Dear buzz crew:
This is Siavash from Iran, I'm happy to report that in past few days the internet speed on ADSL lines is better and we can access the sites better, but our fight against the government still continues.
After Twitter support for Iran, today Facebook added Persian language to their languages and now Persian can use the Facebook in Persian. I know Google is going to do some changes in their service for Iran too.
I'm just amazed for the amount of support of American sites for Iranian users and their attention to Iran. And I just wanted to thank them all.
I want to add a BiG BiG thank you to all buzz town citizens that sent me mails and Facebook messages and you guys on Cnet for reading my mail and paying attention to what is going on here.

THANK YOU

PS: Natali, I'm still the only Persian listener in Tehran, I have found other Persian listeners around the world, but not in Tehran

Best Regards

Siavash Ghahremany

Hey Buzzheads,

I took a couple screengrabs when the chatroom went over 1000 users. One shows gknee smiling as we hit 1001, and the other is Molly conveniently toasting when we hit 1013. Both pics are in my flickr account. Here’s 1013 and here’s 1001. Hope you like them, and I love the show!
