76
One of the cryos has been cabled up so we have one board readout electronics all cabled up. No problems yet.  Running, initialises and reads out compressed data  Pedestal data taken (as cryos not cold) 1 run taken with bayonet out and one in (shows load above pedestal) visible in ADC distribution.  Boards show no major problems with chips etc.  Rest of boards will now be checked.  All checks that can be done while warm will be done.  VLSB and cables all cycled through.
77
78
Vacuum pumps brand new but all broken.  Will be serviced by Craig in due course.

came from concerns that channels were swapped after cosmics. We think that it is not a problem.
