Which, in defense of the Wing Museum Curators, sometimes becomes enough of a PITA that it exceeds
a reasonable attention span.

Getting obsolete laptops and similar removed from the books can take months, despite the fact that the equipment is
long since disposed of and documented.

And in the meantime, if you have an SUI or CI, and a less then com...knowledgeable inspector, you might wind up with a finding
regarding missing equipment.  PITA sandwich.

I talk often about how I like just working in the trenches in order to not have to worry about stuff like that.  But I really do appreciate those above who are dedicated to the cause enough, to deal with all these things. Everyone from the top to the bottom has their jobs to do, and we all depend on each other. Thanks!

National is getting much faster at completing retirements - the last few took them one-two days.

That's why you keep the location field up to date. "Turned in to **** for disposal" with "Waiting for National to complete retirement process" in the comments field. CYA management.

To the first point, if this is a recent development, it's a welcome, my last round was earlier this year,
as to the second point, 100% right, makes perfect sense, and yet...
