Hrm...it gets more interesting.
Final goofy thing - looking at the two URLs you posted above, the "new" Thumper has this for the user name search 37726&pname=JFSxbwh%40vmwheEvez%2EDwn while the "old" Thumper has 37726&username=Thumper. Go figure.
You got it backwards. The "old" Thumper is the one with the weird string, probably because of the "@overclock.net" thing.
I told you I break software.
So, here is my plan, and you tell me what you think. LOL
Since the stats for my ranking here are being pulled from the "new" Thumper (the one without the funny string of symbols), I am going to go home and completely wipe Folding@home from my drive. Then I will re-install 2 consoles and configure them for the correct name of just "Thumper" for our team and I will fold under that name for ranking.
The WUs I completed under the messed up Thumper will be lost to me for ranking, but since the research was completed (the most important part) and the points attributed to our team anyway, I am not worried about it.
Funy thing is I just uploaded another one last night under the messed up Thumper by loading the work folder on my flash drive, dumping it onto my laptop and using the open wireless hotspot in my neighborhood to upload to the site LOL
Which reminds me, time to order my internet Self Install kit from Comcast.
