Lab now open again

Hi all --

The lab is now open again for business.  Please make sure to check the 
status on Coral and be extra careful on your regular system checkout 
before starting -- not all tools are functional and with a hundred tools 
in the lab, it is possible something was missed.  Also, be aware that 
steam generation has not yet come back on-line, so the lab may feel 
unusually cold.

As you may have heard, a major power outage took out the lab (and much 
of Stanford and Menlo Park) for several hours.  Special thanks to the 
efforts of Jose and Leonard of the FacOps crew, who got all the 
facilities running in short order, and our maintenance & process crew 
(Gary, Mario, Elmer, Jim, Ted, Ray, Maurice, James) who brought most of 
the equipment up.

Your SNF staff
