    Re: So beautiful, I can't help but want to share it with everyone on the VB6 forum

    Can't you open the links above
    the first comes up forbidden, the second goes to a fully chinese login page, so NO
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Sorry, this is my problem. weibo.com only allows downloading videos in its mobile app, not on PC. But I didn't want to install the weibo app on my phone, so I used a third-party tool to generate a temporary link to download, and this temporary link will expire in the short time.

    I'll upload the full video.

    Beautiful indeed but, yeah, not really at home in VB6 forum. I'm moving it to the ChitChat Forum.

    That video is a gift I gave to the VB6 sub-forum. I hope the beautiful scenery and beautiful birds will bring them (including you) happiness and ease.

    Do you reckon? I always get the feeling that most members drop in here from time to time whereas the Main sub forums tend only to attract people interested in that narrow technology.

    Either way, I left a link the VB6 sub forum so folk's will wend their way here. Everybody wins.

    nice !!

    it is a pitty that in Germany the Bird population ( and Insects) are getting less and less in numbers. Even more sad is that the government doesn't seem to care much.
    to hunt a species to extinction is not logical !
    since 2010 the number of Tigers are rising again in 2016 - 3900 were counted. with Baby Callas it's 3901, my wife and I had 2-3 months the privilege of raising a Baby Tiger.

    The eagle eyed will of course note those were blue footed boobies, I kind of like the smaller Tit.

    Shouldn't mention the Woodpecker though.
    Didn't intend to parrot this crowd.

    In the past, due to the vigorous development of the economy, China ignored the protection of the environment, resulting in a large reduction in wildlife. But in the past 10 years, the Chinese government has done a lot of work on environmental protection, and the number of wild animals has begun to rise.

    The golden-bellied golden pheasant is the prototype of the phoenix and the provincial bird of Sichuan Province, China. There are many beautiful places in Sichuan, and the famous scenic spot "Jiuzhai Valley" is located in Sichuan. I used to take my family there and it was really like a fairyland in a dream.

    If you understand Chinese painting, you will understand the meaning of the scenery in this video. When we saw Chinese painting before, we thought it was beautiful and peaceful, but it seemed different from the environment in reality. But after seeing this video, I realized that the scenes in Chinese paintings were real, but now most of these beautiful sceneries have disappeared.

    Yes, it's the Chinese government, which mainly bans Google and FaceBook (but academic institutions and schools can access these sites), and does not ban other sites. We don't agree with this approach of the government, but most people can accept it. There was a period of time (especially 2009-2014), China's Internet environment was too open, and the Internet was full of all kinds of extreme speech, false information and rumors. These unhealthy information had a very bad impact on young people, so the government managed and restricted the Internet, but there are still many ways for people to learn about the world through the Internet.

    In fact, China is much more open than Westerners think. China is a paradise for foreigners. Not only does it have a lot of beautiful scenery, wonderful food, and modern life, but it's also the safest country in the world. It's the only country in the world that is more friendly to foreigners (guests) than natives. Because our ancestors educated people very early: What a joy to have when friends come from afar(有朋自远方来,不亦乐乎).

    What a load of...
    With the exception of child p0rn, everything else should be open to public.
    If your ancestors educated people then you should not have a fear for bad impact on young people.
    China was very safe for Tibet also. Boy those monks where really educated!
    So your a democratic state a communist state?

    And the Chinese mafia is made of angels... I watched Lethal Weapon so I would know.

    You really fell for that one

    Our government is guilty of the same things though albeit in lesser terms. For years you couldn't even show a toilet on TV and couples always slept in twin beds. The government decides what is pornography and what words can be said in public. I'm willing to say the USA has some of the most free speech on the planet, but, that doesn't stop people from trying to enforce their beliefs on others via government involvement though.

    IMO, China is neither a democracy nor a communist country. China has been exploring a system that suits its own national conditions and is constantly adjusting according to the development of society.

    You know too little about China, and those understandings are basically wrong.

    10 years ago, when the Chinese government banned Google, I was very angry. But when Google banned Huawei from using Google products according to the requirements of the US government this year, I understood why the Chinese government banned Google.

    You know China is a country with a population of 1.4 billion. It is not easy to feed 1.4 billion people (these people were extremely poor before). The Chinese government has not only done this, but has made at least 400 million people rich (of which 200 million are very rich). And all this only took 40 years. Perhaps the Chinese government still has many shortcomings, but it is still making progress, and many countries have begun to regress. There are always some people who are dissatisfied with the government, even if it's only 20%, there are 280 million. I used to be dissatisfied, but I would not just look at the shortcomings of others, I also pay attention to and appreciate the advantages of others.
