Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. September 22, 1999-We at ABIT Computer Corporation would like to offer our condolences and express our sadness at the devastation that was brought upon Taiwan after Tuesday's at 1:47 a.m. earthquake. We would also like to take this opportunity to reassure our customers all over the world that ABIT did not sustain any damage to our headquarters in Xi Zhi nor our factory in Tao Yuan. There will be some delays in shipments from the island as there has been a severe power shortage island wide. Currently Tai Power is having to ration power giving local residential areas first priority, leaving our factory and headquarters presently without electricity. We should be up and running again within 1 to 2 days. Additionally there will be the Moon Festival holiday this Friday as well as another national holiday on the following Tuesday, creating a period of reduced activity for ABIT until next week. We want to assure our customers and personnel worldwide that normal production and operations will be resumed by next week. ABIT is deeply saddened by the tragedy that has befallen the victims of the quake and would like to again express our best wishes and condolences for those affected. We would also like to thank our friends and customers around the world for their support and want all of our associates to know that we will be trying to do our best to keep up our production, service and support.

Ook de sites van Asus en Chaintech zijn weer online, maar er wordt niet gerept over de rampspoed die het land getroffen heeft.

Omdat het land nog enige zware naschokken te verduren heeft gehad, en nieuwe niet uitgesloten zijn kunnen de problemen voor het transport en de productie (vanwege de stroom voorzieningen die puur op het humanitaire vlak gericht zijn) nog wel even blijven bestaan. Laten we echter ook de slachtoffers onder de bevolking niet vergeten. Zij verdienen ook onze aandacht en steun.

Taiwan ROCKS !!!!!
letterlijk...
Zo'n aarbeving is natuurlijk verschrikkelijk voor die mensen en voor de wereldwijde computer industrie. Zelf ben ik echter ook nog niet gerust over de spanningen die er de laatste tijd waren met china. Taiwan in oorlog zou een enorme ramp zijn voor de hele wereld (pc's zijn tegenwoordig bijna belangrijker dan olie)!
Jammer..........
Shake it baby!!!!!!!!!!!
Due to the seriousness of the September 21 earthquake that struck Taiwan, which registered a 7.3 on the open-ended Richter scale, Taiwan's mainboard manufacturers lost electrical power and were all forced to cease operations. According to Tai Power, Taiwan's mainboard manufacturers are expected to have power restored within the next two or three days. Previous expectations of better shipments in September have been dashed, with September sales revenues now facing decreases.

According to the General Manager of AOpen Inc., the demand for electronic components will become more severe as the loss of power and working days will cause Taiwan's mainboard manufacturers to suffer delays of shipments of their OEM orders.

The General Manager of ECS (Elitegroup Computer Systems Co., Ltd.) stated that the earthquake didn't cause too much damage to their factories, as most of their factories are located in China. The main reason for ceasing operations in Taiwan was the loss of electrical power.

Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.'s Taoyuan and Hsindian factories also ceased operations on September 21. A company official stated that though their SMT production equipment shifted slightly, it wouldn't impact the total sales revenues of the company this month. Gigabyte stated that their factories may begin operations within the next two days.

Basically, Taiwan's mainboard manufacturers didn't suffer too many losses in this tragic event. In contrast, the shortages caused by Taiwan's decreased IC, memory and chipset production may have a negative effect on global IT businesses.
Betreft afhankelijk van computers het volgende. Ik werk bij een bedrijf met een NT-server waar wij verschillende applicaties opdraaien. Door het verwisselen van alleen de tape-streamer is de server gecrashed (vraag niet hoe dat komt). Resultaat was dat het gehele bedrijf van 20 mensen bijna twee dagen niet konden doen. Dit bewijst maar weer hoe (ongemerkt) wij afhankelijk zijn geworden...

At least 23 of Taiwan's 26 integrated circuit (IC) plants are located at Hsinchu, which is expected to remain without power or water for another two days. Telephone contact is intermittent.

"The IC companies in Hsinchu have very little tolerance to this kind of disaster," said Leonard Hsueh, research chief at SinoPac Securities.

Companies with facilities in Taichung are expected to suffer most. Analysts said Siliconware Precision Industries and Macronix International Corp have warned of production problems.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co said wafer output would drop 10 percent this month.
