Dear Labmembers -

The lab will be shutdown from Thursday, December 16, 2010, at 7 am and 
reopen for business on Tuesday, January 4, at 7 am.  Please plan your 
experiments accordingly.

Please also consider this a warning:  lab cleanup will begin 6 weeks 
from today (Dec. 14).  All personal items NOT stored in lab bins will be 
removed from the lab starting that day.  This includes wafer boxes, 
tweezer boxes, tool boxes, etc.  In the CAD room (Allen 151), all 
storage bins not labeled or with dates older than one year will be 
removed.  Storage bins must be transparent plastic (no cardboard boxes 
allowed.)  All items that are removed  from the CAD room will be 
disposed of.

For building occupants:
- The University is shutdown campus-wide from Monday, Dec. 20 - Monday, 
Jan. 3.  There will be no regular staff during this time and some 
building utilities may be unavailable.
- There will be live testing of the toxic gas detection system, so 
building alarms will go off during testing on Thursday-Friday, December 
- Toxic gases will be shut off on Dec. 16 and turned back on Monday, Jan. 3.
- The scrubber exhaust system will be cleaned on Saturday, December 18.  
Because of the strong odors anticipated, the building will be closed.
- All power will be shutoff to both Allen and Allen X buildings on 
Tuesday, December 21, for preventive maintenance of the substation.  
Make sure your equipment and electronics are safe against power down and 
power up.
