How to change computers without going off the air.

Just bought a few new computers for the station and was curious if there is any way to install these without going off the air. We are a medium market but the PD insists that we cannot go off the air for any reason.

yes, indeed you can. The new computers must have unique names to them so there will not be any conflicts on your network. Switching them over should take not more than 5 seconds so it could be done live with little interuption. I have performed a live upgrade/switch over many times.
