Concepcion is starting to get connections back sporadically. We are going to see about tracking down the top of the list. If anyone makes contact, please update so we can move on to the next people.

Checking in. All ok here, and we're located south of Puerto Montt, North of Calbuco on the peninsula. several visiting gringos staying with us for the interim, rationing gas at $5000 CLP per person per trip/day, Calbuco stores ok, minor building damage in the area, local 1st-8th grade school supposed to start 3/8 instead of 3/3 because 1) gas rationing and 2) food supplies redirected to Concepcion. Friends in Santiago report the same. Friends in Concepcion checked in via Skype Monday evening right after the electricity came back on, slowly recovering. Community cooking pots, husbands taking turns on security watch, and glad the electricity is back on. Friends in Talcahuano indicate it is a mess. Electricity and internet spotty here (via Mobilstar 3.5G) but now reliable. Spoke with head of Vialidad Calbuco this morning and he indicated diesel is dedicated to emergency services first, law enforcement next, and finally the municipalities. They are getting a couple trucks together to haul potatoes to Concepcion. Two young travelers arrived last night, and the buses are still running Calbuco <> Puerto Montt.

How does it work on 40+ gigs of email?
Will do when I get a chance. On large files, I would first redirect the output into another file (">templist") then search that. For searching many files and keeping the output separate, I would write a little BASH script with a for loop (can do that later if you want).

Glad you have found him now! When you said he's probably alive and helping at a shelter, that sounded about right from his postings I've seen.

Thanks guys.

Has anyone tried to contact T_ROBO? He does seem to be unaccounted for?

Do we have any last know details about him?

I am starting to fear we might be getting through the easy part of this operation. Reconstruction and getting aid in now that we have found so many people, and communications are starting to function in even some of the worst hit areas will be a long battle to fight on all fronts. We are still very much in the damage assessment phase of this.

Glad to hear Tom is okay, the pictures I have seen from Dichato were definitely reason for concern.

Responding to the email I received, here in Talca the city downtown was pretty much destroyed. the most damage by far came from tsunamis hitting the coast.

Hi all, I am fine. I happen to be in the US visiting family. Will return when it is possible I live in Horcòn and will be contacting some of you for help once I get to Santiago. Thanks, Kali

the following i have flagged as somewhat concerning:

eahlay PM sent, no response, posted a year ago to say was moving to valpo, has not been heard from since
