Problems: 

Engineering Night, testing interface between DECam AOS and Blanco 4MAP for tweaking the mirror figure.   Did not work, and software changes in the AOS killed the tweaks for the hexapod.  Kevn Reil logged in an patched out his changed code.   DES OBsTac test failed due to issue with it being July.  Calle Eric Nielson at 3:30 am amd he hacked the code and the configuration file.  It then worked   Cloudy for about 1/3 of the night, never photometric so could not do star flats or CalSpec star.   Spent time on verifying the new pointing model.
