I just thought cool. I somehow didn't realize that you could easily set the number of threads for a WW CPU task.
I disabled the CPU for each computer so the 321 tasks could run out.
I also changed from 321 to WW and changed the number of threads.
I now have so many WW GPU tasks downloaded it is crazy.
Does this mean I have to use the 'only 2 tasks at once' setting?
Why would I get so many WW GPU tasks?

There could be one explanation, but it still doesn't make sense.
I have '2 days work' set.
But I have resource share zero (using Boinc 7.14.2)
Interesting.
I will change the setting to zero days and see if it still happens.

I shouldn't have gotten so excited.
I have about 80 'phantom' WW tasks.
I happened to notice just after I changed the CPU settings.

Someone could probably even delete this thread.
Unless it is useful to show that with the wrong timing, reality can go out the window.

And after the excitement - it isn't worth running - it will take 5 hours.
Back to 321.
