All,

Was any of our work used to trace this signal?

No, the telescopes used to locate the signal are not used by SETI@Home.

They already know it's not a signal from ET. Just a couple of neutron stars bouncing off each other.

Whoops I should have made a spoiler alert for anyone who didn't check it out already.

My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.
