I see that the way you set Resource Share is not in the BOINC client but on each project's web site. But that means the settings are global. But say I have one computer I want to give high priority to Project A and low to Project B, so B essentially runs when there's no A work. But on a different computer I want to do normal use of Project B? Is this something you can do easily?

You can do it by location - setting different computers to home, work or school/college - I can't remember what the last one is. You still only have three different options however so I don't know an answer for more than three computers.

Make that four. The third one is 'school', but there's also a case 0 of 'default' or '---'.

Thanks Richard, I have never had more than 3 physical computers and while both my current machines at present both show as two separate machines, one running some version of windows and one running Linux, the former actually running under WINE, at the moment all my machines are running as defaults so I haven't had reason to dig deeply into this.
