Tulsa Ciena and DC removal

The installs have resumed a bit this week with Tom and Hans slotting the chassis today. So far, so good, as I've not heard of any issues from the field. With luck, they'll be finished by day's end and ready to come back.

We're currently targeting next Friday (4/27) for the Washington DC removal. We did receive the final LOA/CFA we needed from Qwest yesterday in Atlanta, but there were too many unknowns in terms of scheduling and heroics needed to get crates shipped around that we decided to not to move the Atlanta backbone circuit this week. With the Members Meeting next week, we decided that the earliest we could schedule it would be next Thursday. Hopefully the move will go well and we'll be able to yank the DC chassis the next morning. That will put us on track to install Kansas City the following week.
