Ah Priorities

My ability to focus this week is essentially non-existent. For starters we just ended a three-week long detector integration run. And second it is the start of the Euro Cup. So basically there is no hope for me.

In one corner, we have Work. In the other corner, Soccer.
Work. Soccer. Work. Soccer.
Soccer. Work. Soccer. Work.
Soccer. Soccer. Work. Soccer.
Soccer. Soccer. Soccer. Soccer.
Work? What work?
Soccer. Soccer. Soccer. Soccer.

In one corner, we just finished the 7th Milestone week (which was actually three weeks). Just like the 5th and 6th milestone weeks, the aim is to combine all the sub-detectors and try to run as if there was beam. We try to push the system as much as we can, try to have fixed all the bugs from the previous integration weeks and try to debug the new problems that have occurred. It is an important milestone.

In the other corner, Spain destroyed Russia in their opening match! Very important.

For you non-soccer fans, in only two weeks the rest of us will all be back to normal again. And I might be able to once again focus.
