Waiting for the Jack of Hearts

They’re renovating a lab down the hall from mine (this is what led to the power shutdown that temporarily disabled my wavemeter). Today’s agenda apparently involves a lot of drilling. Or, possibly, a bank robbery.

Whatever’s going on, the intermittent violent shaking of the floor is not so conducive to research with laser diodes. When the boys clean out the bank safe, I hope they make off with quite a haul. I’m going to lunch before anybody gets stabbed.
