I have some machines listed more than once, completely identical, even per the descriptions in "Computers on this account", yet I cannot merge them. I click ID#, click Merge this computer, and then it lists no computers to list.

Can this functionality please be turned on?

Even better would be to also upgrade it to the latest version. The latest version will allow merging even if the stuff after CPU type is slightly different (like [x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 6]). During some of the recent changes to the BOINC client, those fields changed, and created duplicate "similar" machines on some projects, this one included.

We will be updating the web site software at some point, and then you can try to merge them again. Watch for an annoucement. I would like to know that it works. Thanks for noting it for the log.

The plan though is to first update just the server daemons to see if recent changes to the feeder reduce the database load. That is easier to do than updating the whole web site. We have so many custom changes on the web site that I have to go through them and submit them for consideration for inclusion in BOINC proper, or at least archive them. We can't just update to the latest version of BOINC, or we'll loose some good stuff.

And while this needs to get done, it's the less interesting part of the process. And then there are things to do at work, and it's summer... you get the idea. But we will get there eventually.

Alas, no. I still intend to do this, but it now looks like it will have to wait at least until after Supercomputing 2007, in mid November. Thank you though for the reminder/check.

I think we are getting closer. The problem is that we have a few key web pages which have been customized, while the BOINC code has evolved over time, and so it will take more than trivial effort to get the two lined up (ideally the customized pages updated to match where BOINC is now). The good news is that I think I'm getting to where I'll be able to devote some time to this. We may just have to bite the bullet and update to "vanilla" BOINC, then "fix" everything that's "broken" after that.

In any case, I appreciate the reminder.
