Grace, Xinran, and Innotec community ...

I've spoken with Jim Haydon.  The chiller has been repaired and I've 
been authorized to clear the shutdown. There is a chance that either the 
gun or chamber cooling water flow switches will need to be adjusted .... 
apparently these switches are rather sensitive and flow that is either 
too low or too high will cause them to report a failure.  At this point, 
I don't know enough about those switches to know how to adjust them.  
However I believe that Jim may stop by early this afternoon to look at them.

To my knowledge, Jeannie's wafers (described below) are still in the 
system and still need to have an evaporation of 1000 A of aluminum on them.

If someone is nearby and can test whether they can do this evaporation 
or whether the water interlock still seems to show, I'm sure that we'd 
all be appreciative.  If you can get the interlock to fire up, please 
send out email to this mailing list.  If you still see an interlock 
error, please tell us which one.   Either Jim or I will try to resolve that.

Here is Jeannie's request for an evaporation ...

Thanks for your support,
