    I once said there wasn’t much chance of a nuclear physicist turning up to answer the OP’s question. Five minutes later...

    @Xiao Kui, some of the websites I use to find Chinese literature are: http://www.kanunu8.com http://www.xiabook.com http://www.99lib.net http://www.ixdzs.com I prefer to read on paper and like supporting good art. So I buy physical books, too. Usually I first download a text, then copy and paste it into @imron’s excellent Chinese Text Analyser. If the language is not too difficult, I buy the book.

    Found this inscription in a very old thread. But it's not how I remembered seeing it...

    I can only partially read it, a list of ancestors beginning with the progenitor of the line, the surname of their wife and some brief biographical notes, places they lived (the first ancestor at one point relocates to 樟树埔 for example, which I think is a village near Huizhou which is also mentioned earlier) and I think the state of their grave in the case of the "fifth ancestor" (second pic). Hopefully someone better can come along and say more. One character I don't really recognise but suspect might be saying where their grave is seems to start each entry.

    It's a beauty. Unfortunately I can't read the inscription. It's in seal script (or even in imitation of bronze script). You need an expert. From the few characters I do recognize though, I suspect we've seen this text before in Tattoos, Names and Quick Translations subforum.

    This is what I do too. I don't search for pdfs because in my experience you are more likely to find .txt files than you are to find pdfs. This site has been pretty reliable for me recently, and it has both the books you mention.

    To work remote from client is also matters of guanxi ;) If they know you, you already had contract with them, they trust you, so they can accept working remote. If it is your first contact then it becomes more complicated, as most companies will be cautious about it. Of course you have less choice of contracts, as some companies don't want remote at all. Nothing is free in life! But it is worth the little inconvenients
