Hi. After a 5 year hiatus I'm once again doing SETI here. I'm also doing Einstein and Milky Way. How can I find out what exactly a task I am running is doing? Right now, e.g., I'm running my first Astropulse which seems to be almost mystical. I've tried looking around but can't seem to find it on the specific task pages or elsewhere. Thanks, Jim.

What do you mean by "specific task pages"?

Your tasks are visible here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5342001&offset=0&show_names=1&state=0

And you can see them in Tasks tab of BOINC Manager (switch it to Advanced mode)

See also Astropulse FAQ:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ap_faq.php

On your CPU
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
an Astropulse task will take about 50-60 hours (just my "intuitive" guess)

I am referring to what I see when I click on a task, e.g. SETI, and the Commands and Websites appear in the left hand column. I couldn't find what I was looking for there. Your Astropulse FAQ is what I was looking for. Hoping this doesn't sound like a stupid question, but how did you know to look specifically for that? I'm assuming that another task name followed by FAQ should give such a result as Astropulse FAQ.

To see your computers here:
click on ACCOUNT (at top-right)

In the middle of the page:
Computers on this account View
(you can see more about your computers than anyone else, e.g. the IP address)

After clicking View there you will see the Tasks link (click on it)

To see the particular (Completed) task click on the leftmost link in the
first column (Task ID/Task name)


Or in BOINC Manager click button (at the left) [Your account] or [Your computers]

The pages opened by the "at the left" buttons are not "specific task pages" - they are Project specific

_____

On the home page here you can see (at the top):

ABOUT
About SETI@home
About Astropulse
Science newsletters
Technical news
Server status
Science status

("About Astropulse" is this "Astropulse FAQ" you already read)

Thanks. This gives me lots of stuff to look through. Jim
