"Getting the HDD stream back on par within a year is a fantastic achievement."

Crying over their loss will not be of any help for the people of Thailand and it is good to hear that they want to leave that disaster behind them and move foreward. But they have to keep in mind that another disaster can hit at any time and should get prepared for that.

I am continually amazed at how well the peoples of Thailand and Japan recovered so quickly from the devastation.  It certainly makes my day to day moans and groans seem totally insignificant.  Getting the HDD stream back on par within a year is a fantastic achievement.

Having suffered a minor experience with flooding (which I am still not over), it is unimaginable what the Thai factories must do to recover. Once the water is gone, the mold, mildew and other damage-recovery just begins. The amount of waste to be hauled away must be staggering.

Our basement is still a mess two years after a 100-year flood in New England. On the grand scheme of things, it's nothing. I hope Thailand rebuilds better than it was before. I don't think we will ever refinish our basement again! Parts Search
