Failure...

It seems that the last five years I have worked for a project which failed. It was always at the verge of failing, but managed to get along somehow, but right now my measurements suggest that the detector won't work. It might be possible to get some stuff out of it by intensive data massage, but it basically does not work.

Very motivating to have spent the last two years in a definitely not loved environment for that. I will get drunk quite soon...

Does this really come as a surprise? I mean: what did you expect? ;-) The real fun will be how everybody involved in this project will somehow manage to sell it as a great success. Projects like that never fail. As simple as that.

But they will be sold as being a success to outsiders. Internally a huge finger pointing will take place....

I hope that you at least succeeded in getting drunk. When you sober up, get a ticket to Erlangen, write a few dozen pages about whatever the hell you like, make a title page in the correct format with the words "Recoil", "Hermes", and "Exclusively time-reversal invariant infinite hadroproduction of top mesons" in the title. This is called a thesis. After you do this you can get drunk again, but this time in a nice franconian Biergarten.
