  1. SGR QPO Update
    • Paper draft availble. Intro is missing references. Sec. III is missing: need a description of astrowatch run. Interesting bits in extrapolation to design sensitivity.
    • Uncertainties: all ULs are increased by 25% to account for calibration uncertainties.
    • Draft now ready for comment from burst group and review group. Review group to read paper and provide comments.
    • Ben Owen and Joel Tohlene can probably help with intro. Mike Landry can help/write the astrowatch section. Contact them.
  2. S4 Untriggered Search Update... Draft paper:
    • All comments so far have been addressed.
    • Two new figures have been added.
    • Still need to change 1-pol isotropic to 2-pol isotropic in energetics.
    • Still cleaning up figures.
    • BLWN bursts: discovered frequency is base frequency, not central frequency. This is fixed in text.
    • CorrPower review: still making progress.
  3. GRB Search Update: What remains to be done?
    • Still need to understand what comes between the code review and the paper. Careful check of this.
    • Injections into on-source segment: need to either show that bias is small or redo injections into background segments.
    • Need more eyes to give a careful look at population modelling section.
  4. AOB
    • GWDAW ... not yet sure how many talks to be given but want to give SGR talk (with prelim results), LIGO-GEO coherent vs. incoherent, S5A results (WB+CorrPower or CohWB or QPipe).
    • S4 LIGO-GEO: box still closed on coherent analysis. Sensitivities are somewhat better for Coherent WB.
