Review minutes from the meeting on August 9

We went over the minutes.

On run readiness, Beni has once again moved the start counter to ready on the HCO list after looking at scalers on Monday. The problem with temperatures reported last time was indeed a disconnected cable; it was plugged back in weeks ago.

NIM Paper

Mark reported that Eric Pooser has nearly completed putting in the edits from Elton and Beni and has trimmed some parts from the paper. A new version is expected presently.

Collaboration Meeting

Mahmoud will give a 20 minute talk at the meeting on the latest propagation time calibration, efficiency and resolution as a function of z, and comparisons between data and Monte Carlo.

Sean mentioned that there is a new set of simulations coming that should be used to re-evaluate the Monte Carlo results when they become available.
