[Jenne, with Matt and Fujimi as witnesses]

It might be about time to throw that champagne in the fridge.  Nice. Not quite close enough to talk about popping it open, but we'll want it chilled just in case... yeslaugh

I still haven't logged yesterday's work, and I'm still working now, so no details, but I just handed both CARM and DARM over to non-normalized RF signals, and had the arms stable at powers of about 105.  I was workinig on the ETM alignment, and the power was increasing, so I think that's where the extra power will come from. I was lowering the DARM gain as I improved the alignment, because the optical gain was increasing so much.  I probably just didn't do that fast enough for the last aligning, which is why I lost lock.

Anyhow, here's a plot, because I'm excited:
