The analysis of the results from the four combined Einstein@home runs on S6 LIGO data are out: Results of the deepest all-sky survey for continuous gravitational waves on LIGO S6 data running on the Einstein@Home volunteer distributed computing project

We will shortly also submit the paper for publication in Physical Review D, but we wanted to share these results with you immediately. We have not yet found a gravitational wave signal but we could bound the height of mountains on neutron stars in the neighbourhood of Earth. For example, we can now say that there is no neutron star spinning at 9 ms or faster within 100 parsecs of Earth with a bump higher than 1 cm!
