guys, its nothing to do with our ISPs. depending on which site you're trying to get to, especially the overseas ones, you may or will experience increased network latency or failure to connect. i cannot divulge much but i can say that a few undersea cables have been damaged and this is affecting AsiaPac internet access to sites in the US etc, amongst other things.
my gmail has been working intermittently. all the problems are due to the Taiwan quake. many services in my office are affected, and even IDD calls in and out of certain countries in the AsiaPac region are impacted.
don't gripe, just be thankful the quake is not here. otherwise VR lens also not enough to stabilise your shot while you wet your pants.
