[sebhc] Personal Katrina update

Okay, so now I'm stirred...

Since my relocation (Feb), most of my stuff has been in climate-controlled 
storage.  Well, I found out just a couple of days ago that what I thought 
was a solid wall above my unit was glass painted with opaque paint.  Glass 
that Katrina sucked right off the building.  So my stuff experienced the 
hurricane, an additional week of weather, and has been sitting there soggy 
and exposed throughout.

I'm back in town now, scrambling to unpack boxes and try to dry out and 
rescue the contents (books in particular).  Another casualty was my H-47.  
My main H-8 was luckily one of the few things I had in my room.

If anyone knows effective methods for removing mold and mildew, particularly 
from books, mail them to me directly (since its off-topic).  Likewise if you 
know how to release pages that are glued together (I'm guessing from 
cardboard adhesives that wicked up into them) without harming the print.

P.S. No insurance.  I thought the entire building was brick; and if it had 
been, everthing would have survived intact.
