Re: DC fiber cut: field report

As we left it struck me that this cut was not if, but when. And more cuts

like it. There was no protection for the cable, no markers of the cable 
location. 

One of the interesting things about the startup of Wiltel was pulling fiber
through decommisioned gas pipelines; not only do you get a 1/4" steel
backhoe fade margin, but you get scary yellow signs that say "DANGER: HIGH
PRESSURE NATURAL GAS LINE"; cut a piece of innerduct and your boss yells at
you. Bust a gas pipeline and they can bury what's left of the offender in a
thimble - if they can find it.
