I think if there were some interesting 3rd party apps available and being promoted it might get more people interested.

BoincTasks (Fred) just created a 3rd party forum and allowed me to promote several performance tools. There is a description of the program here and the sources and executables are at github

The program BThistoryReader works only with BoincTasks, using C# and runs only on windows. The program HostProjectStats creates a web based performance tool that runs using any browser and access project data on the web. That page is hosted (by me) here These program were built with VS2017

Here is a sample plot of Elapsed Time for the Milkyway Separation program. This is only one feature, refer to the above link for the other things it does.

Posted same info over at https://cryptocurrencytalk.com/forum/2436-projects/
and had over 800 views in 30 hours. Normally slow board there and 800 views might take a year or more on the average
