    It's a rack of 5 recips, anyway.

    Just a pain sitting here on pins and needles waiting for the damn phone to ring.
    Sparky's weren't the last one's out of the bar.....but.....I'll let you fill in the blank.......
    The one I always liked was 'I just f--ing put power to it....anything else is not my problem'....then you find out they couldn't read the nameplate and undersized the conductor....and aren't on 24 hour service...

    Believe me, Doug, I have no love for sparky.

    Called him at 2ish yesterday. Hey, this breaker you all put in won't hold for more than 5 minutes and it's running about 125 degrees surface temp in a 55 degree room with all the covers off the panel and a fan running on it. I'm keeping the amperage under 70% of rating and it still trips.

    Sparky's answer. I can be there by 7 or 7:30.

    Thanks, scooter. That will be a BIG help.

    He has no concept of the magnitude of what we are dealing with.

    Hospitals need power 100% of the time.

    Server rooms same thing.

    Grocery stores and cold storage facilities are pretty close to next on that list.

    I don't think that they get it.

    Funny how a short conversation with the store owner got a LOT faster results. I'll be there at 7 turned into see you in 10 minutes.

    LOL, does his name start with an R by chance?

    HHmmmm never thought of it that way! Seems funny how I busted my buttocks the week before on call and had 66 hrs. Then got sick this week.... and when the other tech had the on call last weekend.... as cold as it was... he had one call Friday night and none saturday or sunday. I started on call tonight.... suppose to be warmer (around 50 or so but they have been off by 5-7 degrees.) and wathc... I bet I will miss all my football games. HHmmmm Nope.. I wont let it happen. The Colts game is on at 8 and I am not required to go out after 8. I will wait till midnight if I have to go!!!! (yah right).
