SETI has two "General Prefs" options that CP does not have:

- Switch between applications every: [x minutes]
- Connect to network about every : [x days]

To make matters worse, CP has an option that SETI does not have:

- Keep enough work on disk to last between: [x and y days]

I'm not certain what the General prefs are for LHC.

These are "General" prefs, therefore the BOINC client only uses the set that was updated most recently (SETI or CP). What happens to these "other" options from the other project(s) ?

Shouldn't these "other" options be in the project-specific prefs ?

Who manages the "General prefs" ? The BOINC people or the individual projects ?

Since the BOINC dev team is the one developing these features, the S@H website will always be the most current. It just takes time for the individual projects to implement the changes to their sites.
