My window to the world


Yahoo! suggesting to copy your data somewhere else. Where?

Logged into my Yahoo! account, which I do every few weeks to check if anything is happening there (and i use it mainly for Flickr), to be presented with this:



Yahoo! suggests my data could be copied to another of the datacentres to make the service faster for me, but they don't actually know (or won't tell me) where that data will be located - note the "servers located in." with no mention of the country or region in the original screen.

It gives me all the confidence I need...
