As my esteemed colleague has commented on some Ike IT frustrations, I feel compelled to comment on some Ike IT stars. My firm's IT group road out the storm and kept our systems up and running. As the 'main' office for our firm, all of our critical systems reside here in Houston. Of course we have an off-site backup, as all firms should. Even though our building sustained some damage, our systems never went down. IT staff was on-site and at our backup location monitoring things and making sure we stayed live. The result, I never stopped getting emails (and working) and we had critical infrastructure available for lawyers and staff that needed it. Kudos to our IT group!
