Multi Faith Church

Our GPS card on the DAQ machine had been on the freewheel mode for a month. Today Eric Church swapped the spare card with a fix to the production machine.
Eric: thank jehova
Eric: well, we havent cut over to the run config that's actually using the GPS yet, but okay
Eric: Ra, Yahweh, ....
Me: are you religious today?
Eric: whatever it takes. add yer Eastern gods there. Sorry if I was ethnocentric
Me: not sure if your God would be offended since it’s his territory ;)
Eric: I am equally invested in all of ‘em
Me: 南無阿彌陀佛
Kazu: did someone die?
When I told Gianluca the story tonight, he commented:
You have a multi faith church.

DAQ Audible Alarms for April 1st

I prepared special DAQ audible alarms for today --

1. when a run crashes without knowing what next run is:
Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert DAQ

2. when there are three runs crashing in a row within 10 minutes:
Yeah, let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an error, let it be

...and surprised the day shifters, Leon and Mary, and the evening shifter, Ben Carls.

Thanks Michael Mooney, who will be the "executive committee member of 24-7-on-call Data Taking Trouble Shooting Task Force" of MooneyBooNE until his grave with our fully support, for suggestions, Matt Bass for skyping me so that I could see people's reaction, and Kazuhiro Terao for a great proposal and a lot of fun!
