Well it is getting worse.
Is it the fact that the APCN-2 cable was severed in Taiwan again from the typhoon/earthquake?
Is it China Telecom with poor BGP? (Confirmed from our provider)
Is it the October 1st anniversary coming up?
Is it another batch of Edison Chen nude starlet photos doing the rounds?
Who knows… what I do know is that our private links to HK and then to the world are fine! Got to looove all the hard work those people in CANDIS put in to plan and manage against this VERY TYPE of thing for their clients.
Currently locally hosted sites work – but if this goes on like last time the cable was cut from the earthquake in 2007 – even they (local sites) will fail because DNS will fail because there are no root servers for DNS in China, most registrars are also not in China and well… you get the idea. No point being able to connect if you do not know where to connect!
