I’m currently in the CMS control room doing Trigger shift. The ‘Trigger’ is what selects interesting events to record. Unfortunately, there is nothing interesting being recorded at the moment because, as you can see on the LHC status page, currently access is required to work on the “Quench Protection System” in a specific sector.
So, I’ll keep watching the trigger recording cosmic ray muons, making sure things stay looking ok.
In the meantime I can keep working on a paper we’d like to have a draft of by Monday.
