Excuse me?  I heard nothing about any of Hong Kong's dozen or so
ISP's getting shut down, nor experienced any disruption in getting
email out, nor had any trouble at all with my daily Web browsing...
Hong Kong Supernet alone provides over a Gbaud at the moment.  It's
bit surreal reading about some terrible thing that's supposed to
have happened to *me*, that I never noticed...  As much as I'm on
the net, I would have been semi-incoherent if something like the
above had hit.
