I feel bad for this guy. I think everyone I know has had a good rant like that about one thing or another at some point over the last few days. I know
I have. Everyone is under a lot of strain.
From the moment of the earthquake until the evening of the 17th, all Japanese TV stations were covering news, around the clock. At this moment (2:05
pm, 3/18), four of the six stations I get are showing news. One of those will continue with 24 hour news for the forseeable future, while the rest
will alternate to allow both crews and audience a bit of a break. However, as I've seen several times, breaking news takes immediate precedent over
Why resume regular programming? Because people - like me, for example - are burned out. Sorry, but I can't watch it anymore. Not around the clock, at
least. Someone sent me a stream of a hockey game the other day, and that was a couple of hours of pure bliss to take my brain off the hook for a
couple of hours.
Youtube, however, is not blocked. There were apparently limited restrictions in place if you were on a US base as far as high volume sites went, but
that didn't affect anyone off base. I haven't had any trouble accessing any information at all, and likewise I can attest that skype is working
perfectly. If anything, it's better than normal.
