update - gustav

I have been so busy and stressed that I have not even
been taking pictures. Clay has been doing some blogging
here and there; I have been working whenever I have a
signal on this satellite thing at the old hunting lodge
we are staying in. Satellite internet latency is even
worse than advertised.

Today we went into town where I had been offered an
office by one of the family friends and I worked for
six or seven hours putting our hosting business online
at its backup location; hours of restoring backups and
arguing with domain hosting, but the users are now
able to log in and get work done.

Still in North MS; can't come home unless I can be sure
that all of the business-online work is done. We're going
to stay on colo until they get grid power back at the
house. The T1 there was out Tuesday so dad was running
the business off his iPhone.

We heard today from a friend that passed by our house that
it looked fine, he talked to one of our neighbors and found
out that our block has no power yet.

I am off to go join dear sleeping boyfriend and dog in
bed in this little cabin of ours. Hope to come home soon.

(also. forgot to put twitter info in feed. here.)

Thanks Chris. We got home yesterday evening and have power in the Irish Channel.
