Subject: New date for drytek1 Transition: Monday, Sept. 26

Dear drytek1 users:

Through a coincidence of unrelated events, it seems that the conversion 
over to drytek2 will happen even sooner.  As you know, the pump blower 
for drytek1 died two days ago.  And the new Oxford unexpectedly arrived; 
deadline for placement in its new location in the lab is Thursday.   As 
it didn't make sense to replace a blower only to shut the machine down a 
couple of days later, the conversion has been moved up to Monday, Sept. 26.

We are still working on documentation and logistics:  most will be in 
place by Monday's end.  If you are already qualified on drytek2, you are 
just about ready to go.  If you are not get qualified on drytek2, please 
get in touch with Nancy who will be training and coordinating 
train-a-thons with currently qualified users.

Apologies for the short notice:  please do let us know if you have 
specific concerns regarding the transfer of your process.

Team Etch
