      Well, consider that fiber optic system might be part of why the internet is working right now so that I can kill time on Flcikr ..... salute! to these workers. XD They should give them better chairs though; those don't look very comfortable for long shifts.

      Reminds me of the English cotton mills of the 1800s.

      I have a picture like this of the inside of the Jilong fiber optic plant in China. Looks similar.
