Maybe someone answered this before, but why is it this project won't send out more than 1 WU at a time? You would think we could crunch a ton of WU's, since it's not CPU-intensive. Anyone know why-? :)

It would be worthless to run more than ONE task per PC at at time for this NCI project.

FROM THE HOME PAGE OF THE PROJECT https://wuprop.boinc-af.org:

About WUProp@Home

WUProp@home is a non-intensive project that uses Internet-connected computers to collect workunits properties of BOINC projects such as computation time, memory requirements, checkpointing interval or report limit.

The project collects info on how BOINC projects run on different OS/processor/etc systems. You'd just be collecting the same data. The project is not about the credit received per task. And if you try running more than 1 client/WUProp task your hosts will get banned.
