Other people have contracted funny marriages with people they have only met on the internet.

            In addition, in the developing countries, the problem of erratic power supply, ineffective and inadequate telecommunication systems are obstacles to effective utilization of internet facilities. 
These issues have to be addressed. It is currently nearly impossible not to be exposed in some way to the interne. The fact is that  the internet is available to us as users of technology and it will have a substantial impact in the way we do things day by day WEB has spread like bush fire and now circles the world.
