Internet : I (almost) can’t live without it.

On the night of December 26th, 2006, there was a report of big earthquake
(in the scale of 7.1) near Taiwan southern coastline. The quake just came on the
second anniversary of the tragic Asian Tsunami. Fortunately, nothing except a
number of aftershocks happened. However, in its aftermath, the undersea
international communication cables were damaged. As a result, internet
connection and communications across Asia, including Thailand, have been
severely disrupted. That’s a reason why I couldn’t connect to my regular mailbox
at <hotmail.com> and several other web pages. Frustrated, I guess I almost
can’t live without the internet. Am I getting addicted too much to technology?
Well, now I have one more new year resolution to fulfill — try to spend less
time on the internet. Hopefully, I could make it possible.

    I have heard that CAT already reroute internet path to europe path, adding the capacity of european path to about 600 Mbps that cure 50% of connection loss.

    Nut, thanks for the information. Hopefully, the connection will be as efficient as it was before the quake soon.
