Hello,

I only get Astropulse workunits now but it is unlikely that they get done in time on my notebook.
Is it possible to get smaller amounts? If not, how do I get classical units?

Regards, Paul

See this FAQ on how to do Seti Enhanced work only.

I would like to urge you to consider creating smaller Astropulse work assignments, if possible. There seems to be a lot of posts indicating discontent with the multi-hundred hours of AP assignments. I, for one, have decided that I no longer want to have any of my PCs running these assignments since that take so long and the odds of receiving no credit is so high. My other choice is to discontinue running SETI altogether, which I did for about two months anyway, while waiting for solutions to the long-running assignments to be posted.

Smaller AP assignments would at least give the perception that some work has been achieved, and that progress is being made.

Unfortunately, they are as small as they can get.
