Hurricane Katrina -- blog of note

Our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

slashdot mentioned a blog of an Information Technology tech in New Orleans, Michael Barnett, who is with a computer support team in a high rise in downtown New Orleans. They're keeping the data center running. The running commentary, starting on Saturday with the understatement of the year ("Hmm. This could actually be a nasty storm."), is fascinating. It's a combination first person account, and posts related to keeping things going. As of this writing, they are still in the building. Check it out.

God speed Michael and team.
