Q: What are the rules for shipping Chinese antiques to the US?

I have some bronze arrowheads, knives, coins, and a few other things.  Eventually I want to ship them home to the US but I understand this may not be possible.  Does anyone know the real situation?

I don't know anything about it, but this article might be of some help to you.

I'm sure there would be lots of info and advice out there if you google it, it seems like the sort of question that would come up reasonably often.

Stiggs:

I'm going off topic here, this has nothing to do with the question but... I wonder why search engine names always sound like noises you make when you're playing with a baby. Duck duck go, bing, google, yahoo....

 

Thinking back most of the people I've known who worked with computers,and the sort of people likely to design a search engine have been a bit...well... peculiar.

Stiggs:

There was a thing in the news recently about DDG allowing tracking. I think it turned out there's some but it's still better than the others, I didn't pay much attention at the time though so probably didn't see the whole story.

 

I find DDG pretty good too, mostly if I'm looking for results Google isn't showing. I gave up worrying too much about tracking a long time ago, if you use the internet you should just assume you're being tracked so some extent I think.

I read about that ... It was title like "... DDG is scamming the users by claiming no tracking ...', something in these lines.

I don't care about tracking, either. I have TOR and I am using it when I want more privacy ..., but I am using it more and more, he he.

I also have PreVeil Drive, encryption software installed, but as I understand encryption works only when both, sender and receiver have the thingy installed. However, I sent an email to my cousin few days ago and she replied: "My computer says that's not you ..." ... like somebody hacked my email address and is using it from different IP/different puter. But, that ain't and it's 'cause my everything puter's is encrypted, but if receiver doesn't have it, then sent text is wide open to the prying eyes at the receiver's end.

The only reason, I use encryption and TOR is to give a hard time to snoopers. I don't do anything illegal over the web, so I don't have too many worries, except .gov is reading what I say and tracking where I go over the web ... and I am convinced they do it.

I don't see encryption .. any different than when in real life, you don't want everybody in the pub hear what you're saying, so you lower your voice or you whisper.

What I also do on my the smallest HD (8 GB) puter is I clean history and cookies several times per day. It's very simple task on Opera browser.

I am thinking, if somebody would grab or hack my puter, there wouldn't be much to see on my previous use, maybe some couple of hours browsing history. They would certainly have to dismantle and look into my HD.

TOR browser erases all history and other software dung automatically at every reboot.
