Re: New Zealand Tsunami Status

Hi Chris and all,

I'm over here in New Zealand and I think they were expecting the wave
to hit at about 1m high, but I'm not sure if that was the case. It
seems like there's been little evacuation going on up there and that
everything is mostly safe and sound. Further down where I am they were
expecting the wave to hit between 30-40cm, but it was apparently as
little as 2cm.

While I'm here I may as well introduce myself. I'm Zane, a web and
software developer from Gisborne, New Zealand. I'm a daily user of
Sawfish and absolutely couldn't live without it (even submitted a
theme to the wiki). I'm always keeping an eye on the mailing list and
thought I'd better respond to this. Thank you to everyone involved
with keeping Sawfish alive!
