	I found rings of sticky resist on both hotplates on svgcoat
tonight. The track is unusable.

	I DID NOT find [even one of] the following:

a) a sign posted on the machine to warn members
b) a problem notice on coral
c) an email to the members

	Baking resist on a hotplate happens to everybody once. There is
little shame in that. The shame is in leaving a piece of equipment in a
damaged condition for the next user.

	Clean it up! If you can't clean it up, tell somebody. If you can't
do that, stay out of the lab.

PS - the processing staff can advise you on how to coat both sides of a
wafer with resist.
