Message 1910730 - Posted: 5 Jan 2018, 1:56:08 UTC - in response to Message 1910719.  

I've been with the project since 2002 and I don't ever remember getting notifications about unusual data. Lots of interesting signals are found, but they are stored in a database for closer examination at a later time. There was a plan in place to put together a quasi-realtime analyzer called the "Near Time Persistency CheKeR" or NTPCKR (prounounced "nitpicker"), but lack of funds, manpower (funds), and barely keeping the existing operations running (manpower + funds), the project was shelved.

Hasn't NTPCKR now been merged/replaced with Nebula and been operating for a year?

I don't know about merged/replaced. I was under the impression that NTPCKR was still possible if they could improve their hardware and database. NTPCKR was supposed to be "almost" real-time while Nebula was supposed to be long-term score keeping, if I understood correctly. I could be wrong.

NTPCKR was replaced by Nebula. Einstein@home was gracious to allow use of their super computer to analyze the completed work that NTPCKR was supposed to do. They haven't done all of it at once but do it in sections as Einstein schedule allows.
