Thanks for publishing such a detailed status report!

It's a pity, that nothing was discovered so far :(

Hmm,

Why are the graphs 5.1 and 13.3a flat lines? Or am I missing something?

5.1 is a flat line, because a detector in space far from our solar system would not be spinning or orbiting the sun and so there would be no frequency modulation due to its motion.

13.3a is not quite flat. Look at the vertical scale, and the zoom below.

13.3a/b is the frequency of a pulsar located directly over the Earth's orbital plane. There is no annual variation of the Earth's distance from this pulsar, so no annual frequency modulation. Just the (smaller) frequency modulation due to the Earth's rotation, shown in 13.3b.

Nice report! Something for everyone! I got to page 10 before my brain started to hurt.

### Thanks Bruce, Fascinating

Thanks Bruce, Fascinating reading even though I don't fully understand all of it. Makes the project more interesting though, and nice to know the direction we are headed.

I have just posted the long-promised first report on the Einstein@Home S3 analysis. Please use this thread for questions, answers, comments and discussion.

It's been 30+ years since I received my Physics degree and long years of hard work and raising a family have migrated Physics to the back burner of my life. But thanks to the amazing work and articulate analysis of Einstein@Home, there is growing hope that I may fully revive my Physics roots. Thank you all for your amazing work!!

Is there a projected schedule for the completion of the S4 analysis?

There are only 10 kind of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't!

### Outstanding

Outstanding report.

Interesting to note that LIGO Hanford is more sensitive than GEO600 on S3. Is GEO600 up to par on S4? What are some of the upgrades that are planned for LIGO Hanford, and how will they improve sensitivity?

### I've been away on business

I've been away on business since Sept 10 and I find a very pleasant document awaiting my perusal now that I'm back. I'm referring to the well written progress report that has appeared during my absence. I have read it through once and intend to digest it more fully in the coming weeks. I'm extremely pleased to be able to more fully understand the importance of the science to which I'm contributing. My personal prediction is that as more people visit the website and discover this report, there will be a steady stream of previously "diehard" Seti only crunchers who will suddenly realise that EAH is equally worthy of their support. As one of those who were canvassing for this type of progress report many months ago, let me say that the wait has been more than worthwhile. Well done - from a very satisfied contributor.

Cheers,
Gary.

### Does anybody know if and when

Does anybody know if and when this program will run smoothly with windows?Is anything being done to correct the problems?Thanks

I only use windows boxes for running EAH. It runs absolutely magnificently under all versions of windows, 98, ME, 2K and XP. I can't say I've had a single problem with any of them.

How do you correct a non-existent problem? Might I suggest that your "problem", if you care to describe the actual symptoms you are experiencing, may in fact have nothing to do with the interaction between the science app and the OS. And you really couldn't have picked a less appropriate thread in which to tell us that EAH wont run smoothly on windows. Here's my suggestion. Go to the "Getting Started" message board and tell us precisely what the symptoms of your problem really are. Be very thorough in your description and I'm sure somebody very knowledgeable will be only too pleased to help you. I'm sure you really do have some problem. But you must learn to describe it fully and to do so in the appropriate forum.

Best of luck with it.

Cheers,
Gary.
