Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

FEMA talks up its IT changes

The office of the CIO for the Federal Emergency Management Agency has made several changes in the past year to better communicate with state and local officials, support citizens who need assistance, and keep better track of assets such as food and water. Network World Senior Editor Denise Pappalardo recently spoke with FEMA CIO Barry West and Deputy CIO Jeanne Etzell about some of these changes. (West is about to make a career change as he heads over to the Department of Commerce to become its CIO.)

What are some of the changes in your department that make FEMA better equipped to aid in future disasters?

West: There's a lot that has happened since last hurricane season. What we've done is gone back and look at our core systems that we used and significantly enhanced those systems. One example is NEMIS, the National Emergency Management Information System. This system processes all disaster victim claims for issuance of checks for aid. We've gone back and made this system more robust using the latest and greatest from Oracle. And we've moved applications that were running on Microsoft to Linux. The system does a lot of replication. We have been able to take advantage of some of the Web services features that don't require as much transfer of data.

How will the upgrade better support disaster victims?

West: NEMIS was originally designed to support 20,000 to 25,000 applications daily. During [Hurricane] Katrina the system was stretched to support nearly 110,000 applications daily. Going into this hurricane season we're trying to make it more robust.
