Who do I need to contact to merge two computers together but with different names? They are the same computer I just renamed it when I created my network and now I have two computer ID's. If it helps I need computer 17687 merged into 49261

The name of the computer shouldn't matter. The CPU description and the OS should match, then you can merge these computers all by yourself. Go to Your Account, Computers on this account, choose any of the hostIDs, click its numerical link, scroll all the way down.

It either gives you a link to merge them, or if the old one doesn't have any results in its list anymore, it will give the option to delete as well.

I just checked and see that the descriptions of the CPU aren't the same.
On newer BOINC Server versions this isn't a problem, but Pirates uses an older version, so it may not be possible to merge the computers. You can delete the one with zero results in its list. Deleting a host doesn't do anything to your credits, they stay with you all the time.

Thanks. The thing is they are the same processor and OS. It's that now it has the x86 blah blah blah stuff on the end of the processor. I'm going to delete it anyway so thanks for the insight.
