the pull down menu doesn't do anything as far as i can tell, just leave it on whatever it is already set to. unfortunately i can't seem to login on the translated page, so i have 2 instances of the forum running - one in chinese and one in englsih. you can figure out where to navigate to by cross referencing them. man i wish i could speak chinese :-)http://bbs.gemeitech.com/index.php
