    Smart move on the monitors. Next time, put the keyboards/mice inside the desks. Garbage bags are indispensable.

    Sorry to see the destruction. I've been through a few here in South Florida and sympathize.

    Man, this is scary.

    In Singapore, if a tree branch falls, the news makes a big oh-ah.

    Compared to this...

    I hope you get back to normal life soon...

      thanks guys. I appreciate your kind words.

      Really, the only thing of great value in my business is my data.

      Everything else was just paper sturf. (i.e. Marketing Library, swipe files,
      old products, etc.)

      We pulled out all our servers and storage devices and put them
      in the mini-van right next to our kids, clothes and photos.

      But hey, I wanted to move out of that office anyway. ha ha ha

      Hi headhunting,

      That's what MY office looks like NORMALLY.......
      I shouldn't laugh, but that was funny!

      David, best wishes to you...I hope the clear up isn't too much of a pain.

    Does anyone know if you could "deposit" your computers in your friendly bank's vault for safekeeping? No, I'm not joking. I'm really serious!

    I wouldn't want to have to buy new equipment after a catastrophe of this magnitude. So, if anyone knows of such a service, please share the info.

    David, glad that you were able to save all things and people precious to you. That's really all that matters.

    Many, many blessings to you and everyone else as you recover from this devastation.

    Hey David,

    How are you considering, I hate to see things like this, but as you say, things could have been a lot worse

    Good Luck and stay safe

    Does your office offer insurance? A lot of them are required to at least mention it to you if they offer it directly, and most will bring it up.

    Some forms of traveler's insurance also cover a surprising amount of office stuff.

    My first office was the other half of a Metlife building, so the guys there clued me into all the available insurance (and clued themselves in on my wallet)

      You dont know how lucky you are until you see something like this!
      I would have been devastated if that happened to me!
      I suppose people in Ameriaca must somehow get used to this sort of thing?

      David - I am really impressed with your attitude! If the kids and the mrs are good - its just a bonus that you saved your data too!

      Im blown away - you see this stuff on the news on foxtel, but until you see how it directly affects someone you dont really understand!
      Here in Perth Western Australia -although it gets pretty hot - I feel even more lucky than usual today!

      I sincerely hope you get everything sorted out quickly - my thoughts are with you - take care.

    Thanks for sharing this David. Its devastating and horrible to contemplate what people are going through after Ike and the other cyclones. My understanding is that Katrina is still impacting on lives and Gustav with more too come.

    I'd leave home if I were you. My sympathy to you and all others now cleaning up after it. At least you still have us to share and talk to.

    God bless

    Here sending you my best wishes. While I hated that this hurricane hit us, I am SO grateful it did not hit Florida.

    Hi I've decided that maybe I should give up on selling my infographic templates product or ebook before I've even had a chance to start. I can't seem to find an affiliate marketer who can help make the launch a success. I'm willing to give 70% commission. I'm down on my last dime. I really don't know what to do. Does anyone know or are an affiliate marketer that could help or guide me? Any advice is appreciated.

    In case you have been wondering, yes, this is a true story. And yes, this has been one of the most pointless discussions I had to make in my life. Could I have avoided it in the first place? I leave you to be the judge. As a content writer, you are a lone wolf or a lone ranger, whichever you prefer. I do my job. One on one with the client. That's it. Yet, every now and then, I have to become a part of some team, more or less voluntarily. In most of the cases, I have to work with designers, animators, and similar. Not such a big deal, you may say. We all play in the same team. We want to get over with our jobs, get paid, and move on. It makes sense.

    I want to be a vendor on clickbank, I am a software developer and I want to release a product for clickbank. But I have no any project ideas, what would you suggest for me? I mainly know C# and develop bots or internet marketing tools kind of projects. But I need to develop useful bots since CB has some strict rules, e.g they don't accept crawling/scraping tools etc.
