Despite best efforts from RAITH USA and myself  the RAITH 150 will be 
off-line and in shut down mode through Tuesday afternoon. 

We have identified a bad GPIB board that is interfering with proper 
communications to the Precision stage controller and it is causing 
errors and loss of functionality to the stage motor control and virtual 
motor control modules in the software.

I spent this morning working through these interfaces and testing the 
IEE-488 buses and communications and as of yet have not been able to 
figure a way to establish a work around to this sub-system.  More work 
on this latter this afternoon.

Raith is shipping me the boards ASAP...

Thank you for your support!
