Thailand-based users of several torrent sites have reported problems connecting to p2p sites generally. The scale of the problem varies but the problem may be caused by configuration issues at one particular Thai ISP.
There is a discussion of the problem, along with possible solutions, in this thread.
This is something we really do try to avoid but large scale disasters around the world seem to be becoming more frequent. Whether it's an earthquake in Haiti, a tsunami in the Indian Ocean or flooding in Pakistan, this planet we all share has the ability to destroy the lives of millions of people almost in an instant.
No matter where in the world you live, you have probably seen some of the news coverage of the massive flooding in the north of Pakistan, where many millions of people have had their lives ripped apart by the flood waters. Obviously it will take years to get things back to normal but the people who are suffering need help now.
If you can, please consider making a donation to any of the following charities. Further details are on the relevant websites.
And let's all hope that it is many, many years before we need to make this kind of appeal again.
Or please find your local equivalent!
