----------------------------------------

Hello all and good news.

Attached is a picture of x rays diffracted from the Kohzu diamond
monochromator in the 7ID-A hutch, the first time the shutter was opened.

The mono is still outgassing badly, and since we can only get x rays into
the A hutch, the weekend will be mostly spent pumping further.  On Sunday
or Monday, we'll have the radiation surveys done to get beam further
downstream.  This will give us a full week to characterize the beam before
user operations begin.
