I've been running SETI since 2001, but have only recently been assigned an ASTROPULSE unit to process.
The first thing I noticed, of course, was the sheer size of the thingy. This unit is supposed to take 85 hours (as opposed to the five or six with the
ordinary SETI units).
I have been running it for the past two days, and processing seems to go VERY slowly.
(It has nothing to with my PC.)
But the thing I want to know - and I hope this doesn't sound TOO ridiculous - is this: how come the CPU time left is increasing
(It was 81 hours three hours ago - now it's 82 + hours...
And yet, the CPU time spent
P.S. Beware of going "esoteric" on me regarding this one!
