Re: Metric metrics
But there must be a reason to spend all that money to reroute an undersea cable, no? Can it be just so that holiday-makers can watch the YouTubes while working on their windburns?

Re: Metric metrics
Not a sure a blimmin' great data center humming away on the Tresco seafront would sit too happily with the Scillys' status as a premier holiday destination. (Second only to the Isle of Wight.)

Nokia's Predictive Traffic
The sky is the limit when trying to find applications for predictive analytics and cloud computing. Nokia's Predictive Traffic application is going to be of great help for drivers specially when facing extreme weather conditions in winters.

Having alerts right on your dashboard on the condition of the roads will contribute to reduce road accidents. This will be great as a feature in autonomous cars.

Re: Metric metrics
Thanks for the clarification. Does this mean that the Scillians are in prime position to create the world's first gigabit archipelago? Will something other than seagulls flock to the aits of Scilly as a result? Is there room for a data center on one of the rocks?

Re: Metric metrics
Are you sitting comfortably? Here goes:

'A 939- kilometre cable between Porthcurno, Cornwall, and Santander, Spain, which had remained unused on the seabed of the Atlantic Ocean since 2006, was diverted to the Isles of Scilly during a month-long operation involving the 12,184 tonne cable ship Resolute.'

It wasn't my idea.

Metric metrics
Paul -- about your Scilly item: help out a metrically challenged Amurikan. A 939km cable was diverted to a pile of rocks less than 50km off the Cornwall coast?
