Hi All,

Phil's thesis mentions the labwatch plugin for blacs, which I'm curious about. It doesn't seem to be included in blacs at the moment (; is it available online somewhere?

For context, I've written some code to lock a couple of our lasers as well as check if they are still in lock. I'm hoping to integrate that into blacs as a plugin so that it can detect if a laser goes out of lock, pause the blacs shot queue, relock the laser, and then unpause the queue. That's not quite what the labwatch plugin is designed to do, but I thought it still might be a good reference while writing a new plugin. Or maybe a plugin like this already exists?

Hi Zak,

There might be a newer version in one of the other branches of that might want to check!
