Greetings to the RAITH Community:

Many of you didn't realize that last month we exceeded 350 Users trained on the SNF Raith system.  Currently there are about 210 qualified users still here at Stanford.

Thank you for your support over the last nine years!

Starting late Friday August 26th and continuing through September 19, 2010 I will be away from SNF performing my annual public service commitment working as a Black Rock Ranger at BurningMan 2011.  During this time starting mid day Saturday, I will be off the cell phone grid and you will be unable to reach me by cell phone for support on the Raith 150 system.    I will respond to all voice mails left on my phone as soon as I am able to at 415-412-4825 after September 7, 2011

All PMMA's have been stocked in sufficient supplies to last through this period.  Please use these expensive engineering materials frugally and if we run out please see Mahnaz Mansourpour or David Cala to obtain the next bottle of materials.

Please enlist the aid of your local Raith Champions for assistance on the tool should you run into any problems whatsoever.

Below and attached I have updated the Raith FAQ No. 6,


The most experienced RAITH CHAMPIONS to call during this period are Kelly Rivoire, KC Balram, Arka Majumdar, Jessie Lu, and Gary Shambat.

Please play nicely together and work to maximize throughput on the system while I am away.

Thank you for your support!

James Conway
