3:26:00 PM InterdictorSo it continues. At night I've been watching cable news non stop, alternating between MSNBC, CNN and FNC, using picture-in-picture to make sure I don't miss anything and can successfully navigate the commercial breaks. Last night I witnessed Anderson Cooper put the SMACK DOWN on a Senator from Louisiana.. I captured the audio for your listening pleasure: Anderson Cooper SMACKDOWN.
But during the day while I'm at work I don't have time to watch TV, so I keep tabs on things through WWL's Katrina Weblog which is very very useful and also I check the Interdictor blog which is absolutely incredible. It's the weblog of this HUGE ISP located in downtown New Orleans and they refuse to go down. They've got an incredible team out there, LIVING at the downtown office in the middle of this chaos but still somehow keeping their ISP running on the generators and backup systems they have. They have over 800,000 websites that they are responsible for, including one major "online backup service", but they also have a webcam going and take lots of pictures that they post online in their downtime. Here's a quote from the weblog on what kind of stuff they are up to:
One of the first things I do in the morning after my intitial security sweep of the building is check my messenger programs, email, and the comments section of this blog for the latest situation reports.So, checkout their weblog and if you want to read more about these guys, check this AP story on them. Someone has posted highlights from their webcam as well in case you can't get into their webcam. These guys deserve special recognition for their work to keep their enterprise in business and for being able to find the time to keep the world informed while they are doing it.
In my audio blog I talk about them and also give a sound seeing tour with the iTalk of my trip across the street. I almost get hit by a car! Good times.Permalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us
