Please add a Host deletion option to your Compueter management screen next to the Merge function. I have older slower systems that will never be able to be one of the first two systems to respond for a distributed work unit. Since they will never receive credit for work unit being the third to respond I want to remove them from the project. I am aware that I can detach, but I also want to remove from your database.

Elsewise consider granting credit for the first three valid responses. This would keep three systems working in the event one fails to respond or has a local problem.

Thanks
Bill

There should be a deletion option for your computers (I have it available for mine). If you have any workunits listed against the host you might have to wait for them to be purged from the database.

When you say computer management screen, do you mean the Your computers page, or the Computer summary page. If it is the Your computers page, click on the ID of the computer you want to delete, and the option should be at the bottom of the page.
