Stupid fibre cable outage yesterday

If anyone experienced slow internet from around 2am to 10am yesterday, you're not alone. As it turns out there was a problem with the Southern Cross cable link between here and the US, and Optus, Powertel and MCI (all the backend suppliers my ISP uses) have at least part of their international capacity supplied by the SX link. As a result browsing was extremely slow on many networks as they had reached capacity.
