oh noes, the news!

here is a description of the carnage of a recent hawaiian earthquake: Boulders fell on highways, rock walls fell down and television sets were knocked off stands, Governor Lingle said.
meanwhle, here's comfort: Don Blakeman, a geophysicist at the US National Earthquake Information Center, said there was no risk of a Pacific-wide tsunami... "But you never know about these things."

Whoa... I talked to someone affected by this earthquake last night. Phones must be slightly fubar, he was calling his ISP and got forwarded to me (I am not his ISP). He was in Honolulu and just had power come back on at 0100 Pacific time (2200 local), but had no internets, and was wondering if I could hook him up. Alas I could not.

But him calling makes a bit more sense. Wow! Touched by the newsley appendage!
