Hallo! Recently I have reinstalled the OS en one of my machines, and of course, the BOINC programms too. Now, when I read the statistics this machine appears twice in, the older and the new installed ones. I remember that in earlier times there was a button called "merge" or something else at the end of the computers list, but now it is no more there. I saw accidentally this button in some place no too long ago, but now I can't find it.
Somebody could tell me how should I do to merge two similar (In fact, the same) machines?
Thank you in advance!

Richard,
Yes, the button still exists.

Try click this link and follow the instructions on the page;
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/merge_by_name.php

Or you could visit each computer individually by visiting the following page and clicking the word "Details" beside that computer;
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php
Then the "Merge" button also appears on the bottom of that page!

For you Richard,
This computer; http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6718757
And this one; http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6129492
Are the same computer. You should see the "Merge" button on the bottom of either page.

John.
