Steady progress

Between being very busy and the network behaving badly it's been more than a week since my last post. A lot has happened. Lyman has left on Sunday morning and on the same day in the evening Rolando Dunner arrived from Santiago. We have installed the new final cables between the generator and the Equipment Room (ER) in buried PVC conduit. We also have installed a Cat 5 cable in another buried conduit between the ER and the communication tower. Most of the cables connecting the motion control cabinet (Kuka cabinet) and the telescope are neatly laid down in the trays and connected. The two racks in the ER are also being populated with computers and network equipments. Meanwhile ConPax is busy finishing the ground screen, the frame is more than 50% completed and nearly all the two first panels rows are installed.
