    keyword=plans for statistics on this d(g,p)n point

    I've looked over some statistics from the overnight runs.

    We are taking about 1.2 M events / hour for gamma d,
    and now should get an estimated error bar on Pn of about
    0.13 for the 3 M events taken. with 1.5 + 3 + 6 inch carbon doors.
    (There are 1 M events with thicker doors.) We would like to halve
    the uncertainty ==> take ~ 9 M more events (~ 8 hours)
    gamma d., for total 12 M

    Radiator-out running should get ~1/2 as much time / 1/8 as much
    statistics. We have 0.5 M T3's radiator out, we need 1 M more
    d + radiator-out events (~ 3 hours).

    For gamma - p, the raw T3 rate is about 1/3as much as gamma - d,
    but also from the online replay it appears only 1/3 as many events reconstruct
    well in this data. Thus we should measure gamma-p for about 1 M events,
    - 150 k obtained = 850 k more (~ 2 more hours).

    The radiator-out + proton running should be for about 150 k more events (2 hours).
