|Just a note to say I hope all the hackers are safe in Queensland. The flooded area is reported to be roughly the size of Texas, America's second largest state. The area declared a disaster zone is 75% of Queensland - roughly twice the area of Texas, or roughly the size of Alaska.|
So if you're in the area, or were in the area, or have afilliations with the area, I hope you're safe, and wish you the best on the road to recovery, whenever that may start.
