==== Report for the week of 3/18 ====
 * BS
  * Terrence notice that one of the IP LVDTs was not working. We traced it to an unplugged cable, plugged it back in and screwed it together to prevent a recurrence.
  * Simon helped us rebuild the damaged LEN OL QPD stage and Terrence reinstalled it. We removed a C-clamp that we had been using to immobilize the breadboard because it interfered with the QPD stage, and replaced it with a more elegant solution using a dog clamp underneath.
  * We noticed that the BS IP had fallen over in +L at some time shortly before Nakano-san aligned the optic on 3/18. Terrence tried to recenter it but it was unstable. We decided to remove the tank lid one more time and remove some arc weights. The IP frequency had been 39 mHz the last time it was measurable, and we increased it to a much-safer 80 mHz by removing 9 kg. We believe we were able to recover Nakano-san's alignment fairly closely.
  * Terrence then recalibrated and diagonalized both the TILT and LEN OL.
 * SR2
  * Terrence recalibrated the OL.
 * SR3
  * Mark pulled out unused cables leading into the SR3 cleanbooth.
 * SRM
  * Terrence set up the SRM Guardian.
 * Etc/All
  * Mark did an audit of the OL whitening/dewhitening system and fixed a bunch of problems: the SRM chassis was the wrong type, with no actual whitening card; SR2 and SRM needed whitening filters turned on; BS LEN needed the dewhitening turned on; SR2, SR3 and SRM needed dewhitening filters installed and turned on; SRM needed more gain.
  * Terrence weeded out a minor error from his OL diagonalization scheme and got L, T and Y independent at the 1% level for SR2 and SRM. He will do SR3 next.
  * Fabian measured the gain resistor values and other settings of the LVDT drivers, in case a card or chassis fails and we have to approximate the original state without the chance to recalibrate from scratch.
  * Fabian monitored the pumpdown.
==== Report for the week of 3/25 ====
 * Mark and Fabian helped Fujii-kun with PR2. The problem turned out to be two broken flags. Hirata-san drew up a design for a jig to help reglue the flags in situ.
 * Fabian documented the height budget for the Type B suspension in the wiki ([[KAGRA/Subgroups/VIS/OpsManual/TypeB/SR3Data]] etc).
 * Terrence wrote up the final version of his OL diagonalization scheme.
 * Terrence worked on L2P decoupling for the TM.
 * Terrence and Mark edited the Type B Guardian to put turning on the payload damping later in the sequence, to help ensure that the OSEMs are not touching by the time they're needed (which can happen if the BF is buoyancy compensated for vacuum but the suspension is vented).
 * Mark started on a big tidy-up of the cleanbooth.
