Dear Labmembers --

The lab is now open again after this morning's power outage.  The cause 
appears to have been a short caused during building  repair and 
maintenance of a compressor.  The Buildings & Ground Maintenance group 
immediately sent out electricians to assess and repair the problem.

Greenlighted tools should be OK to use.  Tools that are in shutdown or 
enabled by staff are in the process of being checked out.  Please check 
with the responsible staff member about the status of any tool if there 
are any uncertainties.  And please do report any problems you observe, 
as power glitches can result in less-than-obvious issues.

Lastly, if you have equipment enabled during this time, contact staff 
about adjusting your enable times.  If you have wafers in process and 
can't yet retrieve them, contact any staff with instructions on what to 
do with them.

Your SNF Staff
