Message 8582 - Posted: 3 Feb 2005, 21:43:26 UTC

Viewing my computers through my Profile I see two, when in fact there is only one. This is probably because I went off line from Boinc for several months and then started up again.
When I try to merge these two nothing happens. The merge page comes up with no computers shown to check off.
Need I worry?

The computers have different CPU types, which might make it impossible to merge them. If they can be merged the option would be available from your page for host id 97160.

If your new host id was created using 4.19 I suspect that could be the reason - the CPU type identification string stored by BOINC has changed from the one used in 4.13 :(

Which makes me wonder in general what use this merging stuff has? I have some models and started them on computer X but now they run on Y still with that inaccurate setting from X. All these accounts stats appear to me as flawed and therefore rather useless. Am I wrong?

Considering my computer hasn't changed it's weird how it reads two different ones!
