The Joy Of Remote Desktop Sharing

Although I have a “2 MEG” ADSL connection from Shanghai, I found it especially slow when uploading/downloading changes using Adwords Editor.

All the inbound/outbound internet traffic from China goes through the Great Firewall of China. It’s basically a sophisticated filter that blocks many websites including offensive content.

Before I left Florida, I set up LogMeIn, a remote desktop sharing application which allows me to access my computer in Florida while in Shanghai.

Now, if I want to make a change to my Adwords account, I simply log into my computer at home, make the changes, and upload my account. It’s fast because it’s using my high bandwidth Florida connection.

    Hey Josh, any recommendations to back up important files.

    Do you use online or offline storage data?

    Your best bet is an external 250 GIG hard drive :)

    Logmein.com also has an easy file transfer option that I’m using.
