Rita Update - more desertion

Wireless Networking 7

I updated the flickr, as I took a few shots on the freeway (they're the last three). It looks like everyone who was going, is gone, because there are nearly no cars on the freeway.

Now it's just us chickens left.

This will probably be it for my updates, as one of the SO's clients invited us to stay at her place. If they have internets, then I'll try to post more later (assuming the power stays on, yadda, yadda).

If not, see you on the other side.

Try the best you can to delay your retreat to the NorthEast for at least 18 hours from now. By then, the rush will be over- and the freeways will be relatively clear.

The other side ROCKS! (1)

...you're going to hunker down?

*runs away*

Seriously, good luck. Don't expect anything to work afterwards, at least, not initially. Assuming you're in a safe location (and as long as you're out of a mandatory evacuation zone and your home-to-be is prepared, you should be fine), you'll at least be able to spend some time not doing anything. And that's a good thing.

Good luck... (1)

If they have internet

If not, you can spend your time there pulling a few km of CAT5 through their house and setting up a LAN server/router. They'll thank you later :).

PS: I hope you don't suffer too many damages.. Good luck!
