    keyword=HV plan. Issues with Intel PC

    The issue with the Intel PC is, it seems, the USB to serial transition. 
    Brad Sawatzky says those can be slow and buggy.  
    
    So, here is my plan
    
    1. Implement HV servers on the laptops (only) on the two HRS.  This will
    make the HV controls fast.
    
    2. Use the Intel PCs as backups in case a laptop dies.  
    
    3. Purchase some PCI-to-serial cards and test these in the Compton DAQ
    test stand.  When that works we can put them in the HRS.  Possibly in the
    summer.
    
    4. I will assume that the bottom HV crate on R-HRS is not used.  It has
    only 3 cards and no cables going there.  The top HV crate has 15 cards
    and a lot cables.
