I removed it from the todo list.
You can choose darker colors by changing the text color from black to e.g. white.
Or use something that works both ways like a lighter shade of brown.
I think the project still try to honor the share % even if set to no new work.
At least I noticed it on my computers.

Updated to 7.74 that supports 32 temperature cores.

So how come it can display computer A fast, it can display computer B fast, but both together is slow?
No idea, I tested with 10.000 + tasks.

Nope, didn't work.  Boinctasks is only using a fraction of a core, and even if I pause Boinc on this machine it can't keep up.  I guess it's not a CPU power limitation, but a programming limitation :-)
The BOINC client has the transfer the data that might be a limiting factor.
BoincTasks is as fast as it can it runs on one thread for each computer and one for the display.

Already set that way I think, like this?

Yes right.

What is the filtering you speak of?
Extra-> Filter tasks on Everything checked except running

Total number of tasks displayed affects it maybe?  Two machines have over a thousand tasks (small Primegrid ones).  And those seem to make it slower, although they're the fastest machines, and one is this local one.
1000 should do that, you didn't disable filtering.
Best to close the window, because it will use resources when you display that many tasks.

But I can't get it to update fast like it used to.  I put the update speed (settings, view, refresh rate) on manual, but anything under 4 seconds it just stays at 4 seconds.  I used to have it on 1 second.  I have a feeling I asked you this a long time ago and I had to override something somewhere.
That should be it.
The counter on the bottom should say Updating in ...
A computer that responses slow might be the cause.

There is another option, BoincTasks JS that you could try, it should take over all computer settings.
You can run both programs at the same time, just to try it out.
It's in the Microsoft store.

I have a desktop windows 11 pc (with Boinctasks running) and a server running linux with boinc on doncker.

Boinctasks can connect to server but because desktop win pc is not always on, I suppose I don't get all wu loged if a wu is done on server and desktop pc (read boinctasks) is not running atm.

Is there a way to make sure boinctasks on win pc get also done wu after it starts and a wu was done on server while win pc (+boinctasks) was down? must I also use Boinctasks on server? Can I use boinctaks js?
Best to run BoincTasks on the computer that's always on. If the Windows PC isn't always on, it will surely miss wu.
BoincTasks JS is probably the best choice for a non-Windows machine.

If I change that registry entry, will all the settings be lost?
Nothing is lost as long as you don't delete that key

I have a browser/email program/whatever maximised on monitor 1, and I'm typing into it.  I have Boinctasks on another monitor, and it just becomes in focus.  It remains on the view it was on (tasks) and doesn't produce a dialog.
I tried the same thing, nothing happens on my machine, for now I have no idea.
The only thing I can think of is a corrupt registry. Close BoincTasks and open registry editor. Go to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer and rename BoincTasks to e.g. BoincTasksx and open BoincTasks again.
You can revert by closing BoincTasks, rename to original and restart BoincTasks.
What happens when you close / minimize BoincTasks.

> There isn't a problem that I'm aware of.

I'm not sure why it even has the ability to do so.  Windows shouldn't let any program do that.  Surely you can find in the program where the command is to take focus and remove it?

We are talking about hundreds of thousands of lines of code here.
I did a quick search and I can't find anything that brings the program to the foreground.
Except if you set a rule or with notices that brings the Notices tab if set.

What happens when you tell me you lose focus?
Does BoincTasks shows itself? At what window, Tasks, Notices, a Dialog?

Wish List / Re: Color for Apple M1/M2 GPU tasks

Primegrid now has apps for the Apple M1/M2 GPUs.  I have BOINCtasks set to display CPU apps in Green, and GPU apps in blue.  As you can see, the M1 GPU app is shown as green, as if BOINCtasks doesn't know that it is really a GPU app.
OK I will add it to the list, it will take a while before I will be able to pick this up.

Hi, they do detect more than 1 GPU...but only show temps from 1 GPU, one or the other.  :o

So no luck here.
In the External tab you should be able the select the source for GPU 1 and GPU 2.
