  • Lots of meetings with Sam / Cryovac, good news is that the vessel should 'should' be here today, keep fingers crossed.
    • We aquired quotes from kingsbury for cranage in preparation for our own shipping options
    • Speciality Spanish Transport, quote was lowered and we accepted
    • Southern Cranes and Access gave an insane quote, I think this was in response to bad communications between SST and cryovac and themselves which basically involved SST demanding a quote without giving them any information about the Job. So... knowing or believing they had no options, they quoted 1500 ish... which Cryovac (as much as they are not in a position to complain really) identified as crazy.
    • We provided Cryovac with our quote from Kingsbury
    • Cryovac contracted Kingsbury
  • Got my simple diagnoistic tool working on m3daq
    • I made a sym link into /home/dmatter/bin (i think, i cant check, m3daq is offline for the delivery)
    • This means the program can be used from any command line location
    • Invoked by rawAna.exe - if given with no options it will print the usage directions and flags
    • For looking quickly at a root file and rumping the number of events/triggers point rawAna.exe at a raw root file with no arguments
    • -d dumps waveforms to screen ->really fast, much better than using a CINT macro
    • -c dumps CCD images
    • -d -c dumps both to screen
    • It can be used for offline analysis, currently it will do baseline cuts, peak time cuts, find peakheights for the charge channels and output 4 histograms. baseline sigma cut and time cut can be added using appropriate flags (see useage)
  • Wrote small script for exporting fits file using the DMTPC image library for Kulveer to use
  • Lab cleanup, tidy with the team, My task was mostly disconnecting and tidying away all cables and moving the DAQ computer and electronics rack.
  • Shoring props are in place, clean tent has not fallen over... yet
