Is it possible to give priority to Astropulse WU and if it is no work available, to get Seti WU?
If yes how ???
I repeat : to get as much as possible Astropulse WU and if no any available, to continue with SETI.
Best regards

Fairly simple :-
On your "account" web page, go to the "preferences for this project" page, then "edit preferences" (I'll assume you are going to set the "default" set for now)
Next check "Run only selected applications - Astropulse"
Uncheck "Run only selected applications - SETI@Home V8"
and check "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?"
Finally press the "Update" button", sit back and allow the update to take hold Normally this takes effect within a day. The time can be as little as a few minutes, but when the servers are playing up it may take longer (and the servers are playing up just now).

Hello Rob. Tks for clear and fast answer.
I found this option. But I want to do it for only one of my computer. Not for all. The option you wrote seem to be applicable for all !?

Fairly simple, you have to "move" the computer to one of the other locations.
Go to the web page for that computer, then to the "details page", at the very bottom you will see a box labeled "location", scroll this to one of the other locations (these are virtual locations, not real ones so don't worry about the names)
Hit the "update" button next to the box.
Now go through the process I described yesterday, but instead of doing it for "default" go to the location you've just selected and set that up as before.

Over the years I've found this to be of use when doing the very thing you are trying to do on one computer.
