Message 90405 - Posted: 21 Feb 2019, 20:30:00 UTC

Did an advanced search on 'anonymous' and, surprisingly, didn't find a post on this issue.

My preferences are set to not to show my computers to other users.

When I go to the account section and show my computers I see the list with their ID's and can look at tasks from there; so that functions as expected.

The issue is that I want to look at the 'tasks' display screen and see 'in process' list then click on the machine ID and figure out which of the 30+ machines have active tasks.

When I click on the ID it takes me to a web page showing an anonymous computer statistics and at the upper right hand corner has the controls for me to Sign Up or Login. Clicking 'Login' gives the error that I am already logged in.

So effectively, my own computer is made anonymous to me and since 24 of the machines have identical CPU, OS and RAM it's impossible to tell which one from characteristics.

Not had this issue on 25+ other project sites with similar (or identical) preference settings.

I see your point. That is rather odd. I will bring this up with DK.

Meanwhile, I seem to have found a workaround. If you click from a task through to the assigned host, if you insert "/rosetta" into the URL, and are signed in to the website, it will display the host with the host names and other private information that only the owner of the host can see.

Example, the tasks page brings you here when you click the host ID:
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/show_host_detail.php?hostid=xxxxxxx
change the URL in your browser to:
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/show_host_detail.php?hostid=xxxxxxx

Thanks,

each machine has several days of work now and, if there are any invalids or errors, this'll help me identify the machine.

If that's all it takes then the HTML fix could be simple.

It has been fixed for me already few hours ago, at least I don't find any pages anymore where I'm not logged in. Eventually you have to reload the pages, which you have opened before they fixed it.

It worked after I posted my message.
Just didn't modify the message to indicate this.

Thanks for the quick fix.
