A tutorial on what we're actually doing here would be welcome - if such already exists then please include a URL with your flames - for all I know we could be trying to guess Bill Gates' M/C #. Part of the tutorial should include an explanation of WU names, ie the difference between *proseven*...*protwelve*. I already know that the difference between the *pro* and the *tunescan* is that the pros only do 10,000 circuits and the *tunescan*s do 1,000,000 but more detail would be welcome.

From http://athome.web.cern.ch/athome/LHC/lhc.html :

1,296 superconducting dipoles and more than 2,500 other magnets will guide and collide the LHC beams.
