In the course of working on the drifting RFI algorithm (which I'll describe separately) I made some upgrades to the RFI browsing interface, to wit:

- Signal time and frequency are shown as offsets from the origin of the current window. So instead of seeing e.g. 1418997711.1092 you see -10 or 200. Also, time offsets are shown in seconds rather than days.

- You can now select what signals types you want to see; for drifting RFI, I'm only concerned with spikes.

- If you're in "custom RFI" mode and you zoom or move, you stay in that mode, with the same parameters.

- The signal list in custom RFI mode now shows only the non-RFI signals (it used to show all of them).

- I added buttons for 2X and 2/ zoom.

... and various other details.

I'm curious, what is 6,5 or 4,5 beams in signal listing?
