As of right now, there is only one dataset left being split.
Are we out of raw data?

and the new since Arecibo came back up?


It kind of looked like those newer "tapes' last week had been manually added (perhaps as a test), but the automated spooler is still pointed at the old radar scrubbed inventory (which has now run dry right on schedule).

Matt had indicated back in October that all new Aricibo data would be run through the scrubbers as well, so maybe there is still a bit of work to glue that process together. With any luck, someone will at least manually add a dozen or so tapes tomorrow... or we might be headed into a very dry weekend (aside from a pittance of re-issues).

I kinda assumed that during the processing of all the old reblanked work we were still getting some new data stored up which would be considerable at this point.

Ah well......it'll all come out in the wash.
Just wanna know where we stand as far as the backlog of work to process is.
And wish that Matt would grace us with some regular tech news again.

Hope he is OK....he spoke of being sick for a spell some time ago.

Bad Karma..........
Not a good time to do it, 'cuz the splitters are not at their best right now.

Best of luck getting some to replace them.

Definitely not a Dry Blackthorn day, then! In theory, I have enough work for my 'main', to last until the early evening. After that.......

Dear......you have to maintain your cache.

I have enough work here to last about 10 days.......a little less on the Cuda rigs.........
I have been long chastised for doing so.

But why do you think I have been doing so well for so long?

There was an old Mark Twain quote about an old woman neglecting her vices.....

I will attempt to paraphrase it.......

An old woman went to her doctor........
He was an old doctor, so he forgave her for doing so.
She asked her doctor what she could do to get better.......
She had lived a saintly life all her years.
She did not drink, she did not smoke, she did not eat in excess.

The doctor tole her.
'There is nothing I can do for you....
'You have neglected your vices.'



I weather the storms.

I always have.

If I remember correctly, S@H data is recorded when the ALFA-L receiver is being used. We don't get telescope time, we just "piggyback" when others use it. Assuming I'm reading the Arecibo schedule correctly, we're in the process of crunching the last of the data collected just before Thanksgiving. The bad news is that the ALFA-L receiver hasn't been used much since November. Hardly at all, in fact. The good news is - according to this schedule - the ALFA-L receiver will be going to work 4-6 hours a day starting Saturday. We should start seeing some fresh stuff in a couple of weeks.

The replica is behind by a little over 5000 seconds, but I'm seeing as of 5:40pm PST, there's 1570 WU's for MB ready to send and 3 tapes in the splitter's, and on the graph that was posted, traffic is starting to pick up again. So maybe the weekend won't be a total bust.
