Another quick update: Roger J. Carlson has set up a refugee camp for AWers, and there are a little more than a hundred of us there so far. Today's mission is to make sure we're all still writing. Toward that goal, Tri has revived the "Travel Edition" of the Weekend Progress Report (where AWers normally check in to report on what they've accomplished that week on their works in progress). He has Barb's taser on loan, and he isn't afraid to use it.
I got six pages down this morning, which felt great. I didn't think I'd be able to concentrate that long on anything except... y'know.
If you need an assignment, I've posted one here. Hurry up, because it's due tomorrow.
No further word on the retrieval of our hostages (er... databases).
