Good Progress was made over the last two days and nights of work, and we 
hope to return to operational status tomorrow.
This evening we are performing several test and hope to be able to 
qualify the system tomorrow after examining writes I am doing this evening.

Gigi and Arvind have the system overnight for testing.
I will resume my test and do another qualification write after we 
complete adjustments to the calibrations of the E/O card and switch out 
the chiller unit with the repaired Thermo - Neslab chiller tomorrow 
My plan is to resume the CORAL reservations schedule late Friday afternoon.

Many Thanks to Mirwais Aktary and Sergey Reiderman for their great 
efforts to get us back into a quality state.  Both will be here tomorrow 
to complete final adjustments on the system.

Thank you for your support!
