Today, I’m in China for work. All my work is stored in my Google Drive, directly via the internet. It’s just a pity that Google is banned in China. FML

Why didnt you save the things you knew you would need (or might need) to the HD of your computer, or a flash drive of sorts if that is an option for the things?

I do that all the time. Yesterday I was in Mexico. Today I'm in the Bahamas. It's like a holiday every day, only I'm sitting in the dark in my underwear eating sausage in a can.

I'd recommend either a VPN or proxy. They're the Internet equivalent of shoving a Playboy into a school textbook so you can look at it while masturbating in cla—they allow for forbidden server access by accessing the sites remotely and then providing you with the results.

You can use a VPN, and there are a lot of free ones which you can use. (Don't wanna name some cause of advertising stuff but just google free vpn)

Most of them are limited though (the free ones at least - for example only 2GB/Month) but it should be enough for work related documents :D

I don't think you get the irony of your post. You said to google free VPN but Google is banned in China. Unless Yahoo is now banned which it wasn't when I went to China in 2015, you could probably type in free VPN there.

You know there is this special thing called a VPN

im (not really) sorry to be rude, but if you knew you were going to work in china, maybe find a non google service? or, you know, keep it all offline in your computer? if it relates to work, the internet really isn't the right place for it anyway.

Perhaps ask a family member to access your google drive and email you the work instead? Tbh I thought that's a widely known thing. I'd have researched that if I was going to China, due to the censoring they have
