Subject: c1psl rebooted for new RCPID database settings 

The RC thermal PID is now controllable from its own MEDM screen which is reachable from the FSS screen. The slowpid.db and psl.db have been modified to add these records and all seems to be working fine.

Also, I've attached the c1psl startup output that we got on the terminal. This is just for posterity.

I'm also done tuning the PID for now. Using Kp = -1.0, Ki = -0.01, and Kd = 0, the can servo now has a time constant of ~10 minutes and good damping as can be seen in the StripTool snap below. These values are also now in the saverestore.req so hopefully its fully commissioned.

I bet that its much better now than the MINCO at holding against the 24 hour cycle and can nicely handle impulses (like when Steve scans the table). Lets revisit this in a week to see if it requires more tuning.
