Internet is taking a break

As reported in the news, the earthquake in Taiwan has damaged a few undersea cables that connect us to the rest of the world. According to IDA, it is expected that the internet connection speed will be slow for the next few days.

Upon hearing this, I wondered how slow things could get and decided to check it out. True enough, surfing speed has come to a crawl and it took me a few attempt to login and post this entry. In fact, it’s slower than the 56K dial-up service I used in the past.

Depending on how soon connections will be restored, I’ll try to keep things organized and updated. Meanwhile, if you’re not receiving any email response from me, it’s simply because the internet has decided to take a break and there’s nothing really I can do to help improve the situation.
