I seen something on TV about seti@home and the astropulse thing, I installed Boinc on my PC and joined seti@home and seti@homeAstropulse, But when the screen saver comes up it says no tasks is running and Boinc says its downloading work but its been like that for a long time now, almost a hour. Oh on Boinc it only shows that Seti@home is on it but the astropulse is not on there, I have no clue what im doing so any help would be great
Astropulse is just a form of looking for the aliens. Whereas the SetiEnhanced Mulitbeam tasks can be compared to listening to AM or FM radio, the Astropulse tasks can be compared to listening over broadband internet, streamed MP3.
That things are coming in so slow around here, is because Seti only has a 100Mbit connection, which is saturated most days of the week due to the sheer amount of computers asking for work, getting work and uploading/reporting results. It happens to everyone all over the globe.
