Operation: Hunker Down!

Just an FYI, in the event that we don’t post for a few days, there’s no need to fear. It’s just that measly old hurricane Ike is bearing down to swallow up our fair coast of Texas. Ground zero happens to be Houston, which is where we’re located.

So if I do in fact lose power and am unable to update til early next week, just know that you guys rule. For real, thanks for all the great feedback on Web Zeroes.

Some cool stuff coming next week.

UPDATE, 5pm Saturday: This is your friendly webmaster, Jeff, speaking. I’ve just heard from Eddy, and both he and Nick made it through the storm alright (Daniel lives in Dallas, and I live in Austin). Eddy asked me to go ahead and update the site so that folks wouldn’t be worried about them. Eddy and Nick are both without power at the moment, but hopefully things will be back up and running in a day or two. I’ll keep you posted on here if there are further developments.

    Typhoons, hurricane, and here in Australia were enjoying nice hot 30 degree days (Celcius) In Singlets and thongs.

    Hope you guys are alright through the storm.

    Heh, well good luck. I’m up in North East Texas near Dallas so it won’t be much by the time it gets here. :p

    No kidding, I was born in Houston and raised in Sugarland. Ironically I go to college in Florida now and I haven’t taken any direct hits yet from hurricanes in 10 years living here.

    Yeah, I’m new to Houston (Spring, to be exact), so the most exciting weather I’ve seen is the leftovers of hurricanes that tend to piss out on San Antonio.

    I was wondering what you guys were gonna do. I had assumed that your server was in Houston, but you don’t seem too worried about that.

    Where is your server, btw?

    One of my teachers said that one of her friends drove by a gas station in Winsburrow,TX today. Gas there was $5 a gallon. O.o

    I wish that Hurricane Ike had come a little closer to us here in Miami. I had no school days off just because a big cloud decided to go south. 🙁

    Not exactly priority one at the moment. The city is a mess, and the park near me is torn to pieces. No power at my place, writing this from my brother’s. Just wanted to check in and let people know we’re all good.

    Dude, is your place okay? Besides the obvious power outage, did any extreme damage befall your home? Cause that would really suck.

    I hear some people’s power could be out for a week. I live in Fort Worth, but we didn’t get any effects of Ike.

    Heh, well that was just there and most likely because of hurrcain Ike. Normally it’s around $3.60 or so and it didn’t go up to $5 where I live. :p

    Yeah, I’m about 2 hours away from the Dallas Fort Worth area and all we got was some rain. How high did gas go up there?

    Are you serious or did you misplace the decimal? 25 DOLLARS A GALLON!!?? That’s insane! That can’t possibly be right!

    Edit: Please tell me that you misplaced the decimal. 🙁

    Stay safe! The hurricane did a real number on the coast (It screwed up the electricity pretty bad ;-;). Hopefully Entergy will have things up and running soon. Hurricanes so suck.
