    Ooh, VB has come a long way. I first caught a glimpse of it while I was still in high school in 1997. It was a nice upgrade from BASIC in MS-DOS which I had started using in 1993.

    I'm also loving the SQL 2016 progress.

    Ars Technica has a recent article that talks about the tech behind the Internet and particularly goes in depth about the undersea cables. I particularly liked the detail of the cable design and how they get the data pushed all that distance.

    It's a good read and is on topic with what Mark brought up about Microsoft laying the cable and the photo of the large cable spool on the cable ship.
