Disconnecting

I recently spent a week at a conference on and island in sunny Greece, Naxos.  I had my phone and e-mail access, but it is amazing how fast you feel left out.  Some of it is because I unsubscribed myself from some overactive mailing lists, and some happens because folks have assumed that I would be 100% offline.  

I even started to work on a post, but was sidetracked a bit by talks (and nice sunny weather).   It has been increasingly difficult for me to post with any regularity.  I am as excited to be working here at the LHC as everyone else, but somehow that energy gets spent on things other than blogging. So this is my last post, I’ve decided not to continue any more.

Since I started we went from a very incomplete system (cables missing, etc.) to one that is an integrated part of CMS.  A lot of hard work, some scrapes and sore muscles, some very long days (and nights)…all for a better Regional Calorimeter Trigger.

The recent delay was a discouraging, but these things happen. The LHC a very complicated system, running in a very new way. I hope that we can use this time to polish our system. 

Thanks to everyone for their interest and comments.  Its been fun!

All the best,

Pam

    Thank you for your many interesting posts Pam. I hope the delay doesn’t get you too discouraged. Polishing the system is what this time is for. Good luck in all your future work.

    Pam, it will be sad to see you go. You were one of the first faces of LHC to me: http://www.news.wisc.edu/12105. Thank you for your hard work and for making the world’s fastest and most powerful digital camera! Good luck in the future and I am glad you are a part of the greatest expirement in human history.
