connected SLO to LAN

I finally started working on the LAN expansion in the late afternoon. The plan was to connect the new SLO observatory building to the site network.

It took me a while to find the existing ethernet drop inside the Geoff Brown Observatory but I finally found the terminus where I was expecting it in the warm room. Still marked "BAO." I actually found it plugged into port 6 on the old switch.

Bought a silly-expensive F-F junction from The Source so to easily extend the wiring inside the SLO.

I built a patch from behind the door to desk area. Put male end on line from the GBO.

Denis let me use his tester that he had coincidentally brought to test his cabling inside his pod. That made it easy.
