5,000 a month? i've talked to a few guys who've worked on Cosco ships who'd probably take that deal.

Hey, here is another news Danwei may like to translate:
拉萨:打字复印业将实行实名登记制度: Lhasa installed "real name registration" rule for word-typing and photocopying. Anyone who wants to type or copy any document must be approved by police department and have her/his name and Citizen ID Number recorded.

Thanks, santu. The China Daily has now reported on that story, and we linked to it yesterday. The WSJ's China Real Time Report quotes one copy-shop clerk who says he refuses to copy Tibetan-language materials, which he can't read, just to be on the safe side.
