Thank you! (A voice from the heaven)
I am afraid only a few people can foresee the impact of the Taiwanese earthquake on our cyber-life; this includes the daily life of people as far away as those living on the other side of the globe. The poor Taiwanese not only suffered from the impact of the quake but also devastated by the telecommunication break down. (Hope they will recover very soon.) The modern day technology brings us many goodies and convenience, and we all take it for granted. Unfortunately we only appreciate it when we lose it; we seldom do so while we are enjoying it. (I guess this is part of our nature?!) Thus I would like to thank those telecommunication workers who brought the network back online after a disaster of this scale. You know, while we are having our second thought of our dependence on the telecommunication network, please don't forget the fact that this blog is likely to be transmitted over a satellite link for the time being.
