Of course it's been a busy time as always, but I'll quickly say I posted something on the general SETI blog:

The short story: Last week I and others on the Breakthrough Listen team took a trip to Parkes Observatory in NSW, Australia. A short but productive visit, getting much needed maintenance done. However, we're still not exactly quite there for generating/distributing raw data from Parkes to be used for SETI@home. This will happen, though!

Thanks for the Parkes update Matt. Is it the data reduction holding things up?

I've been to Parkes too. I'm glad you had a good time there, and got to see more than what the average visitor would.

So you got a chance to go to THE dish? Lucky man! Awesome :)

So what part and how much of the sky will you be able to eventually observe from Down Under?
