We have an old building that is leaky, a serious water spill occurred when the last storm hit the east wing of the Androclus building. The equipment (the SPEII) was not damaged due to the swift action of Martijn Moolenaar (thanks again). Apparently, the rain leaked into the building at multiple departments and it is a major concern of the maintenance department. Although patch-type preventive measures are in progress, recurrence of the flooding cannot be ruled out. We urge users to notify CCI staf asap when it occurs again.
To minimize damage due to such a recurring accident we moved the SPEII to the east wall of the room and lifted all wiring from the floor. The machine is in full operation again.
Clearly, another save location for the SPEII in the tightly packed CCI is high on our agenda.
