    gives the party leaders some good cover for their public policies:

    "see, if we were not still a 19th century economy, imagine what this outage would have done to our nation's commerce"

    Heya DS. Well that was another reason I mentioned it.....24hrs and no response. Also they pulled out of the UN Security Counsel Meeting on the Human Rights Violations.....last week. That would be before the Sony Hack.

    In that case, if it so easy, **** it.

    Let's shut down our entire economy cuz you never know, a bunch of sand fleas or fat umpalumpas might make a threat and might carry out that threat (it's .000001% chance of doing what they preached they would do but hey, that's .000001% too much).

    And his country suffers for it.

    I'm surprised they even had widespread internet access.

    I read earlier today that the DPRK has somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 individual IP addresses.

    By comparison, just the U.S. Department of Defense alone has 42 decillion individual IP addresses. That's 42 million billion billion billion.

    Now that Internet access is again available in North Korea, North Korea blamed the U.S. and its allies for the outage. From Computer World:

    North Korea's state-run media was silent about the outage while it was under way, although on Friday the official Korean Central News Agency came out swinging against the U.S. and its allies. It said the outage was due to an "intensive and persistent virus attack," although offered no further details.

    "The DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker to the enemies' cyber attacks that have reached a very grave phase as part of their moves to stifle it," it said, using the official name for the country, The Democratic Peoples' Republic of Korea.
