I'm getting lost, too.

I'll be available after 6 am your time (8 am EST). Thank you for trying to help me get to the bottom of this stuff. I will try to summarize what I think are three problems. Maybe only two, really, as two of the three are probably related. The weather isn't very good tomorrow, with rain starting about 11am here. In two sentences:

1. Why StartupObs.js sometimes doesn't run. ("telescope not connected" exception)
2. Why there are persistent exceptions thrown related to dome events (exception during dome opening and/or closing)

I'll try to put the error message from each type of exception log into one document, with links to the Forum thread. That's come later.

Is there anything else you want to have in hand before tomorrow?
