Anyone else notice?

How quickly the internet is working today?

Telephone lines and Internet service went dead across much of Asia on Wednesday after two powerful earthquakes damaged undersea cables used by several countries to route calls and online traffic.

Repairing the cables could take weeks because crews have to pull them up and transfer them to a ship for repair, said Lin Jen-hung, vice general manager of Chunghwa Telecom Co., Taiwan's largest phone company.

I mean an earthquake is no laughing matter but MAN its really fast today. LOL.

I guess when about 1 billion people get off line that happens.


On a serious note however. Luckily no Tsunami occurred.
Thank God.
