Argh! Is it fixed yet??

Last night, for a little while, the net started working fast, as in really fast, as in super fast, as in lightning fast. I thought the SMW cable is fixed and they have also upgraded the bandwidth or something. I became happy, as in too happy, as in jumping with joy happy, as in laughing out loud happy. But all my hopes were shattered into a million tiny little pieces when I was disconnected. When I connected again, the net was slow, as in turtle slow, as in torture slow. Now I am stuck again, trying to cope up with my internet connection, it’s so slow I don’t know how to use it. It’s been like over a week now. I can’t take it anymore. I admit, I can live in heat without electricity for a long time but I cannot live without internet even for a few minutes.

Now if you excuse me, I have to go and put few buildings on fire.

    according to newspapers this morning, the fault remains partly undetected, leave aside detection of course of ation: repair or replace. besides, india had not permitted shutting down servicse for two hours to detect fault. so there. lets live on something better than nothing.

    This is done by AlQaida who sent a suicidal shark to sabotage the cable.

    Business Recorder reports the cable has been damaged by dragging anchors and fishing nets of vessels pasying over the cable. surprising, considering the cable lies under the sea-bed, and has been damaged across two kilometres. Etisalat is pursuing conencting two points to revive the lost connection, while replacing the chunk. however, shallow waters? just shows that though six years were safe for the cable, it just might not be anymore. if in teh high monsoons the cable can be damaged, calmer sea-level months would prove more risky for the cable.
