Re: were you trying to enjoy some nordic netart today?

Posted by Ivan Pope | Thu Aug 29th 2002 1 a.m.

If you look at the map here (http://www.nordu.net/connectivity/), there are
at least three gigabit plus links into nordic countries. One comes through
the UK. One down into Europe. I dont understand how you can be disconnected
by losing one link, but then what do I know ...

    Yes, and if you try getting a chart of the Icelandic ports it says the
    information doesn't exist. It looks like the other countries have other
    connections coming in but for us, if the Cantat3 goes, we're out of
    business.

    I always thought the data was supposed to find itself a different route
    but that doesn't appear to be the case for Iceland. Oh well.
