionary for free* on
line; it is linked to my Links page.)
The Free Dictionary by Farlex (http://www.thefreedictionary.com).
You can read about it on their page, but trust me--it's a great tool! This
is also linked to my Links page.
Microsoft Encarta Reference Library 2004. (Software)
USA: Microsoft Corporation, ©1993-2003. (Back when this software
worked--before Windows 7--it was nice to have a good
dictionary/thesaurus inside my computer when writing. I
often consulted this software when composing definitions.)
