hey all new here and had a quick question.
in the boinc manager after clicking show graphics i get a 3d image and at the top left it says overall percentage 11% or something like that. however if i leave it for a few minutes and let the screensaver popup it says overall 5%

so the question is
is this 2 separate projects or is it restarting in between or something?

i think ive figured it out looks like im running four projects due to a quad core processor so i think the screen saver is showing the overall percent or just showing a different project then i was seeing at first

The BOINC screen saver rotates between tasks.
