I've had several computers (Macs and PCs) doing WUs for the past few years, but this one has me stumped. (I know... it's probably something really simple and stupid, but it's not occurring to me, so any help you can throw my way will be appreciated).

I just added another machine (Mac g5) and downloaded BOINC manager to it, and got it working on a few WUs. When I went to set my preferences on that machine, it seems to go fine, but when I went to the "Your Computers" list - it shows up, but when I click on it, it says "Can't find computer". When BOINC starts up, it seems to recognize the computer id number, but I can't get to it back on the servers.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

The replica server has fallen behind. This will prevent people from seeing things in their account until it has caught up.

Great, thanks for the update. It's been over 24 hours, so I guess I'll give it until sometime next week before I worry about it. Just don't want to do a few dozen WUs and not get credit.

Thanks again!
