Last week I was watching events at the LHC at this screen:
http://lhc.web.cern.ch/lhc/
when something happened and there was a shutdown. In the “Comments” section at lower screen right, someone had entered “UFINO?” as a possible explanation for the shutdown. Is this shorthand for unidentified SUSY particle (of course ending in -INO)? I googled UFINO without any explanation.

UFO = Unidentified Falling Object = microscopic dust particle that impinges on the beam causing losses.

UFINO = small UFO
