This program receives radio data from space

Question:
Where I can listen that voice that you get from those telescopes pointing to space?

Another question: When program says packet is ready to report does it do that automatically?

Geez. Less then 1 hour of processor time used and already 2 packets processed. This program is fast to use.

One more question: If that red bar is flat on Computing Fast Fourier Transform screen does that mean that no significant signal is received?

Where I can listen that voice ...

There is external program (SETIspirit) to listen "that voice" but you'll be annoyed in a few minutes (the sound is not voice but noise)

Yes (in a few minutes to a few hours)


If that red bar is flat ...

http://seticlassic.ssl.berkeley.edu/about_seti/about_seti_at_home_1.html
http://seticlassic.ssl.berkeley.edu/screensaver/index.html

The info/pictures are old (written years ago) but the principles are almost the same.
The screensaver don't compute - it only shows very small part of the analysis.
The SETI@home screensaver works only on CPU tasks. (GPU applications don't have screensaver part/exe)

Thanks for info. I do only CPU tasks because my GPU is always in use when my computer is on.

You have some CUDA tasks "Completed and validated":
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7765726&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=

And I don't understand why you needed/wanted to abort some of them:

With that SetiSpirit tool I found a sector on sky which is full of signals. Serpens Sector packet contained 7 spikes and 2 Gaussians. Sector Ophiuchus packet contained 4 spikes and 3 triplets. Those two sectors seems to be active.

The 'SETI@home science database' (size > 10 TB - I don't remember more precisely)
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_status.html

... contains Billions of "signals" found so far by all participants
(they still wait to be re-analysed - compared against each other for repeatability on different observations)
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sci_status.html

SetiSpirit shows only your tasks.
Total Workunits processed (till 4 Nov 2014 as shown on the 'Science status page') 1,756,367,442


You didn't read (at full) the links I posted:
"What If My Computer Discovers E.T.? What happens?":

You obviously don't want to get CUDA (NVIDIA GPU) tasks - you Abort them en masse:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7765726&offset=0&show_names=0&state=6&appid=

Better:
Go to your SETI@home preferences

... and un-check 'Use NVIDIA GPU'

(use 'Edit preferences' at bottom)


There are also Settings to make the GPU compute only when you don't use the computer (if that is what you want):
Computing preferences

I already disabled that CUDA option on preferences. I looked at your links: WHOA. That is a lot of data to process. So it is gonna take lot of time to get confirmation.
