Good day today!

I got here at 10am. Did a bunch of warehouse space-making. Bill I. helped
from noon to 5pm. More space-making! Steve A. came over to install more
ceiling lights right after Bill left. Very handy! We've needed more lights
in the warehouse for a long time. Steve left 10 minutes ago. Jeff B. is
coming by soon to clear more things.

Ian is coming soon too. He and I are both staying overnight for the early
delivery tomorrow. Bill I. will come back for that too, and Dan from the
shipwreck group will operate the forklift. We have two pallet jacks ready
(VCF's and one of IA's) plus full propane tanks if the forklift runs out.

It's been a super day so far :) and tomorrow we get our .... < drum roll
please > ... VAX 9440.

And: we got a second 9440 delivered to Bob Roswell, plus a 9200-series
delivered to Dave McGuire!

Nobody ever say VCF doesn't do anything for its friends. :)
