Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

My internet connection was out from 8 AM until about noon today. Most annoying. A five minute interruption is not so bad, but, in this case, it seems to have been an eight hour interruption. I complained about the lack of redundancy in their feed and noted that anytime a drunk hit a phone pole between here and Harrison AR, ~100km, we lose internet for a day. They said a fiber optic repeater had failed. I asked, if that was the case, was not the fiber into and out of the repeater connecterized and why couldn't they just change out the repeater? I got no good answer. I think the cable reliability is more like three nines than five nines.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
