Yep. Got a good many of those myself. Some so short they only lasted 20-30 seconds. But I guess it's something. Lmao

The mix of shorties and normal WU is entirely down to what is on the tape, which is down to what the telescope was doing at the time, over which S@H has no control.

Are all these shorties from one tape or a series of consecutive tapes? If so, could the staff jump ahead a couple of weeks or a month and split a few normal tapes, then switch back and forth between the shorties and normals?

Different tapes, and not consecutive either.

Is it possible to have the gaussian search included or implemented in the .vlar tasks?

Very short answer, No.


What would typical run times be then for any such tasks?

N/A

And since when, exactly, is it possible to look at the graphics of a task that is not running?

That thing you should really know.

Boinc Manager starts up a task, regardless of whether the task has become or is being set to 'Waiting to run' or being 'Suspended' - as long as the 'Show graphics' button has been clicked in order to get up the graphics before that, the window for that task will stay open until it becomes closed. So it goes with my system, that is.

Not more difficult than that!


I'm afraid, my graphics window closed when I suspended the task at the graphics of which I was looking. [non-SETI of course. optimised SETI apps don't have graphics]

edit: and before you start argueing, if apps are left in memory, the graphics window stays indeed open, but of course doesn't update any more.

By the way, who is supposed to be cheating in this forum? Me, you, or someone else. If I told you what I know, you would not believe me at all.


Any form of cheating should be serious. Try me .....
