Subject: Arms locked in IR for many hours 

Someone left the arms aligned, and the LSC engaged, so the arms have been locked almost continuously for several days hours.  The trend below is for 4 days hours.  What is most impressive to me is that we don't see a big degredation in the transmitted power over this time.

EDIT: Okay, I got excited without paying attention to units.  It was only several hours, which is not too unusual.  Although the lack of transmission degredation is still unusual.  However, this may be due to improved oplevs?  I'm not sure why, but we're not seeing (at least in this plot) the degredation to ~0.7 after an hour or so.
