Does someone know when split will occur on mid 2008/2009 data?

SETI@home Data Distribution History

The following is a chart of all data collected at Arecibo Observatory which has been split (i.e. turned into workunits) and distributed to our clients. Note there are data we collected but not represented here as it hasn't yet been split/analyzed.

= classic data = multibeam data


Numbers in the boxes represent the count of workunit groups on that day. Each workunit group is about 107 seconds, though contiguous workunit groups overlap for about 20 seconds. Each group is split up (by frequency) into 256 workunits and sent to SETI@home clients. Multibeam data are collected simultaneously on seven receivers (classic had only one receiver) so those counts will generally be larger.

ahh I see what you mean. We are currently working our way through several years of data that was considered to noisy to work through. they've developed a blanking process that eliminates most of the noise. When we get through the old data we'll start on the newer stuff.

BTW it really doesnt matter what year we process. the Older WU's may hold the signal we are looking for. so its a good idea to look at everything we can.
