RE: Katrina could inundate New Orleans

Hopefully the storm will pass a bit to the east of the city thus sparing us
the worst.

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 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  
& Grill...

If nothing else, post and let us know you're okay.


(P.S. This offer not valid if your name is Ronnie Scelson)
