Subject: Never use lower case in MEDM/DAQ/CDS 

There is an official policy to never use lower case letters in names of front end systems, channel names, MEDM screens, etc. Don't ask why or ask me to prove to you how exactly it breaks things; just trust me that it does and change all of your lower case stuff into upper and the rebuild the front end.

I also found that there was a profusion of sample rates in the C2ATF.txt filter coefficient file. This doesn't make any sense, so I changed them all to 32768 Hz. I have also now hit 'Load Coefficients' in some random places, so beware. Your filters may have been bogus before.
