CMS in Cyprus

Hah!

If I’m quick I’ll get this in just after Peter’s blog. While ATLAS went to Berne, CMS went to Limmasol (Lemesos) Cyprus for the collaboration meeting. Now, it is rather a critical time, so the wisdom of going fairly far away is dubious, but getting the upper management and riffraff out of the hair of those really doing the work for a while is maybe not such a terrible idea. I’m told it was quiet and people could get work done at CERN. Anyway, I had a good time-Limmasol is a resort town, so it wasn’t particularly serene (think Miami Beach for Brits and rich Russians) but I did get into the countryside a little which was quite nice. Also, my buddy Chris proposed an alternative excursion to the one planned for the whole collaboration, which was very fun, since I only get to do this particular activity once every blue moon. He’s on the right, I’m on the left

In other news, we have tracks in our tracker! Triggered by Cosmics via the muon chambers, with more than 95% of it turned on! So far performance looks really excellent, I’ll provide more details soon
