I have two quad core machines both running Climate prediction and Cosmology at home. BOINC does not seem to recognise that I want to share between the two and at best I can only have one Cosmology at home running, with 3 Climate Predictions.
What settings do I have to do to convince it to download more Cosmology at home.

Here\'s the cheap workaround that I always use. Set all your projects to no new tasks except for Cosmology. If you want Cosmology WU\'s right away, slowly start suspending your CDPN tasks one at a time until your computer sends out a request for Cosmology WU\'s (it usually only takes suspending one CDPN task to do the job). If you are willing to wait, let the CDPN tasks finish up on their own and your computer will start sending out calls for Cosmology work (this may take a while with CDPN tasks, though). Crunch away. This method works whenever you want to focus only on certain projects and let others idle for the moment (such as if you want to participate in a primegrid challenge). There are probably numerous solutions out there, but I find this one to be the easiest.
