Re: now it's really serious in New Orleans
While I'm not in a position to do this myself, as much as I would like to, I'm wondering if any of the relief organizations that are mobilizing down there are in need of volunteer IT/networking clue and hands setting up C&C infrastructure and whatnot. If anyone knows who the appropriate folks to contact if you're in a position to help out, even if it's just over the long weekend, I would recommend posting here.

If unabated the water will go to the level of Lake Pontchartrain, about 3 feet ASL, which means, for example, 9 feet of water on St Charles Street. The mayor called the missed opportunity a "blunder" and said this would unfold over the next 12-15 hours. Now it's time to really worry. fh
