Subject: More information about MC2 ringdown 
As Tobin wrote two hours ago, we (Andrey, Tobin, Robert) made a series of ringdown measurements for MC2
in the spirit of the measurement described by Rana -> see
entry from Mon Oct 29 23:47:29 2007, rana, Other, IOO, MC Ringdowns.

I attach here some pictures that we saw on the screen of the scope, but I need to admit that I am not experienced enough to present a nice fit to these data, although I attach fits that I am able to do today.

I definitely learned a lot of new Matlab functions from Tobin - thanks to him!, but I need to learn two more things:

Firstly, I do not know how to delete "flat" region (regions before the ringdown starts) in Matlab ->
I needed to delete the entries for times before the ringdown ("negative times") by hand in the text-file, which is extremely non-elegant method;

Secondly, I tried to approximate the ringdown curve by a function ydata=a*exp(b*xdata) but I am not exactly sure if this equation of the fitting curve is a good fit or if a better equation can be used.

It seems, in this situation it is better for me to ask more experienced "comrades" on November 7th.

P.S. It seems I really like the type of message "Bureaucracy" - I put it for every message. As Alain noted, maybe that is because some things are very bureacratized in the former USSR / Russia. By the way, when I was young, November 7th was one of two most important holidays in the USSR - I liked that holiday because I really liked military parades on the red square. I attach a couple of pictures. November 7 is the anniversary of the Revolution of 1917.
