Posted on January 2007 at about 11:43 PM by hwa

Today is the very first day of 2007 and we are welcomed with a really “great” news, more delay to the undersea cable repair!!

According to Bloomberg, one of the ship that sent to repair the undersea cable which were damaged by the Taiwan 7.1 magnitude earthquake last week is now facing a “major fault” and couldn’t complete the task, hence the repair schedule is expected to be delayed by one week.

Oh god… 🙁

Blizzard gave back our tuesday in this week with their live maintenance (every tuesday Blizzard will maintain their WoW server and this could take up to 8 hours) but god took it away and “punish” (shouldn’t be call punish but i can’t think of any better word) us by not allowing us to play WoW for don’t know how long. 🙁

Because of the Taiwan earthquake, causing six out of seven undersea cable which link some of the Asia country to US damaged, hence making internet connection become extremely slow until it’s hard for me to post in my blog. 😡 I don’t know how long they will fix the cable but from what i heard, it will probably take three weeks time!! OMG there goes my holiday!!!! 😥

My WoW play time will expired by the end of this month, so i thought i can play WoW in this few days until the time expired then i start study for my final, but i guess i couldn’t do like this anymore, god want me to be good boy. 😥

Hope everything will be fix as soon as possible, at least before my holiday start, i don’t want to spend my holiday with slow internet!! 😥

International Internet Link Down

Posted on December 2006 at about 1:49 AM by hwa

Last night, around 2am i was playing WoW, then all the sudden my WoW ping reach until 2k, then shortly after that all my instant messenger got disconnected. At first i thought it was the live update by Blizzard that’s why it lagged a bit, but it’s not, it’s because the earthquake in Taiwan and caused the international link went down.

According to Reuters, the biggest quake was measured at the magnitude of 7.1 Richter scale, and because of this at least six undersea cables were effected and the international internet line is now congested, several country in Asia including China, South Korea and Malaysia will experience some delay while visit the internet.
