I think my BOINC manager isn't working. Attached to SETI@home only.

And what leads you to that assumption? ;-)

Welcome Stephen,
Your manager is working fine. The work units you have are Astropulse. They take a long time to finish. You should be seeing some progress by now. The one you gave up on and aborted looked like it was moving along ok.

How do I acquire a task? I rarely use BOINC, and I don't have time to play around with it. I gave an Update command, but received zero new tasks from the scheduler. What do I do?

Don't run Astropulse, for one. Especially not when you don't run BOINC as much.
Disable getting AP tasks this way:

-> Your Account
-> Project resource share and preferences
-> Edit Preferences
-> Set the check marks on the following as indicated:
-- SETI@home Enhanced ON
-- Astropulse OFF
-- Astropulse v5 OFF
-- If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? OFF
-- Use Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) if available: OFF
-- Use Central Processing Unit (CPU): ON
-> Update preferences (with the button at the bottom of the page here).
-> Open BOINC Manager
-> Advanced view
-> Projects tab
-> Click on Seti to select it
-> Click the Update button

This way you only get Seti Enhanced, which you should (hopefully) be able to finish before its deadline.

And my question from April 16 was meant seriously, despite the emoticon. If you don't tell us what you see (error messages, log entries) we cannot tell you what to do to alleviate your problems.

I followed your instructions exactly as written.

Thank you for your help.

However, when I finally reached the step for updating SETI for a new task, I received zero new tasks from the scheduler (again).

Let me know how to fix this.

Here's a screen shot taken after I adjusted the settings:

you aren't very lucky. It appears from reading on the Numbers crunching threads, that there is a problem with WU production. Keep at it and you should get something sooner or later

Please increase the amount of disk-space BOINC is allowed to use...

When you say, keep at it, what exactly do you mean?

Should I continue to update the SETI@home project?

Yes - or, even better, let BOINC do the polling for you. It will happen in increasing time steps.

[edit] You could also attach to another project (Einstein@home also uses Arecibo data, for other purposes though).[/edit]

If you mean continuously pressing the Update button in BOINC Manager, then no. Don't keep pressing the button as that causes extra stress on the servers. The new perferences will be downloaded automatically when your client contacts the servers naturally.

I have attached to Einstein@home project, and it appears to be working smoothly :-)

SETI@home is still not working, however :-(
