OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW...

UTM GETS A NEW PBX

(Click on pictures to enlarge, use you "back" button to return)


Hugh Gingras, retired 20 year veteran of Telephone Services, comes back to work to see the new baby shortly after its arrival at the Warehouse.  OK, actually Hugh has been working with me showing me where he has all the wires hid ever since I took over his job.

Big boxes of stuff.  Big expensive boxes of stuff.  The shipper wrote on them "This order $400,000!".  Too bad it was on the second box Max took off the truck.  The first one almost fell off the forklift as he was backing out and it didn't phase him.  Then he saw the price tag and almost had a heart attack.  The rest came out reeeeeeeel slooooooow...

Mass confusion reigns in the switchroom.  Out go the wall dividers around Hugh's desk, and other assorted nik-naks of his old office.  This is where the new PBX will go.

Is this to code?  SJT extension cable feeding the fiber rack.

SeTel has the new backboard installed and things are cleaned off of the floor and thrown on the workbench (right) and LAN furniture (left).

Since I have the CDL, I get to drive the UT freight truck.  Here I am doing all the pushing while David from SeTel watches his feet.

No, Tom isn't rocking an outhouse.  He's getting packing material off the bottom of the MG stack.

Bring 'er in guys...  Plenty of room...
