internet problems

Internet services are severly disrupted due to damaged undersea cables, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7218008.stm

Come on then who dropped the anchor on my internet cable.

While we are on the subject of conspiracy theories, it may not be a coincidence that the two cables were cut in the Middle East area.

Now something good may yet come out of this - less offshore bloody helplines if the lines keep getting cut off!
