Hi!

I'd like to run tasks from a specific project, until they're ran out.
Then I'd like to load tasks from a second project, until they're out of tasks.
And so on...

How can I do this?

Not sure if what you are asking for is possible. You can have one project as your main one and an other or others as backup by giving your main one a high resource share. (You do this on individual project's website.) Set the backup ones to a zero resource share and they will only get work if your main project has none.

This can be done with boinccmd and bash script running in the background but it is not worth the effort.

As it stands BOINC is designed to run tasks in the sequence received. To do what you are asking would you to require set "no new tasks" on all the projects you are engaged in apart from the one that you want to run, and cycle through them in turn. Which sounds like a lot of work if you have doing work for several projects.
