New Temp Ctl Unit will be installed tomorrow, planning to let it stabilize temps over the weekend. If it all goes smoothly, we'll run system cals (focus/overlay etc.) on Monday.
New computer and new Mains Power supply have been installed, along with one rack CPU board that failed - these are all operating nominally so far. Nanofiles sync & JobCreator will be reinstituted later next week/following week. All user jobs have be copied over. // John d 21:08, 23 June 2022 (PDT)
Face-Masks Optional as of June 13

We will still provide masks at the metal table in front of the cleanroom entry. See the UCSB announcement at this link.
