Yet another trip to the synchrotron

The first week at a synchrotron facility is always the worst, especially if things aren't going that well with the end station where the experiments are carried out.

Fortunately we've managed to fix all the problems and are getting some good data, but I've been working 12-16 hours per day since Monday and it is starting to take its toll.

Next week won't be too bad, though. I'll be getting comfortably numb with sleep deprivation. ;-)
