Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

My point exactly.

I don't see Ivan returning. :crazy:

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Hi CharmQuark;

Maybe he discovered the error of his ways. :mrgreen:

So now he is ashamed to post back. :scared-yipes:

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Hi CharmQuark;

Maybe the guys in the white jackets caught him and he is not allowed access to the internet in his new padded cell. :lol:

Thanks for posting those lectures. I found out more from them then just about anywhere else.

Maybe he left on that comet he was always talking about without even saying goodbye. :pray:

Yes, DCWitworth, I thought the same thing. I seem to remember hearing someone say that the strings are so small that is beyond human capability to make anything that prove superstring theory.

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Hi Stephen;

I have my doubts about that. I think you give Ivan way more credit then he deserves. IMHO he is nothing but a fear monger looking for someone to frighten.

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Going back to my earlier post about RICH detectors, I was checking out the status of LHCb some more and I discovered that during those runs with the strange tracks, they were locked. In addition to the RICH detectors, there were a number of other detectors locked out. I failed to make a note as to e...

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

RATS! I like my idea of brownies better!

Seriously thanks for the explanation.

I sort guessed as much but found the use of the term 'recipe' for that a bit odd. Maybe it is one of those translation funnies that happen.

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Hi

A quotation from LHCb log; "HCAL is back with new timing recipe."

Anyone have any ideas what this means?

Are they about to make brownies or something with a new recipe? :rolleyes:

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Hi. Has anyone else noticed that RICH1 and RICH2 are not reporting any hits as they were earlier?

I wonder if the lack of information these detectors could be partial to blame for strange results.
