Mark has measured the expansion coefficients for both the aneroids at 0.03 mm/mbar - so they are working fine. In fact this is 40% more sensitive than I had assumed, so it is a mystery why the barocomp is not working. I have a theory that there is something funny about the way the flexure of the pendulum suspension works, so I am going to have a go putting the compensator further down the pendulum, away from the flexure. This is what Philip Woodward did ... so maybe there is a good reason. It will mean having to screw up the regulation nut under the bob again - which is what stuffed up the temperature compensator last time. Ah well, it all makes work for the working man to do.

... the observant amongst you will have noticed that the clock sped up by 3 seconds retrospectively. This is not relativity in action - it is simply that the clock is actually sounding half a second fast at the moment, so I have brought the logger in line with the real world. Yes, there is a real world!
