Estimates are now around 341 dead, with still some missing. A tragedy, for sure. My condolences (regardless of how impacting they are) out to the island of Java.
I remember taking high school geography years ago and learning about this thing called a Tsunami. It seemed like something theoretical, that probably wouldn't happen in my lifetime, you know like a space probe getting sucked by a super-massive black-hole. now for it to happen twice in as many years is out of this world! It's really crazy. My sympathies go out to all the victims!! Its really sad.
I really sympathize with Indonesian people. With their country gone through so many disasters this past months and years i condole with them. I hope people will still bother to help them for another time. if my frihost score can only be converted to a million of cash i will definitely donate it. hehe.
You don't need to donate a million dollars to be helpful. If each Firhoster in the forum donated $10, how much will that come up to?
In a disaster affected area, I am sure every little help is a lot. How about the Frihost Bondings or Admins organise such a fund.
But thought has to be given that not all people have Credit Cards. So modes of payment have to be arranged for the these people. Such as for me, I have an ICICI Bank, India account and I can make online transfers to some banks. That's the only way. And I have made donation to the ICICI Bank charity funds. I will gladly donate a little if Frihost does arrange for it. And so will many others here I am sure.
i wish to send my condolence to every member of the family's of the beloved people who died in the tsunami.
That this nature force returns so soon is not normal. The security systems in the entire sector are not good enough.
When such quakes are been detected is it better to alarm to soon, then to late. In this matter it happened again from what i understood from the news facts.
Once again is our own planet the most feared enemy.
