Re: Too many spam-bots

Would putting "/Forum/viewforum.php?f=3" in your robots.txt file work?
(if Google, etc. stop crawlining that forum, I assume it becomes worthless for SEO purposes?)

Re: Are all interfaces to the ring optically coupled?

relative low cost ...

If i am reading the figures at the bottom of todays cyro report correctly. The cost of upgrading the 65 PLCs to get reducndancy is 1.5 Million swiss franks + 2 man-years of labour for cabling and code re-write.

Re: What to ask the LHC team about its operations or displays

Are the LHCb team going to reset their fill luminosity back to zero?
It is causing problems with the integated luminosity graph

Re: Current Events Discussion

Looks like they are now about to try 152 bunches,
filling scheme 150ns_152b_140_16_140_8bpi19injB

so I assume 19 injections x 8 bunches

Re: Current Events Discussion

2 for ramp, 10 for cycle/rampl down (e.g. no beam)

I would rather herd cats ...
