and now in boinc stats it shows

Number of hosts (active hosts) Hidden
Compare with users with the same number of hosts n/a

and down in "last 30 days" it is as if i havent crunchd before. what gives? yeah i know i should probably post this on the boinc forums but i figured id try here first since einstein is the only project i crunch for now a days.

edit: note: [...] is edit for secruity, dunno if posting that key is a security risk or not.

seeing without seeing is something the blind learn to do, and seeing beyond vision can be a gift.

When I click on your name and then view your computers I get this screen http://einsteinathome.org/account/21894/computers
It shows 2 laptops and a desktop all connected either today or yesterday. Maybe you are just seeing a lag in the webpage updates? Or did you add more computers than that? One thing I have noticed...if you want to keep the laptop crunching for a long time, only use one core of the dual cores. Also blow it out with a can of compressed air occasionally. When I run both cores on either my new laptop, 2 years old now, or my older laptop, it died after a few months. The hard drive is not built to take the constant use. I also bought one of those laptop coolers with the fans built into it and put it under the laptop, it helps keep the heat down ALOT!!!

Not the BOINC fora, but the BOINCStat fora, especially the Stats Bug Report forum.

BOINCstats has nothing to do with the BOINC developers, it's just an external statistics site.

That's the time of last contact. Two were created on 2 Feb 2009 and one on 5 Dec 2007 (just as paul milton stated :-).

Message 90386 in response to message 90385

thanks for the tips on the laptops, i have both of them on a cooler, and replaced the stock thermal compound with articsilver ceramique(sic)

i should clarify a bit here, ive used these laptops before a few years ago, but we did not have central ac or window shakers at the time so when summer came along i had to stop, however i did not detach, some where along the line i must have deleted the computers from my account here on boinc. we moved a few months ago so i desided to put um back on einstein.

this is obviously not a bug in boinc or with einstein so ill post over on boincstats. thank yall :)
