Hi All,

Today’s cabinet move was truly a whopping success, with all the help from NYC*BUG volunteers!
(Even the box running this list was moved…)

I’m grateful to even the folks who couldn’t join us, but joining me today was:

 Robert Menes
 Brian Reynolds
 James Keenan
 Patrick McEvoy
 George Rosamond
 NYI NOC Staff on 21st Floor

Tactical admin support from remote locales,

 Mark Saad
 Okan Demirmen

As I stood at the end of the day surveying the details, it dawned on me, WE FINISHED IN ONE DAY!  (After 12 years of Open Source projects in/out of the cabinet, this is nothing to sneeze at...)

Datacenter work has lots of standing around, lots of menial tasks, and particularly with all our hodgepodge of donated gear, lots of “gee, how do we mount this” sort of problem solving- and everyone who came today was creative, attentive, and really just pushed hard to get it all done as a *team*.

Working with everyone today made me really proud to be one of the hackers at NYC*BUG.

Also, we can’t thank NYI enough for their continued support, and use of their stellar facilities.
