1) Gokhan Unel discussed NuMi tools that could be used to design
an optimized superbeam.  These included:
GNuMI:  geant 3 simulation
pbeam:  Home made, simplistic, but 100X faster.
For Minos, components simulated have included horn 1, horn 2, plug, hadronic hose.
Additional components might include dipoles and slits, to reduce backgrounds and
the high energy tail.  GNuMi is easier to modify.

2) Maury Goodman presented the case for Theseus (continued operation
of the Soudan 2 detector).  The detector has had good operational efficiency
for the past 5 years.  It has been been an option for early NuMi running, but
there is a strong committment to have Minos ready at the beginning, and
Theseus is getting lost in the shuffle.  While Theseus is only 20% of the
mass of Minos, it is more fine-grained, with gas tubes seperated by
1.2 mm of Iron.  This gives it better trigger efficiency, and some advantages
in detecting electrons and taus.  It doesn't outperform Minos in any area
(except it might see more "rock" muons), but Maury made a good case
that for a modest cost ($150K/year) it can confirm Minos with a complementary
detector, and add a bit to the precision of the measurements.  There is
currently in internal debate within Minos on whether they should go
forward with this proposal or concentrate exclusively on the
Minos detector.
