Re: Katrina could inundate New Orleans

This post is very OT, but I think events warrant the protocol
violation this time. If you're in New Orleans, I'm sure the health of
the local internet infrastructure becomes secondary to getting your
ass above sea level...
Looks like a lot of people are going to lose everything in this
one...If you're one of them, you are in my thoughts.
If you're not in a position to offer first-hand assistance, I would
recommend making a donation to the American Red Cross' disaster
relief fund via redcross.org TODAY. The faster they get our money,
the faster they can be down there helping folks dig out, assuming
there's a city left to go back to.
If any displaced NANOGers wind up in the Atlanta area, speak up - I'm
sure there are people here that can offer assistance, maybe a bed, or
at the very least help you drown your sorrows down at the Vortex Bar
If nothing else, post and let us know you're okay.
(P.S. This offer not valid if your name is Ronnie Scelson)

Wow. It doesn't look good for New Orleans and surrounding area.
Just curious what measures ISP's in the area may have been going
through in preparation for this (what appears to be huge) hurricane.
