NMR Automation Fixed - Night Sample Rerun

The Automation problem is now fixed.  It seems to be related to a software clinch in the background.
This clinch has affected the samples from Kraatz group last night.  Due to this unforeseen problem,  I have authorized the Kraatz group, this time only, to rerun their 2D experiment during the day to make up for the loss of spectrometer time last night.  

Thank you for your cooperation.
