Subject: slider twiddling after reboot  

Sometimes after we reboot the front-end machines, some of the hardware gets stuck in an unknown state. We generally fix this by twiddling EPICS settings, which refresh the hardware somehow and put it into a known state. I've started a script (slider_twiddle) which we can just run after reboots to do this for us. Right now it just has the QPD whitening gain settings. As we find more stuff, we can add to it. It's in $SCRIPTS/Admin/.
