Dear all, I've lost the credit from my previous years' running BIONC. On checking, it appears that I have multiple computers (I don't) on the system, and wondered what might be happening?

One of the computers listed in my "Your Computers" section of my preferences on the Seti At Home site has all the credits, but it seems each time I update BIONC it adds the (same) computer as a new one, so there are now four computers listed for my single one running BIONC.

Any have any ideas what might be going on? I'm mystified. Thanks in advance.

Doug.

That might be a problem with your BOINC version. I seem to remember that some MAC version did exactly that.

Try to merge the different incarnations of your computer. There's a link on the host details page.
