Countdown to lab cleanup!

Greetings labmembers --

Four week warning.  Remember, the annual lab shutdown starts in Wednesday, Dec. 
16, at 7 am and is accompanied by the Annual Lab Cleanup.

Starting then, any personal items in the cleanroom not inside a storage 
bin will be removed from the lab.  So save yourself the New Year ritual 
of sifting through dozens of boxes of stuff to find your wafers or 
notebook -- start collecting your personal items now!

Speaking of items in the lab, some of the WIP racks are piled up higher 
than is considered safe.  Please remove any items that are not being 
actively processed -- or staff will begin removing them, starting with 
unlabeled or undated/aged items.  We won't wait for the shutdown to 
start cleaning up the WIP racks.  Remember, WIP stands for "Work in 
Progress" not "Work in Permanence".

Finally, make sure to label storage containers kept in the CAD room 
(151).  Storage bins must be transparent and labeled with an active 
Coral ID and current date.  Unlabeled, undated, boxes and boxes older than one 
year WILL BE removed and dispositioned.

Thanks for your attention --

Your SNF Staff
