hi forum, i'm new to boinc(i have it for like 5 days),

i have a question regardin multi-threaded tasks, i saw that AQUA@home has those kind of tasks but that is discontinued right?. So i kept searching for such a project, then i found it: Milkyway@home. Only problem here is that i have never seen a multi-threaded task from Milkyway@home (i know how bonic works!, and i know how to add projects and stuff!) but i have 3 pc's(only one of them is a personal SERVER, it has 4CPU's!(8threads), i want to use that power for multi-threaded tasks... So my question is, how do i get boinc to accept only milkyway@home tasks that are multi-threaded

thx

Since Milkyway has no way to set which applications you want to run, they'll get onto your system automatically. They're the N-Body tasks, recognizable by the (mt) addition in the name, but I can tell you that they don't run for long. 3 to 9 seconds at most on my i3-530 (2+2).

So in their case, you can't, unless you want to spend time on setting up an anonymous platform file. But then you have the problem that their N-Body tasks aren't around much. They only come in batches.

Oh, so you can. Must be a new addition then, since their server update a week or what back. Ok, thanks for that.
