FEMA updated their online FAQ on "Monday, 09-Sep-2005" which, of course is impossible, unless you're part of the government. Maybe that's why some of these government agencies botched the hurricane relief efforts? The simple lack of a common calendar?

Anyway, FEMA explains that they are now, as of "Monday, 09-Sep-2005" presumably, "in the process of modifying the application so that it will be available to additional browsers." How long that will take is anybody's guess, especially since the boys and girls at FEMA seem to have their own totally unique calendar, but we cynically tend to believe support for non-IE browsers will be later rather than sooner.

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
