According to the article, it seems like the cable will provide more of a direct link to South-East Asia, Oceania, Hong Kong and outlying US islands to western US. Does not seem like mainland China is going to be affected by this so I doubt you really have to worry about Chinese farmers for the moment.
Hopefully it means that Australians playing WoW (like me) will have improve latency and connection to the servers at the US. Posted: May 1st, 2007 @ 6:53PM
Its been confirmed by Japan`s Shonen Jump manga magazine that the fillers will end and the new series, which will will pick up from where it left off in the manga, will start in Japan`s Spring time which is in Feb/Mar. The series will be retitled as Naruto: Shippuden or Naruto: Hurricane Chronicles.
Those who read the manga will understand the reason behind choosing the name "Hurricane Chronicles". Posted: December 10th, 2006 @ 4:51PM
Prey started it all. Though the portals in the game are stationary, the game pretty much established the technology: walking into a portal to get teleported onto a different part of the map, shooting through the portal. In fact in certain parts of the game and on one multiplayer map, you could actually shoot through the portal and hit yourself (thus killing yourself if you are not careful).

I`m going to watch it just for entertainment value. We all know this is fiction like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter (which the church also condemns). How can you miss a movie with Tom Hanks and Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf and Magneto), with Ron Howard as director? It would be like a sin in Hollywood. Posted: May 15th, 2006 @ 5:03PM
"It`s all about how the Chinese descovered the World before the Europeans."
I think its being long established that Chinese discovered the world first before any western nation in the past. Chinese(Mandrin and the dialects) has become the world`s most spoken language. If the westerns discovered the world first, the most spoken language would have been English. Posted: May 1st, 2006 @ 10:12PM
