More from New Orleans

If it was not a true life event, one would think Directnic's continuing struggle in New Orleans was a sequel to Escape from New York or some other Hollywood-scripted thriller. Sadly, it's the real thing, and worse for those stranded there. Here's a selection of news articles on Directnic:

Heroic New Orleans Hosting Outfit Battles On (The Register) - Sept. 1
Directnic Stays Online During Katrina (Web Host Industry Review ) - Sept. 1
News Roundup from CNN

Update: The Directnic site is now down. Here's the most recent statement from the Directnic blog:

"11:50 am Update. My first tactical mistake. We were unprepared to accept the fuel when it arrived. The fuel arrived way too soon for us and we did not have all the empty drums down one ground floor when they got here. The driver had other deliveries to make, so rather than waste his time, I told him we'd recoordinate and be ready for him later today or tomorrow.

That's the bad news. Here's the worse news:

All of our providers are dropping. We're down to one. We have enough fuel to keep us powered for a long time, but we could lose internet access soon if our last provider drops.

So I guess what I'm saying is that any moment could be my last moment online. If we do lose internet, Outpost Crystal might have to be abandoned by all but Sig and Myself. I've got to get Crystal out of here safely and relocated to someplace out of this state. I'm working on escape routes now."

Wow. It goes on, read it here.
