14
* Not yet able to test against multiple tracks per trigger with MC - Durga - Melissa to remind Durga
15
* Real data unpacking broken - 
16
* Ensure central fibre is correctly defined in geometry and with Tracker group and correct if necessary - C Heidt - Talked with Victoria and he now understands the problem.  As central fibre and doubling it gives the wrong number of channels in the plane although it should not effect this.  
17
* Prepare a tag out lock out procedure to stop people turning things off that we don't want them to (He etc. - Add the above to the controls and monitoring alarms so that if the above happens we know - Pierrick
18
* Add to John Govans' rota for daily walk round to test our setup. - Pierrick 
19
* write emergency shutdown procedure - MU almost complete to do today
20
* Check if the control room simple fix will work for the Tracker head - E.O
21
* Organise a break out meeting at cm41. Plan for the next M.D.C - MU - DONE

h3. 0. Mock data challenges
26
27
As a result of the last MDC Craig has fixed the local grounding:  Now each of the crates is connected to the copper rack ground and the cryos and racks are grounded to the floor.  
28
29
Before cryo3 main cryo can is 50mOhm to frame and extra 10mOhms to the floor and the strap makes about 10mOhms difference.  Cryo1 seems to have its strap disconnected, and to ground is 200mOhms.
30
Now Vener chassis to consumer unit ~20mOhms. But grounding done properly.

61
* 8th March ISIS run.  We will not run but will aim to have our stuff in controls and monitoring 
62
Goals:
63
* To synchronise with the ISIS RF which was done at the single station test in two days (but we can try to complete in 1) and we will need a day with LEDs in advance. One station in one tracker at least necessary for this but one in each trackers is best.
64
* And to ensure that everything not completed as part of the mock data challenge is completed.
65
66
Alignment will not be able to be done before this and therefore it is no a goal for this run.

107
108
We need to produce documentation for in the control room, for Steve B.  We cannot necessarily get that far with operations and startup as we are not yet working with the CandM as we will but we can write something and finalise safety details.
