[] B4RN

Out in the middle of nowhere..
There are trenches in the fields with funny cables sticking out of them…
The reason? B4RN!
I wonder if it will be fast enough to download CMIP?! Before everyone gets too excited, in Japan we had the world’s fastest interwebulas, but access to a lot of sites was often a bit slow, particularly those in Europe, and downloading CMIP something of a nightmare. Nowadays of course it is Japanese sites that are comparatively slow compared to European ones. So, once they have sorted out outer-Lancashire, B4RN could perhaps go sub-marine and fix up the big inter-tube under the Pacific. Despite these caveats, if we can find a suitable B4RNed property (barn or otherwise) it can only be an advantage for doing BlueSkiesResearch-ing.

How long until you can run fibre optic cable from Europe to Japan through the NE passage?
