An interesting anecdote from Bhagmalpur, India

We just turned on the Internet two weeks ago (thx to Anish Mangal and
Kartik Perisetla), but power has been largely missing. The server and
Wi-Fi paraphernalia lives at my uncle's house. The kids miss the
access a lot. So, eventually they pooled money, bought a liter of
Diesel and showed up at my Uncle's house, asking him to run the
generator, so that they could get on the Internet!

What have we done! :-)
