er, if I have more than one project, how can I change the 'Resource share' shown under the 'Project' tab of BOINC Manager

Thanks

Go to the project's home page -> Your Account -> View or Edit 'whatever'@home Preferences -> Edit 'whatever'@home preferences -> Update preferences -> Use the update button in BOINC mgr for that project.

Sounds complicated, but really easy once you've done it once :)

Or if you use Boincstats, just go via BAM.

I've found it a bit hit or miss whether different projects accept resource share instructions from BAM/Boincstats some do and some don't (and I suspect other account managers are the same) and it takes a day or so to find out either way. going direct to the projects' your account/project preferences page gives certainty that it'll take.
it's a slight pity as it would be nice to do it seemlessly from a single screen over a number of projects.

The only project that doesn't work well for me through BAM is WCG. Everything else appears to work quite well and instantly.

In my experience, WCG doesn't play nice with BAM!, and CPDN isn't showing the correct resource share either. Another issue I have using BAM! is that with Rosetta you can set the length of WU, but if you change the resource share via BAM! it will reset the WU length preference to default. Also, BAM! will override your resource share that you set at the individual project's website, if this is a problem then that will basically defeat the purpose of using BAM!.
