Hello! I just started running the SETI@HOME software again after many years of being offline. I started a new account because I lost all my old information but did a search on my name thinking SETI@HOME might have it listed anyway after searching my name another person with my same last name came up under my search with my full name. My last name and his are the same but his first name is different. When I did a search using only my last name his sight came up with my full name listed! No big deal but just a little strange! Give me your thoughts!

Accounts use the email address as the unique identifier, not the name.

According to Giorgo of the Ancient Astronaut Theorists I do not help with tech questions via private message. He's right: please use the forums for that.
