I finished debugging (hopefully) the new text-only data format changes.

Then I did a run of the pipeline with 100 birdies, and scored 100K pixels. I also developed a web interface for browsing pixels.

The purpose of this exercise is to see whether our back end rejects the birdie signals as RFI (it shouldn't) and whether it detects them as high-scoring multiplets (it should).

The results were promising. None of the birdie signals were removed as RFI. Some of the birdies appeared in the top 100 multiplets. One appeared in the top 100 pixels. We need to do somewhat better than this, but it's a start. We'll need to look at the various scoring algorithms.

I'm trying to finish this up before switching back to BOINC soon. Also I need to run the new pipeline on SERENDIP data.

Thanks for update.
Could we have few examples (as links to particular pixels/multiplets in browser) of those birdies vs known to be RFI of same type?
