I hope they fix the problem soon, it's getting a bit annoying this WU shortage.

Now the BLCs are back, but it appears the Arecibo files aren't working. The files are ending in Errors, the creation rate looks low, and All I'm receiving is BLC5 VLARs.

. . It is back but there are changes ... the GBT tasks have changed designation ... they are now Blc05. One can only wonder what the significance of this change is. Will they take longer? Will they be quicker? Or is is just business as usual with a different name? :) OR will there be even more varieties of GBT task ?

So can I wish for PFB and GBT splitters to peacefully coexist? Or is that too close to politics? :)

Not much I suspect. Here is a response I got when I questioned them about what the number means.

There are 8 (soon to be 16) compute nodes (fast servers) at Green Bank, numbered blc0 to blc7. Each sucks in 187.5 MHz of the total observing band. There's a bit more detail on file formats at

. . Thank you Zalster that was actually kind of informative. It explains the change in designation to accommodate the extra 8 servers. So we CAN expect to see Blc types from 08 to 15 to start showing up. It is interesting then that the major difference (possibly the only difference) between Blc varieties is the spectrum they are capturing, which would mean the reason that Blc05's are so nasty is they are capturing a more difficult area of the spectrum, maybe one where the background radiation is worst. So the app takes a lot more time/passes to separate out the possible signals. Which means like them or hate them we probably really need to process them. Though if I were sending a signal across the cosmos to catch someone's attention I would most likely position it as far as possible from frequencies that were overcrowded to give it the best possible signal to noise ratio I could achieve. But that is me.

Looks like we're almost out of GBT data. Splitter output dropping off again, Ready to send buffer is making it's way back down to 0.

EDIT-
And the only Arecibo work I've got since the re-introduction of Guppies have been resends. Not a single recently split WU.

Yeah, I wasn't convinced the PFB splitters were actually producing anything, but a review of download logs for the last 6 hours indicate they are ...
Guess we'll see once the final GBT channel gets split in a few minutes.

Should be sleeping, but I am up doing an early morning rig check.
Sent messages to Eric and Jeff regarding the situation as the SSP shows it.
But of course it's 4:20AM in Berkeley, so nothing's gonna get fixed for a while.

Now, back to bed for me.

No the opposite if you had. The minions are out and about fiddling with stuff for revenge. More to the point can you prove it isn't hillary or Obama, or their minions, interfering with your flow ?

First thing that went thru my mind when I saw they were starting fires and smashing windows on Campus last week. I had to wonder where on Berkeley the Seti offices were and where the servers were located. Second was glad it was at night and hopefully none of the staff was on campus.
