Those panicking about a coming storm due to lack of data... The well is pretty dry but Jeff and I just uncovered a stash of tapes from 2011 that require some re-analysis, so that's why you'll see a bunch showing up in splitter queue over the weekend (hopefully before the the results-to-send queue drops to zero).

In the meantime, we are still recording data at AO (not fast enough to keep our crunchers supplied), but.... this situation has really pushed us to devote more resources to finally finishing the GBT splitter, which will avail to us another reserve supply of data in case we hit another dry spell.

The network switch on Tuesday seems to have gone fairly well. We are now sending all our bits over the campus net just like the very old days .

Thank you for the information Matt. It's always good to hear about what's going on at HQ.

However? Where are the AP's?
Please save us Obi-Wan Lebofsky, you're our only hope.

Say, Matt....
Know you have been hard at work on the GBT project, but any idea when we might see the next shipment from Arecibo?

Meow?

More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

Good news on the switchover. Maybe we will get a fancy new bandwidth graph sometime this quarter as well.

When we run low on data to split & send out I just think of this little guy.

Why don't you just crunsh on what is there? I really don't understand this "AP only" -attitude.

But is a personal preference thing I think you will find. Michael I do have partly agree with you though. At the end of the day though everybody is entitled to their own opinions.

Thanks Matt for the updates. You and Jeff certainly managed to find a lot of work of from 2011. All the best with the work on the new splitter
