LHC Sixtrack News
Status, 26th August, 2012
MacOS executable is working, for some at least. I have queued 500,000 jobs, intensity scan, while I clear the decks. Many thanks for all the suggestions and comments on (very) long jobs.
More LHC Sixtrack news: Russia Team has issued a challenge, Hi, Higgs boson!, that will run from September 1, 2012 00:00 UTC till September 8, 2012 00:00 UTC. We are already entered, and we're defending a #19 world-wide position, which is under threat from the Egham Hills - eh.org team. So, set your recources for this project temporary at 100% in the search for the Higgs boson

An elderly woman in Winston County has had enough. Mabel Higgs, 84, a retired schoolteacher has disconnected her telephone and no longer answers her front door after weeks of "being harassed and exhausted" by local and national journalists.
According to her grandson Thomas Higgs, also of the hamlet of Arley, Mrs. Higgs began to receive calls several weeks ago as excitement built over the impending discovery of the "God particle," otherwise known as the "Higgs boson." "Young, crackpot journalists, who apparently know nothing of science heard the rumours of my mother's award-winning bosom, and they haven't stopped calling or trespassing her property," said Mr. Higgs.
Scientists believe that the Higgs boson is the particle that gives all matter its mass. Experts know that elementary particles like quarks and electrons are the foundation upon which all matter in the universe is built. They believe the elusive Higgs boson gives the particles mass and fills in one of the key holes in modern physics.
But don't tell that to journalists from TMZ, CNN, or even The Guardian out of the UK. "It is well known all over the county that my mother won a contest at the Winston County Fair back in 1955 for "Most Impressive Bosom," and that if you Google "Higgs bosom" you will eventually come up with records of her award, which she is still proud of. In fact, my Mom still refuses to go into a nursing home for fear that all the old widowed men won't leave her alone. She still has an impressive dÚcolletage. It's almost as impressive as her strawberry-rhubarb pie."
