Ok - I just added the other computer on my home network to my SAH Boinc account. When I went to view the computer thru Boinc the description of its processor is -for lack of a better word- "mangled."

Take a look at what it shows for the CPU type...anyone else experience this? Is there a prob on my end or does BOINC just not recognize this kind of AMD?

Yeah - built it meself from vacuum tubes and telephone wires. Couldn't figure out what to call it so I went with that. Odd name huh? Don't know why it shows up as that...very strange.

That is indeed very strange. What is the processor anyway? Maybe somebody else has the same type and can tell you if there's was identified correctly?
