To be frank, this whole ordeal is a world away from me (doesn’t affect me in my day to day life) and I kinda feel the same about it as I did 9/11 — that it just seems like a movie or whatever.
Anyway, the point of this post is I thought I’d share some interesting links. The first is a blog run by a system admin. It used to be his personal and such blog, but now it’s turned into a blog about the whole ordeal. He’s in downtown New Orleans with a diesel generator powering his building, webcam, etc. You can find it here: http://mgno.com/ (see also: http://www.nola-intel.org/)
The other interesting link is an audio stream of a scanner down there. Interesting to hear all of the military and such talk. For a list of repeaters, go here: http://wiki.nola-intel.org/index.php/Radio_Info
And on a closing note, seriously, WHAT THE FUCK at the people who are shooting at the police, hospital employees, etc. It’s not their fault you didn’t get your dumb ass out of the city 5 days ago when the evacuation order was given. They are just trying to do their job and save people. New Orleans has turning into a warzone, I swear.
Oh, and Foamy owns you.
