I'm now running BOINC wish S@H and climateprediction but only one of these projects seems to run at once although they both have equal priority settings. The other has a status "preempted" which changes if I right click on the other under the projects tab and choose update. This status isnt described on the BOINC GUI page. What does preempted mean...is this meant to happen?

As an aside my climate WU has downloaded a projected 584 hours of work although I set 1 day as the maximum.

The explanation of "preempted" can be found at the bottom of this page.

Crunching WU's of CPDN takes a very long time, in the order of 10-20 days depending on the speed of the CPU.
