Trying is a good start. =) I wouldn't know how everyone else's physics research works!
It went alright, needed to look at my notes better for setup though but someone was on hand to help out anyway. Had some radio frequency interference throughout (that's bad), but I may have lucked out with it not being at the few MHz I was most interested in (that's good!). Now I spend the next week being the support person for a telescope while editing a paper and adjusting a presentation for a talk next month.
It's nowhere near as shiny but it does have some things like a whole bunch of optical equipment and underground lasers. :B
I'm fine. Gave a short talk at the conference I mentioned, and next week being a support person for a telescope. This weekend I have a free Saturday, but Sunday heading up the coast to visit family and Monday observing from a telescope through my laptop. That was going to happen Tuesday but my proposal got shifted to the public holiday.
