So my boss' boss's brother works in the World Trade Center. He was evacuated after the hit and before the collapse. I'm glad he was so lucky.

I am glad of my online accesses, I have mostly talked with most of the folks I was worried about and everyone seems to be okay.

Food Network is based in New York. They're off the air today. I hope they made it through okay. We'll see, I guess.

I'm still... processing all this. Work's said explicitly that anyone that wants to go home to be with their family may. They've made sure that everyone with the company is okay. All our travelling folks are okay. The conference all our marketing folks were scrambling to get ready for and leave for this week has now been postponed indefinitely. Everyone is returning all their plane tickets. Xilinx really is trying their best to take care of their people, and I'm impressed.
