    Got a call from the folks at Borneo Exotics asking me to post a message:

    A ship has run aground and cut the only cable delivering internet service to the island so they are totally without ability to check/answer emails for at least 5 days or so.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thank you Tony. We're back! If anyone comes across a Belgian sea captain skulking furtively in a dark alleyway somewhere, throttle him for us please! It's amazing really, the whole island, several million people were isolated from the internet for nearly a week, just because of a single cable.
