              Shift Summary for eve shift, 21/Jan/00

On Shift:Mark Timko, Julie and lots of KAMI (and non-KAMI) folk

Hours of beam available at all intensities:0
Hours of beam available at nominal intensity:0
Hours of KAMI data (special runs not included):0
Hours of special runs (laser scans, muon runs...):0.1hr

Accounting of lost time: F1 quench ends 800 GeV Fixed Target Run.

Runs ended this shift:
Run 15659 - KAMI_PULSER

Tapes brought to FCC this shift:
  (including tapes for online split)


Accesses during shift:
RK,JW plug in pulser for UCAL timing scan.
Accesses after interlocks are dropped to turn off detector electronics.
Overview of shift:
800 GeV running ends with a phone call from MCR saying that it's over
because of an F1 quench that they won't recover from until late tonight.
Last spill occurred at ~1pm during the day shift.
