Well, May was a tough month here in the department. A few weeks ago some
electricians doing some remodeling work in the building turned off a rather
important breaker panel without our knowledge, cutting power to the big
chillers in our main machine room, as well as the temp alarms. It only
took about two hours to for a many gigabyte disk array to succumb to the
heat, among other major boxes. I won't go into all the details, but suffice
it to say that I, and the rest of the systems staff, were *extremely* busy
for several weeks getting a new facility built up, basically from scratch.
Just the sort of thing you want to happen in the middle of classes.
Anyway, I am starting to get caught up on the huge backlog of personal and
automotive-related email and various tasks. That, and get ready for the
big trip to the VTR convention in, what, six weeks or so? If I do manage
to get the big van ready for the journey, I'll be able to bring along a
fair number of parts. If there's some part I can help you with, let me
know. To get some idea of what I have on hand, check out the pages

Hmm, I think I may actually have a few outstanding parts orders from months
ago in my queue, yikes! I better check. Anyway, chances are that if you
are attending VTR or live somewhere along the route between Salt Lake and
Hudson, Wisconsin, you can get free delivery on FCG parts!
