This guy works for DirectNIC. They do webhosting for an assload of sites, including Something Awful. He's been giving using his blog as an archive of his epxerience in New Orleans since Katrina hit. It's awe-inspiring. Hell it's movie inspiring. Grim survivalist fare liken to Escape from New York or 28 Days. I would like to hope that in a similar situation, I would act much the same. I thank God I am relatively safe from such things, but heed, children, for what happened, the breakdown of civilization in its entirety, is possible elsewhere. Let this serve as warning. People are stupid. And never understimate the power of stupid people in large numbers. Ever.
a mighty fortress is our God
