New Orleans Datacenter STILL up and running



Of course the thoughts and prayers of the nation and indeed the world are with those in the Gulf Coast area of the U.S. and particularly the situation in New Orleans. I ran across an amazing story of a webhost that is based in New Orleans and their datacenter is still running. They are keeping a blog of the goings on there.



I must admire their ability to keep things up and running and it sounds as though they have lined up options should they need to leave, but at this point I would suspect it might be time to bug out if they can. (Water? Food? sanitation?)

In one of his blog posts there is reference to an online audio feed of NOPD and National Guard radio. I’ve done some minimal searching without turning up the links.
