does the virtual display only show the colored bars, or does the signal response have an audio notification when a signal is received?

I just read the "technical" points of the signals and stuff, and the "what if". Who calculated the number of calculations my computer will do? 2.8 - 3 trillion?

One of your tasks:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5834075
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=1819611514

Shows:
Flopcounter: 31666539299162.027000

which is 31 666 539 299 162 = 31 trillion Floating Point Operations.

This is normal for today's (last ~2 years) tasks - they are more deeply analyzed than in Classic times (~10 years ago).
