This entire night was lost to weather - lots of thunderstorms all over southern Arizona.
We had an incident where the SX M3 swingarm sheared off the deployed low-velocity ramp and launched it onto SX M1.
This was because nobody had realigned the limit switch bracket after the incident with the MODS cart.
Spent several hours doing closed-dome testing of new TCS Build 2012G. Most of the issues discovered were related to
the new CentOS6 operating system.
Doug says that DX M2 is in a peculiar state, so he's waiting for the Arcetri guys to check it in their morning.
See the critical Issues 4188 and 4189 where we seem to have lost communication with the network switch for SX M2.
We are keeping 2012G in-place anticipating some closed-dome presets tomorrow.
