This might be fun to do if they are injecting:
Open a browser, with Vistar pages in different tabs. Choose the following vistar pages in order:
CPS, PSB, SPS Page 1, LHC Page 1, LHC Beam Dump
Now go to the first tab, look for a "LHC Probe" line, and if you see it is sent, switch to PSB, check if you see it sent not to a dump and having enough protons, switch to the SPS, watch the blue squiggle being ramped, switch to the LHC if you see one of the red/blue lines jump up. And depending on what they do (I was watching a dump test), switch to the dump page to see if you see the dump.
This way, you can really follow the protons almost all the way through the CERN pipes.
Keeps me busy for hours, but your mileage may vary
The place to discuss the LHC. Commissioning, operation, issues, events ....
