Internet's been down in Asia

Sorry if I haven't been able to post these past few days. Internet access has been really really bad here in Asia (I live in the Philippines), and websites have been taking forever to load, if they even do at all. Things are starting to look up though, and hopefully we'll have full internet access restored in a few days.

Here's an excerpt from Yahoo! Asia:

Asia Internet slowly comes back online

HONG KONG (AFP) - Millions of frustrated Internet users across Asia slowly regained access to overseas websites on Friday, three days after an earthquake off the coast of Taiwan snapped several vital undersea cables.

Telecoms operators across the region re-routed Internet links to circumvent the ruptured lines off the southern part of the island, as engineers donned diving suits to assess the damage and begin repairs.

But customers in the Philippines have been asked to play their part too -- by limiting overseas calls to family and friends over the New Year.
