Same spelling, 2 user stats

Team 18 member "dnewman" has added some CPU's. The CPU's are now being split between 2 accounts statistically; obviously the stats should be under 1 single account.

you can search for dnewman here http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/mai ... teamnum=18 to see the different statistics.

Its a variety of machines: XP's, one Intel as well as PPCs

team member "dnewman" is still attempting to decipher which machine it is.

I am thinking there is an invisible character in one of the names.

Probably a space at the end of the UserName, or an email address (everything is truncated at @) :?

There are 4 actually.

dewman If that is indeed the same donor. Team 0 -- No active processors - 2138 points
dnewman (With no email address) Team 18 -- No active processors - 134 points
and two with different email addresses, starting with
dnewman@ Team 18 -- one active processor - 213714 points
dnewman@ Team 0 -- No active processors - 4 points

The Pande Group has a firm policy that no changes are made to the stats once the WUs are credited so the best option is to make sure to use whichever UserName has the most points.
