Hi Bruce,

Yes, I think it would be fine to do the migration this Friday early
morning(7:00AM to 9:00AM ?) if it won't take a long time when thing goes
well. I have asked several OSL people personally and I could not hear
any big objections about the new schedule.

So, the new migration date and time would be
1) date : Mar 9, Friday
2) time : 7:00AM to 9:00AM ET

If this migration does not work well, as you mentioned, we can roll back
to the original current milliways and then we still can do the migration
again with a plenty of time (8:00AM to 5:00PM ET) on Mar 19, Mon.

How does it sound?
Please let me know if you have any problems or concerns about the new
schedule.
I am sorry for the quick and changing schedules.

Regards,

- DongInn
