It's 6:13 AM now, and I'm about to leave to go into manhatan now to go to a building that one of our customers is building on lexington ave. I have to do a site survey to determin the best way to kit the premise equipment for the cabling guys to do the installations. Fucked up we already shipped them like 2 million feet of Cat5 4x4, which is 4 cat-5 cables in one common semi-armored outer insulation; and like 750,000 feet of fiber-optic riser.

The strange thing is, we would normally do a site survey early on in the construction. Theres no accounting for preparedness.

Cabling is not my end of the business, so I was even suprised at all the cabling that goes into such a large bldg. I'm back now BTW. They have all the walls up and a lot of the 4x4 is routed. I was checking all the wiring closets as they call them, they're actually full size telecom rooms. 2 per floor (on all but 5 floors) on a 50 floor structure. We are supplying them with all the networking and telecom racks, patch-panels, jacks wall plates, copper/fiber-optic cable, including patchcords. By far the largest venture i've personally been involved in. over 100,000 patch cords total copper and fiber.
I wish we could have provided all their cisco routers and switches, but they have all their own CCIE's so they're a cisco Gold partner, which means that they can buy direct from cisco at a huge discount. Each of the 10 networking racks in each telecom room has a cisco catalyst 6500 series switches, with all their card slots packed. Fuck, with that config, it's like a $35,000 switch. assuming they all have the same config that's like what? almost $35 million, just in ethernet switching alone. Holy Crap! wish one of those would fall off a truck.

**drools**
cisco catalysy 6500 switch...nice, last time i got to play with one of those was when i went to help my bro-in-law at the car dealership where he is a sys admin. fun crap, they have so many in their server/internet room that they had to buy a separate AC unit to keep the room at a average temp of 80 degrees F. and yeah if i had to run 2 million feet of CAT5 i would shoot myself, i just wired my house cuz my wireless was shitty and i ran about 1000 feet of the crap and it took all damn day, its nice, my bro-in-law hooked me up with some cisco routers.

Well let's see. People have been responding with perfectly normal conversation, so I'd have to say they do give a shit.
And why do you continually make an ass out of yourself. You think you're a bad ass starting with people outside of Bait & Tackle, when you know they won't retalliate?
Why don't you step into B&T and I'll tear you a new asshole to match you mouth! :mfinger: Oh ya, then you can mow my lawn.

cuando encara!
