Everyone's talking about New Orleans right now; looks like a pretty good mess, along with the increasing mob action and conditions everyone is in. It's beginning to look like most of underwater New Orleans is pretty much a write-off; it will be interesting to see how much money we spend trying to restore things (or if we accept that it's another disaster waiting to happen and help people relocate instead). I've been following a very interesting insider's view of how things look right now; they decided to stay behind and keep their data center operational, and have been giving a play-by-play account of what life in New Orleans is like after the hurricane. Pretty grim stuff.
Which, of course, makes recent events at work seem paltry in comparison,
but it seems like the last time a major national disaster occurred, things
were going pretty lousy at work too. Maybe my ongoing job satisfaction is
tied in some way to national problems? I guess that means you can blame me
for what happened. ;-) Anyway, that's about all I'm going to comment on
regarding my employment right now; if you know me well enough, you already
have the details, and if you don't, well, then I guess this blog entry
wasn't for you. Sorry.
