Thanks for the tip, John McLeod VII.
I tried renaming before, but it didn't work at that time. :(
It refused to merge by saying "Host xxxxxx has overlapping lifetime", then. :)
Since it's been quite a while, I'll give it another try. :)
Wish you a wonderful weekend.

Thanks mo.v for the prompt reply.
Sorry that I hide my computers... nothing very particular but for some security reasons from my ISP. :)
I'm quite familiar with SETI and BOINC, however, I wondered if there is a trick to merge any two computers of my choice. I guess not...
Thanks again and wish you the best.

I recently swap HDDs from a "Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz" computer with a "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz". Just because, I didn't want to reinstall all the softwares and to copy all the data. Both the computers have run SETI/BOINC. After the swap, the computer with "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz" cannot be merged with the older results/host (while the other computer had no problem in merging the results from those ran before the swap). Is there any quick and easy way to merge the results from the same computer (with two different setup - mainly a new HDD)?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Thanks a lot for the tip.
All the best,

Well, I can confirm that these settings doesn't for the home/school/work venues. However, I was able to change these settings for the primary (default) preference. So here are some workarounds you might want to try:

- First, make sure that BOINC isn't set to run always (can be checked in Advanced View, menu Activity, item "run based on preferences" should be checked)
- If you are using BOINC version 5.10.x (5.8.x should also work), you can set up local per-computer-preferences. These can be set up in (Advanced View) -> menu "Advanced" -> "Preferences...". Keep in mind that by using them you must adjust all settings here (Disk usage / Network usage) according to your needs.
- If only one host is affected, set this hosts venue to "---" (that is "none"), so it should use the primary/default setting (which should work as mentioned above) instead
- If you are running other projects too, try to set up a venue on their web side so BOINC uses this instead of the Seti settings (for the general preferences always the most recent set will be taken)

Hope this helps
Andy

I also have problems in setting the preferences on the following two settings... These are the only reason why I have my own different preference settings.
- Suspend work while computer is on battery power?
- Suspend work while computer is in use?
6) Questions and Answers : Preferences : How to Change Team Name (Message 176636)

If you are the Team Founder: Go to Your Account, scroll down to where it says Team.
You have management functions here, click that link.
Then click Edit Team Info.
You can change the team name, link, etc. now.

There happened to be the same name that I wanted to change... That was why. Thanks a lot anyway. :)
