Dear forum,

Something later I have asked a question about calculation of maximal
subgroups of SymmetricGroup(9).
Thank you very much for those who reply, in particular to Alexander Hulpke,
Derek Holt, Mikhail Klin and Vitaliy Mysovskikh. Recently I run calculation
of MaximalSubgroups(SymmetricGroup(9)) using the list of its perfect
subgroups. This calculation on Pentium-166 MMX with RAM 32 Mb under Linux
Red Hat 5.2 with swap partition 64 Mb was very-very long and did not
finished within after 11 hours. Then the "top" and "ps" commands reported
that CPU time was only 90 minutes, so much time was wasted to swapping.
After that it was terminated. That's why I came to the following questions.

1. Is there a way in GAP to generate sound signal ?
When you are involved in long-time calculations, it would be useful to
generate beep when they are done.

2. Is there a way to download my program to the certain server somewhere,
run it on that server, and after certain period of time connect again and
get log file from the server ?

3. And the last related problem: whether somebody already have checked that
S_165 contains the maximal subgroup isomorphic to S_11, which is coming from
the action on unordered triples ?

Sincerely yours,
