I was thinking of having the feature to select primegrid applications for particular computers would be quite handy. I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement, or if there is a widespread desire for this. Either way - I thought I would throw the idea out there.

In my case, I notice that one of my computers rips through TPS WU's quite fast, but is horrifically slow at other things. While another computer is not so great with the TPS units, but pretty fast with other WU's (Cullen for example).

In my case, I calculate roughly a 10% change in my overall work I would be putting out by being able to select the exact tasks depending upon the computer specifically.

I do not know of a way to set up computer specific tasks...but there is a work around using 3 groups. You can set up different venues (locations: home, work, school).

Go to your PrimeGrid preferences page and set up the sub-projects for the different locations. Then go to your computers and assign them to one of the three locations.

In your case, you could set your home location to run only TPS WU's. Then assign all the computers that you only want to run TPS to the home location.

Repeat with work and school and assign your other computers accordingly.

I didn't realize that you could do it in this manner. Thanks greatly for letting me know!
