Hello World!

Somehow, a submarine cable connecting China with the USA has been severed. This is not the first time it has happened. But it doesn't make it any less annoying. Because that cable is an integral part of Australia's Internet network.

Which meant that most of last night I sat staring at pages, waiting for them to load, before giving up in disgust and going off to play Civilization II. This morning there was an improvement, (ie: pages loaded) but it still takes forever to get places. Or more importantly, to download promos - for I had to get my hands on the latest Enterprise trailer.

I am pleased to report that I have now seen the promo (many times), and all is right in the world again. Except for that damn cable.
