    Indeed good bedtime reading, just what I needed tonight something really long to get me sleeping like a baby 😉 Thanks for that!

    Nice to know someone is still reading my blog with the rather poor and sporadic postings of late 🙂

    It now stands at four breaks. When they’ve finished with the first two off Alexandria they can go and fix the 2 around the corner.

    Here is a fascinating (and long) 1996 article from Wired about the history of undersea cables and how they are laid out. It concentrates on FLAG, one of the cables cut last week.
