Tonight when I saw that I had got a LHC WU, lo and behold, I went to check up on my account page, just to check out things, as I haven't crunched LHC for a long time.

Then I noticed that my computer had spawned itself to multiple instances, so I had to merge three times before I got back to my one and only computer.

I also noticed that I had failed downloading some WU's the other day, which I never noticed that day, so maybe all the failed downloads have created a new computer each time?

So please check your computers and see if yours have been spawned also.

It didn't happen to me. But I wouldn't mind an extra machine :-) (if only it was a real one and not some bug in the server...)

But, Fuzzy, look at it from the bright side: you actually got some work! And I hope for your sake you got more than one unit, 'cause I know what a pain it is to constantly miss out.

Happy crunching!

Good 2cu again :)

btw you probably only needed to merge once, as you can merge more than two computers together at one time. (maybe that is what you meant?) Best plan is to click on the one that has the highest number, and then click merge, then tick all the other computers that match it.

The only time this does not work is if one of the ghost machines has some ghost work still listed againat it. (then sometimes merge is allowed, sometimes not - I have not worked out why). If that happens then you need to wait for the work to be deleted before you can merge that ghost host.

and finally, it is nearly Halloween. Look out for ghost wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Hi River~~!

Yes, long time no see. :-) I'm mostly at AstroPulse/Beta at the moment.

River~~, I had three full pages of computers! First, I went to the bottom of the page and clicked "select all", and then merge, and I did this three times before I ended up with my one and real computer! There were many! I don't know how many because when I saw that long list of ghost computers, I went imidiatly to the merge page. And as said, I clicked "select all" three times!

Yes, it's the time of the year when you don't want to buy on ebay!
