Daniele said the old TOF is replaced with a new computer. The new CAENET card runs on PCI interface. Now the TOF program is running in Visual Basic environment and much faster than before. He found a bug in the old code which caused frequent crashes. This problem was known as 'midnight crash'. It turned out a simple coding error on time difference calculation caused freezing the computer around midnight. After upgrade it worked fine for 7 days before it froze again. One bad CAEN HV card caused it. He sent it out for repair. He promised to write new instructions for shift crews before his departure to Italy this week.

Mary said the monitoring displays at the CLC computer are not iFix based. The software package currently used was only a test version and we need to buy a full version to create CPR monitoring plots. Steve suggested that we should switch over to iFix.
