Here's the not-so-skinny on the project. Based on the asset system and the book weights for the pieces and parts, we installed 13,543 pounds of new equipment. Of that 5,783 pounds was gigabit switches (averaging 115 lbs. apiece) and 6,615 pounds of UPS units (at 135 lbs. each), with another half-ton of other small switches. By my estimates, we took out some 5,000 lbs. of old gear.
Perhaps instead of taking everyone on the team out for a victory lunch I should get them gift certificates for a massage!
