This is probably an idea that I am sure have floated around in the past, but
I do think that eventually we should set up a system that encourage users to
very simply put in the materials they are depositing and the respective
thicknesses. Google Calendar would be an easy thing to setup. This will
facilitate communication amongst users, coordination and of course much less
redundancy in deposition. The innotec schedule can be much more free as a
result. E.g. when I do Ti/pt/Au, another user needing simply a conductive
metal on their sample can just go in with me instead of scheduling their own
time and depositing Ti/Au. These examples and variations of it abound. 

Redundancy you see. It happens a lot; I know it; you know it. So we need to
adopt Nike's motto: Just Do it, which they paid me $10 million dollars to
use because I originated that phrase, you ladies hear?





"What makes the desert beautiful," said the little prince, "is that
somewhere it hides a well."

Dear Innotec Community,

The Gold Starter Source is the most used metal at Innotec and the most
costly metal due to the amount of usage. I continuously add Au pellets to
jar, but the quantity of pellets doesn't add up to how many pellets are
added and the size and weight doesn't seem to change. So we will now weigh 
the Au starter source before and after each use and log it in the logbook.
Please view my log sheet that I logged today Feb. 1st after depositing Gold.
I weighed the Au starter source when I finished (80.6 grams) with the Ohaus
compact scale that is now sitting on the table at Innotec. 

The Au starter source should not go below 50 grams in weight. If it is below
50 grams do not use! ! ! 
You may ask anyone from staff to hand you Au pellets on request if needed.

Thanks for your cooperation,
