Good luck and stay safe. Get as far north as possible. I've seen video footage of Harvey and that was bad enough. So really get far far north. Praying for you from Cali.

Yeah that's why I have invested in a NAS, because leaving a system on 24/7 wasn't helping the energy bills. Only issue is I cant fold on it but at least I can access it from anywhere at anytime without it using that much electricity.

If you don't mind me asking where in South Wales are you?

I reckon mine is pretty greedy once you factor in the 7x enterprise class disks, SAS expander and megaraid hba.

I'm down in Newport.

Thanks guys. I'm not able to evacuate, but I'll be in a pretty safe place. I just hope it's not another Andrew

I just completed my last WU for a while...keep the production up until I get back, eh?

Good to hear! Any damage to your house? My sister in Tampa lost so many trees. What's unbelievable though is she had a unicorn pool float that stayed in the pool. Something like this:

No damage to the house at all! There's lots of tree damage and I just got power back yesterday, but other than that I think we got very lucky.

Funny about the pool float! I heard Tampa fared pretty well...the Keys and Jacksonville got hit pretty hard though.

Awesome, glad everything turned out good for you. I haven't been to her place in years, but it was fully wooded around the house. Now it looks like a war zone. Sucks to lose those trees, but I guess considering what could have happened it's not a bad deal.

Glad you are back and survived without issues.

Two tremendous hurricanes with so much devastation in a short time period is hard to take. My best to all effected, sorry to all for your losses and pain of reconstruction.
