We made the move this past Monday into our new home on the 4th floor of the LIB. Arguably we could have stayed out for a few more days, if not weeks, while we waited for the configuration and testing of our network services, arrival of still missing furniture, and perhaps more importantly the functioning of the building HVAC systems. But instead we're there and helping point out to the various trades people what we had intended for the space, where things are supposed to go, and discovering what we got right and what we didn't.
