The secondary science database finally recovered. As we poke and prod at this new configuration we're still finding things we might have done differently, but we're planning to just seal it up and call this project done. Actual gains in speed/performance are to be tested.

As many of you regular/avid readers know the last release of the cuda client got a little messed up - people were getting checksum errors meaning the files were corrupted. Bob did the code signing procedure this last time around from his desktop machine which has recently had problems with its memory DIMMs. This is our best, albeit vague and unsatisfying, theory as to why a small subset of files got corrupted when simply copying from one directory to another.

Continuing progress on radar blanking and the NTPCkr. Jeff and I are anxious to get these projects done already.
