Is there a way - or is it even possible - to change the Resource Share for a single project on a specific computer?

Perhaps through the appl_config file?

You can change the resource share via the project preferences in your account on the project's website.
For example at https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project

Associate that computer with a different venue (default, home, school or work) than your other computers and set the resource share to whatever you wish. With 4 different venues you can have 4 different resource shares.

Using the website parameters would change the resource share on all my machines, and that's one of the things I'm trying to avoid. I want to change the resource share on one project on a single machine. Is that possible?

As jglrogujgv said, you have four independent sets of website parameters at your disposal. Are you using them all already?

It is doable via the preferences page and it's easy. Not doable via app_config.xml, that's for other stuff.
When you go to the preferences page scroll down and see the links for creating additional venues (school, work and home).

Took a bit of tinkering but finally got it. Thanks to all.
