I signed up for both projects S@H and predictor.
I see plenty of activity for predictor, but none for S@H. On the project screen both show at 50% but there are no work units for S@H and the disk usage for S@H is 0%.
Also, my S@H1 wont log in. I assume it is because I am transfered to BOINC.
Thanks

If S@H is down when BOINC asks for more work, your cache will be filled with P@H. Just give it some time, and you'll get some work from S@H.

And no, running BOINC won't affect your S@H classic account.

I had the same problem. My cache was filled with F@H WU's even though most of the time S@H was up during the refill. I had to detach from S@H then re-attach it. I now have S@H wu's, but no F@H wu's. I could never get 2 projects correct. That is even with 1% F@H, 99% S@H.

BOINC fills the queue from the project that is farthest behind when it gets low. It then works them from the closest deadline. It does not do time slicing (at least not yet).
