Ropeyarn Sunday “Sea Stories” and Open Trackbacks

February 6th, 2008 by xformed

Ropeyarn was canceled today, but Open Trackbacks aren’t!

A “sea story” of sorts:

Sorta like when the 1st plane flew into the WTC, the reaction was one of “OMG! How horrible!” It took a second, then third for us to know it wasn’t a major coincidence.

First one, then two, now four submarine cables have been cut that provide internet and associated data services to the Middle East.

It’s not like there haven’t been storms in the area of the Suez Canal before, with ships dragging anchor. Worth keeping track of….

Update: Bonus! I’m ripping Taco Bell, the kilt wearing Gyrene, off for a sea story (yes, Marines are part of the Navy). He has a great one up about a dummied up letter to the editor of Stars and Stripes, while serving on an island full of Marines back in 1994. It’s a hoot!

    Belmont Club sez 5 cables have been cut. 2 near Alexandria, 2 near UAE, 1 near Malaysia.

    But while India has been affected,
    Iran has not been affected.
