I'm running SETI on two computers, one a MacBook Pro and the other an iMac. Both are running Mavericks, yet after installing the SETI software, I see two different clients. On the MacBook Pro I have a BOINC manager that looks like this
.

On the iMac it looks like this
.

Can someone explain to me why this happens and how to unify the interfaces. (OK, OK, I'm neurotic, but it doesn't make sense to me that they'd be different.)

Lastly, what is the red circle with the white line indicating in the MBP client at the top dropdown. It would seem to indicate something is wrong rather than the client is paused.

Thanks!

The top one is the Simple View, the bottom one is the advanced view. Both are included in the app.

Look under the view menu to change to your preferred version.

That is the indication that the task is paused, it shows the same on my Windows 7 computer.
