Not sure how everyone else felt about it, but, this format for Friday Night Ops seemed to work pretty well tonight.  Los Angeles and San Francisco were busier than the reat, but, traffic was pretty well spread out throughout the west otherwise.  And I don't think either of those two were so buried as to be overwhelmed.  I also didn't feel like ATC was spread so thin to be "diluted" -- staffing was fairly solid, and I felt I got pretty good service throughout the West Coast.  Did it seem like a success to everyone else?
Cheers,

It looked great from the command center side, traffic went through the airspaces smoothly and overall a great event.

I think it went pretty well from our perspective. We were a bit limited on our staffing, but with the spread out traffic it was fine. SFO got busy, but "fun busy" as opposed to "I want to ragequit busy", so I count that as a success.

I would probably consider that a raging success, then... :)
