Pulling Fiber Cables with Telco today

JP tebowing over his fiber figure 8s. Great day outside today, so we pulled some fiber cable today. This particular strand is 7000 feet that snakes through McMurdo so we can connect it to our building, the JSOC. We have to be careful not to kink the cable because its glass fiber and a shatttered glass cable isn't going to do us any good. One of the best things about working in IT down here is you get a lot of exposure to everybody else's job, and not just other people in IT. A couple weeks ago I chopped onions and mushrooms for a few hours. Thankfully I still have all my fingers.
