This is really quite puzzling

This is really quite puzzling :-(. I really get the feeling that you are trying to open the initial file or the file h1_----.zip itself, not the file that was created by unzipping that file (h1_---- , without the zip extension). The only file that can be read with wordpad is the one that is created by running ezip or whatever other unzipping software you are using.

One of my machines has

One of my machines has BoincLogX running, so I've got a collection of upload files stored. It doesn't catch every one (takes too much CPU to test often enough for that), but there's a sample.

I found h1_0754.00_S5R4__324_S5R5a_1_0 from about a week ago. It's from the same machine and series as task 128026291, so you can see it's the current app and data.

Adding the .zip extension and decompressing it (from 219KB to 830KB), I got data perfectly intelligible to Notepad:

754.1395173661 3.681946 0.7306352 -1.4905e-009 5.4518 3.67919 0.726603 0.261 0.962
754.1395173661 5.347588 0.7306352 -6.3064e-010 5.98825 5.341667 0.7359108 0.0883 1.01
754.1395173661 5.87358 0.7306352 -1.122e-009 5.48182 5.869825 0.7386029 0.346 1.04

I used a good old-fashioned WinZip 8.1 under Vista, but I'm sure anything would do (zip is a very standard format): yes, just tested the same file with the built-in compression wizard in Windows XP, and it decompressed properly - though XP needs WordPad to show the data clearly, that version of Notepad can't handle the *nix line breaks.

The raw data file (before unzipping) has the filename "h1_0754.00_S5R4__324_S5R5a_1_0" clearly visible in plain text near both the beginning and the end of the file when viewed in WordPad: I think this is typical of all zip-compressed files.

Edit - found the exact task: 127714028. Never got round to checking page 2!

That looks like one of the 4MB input data files (like h1_0928.65_S5R4).

To see the output data file (the one in zip format), you have to suspend network activity in BOINC manager and wait until an Einstein task finishes. Only then the file you look for is to be found.

Well spotted,

Well spotted, Gundolf.

Indeed, as I wrote, the file we are alooking for should have a name like

h1_FFFF.FF_S5R4_SEQ_S5R5a_N_M (where FFFF.FF, SEQ, N and M are numbers).

Hi all!

Remember those Topcat diagrams from S5R3?

I think it's interesting to see that the peaks spotted in this thread are mentioned in the early S5 data analysis result paper, in Tables III and IV on page 13.

E.g. 645.58 Hz is near a now understood instrument line. Another peak near 345.8 Hz (spotted by hoarfrost) is within another rather "thick" instrument line around 346.0 Hz.

Well, this is no surprise of course, but kind of nice to see these signals again in the results paper.
