   monday 22090928 looks okay to me at this point. 
probably after 6 PM, yes? 
   i think it'll be good to take a trip to the 
servepath colo in advance of The Move, so's to 
scout it out and ensure that we actually can get 
in (security clearance, etc.). 
   The Move will include bring down the host, 
install the IPMI cable, take the thing to 
servepath, put the machine in the rack, change 
the IP address to use those that servepath 
provides rather than those SFCCP provides. 

   please let's verify the date asap so i can 
start getting the servepath access act together 
(normally only three persons max are permitted 
access; if more will participate, i'll need to 
get permission). 

   thank you, michael.
