Is there any way I can run 2 sixtracks at once?

Yes, if you have a dual core CPU, or admit hyperthreading if you have a single core CPU.

Of course that\'s assuming you can get multiple WUs from the server. I have a dual core, and two quad cores, but am lucky to get just one WU at a time. This maybe because of my refusal to downgrade BOINC though.

I am running BOINC 5.10.45 on an AMD Opteron 1210 dual core with Linux and I used to get three or four LHC WUs at the same tine. I have put a no more work stop on LHC because twice it crashed my boinc client and stopped all my 5 other BOINC applications. But LHC WUs used to run a very short time compared to the others.
