[2019/09/07 10:43] Wizard Atazoth: hey there albertlr
[2019/09/07 10:43] albertlr Landar: greetings Wizard, sign looks great.
[2019/09/07 10:43] Wizard Atazoth: thanks
[2019/09/07 10:43] Wizard Atazoth: hopefully we have a good participation
[2019/09/07 10:44] albertlr Landar: would think it should be as good as past years.
[2019/09/07 10:45] albertlr Landar: And any addition to our coffers will be good for OSgrid. We are not in a serious condition presently.
[2019/09/07 10:45] albertlr Landar: Really much better financially than any time in the past.
[2019/09/07 10:46] Wizard Atazoth: yup awesome
[2019/09/07 10:46] albertlr Landar: just glad Dorian passed us by here in GA
[2019/09/07 10:47] albertlr Landar: They had mandatory evacuation east of I 95, that's why I moved to west of I 95 was getting tired of evacuations in the past.
[2019/09/07 10:49] Wizard Atazoth: yea i saw the mess it left in the Bahamas tho
[2019/09/07 10:49] albertlr Landar: that was terrible there, never had so much destruction in one place that I am aware of.
[2019/09/07 10:51] albertlr Landar: was like one big tornado sitting on those two islands for 24 hours.
[2019/09/07 10:52] Wizard Atazoth: yup
[2019/09/07 10:52] albertlr Landar: The planes they send out to take readings on the Hurricanes come from Savannah, because we are close but history shows that they usually avoid us here because our coast in indented.
[2019/09/07 10:53] albertlr Landar: unlike South and North Carolina, which stick out into the ocean.
[2019/09/07 10:53] George Equus is Online
[2019/09/07 10:54] albertlr Landar: Hello George....
[2019/09/07 10:55] George Equus: Hi Albert
[2019/09/07 10:55] George Equus: Glad to see you here...
[2019/09/07 10:55] George Equus: Hi Wizard
[2019/09/07 10:55] albertlr Landar: nice and peaceful here in GA now. hot again now that the hurricane has gone north.
[2019/09/07 10:56] George Equus: Others in Grand Bahamas. Jeez..
[2019/09/07 10:57] albertlr Landar: yea, afraid that the death toll there is going to be far greater than they have said so far.
[2019/09/07 10:57] Kayaker Magic is Offline
[2019/09/07 10:57] albertlr Landar: too many people missing.
[2019/09/07 10:57] George Equus: last I heard was 30, sound very few after seeing what is left
[2019/09/07 10:57] albertlr Landar: 43 now
[2019/09/07 10:58] Wizard Atazoth: hi george
[2019/09/07 10:58] George Equus: going to be in the hundreds my guess
[2019/09/07 10:58] albertlr Landar: yea
[2019/09/07 10:59] Kayaker Magic is Online
[2019/09/07 10:59] albertlr Landar: the worst damage we had here was from David many years ago, when it was a 1 and came from behind and out to the ocean.
[2019/09/07 11:00] George Equus: place look like someone shook it violently
[2019/09/07 11:00] albertlr Landar: It just knocked out Electricity for most of the county for up to 6 months.
[2019/09/07 11:00] Jeff Hall: hey everyone
[2019/09/07 11:00] albertlr Landar: Hi Jeff.
[2019/09/07 11:00] George Equus: Hi Jeff
[2019/09/07 11:01] albertlr Landar: They had to rewired the whole county, now with wiring either underground, or high up on tall towers now. That has improved a lot of the past problems.
[2019/09/07 11:01] albertlr Landar: That's what they need to do in Pureto Rico.
[2019/09/07 11:02] albertlr Landar: Could have sworn I saw Kayaker momentarily.
[2019/09/07 11:02] George Equus: Here we put everything in the ground, most visible power lines vanished
[2019/09/07 11:02] George Equus: Hi Kayaker

[2019/09/07 11:05] Caro Fayray is Online
[2019/09/07 11:05] albertlr Landar: We never really did have much rain here when Dorian passed, mainly wind. Which caused some power outages, but not many.
[2019/09/07 11:06] Wizard Atazoth: by the way if anyone needs a copy of the fundraiser poster send me an IM.
[2019/09/07 11:06] Caro Fayray: hiall sorry i'm late

[2019/09/07 11:21] albertlr Landar: well my life was disrupted from the threat of Dorian this week. We got a mandatory evacuation on Monday at 12 noon. Then it just sat on top of Burmuda for a while.
[2019/09/07 11:21] Kayaker Magic: I'm trying something fun: I got a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB memory and I'm trying it out as an OpenSim server on OSGrid.
[2019/09/07 11:21] Caro Fayray: oh wow albert
[2019/09/07 11:21] Caro Fayray: u home now?

[2019/09/07 11:22] Kayaker Magic: lol never left? Which part of mandatory evacuation is that?
[2019/09/07 11:22] albertlr Landar: we got very little rain, and some wind.
[2019/09/07 11:22] Caro Fayray: lol yes
[2019/09/07 11:22] albertlr Landar: They evacuated everyone to the east of I 95
[2019/09/07 11:23] albertlr Landar: I moved and live to the west of I 95
[2019/09/07 11:23] albertlr Landar: now
[2019/09/07 11:23] Caro Fayray: ok
[2019/09/07 11:23] albertlr Landar: I have evacuated so many times in the past got tired of doing that.
[2019/09/07 11:23] albertlr Landar: Flood plain goes to I 95.
[2019/09/07 11:24] Jeff Hall: what is "I 95"?
[2019/09/07 11:24] Caro Fayray: good move then
[2019/09/07 11:24] albertlr Landar: So if there was a major hurricane to hit us, it would cover up to I 95
[2019/09/07 11:24] albertlr Landar: Interstate I 95 , Federal highway
[2019/09/07 11:24] Kayaker Magic: For a friend of mine, I made a palm tree that bends over in the direction of the wind. Switched her region to configurable wind and cranked it up to match Dorian.
[2019/09/07 11:24] Jeff Hall: ah ok ty
[2019/09/07 11:24] Caro Fayray: lol

[2019/09/07 11:24] albertlr Landar: that sounds interesting.
[2019/09/07 11:25] albertlr Landar: I think winds in Burmuda got up to 185 they say
[2019/09/07 11:25] albertlr Landar: really bad.
[2019/09/07 11:25] Caro Fayray: devastation yes

[2019/09/07 11:26] Caro Fayray: scary
[2019/09/07 11:26] albertlr Landar: And when one of his windows was blown out, it caused his house to start falling apart around them.
[2019/09/07 11:26] albertlr Landar: from the extreme pressure.
[2019/09/07 11:27] albertlr Landar: he and his family were stuck for hours in a small alcove until the eye came over, and they went to a neighbors house that was still standing.
[2019/09/07 11:28] Caro Fayray: so many ppl with stories like that
