just a quick note while I can still post

We’ve been experiencing disturbances in the internet connection and interrupted mail services for the past two days here in the UAE and given the track record of my company’s history of faulty servers, I did not give it much thought. I just tried to keep up with blogging by getting up as early asย 5 am to keep up.

Today this came:

Damaged sea cable hits internet services

Dubai: Both the UAE’s telecom providers suffered yesterday from a break down of internet connections and international calls after a cable was cut in the Mediterranean Sea.

Officials from both network providers were unable to disclose when the issue will be resolved as the submarine cable system operators (FLAG Telecom and SEA-ME-WE 4) were responsible for repairing the damage.

In its statement, etisalat said it was able to re-route the traffic through its network partners in Asia, Europe and UAE to ensure that services remained operational in the UAE.

To all the fishes in the Mediterranean Sea: STOP MUNCHING ON THE CABLES so everyone can have a little normal life in the region! Nessie, if you are responsible for this, please go back to where you belong.

I am not able to receive incoming emails for work today so the company is spending a lot on international calls I make to Japan. My phone is ringing like crazy it took someย time for me to finish this post. So much for saying this will be ‘quick’.

  2. Hey, maybe you’re on to something there: maybe this is the first step in the attack of the aliens living in the deep seas, just like in that book “The Swarm”. Ever read that? It’s great. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hope you’ll be online as usual again soon. We don’t want you to go crazy there, being cut off from the rest of the world and all…
