Down for a while...
We're configuring a new upload server that will have more capacity than the current one. (Solid state drives, for example). We're going to test it on beta first, of course, so we'll be down while the transition happens. I expect a day or two.

We will be out of work for a while.
We're testing BOINC updates, which have broken the splitters.

ARM64 (aarch64) Android client in beta testing
This is a bare bones client without NEON optimized routines for SETI@home, but does have NEON FFTW routines. It'll be a while before I can modify the ARMv6 NEON routines to work when compiled under aarch64.

Distributing 4-bit workunits
This has been in the works for a while. I'll be distributing some workunits with 4-bit complex samples. They'll be twice the size of the current 2-bit workunits, but will give us 46% reduction in noise power.

It's possible that some of the app versions date from before the 4-bit quantization code existed in the client (but I don't think so). If things are going to break it should be obvious pretty quickly.

The change should occur this afternoon.

Arecibo still threatened with closure.
Recently the NSF announced its intent to start the process which could lead to the partial shutdown, mothballing, or complete disassebly of the Arecibo Observatory. As most of you know, this is not a new discussion in the scientific community. Several years ago we had asked you write letters to Congress in hopes of averting this fate.

A petition has been started on to ask the President to ensure it is funded. I'm pessimistic about the chances that it will change anything, as the President cannot change Congressional budget priorities, and only has limited ability to move money between NSF programs. However, bringing attention to the issues of science funding in this country cannot hurt.
