It would be a great idea to be able to rename computers in the "my computers" screen, just for self-reference. Some times, it gets a bit difficult to manage the list...

The name of the computer is set by the OS you use and only read by BOINC.
So if you want to change the name of your computer, you have to do that locally. In Windows, go Control Panel->System->Network Identification->Properties.

I am aware of that. It's just that it is difficult to change the names according to a unified scene, since names are set according to LAN needs. I have multiple LANs with PC1-PC2 names. It would be a nice idea IMHO to be able to rename the computers inside BOINC.
