Some administrative stuff

I have been offered technical support by some Algiers-connected folks. Their programmers are setting up something more robust on dedicated servers. I've sent them a taxonomy - we're waiting right now for the DNS propogation (for those who are not technical, that mostly means we're just waiting for the domain to distribute through the web.... sort of..... lol).

Like many, I've been frustrated somewhat by the larger, city or parish-wide forums. Although it worries me a little to have people going to so many different places to post, I am still waiting.... and there is need. This link will bring you to a more geographically-structured forum, so you can start connecting with people from your neighborhood(s).

Still working on the mail... bear with me....

    Thank you so much for the info. Im a former "point" resident as of 1 week ago. Our furniture is still in our home, hopefully, on 529 Pacific. Big thanks to Vinnie for all his dedication and loyal protection to our neighborhood.

    I learnt from Jean-Paul Morrell (the son of New Orleans' City Councilwoman Cynthia Hedge Morrell and State Representative Arthur Morrell, brother of NOPD Special force Sergeant Todd F. Morrell) that NOPD has not received food or even bullets from the federal government.

    They are down to about 10 bullets per office. Looters have raided the armory (that was supposed to be protected by national guardsmen that weren't there) and police officers have been eating Peanut Butter sandwiches because the Feds won't even give them MREs.

    Jean-Paul also has learnt that the National Guard had not been deployed into New Orleans before Thursday. Most of the national guard troops, reported to be in the region, are in Baton Rouge awaiting orders.

    Jean-Paul also informed me that the Federal Government is requesting that the Mayor of New Orleans relinquish control of New Orleans. The Mayor has refused to do so, stating that he is the legally elected representative from New Orleans to represent the people's interest. Guilliani was not asked to relinquish control of New York. Mayor Nagin is a democrat.

    Polimom, your website has been a blessing to me as a Westbanker and I am not even near Algiers Point. I don't know how you're doing it, but I just wanted to say thank you. Please stay safe.
