Not much time to report very much, but the good news is that we finally got one of those new Intel machines working. Eric was in over the weekend installing a new disk controller card, and Jeff and I wrapped up the OS install/configuration today. We now have a new system with 24 processors (4x6 2.13 GHz) and 64 GB ram. We'll try to make this a replica mysql server (in addition to sidious) and see how it does, maybe tomorrow...?

Data-wise, we're finding the Alfa receiver isn't on as much as we thought, and we're running low of data from our archives, as well as data currently on-line. Actually, that's not true at all - we have plenty of data taken between January and April 2008 which has the hardware radar blanking signal (so we can reject RFI), but was accidentally pre-precessed (so we have to unprecess after the fact). Not that big a deal.

About to disappear into the basement and throw out a bunch of old computer junk we haven't used in many years (various people are complaining about how much space it's taking up, which is fair).

Seems like it'll be named Mork. Will the next server to go online be named Mindy?

Good to hear about the new boxen.

Will this replace sidious is all goes well or will it work in parallel with sidious to help the replica keep up?

If the stuff hasn't gone in the skip yet, how about auctioning off the old stuff with the proceeds going to the project? I am sure most of the people here would love to have a piece of SETI history...
