Hey all!

This is a warning: Jacksonville Florida is under a Hurricane Warning for Hurricane Floyd. At this time we are not sure if the hurricane is going to hit us, but be advised that if we are ordered to evacuate you can expect outages with this site, The Firing Line, and several other sites that are hosted on our server.

Our upstream provided happens to be located about 200 meters from the St Johns River, and as such, is in danger of flooding. They are taking steps to minimize the effects, but again, nothing is sure at this point.

We are making arrangements to try to minimize down time, however our primary concern is the physical safety of our employees and families, and the safety of the server second. In other words, we'll try our hardest to rescue it, but I'm not drowning for this site if it get's submerged.

Thanks for your understanding, and we appreciate your continued support.

Just looked at a weather map of the hurricane...
As Tom Clancy put it at the opening of "Without Remorse" It's either a big hurricane or the biggest tornado known to man...

or something like that...

You guys down there be careful!
