Thanks for your reply, Joseph. Umm.... I'm going to need a bit of clarification, if you'll bear with me...
First, there are no errors listed at all. Milkyway is plowing ahead with great gusto, completing "0.92CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU" tasks in 11 minutes 30 secs.

At this moment, there is a 6 CPU task running, and the aforementioned GPU task - both from Milkyway.

The WCG task uses regular processor cores, so I see no reason why the regular core tasks from Milkyway should swap out to each othe revery hour; otherwise how would I get WCG to ever run ?

I'm confused about setting "0.0" share. how does that result in any activity?

I've been running Boinc for years, but his whole thing makes no sense to me.

I have World Community Grid tasks that are passing their due date, yet MilkyWay is hogging processor time when its projects aren't due for another five days. There hasn't been a task switch for twenty four hours (set for 60 minutes)
What's going on?

My event log says:
1/16/2015 4:28:31 PM | rosetta@home | Requesting new tasks for AMD/ATI GPU
1/16/2015 4:28:32 PM | | App version needs OpenCL but GPU doesn't support it
1/16/2015 4:28:32 PM | Milkyway@Home | [error] App version uses non-existent ATI GPU

So it seems my app is requesting tasks for a GPU I appear not to have? Why would that be?
I actually have a Radeon 4800, is that not supported?
