The internet connection from Europe to China is linked by Taiwan. That earthquake made me having no contact with you the whole 2 weeks, I was so depressed...

Well.I can really feel it!
At that time,I was in class with my classmates.What a terrible experience!
(Oh,I am sorry,I forgot to say that I am in Fujian.Quite near Tai wan)
Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
And,with the earthquake so terrible,the optical cables under the sea had been destroyed.
My Internet couldn't be connected with foreign webs!So I haven't been here for almost a month! Crying or Very sad
Sorry for it!
Now,the optical cables are being repaired.So the wire speed is still veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy slow!
Oh,God!
I spent 6 minutes in opening ESL Cafe,7 minutes in logging,5 minutes in opening "Current News" and 6 minutes in opeing "Earthquake in Twaiwan"!
Oh~~~
Toooooooo slow! Rolling Eyes

Luckily,there weren't too many poeple injured! Laughing
I just hope that all the optical cables will be repaired as soon as possible! Wink
