Back Online. Finally!

The earthquake in Ta1wan has really hit us hard as far as damaging the undersea cables is concerned. News reported that 6 of the 7 undersea cables, serving Hong Kong and Greater Ch1na, were damaged, grinding down bandwidth to a virtual standstill.

Originally Phase I of the repair was said to be scheduled for a 9 Jan completion but due to bad weather and losing one of the repair ships (now back safely in Kao Hs1ung), Phase I completion is expected to finish by 16 Jan instead with full completion pushing all the way back to end of January.

As for my side, I couldn't access the blog entry section of blog-city until this evening. I was able to get to other parts, including Flickrs but the all important blog entry section just eluded me. It always load halfway only to be stuck right before rendering the textbox. The f*cking tease!

Anyway, glad to be back online and I have so much backlogged blog (hey it rhymes!) to write about.
Happy New Year to all eventhough I started the f*cking year being pek cheked by the loss of the net.
