    My thoughts are with them all, I would be devastated if I had to go a fortnight without internet.

    Looks like spam levels could be reduced for a couple of weeks then :) Every cloud and all that!

    Too bad that's the only one, really. You can bet that North America and Europe have more than just one cable serving them. Redundancy etc. is crucial.

    *ahem* I'm gonna go out on a limb and ask if that can be edited.

    On a big negative note, this will probably affect all government offices across a substantial portion of a CONTINENT. Ouch.

    To sum up the last statements.... spam levels drop down to next to nothing because Nigeria is disconnected from the net but also democratic states lose contact to the world.

    Cant think of myself living without internet for a week or even more then 3 days. But i sure think they can reroute a lot of traffic through central/ north africa to europe.

    Just good that I answered to that urgent mail about those 50 mil in time :D

    Why it sould be edited? Did I write something bad? English is not my native language... And I was really talking about a monkey, I was not being racist. It was something to laugh at....
