If you visit this blog because you are obsessed with all the latest trivia on the build-up of the Large Hadron Collider physics runs, then you are probably already familiar with the Operations Vistar pages and the various live event displays and blogs listed in our right hand column.
Now you can go one step further using the LHC announcer which uses a voice synthesiser to call out all the latest minutiae about the running of the LHC. This is a version of the announcement system used in the LHC control rooms to wake up the operators if they fall asleep. This public web version has been kindly provided by Stephen Page who works at CERN. The page says it only works with the Firefox browser.
