Could someone help me with my problem?

I have already logged-in but there is this strip that
states "Please Log in or Register to view URLs content!"

I click on "Log in" but instead of getting the "URLs content"
another strip appears which states "You are already logged in., etc".

What do I have to do to see the URLs content?

TIA.

That's odd. You might have to post more before you can see it.

Does China have any awards similar to the Nobel Prize, or the Pulitzer Prize? I feel that the Nobel Prize has gotten politicized, for instance passing up WHO during the pandemic year to award the WFP to please the US. Also awarding Liu Xiaobo just for being a prominent dissident. Also giving Obama the prize for the nothing. Further, Feng Zhang being passed up for the CRISPR prize. Awards like this basically keep everyone reliant on Western approval. It is a soft power geopolitical tool to reward people who are liked by the West, IMO. Russia had the USSR State Prize and the Lenin Peace Prize.

Genuine question: back in February, when it looked like China had utterly failed coronavirus containment (perception at the time), shut down economically, while the rest of the world was doing fine, was there a real possibility Xi would've reigned by the end of this year? Because, at that time, it felt like China, relative to the rest of the world, had been hurt significantly, and as a result, hurt Xi's support nationwide and within the Party. Nowadays, it seems support for Xi and the Party is stronger than ever, due to their competent economic and coronavirus management, especially relative to the rest of the world. But I get the sense the Party, and Xi especially were at there weakest back in February and I knew many people back in China were actively cursing him and the Party for their perceived initial mishandling (back in February). Would Xi have been forced out by the end of this year? Or at the very least, not been allowed to seek a third term?
Not a chance. Even at the worst time of Chairman Mao during the Cultural revolution or the famine during in the 1950's 1960's where so many people died, nobody can boot out the highest party chairman. People waited until Mao died, and until then reforms can be made. There is simply no way to fire the chairman as there is no check and balance in the Chinese system. Unless probably if the chairman is incapacitated.

That is why the party is very careful in selecting leader-in-waiting because of too much power the party chairman holds. There were many instances, Chinese leaders in waiting were purged by single mistake.

While in most countries, political leadership lost their power when their military turn against them during extreme political upheaval. There are many examples, Philippines, Thailand, etc. Most of these militaries, are sworn to allegiance to the constitution and the state. In the Chinese system, the military swore allegiance and loyalty to the party which is implied to the state. And the Xi Jinping, the current chairman happens also has the highest authority of the military. ( It is possible that the Chinese military is controlled by a different person other than the party chairman. For example, the first few years of Hu Jintao term, the military is still controlled by Jiang Zemin.)

The very recent example to this is in Belarus, Thailand again or Venezuela. No amount of protests can remove the political leadership unless the military turn against them.

Mao maynot be very bright but he had studied Chinese history and correctly conclude: Political power grows out from the barrel of a gun.

How many of you who live outside China use Chinese software?

I recently switched from Windows 10 to Deepin OS on my Huawei Matebook 2019, and it's a lot easier than I thought given that I previously had no Linux experience. Here's what I did:

1. Learned a bit about what Linux is. Decided on my Linux distro as Deepin OS. The reason I chose this, is it seems to have the closest connection with UOS, which is China's new OS to replace Windows. But unlike UOS, the international support is very good. It is also based on the Debian stable branch which is the most popular Linux distro that

2. Acquired a Samsung 128 GB USB flash drive.

3. Made an inventory of the common apps I use. Fortunately I don't use many heavy applications on my PC- mostly the browser, Notepad, Snip tool, the Office Suite for document processing, and the VLC media player for playing DVDs. All of these have acceptable Linux versions or alternatives, of course.

4. Downloaded the

5. I carefully backed up all the files I need on my computer to an online file hosting site (since I didn't have an extra USB drive).

6. Downloaded

and used Rufus to convert the ISO file to a bootable format and put it on my flash drive using the

(careful as some computers require you format the flash drive as FAT32 first).

7. Rebooted my computer from USB. There are many ways to do this on Windows 10 which you can find online.

8. Simply followed the installation instructions. I chose to create an entirely new partition and wipe everything out, since if I kept Windows on my computer I would be tempted to go back to it.

9. And that's it! After it came back up, I installed the Linux versions of the above mentioned software. The Deepin user interface is extremely user friendly.

Has anyone else here been through a similar experience?

Now that's cool. Can it run Windows software?

You can run supposedly Windows software with an add-on called

but I haven't tried it. It has an extensive app store.

The other thing is if you absolutely need to run Windows as well, you can either set up dual boot partitions, or you can run it in a free VMWare player (just make sure you write down the license key before overwriting Windows). Fortunately I didn't need that.
