    That is a fiber splice enclosure. There are 3 12 count fibers and a 60 count. It is a point where we splice the fiber and enclose it to "keep it safe" In this case the slate/slate(53) broke in this enclosure and took a HUGE account down all day. You can see the enclosure, toaster tray, and the splicer. The machine lines up the glass, fuses it and let's you see the splice and how good, or not, the splice is...kinda like an x-ray machine...sorta.

    Basically it's your inanets riding the light in this case :)

    Our customer happend to be Virginia Institute of Marine Science - Home

    first of all, wow!
    your job is slightly more complex than mine, by slightly i of course mean you are poaching peaches and i am opening canned ones... you are a wizard and i can make my finger disappear up my nose.... just a few metaphors.

    :eek:
    hmmmm.... does everyone in your kitchen know this?

    Not yet, I'll tell them tonight though, I'm headed in in a couple of hours.

    Last run through, full staff, full kitchen, actually over staffed as we a re opening to the public, we sent out tons of vouchers for free food, I'm expecting a storm.

    I'm getting all tingly talking about it, I'm so excited.

    Thank you. We have some issues to work out, but I'm at the helm so as long as my assistant can learn enough to take lead when I'm not there we should be good.

    The menu and the OS have some kinks to work out, but I'm happy.

    Well...just think of it as transport for data (your internet, phone, and a whole multitude of other services) at different wave lengths( 1330 1550 1625, etc) in a pretty efficient way.

    Hmm. My day started something like this:

    select * from ddb_pat_ base where lastname = 'Smith' and firstname = 'Jane'

    then it was

    select * from ddb_proc_log where patid = 1000136 and patdb = 30 and amount = -44000

    then it was

    select * from audit_ddb_credit_to_charge where chargeid= 141623 and chargedb = 30

    The good news was that someone had only reallocated the credit, not made it disappear.
