Subject: possible front-end timing issue 



Is there a reason the framebuilder status light is red for all the front ends?

Also, I reenabled PRM watchdog.

Apparently there is a bug in the timing cards having to do with the new year roll-over that is causing front-end problems.  From Rolf:

For systems using the Spectracom IRIG-B cards for timing information, the code did not properly roll over the time for
2012 (still thinks it is 2011 and get reports from DAQ of timing errors (0x4000)). I have made a temporary fix for this
in the controller.c code in branch-2.3, branch-2.4 and release 2.3.1. 

I was going to check to see if the 40m is suffering from this. I'll be over to see if that's the problem.

 The problem is the same as yesterday.
