    • Almost done with moving everything from -001 to -003. RT work is delayed a bit, should be done next week. -002 & -004 are just sitting there. Once -003 cutover it done, then start work on -002 and -004. Pretty much everything has been moved from -001 to -003, but for RT. Matt Harlow has been a big help in this.
