I just had a couple of high priority tasks preempt the tasks my computer was working on. This is the 1st time it's happened to me and was wondering what it was about.

BOINC will try to get all work in before the deadline. High priority tasks are just normal tasks, but with BOINC in a sort of panic mode, in which it will try to get those tasks as well as all the others in cache in, before their various deadlines.

Thanks for the info. I was kind of hoping it might have been something closer to ET. Oh well, all is good.
