I don't think there's anything for you to worry about there - just one of the random glitches that happens from time to time.


I already thought it's something like that. Thanks for the reply.

There are some interesting

There are some interesting pictures of the damage at Arecibo on the link below (from www.planetary.org), along with an explanation of the damage (basically an old, repaired, support cable started to come unravelled).

The Server Status page shows

The Server Status page shows 80 days of BRP4 work left.

Aproximately how many days are left for BRP4G and BRP4?

I know new beams can be added.

We try to keep enough beams

We try to keep enough beams to feed BRP4 for about a year. OTOH if we don't get any new data, I doubt that there's more than a week of work left for BRP4G.

About 2d left for BRP4G (87 beams at ~42 beams/d).

Better don't rely on BRP4G work only. If you selected specific applications to run, make sure to have BRP5 (Parkes Perseus Arm Survey) enabled as well.

Any news on BRP4 (GPU

Any news on BRP4 (GPU version)?

I can see that there are "tasks to send" in BRP4 queue... but I'm not receiving them (only BRP4 GPU enabled).

I'd rather see 100% completion that 1300-something days to completion...

Don't get BRP4 (Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo)) and BRP4G (Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo, GPU)) mixed up, these are different subprojects,
the 1300 days of work available is for BRP4 subproject, if you have Arm device running Linux or Android, or an Intel GPU on Windows, then you'll get work from that subproject.

Nvidia and AMD GPUs can get work from the BRP5 (Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Perseus Arm Survey)) subproject, there's plenty of work available for it.
