The new drive enclosure (to read drives full of data from Arecibo) didn't work. Long story, but the bottom line is we aren't exactly sure why and we're tired of screwing around with what will be the new master science database server. So we're changing plans a bit. Basically we'll put the enclosure on some other server - we just aren't exactly sure which one yet (need to first determine bandwidth requirements, PCI card support, etc.). We'll get the data on-line soon somehow, and then splitting it into workunits will follow.

What this all means is that we are no longer waiting on anything to do the final step of the science database migration. And what that means is a semi-outage (during which splitters and assimilators will be turned off) of a day or so as we move all the remaining data to the new server. Then a complete (but shorter) outage to point everything over to the new database and make sure it is behaving properly. This may happen during our usual Tuesday outage next week. We'll post something on the front page as the big event approaches.

It should be stated that about a month ago we finally got the SETHI project up and running again. At least some science is getting done with the data we are collecting at Arecibo - one of the most detailed maps of hydrogen in the local interstellar medium. But what about interesting SETI candidates for reobservation? What happened to those?

Well, work on the next phase of candidate generation has been blocked (for a very long time) behind other big tasks (moving the whole project over to BOINC, getting a new data recorder developed, installed, tested, and put into production, migrating data and bringing the new science database server online, putting out countless figurative fires...). Once the new database is in play we still have to do significant analysis and data correction before we can to work at finding E.T. hiding within a terabyte of spikes, gaussians, pulses, and triplets.

Appart for Anandtech's stats, it shows how much more/less than Anandtech.
Also shows based on Average Work Done how many days for Anandtech to overtake the team, or be overtaken by a team behind...
