This is somewhat of a double post from my other thread, but I'm not sure it's going to get trouble shooting attention there -

Today I added another Raspberry Pi to the first one I've had running. Eventually I'll have four. Yes I have adequate cooling. The first one Pi-1 completes tasks in about 8 - 9 hours.

The host name is Pi-2 (the first one I have is Pi-1). When I added Pi-2 through the BOINC manager for the first time today, I looked at my computer list, and the Seti website showed all my computers, except it no longer showed Pi-1 at all - just the new Pi-2 and my normal computers. I do not know why it no longer showed Pi-1, because it was still working on tasks and has returned tasks. All I did was to add a new Pi with a distinct new host name. I went to the Projects tab in BOINC for both computers and made each one "Update" the project. Then the Seti website showed both Pi-1 and Pi-2.

Now Pi-1 - shows all it's tasks, both completed and in-progress, but Pi-2 shows no tasks at all, but it is currently happily working on 3 tasks. It should be showing in-progress tasks. Also, Pi-1 shows 3 abandoned tasks in it's listing for May 9 (today). I never abandoned any tasks today (or for that matter ever that I remember) for any computer.

Does what happened today with these Pis make any sense to anyone? I wonder if the Seti software that adds computers has a weird bug?
I'm putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all, I think, that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Update -

It looks like the "Abandoned " tasks shown under Pi-1 were the three that were running on Pi-2, even though it didn't ever show them being assigned to Pi-2. Now Pi-2 has three new tasks to run. It just uploaded one of the mystery tasks but where did it go? I can't find it in the list of tasks. It's about ready to upload the other two also.

Very strange.
