  5. Could I have that drink with the pineapple in it? That looks very refreshing.

    Why do I feel like we are partying while our dear friend is undergoing surgery? LOL

    How long before we get the status of the patient Dr. Parizad?

  31. Hi... Here is the check list we are on step 4. So that means step 5, 6, and 7 are still left.

    1. At about 9:30 AM PST 12/05/2007 we will start the shut down of Test Center 3
    2. Once Test Center 3 is shut down we will deploy Wednesdays update version 2.1524.0.0
    3. We will start up Test Center 3 internally to verify we have deployed properly
    4. We will shut Test Center 3 down again.
    5. Once Test Center 3 is shut down the 2nd time we will run our merge scripts. This should take about 2 hours.
    6. Once we the merge scripts have completed we will start up Test Center 3 internally again and verify that our lots have moved over intact along with everything else.
    7. Then we will open Test Center 3 to the public.

    Cheers,

    Lee

    Agreed just pass the drinks...
     
  32. Just turned the controls over to Commander Mark. He is going to take us through step 5. Stand by

    Well did you ever drink so hard while you were sitting down that you didn't realize you were drunk until the moment you stand up?

    I just don't want that to happen.
    If it does... who will stay til midnight?
    Honestly.

    I'm looking out for the good of the community.

    Actually who am I kidding? I'm hording the alcohol for myself. So I can drink til I can't stand up straight.
