To avoid data hiccups, the local branch of the conglomeration of phone goons agreed to take it on over the two day period of swapover, at which point we'd return it wrapped in ribbons. This is a rather large job, a good 20 people or more a day. We don't currently have that kind of phone goon power to spare very much. We'd been having 5 to 6 hour shifts last I was in.

Saw some familiar faces I'd thought I wouldn't see again. There's the Hyper Phone Goon who often enough sits next to the Figment on $OTHER_SIDE_JOB, and a tiny, cheerful, and perpetually late woman from $ISSUE_SIDE_JOB. Old familiar faces. Maybe back to stay.
