  1. Still happening in Safari. Still happening in Safari. I could obviously use another browser but I use Safari as it by far the best suited for my studies. There are Evernote alternatives, DEVONthink and Thinkery being 2 of them. Which is a shame as I am happy with Evernote apart from this odd Chinese server behaviour. But it's the small things that make the difference and this is one of those situations. That and it's been almost a month since a fix was found and was being tested. Bye and thanks for all the (saved) memories....
  2. 'The cheque is in the post'. 'It was like that when I got here'. Etc etc etc.. 6/10. Could do better Evernote.
  3. Might this be part of the problem? I've found that Web Clipper tries to connect to Yinxiang, the Chinese Evernote service, every now and again. If it is pinging yinxiang, and receiving no response, would that cause it not to clip? Below is a post I made in the Web Clipper help section regarding my concerns a few days ago. Hello folks. Sorry if I am reposting an old issue but the search facility on this forum seems to be down. I am using Evernote WebClipper on Safari and although I am based in the UK, the WebClipper app is constantly trying to connect to the Chinese site Yinxiang. According to Little Snitch, it attempted to connect over 200000 times in the last hour. I am aware this is an Evernote service but am a little concerned that my data is being stored on Chinese servers despite this affirmation from the Evernote blog. It states that; 'This still leaves the question of government access. The laws and practices controlling data stored on servers in China are evolving rapidly and Yinxiang Biji will comply with Chinese regulations applicable to the service. This means users of Yinxiang Biji should be aware that Chinese authorities may have the right to access their data according to current regulations. The existing Evernote service will continue to operate out of servers located in California under the protection of US privacy laws'. Source : http://blog.evernote...hinese-service/ I contacted Evernote Customer support and was informed that 'Non-chinese customers' data are stored on our servers in the US, but I can't say what level of access, if any, the Chinese government has to our servers in China. Sometimes our apps signals can get crossed and try to access the wrong server. This is especially common if using a VPN or Proxy server.' I use neither a VPN nor a Proxy server. I uninstalled and reinstalled the WebClipper app as requested which worked fine for a while but is now back to it's old habit of sometimes trying to connect to Yinxiang. Am I being a touch paranoid or is there something to be concerned about here? Regards. Mik
