Go to "your account", then press SIXTRACK-settings (translated from my danish version). There you should have a setting called: hould SIXTRACK show your computers on its web site? Choose "NO". Then it should not show your hosts.

Although you are perfectly at liberty to hide your computer details, please pause and consider for a second before you do so.

Look at Uffe's computers or my computers. You will see that very much less detail is shown, compared to what is available when you look at your own computer. That automatic removal of detail may be enough to satisfy your perfectly understandable desire for privacy.

If at any point in the future you encounter difficulties running LHC, you are always welcome to ask for help (though the Number Crunching forum is the traditional place to do this). It greatly helps people trying to assist you if we can find your computers, and view details of the tasks you have processed - all of this is lost if you hide your computer entirely from other participants.
