At this moment I'm running two machines: a PP400 with 128 MB (31 hrs 20 min for one unit) and a P200MMX with 64 MB (Estimated 62 hrs for one unit). In the next days I will add a Mac, a Power PC with OS 7.55.
Why should we run our machines on different accounts? I think, using different accounts would only be useful for calculating an average of the processing time for one machine.
But maybe your question is pointing to some server-side structures... In this case, forget my answer.

I'm running on three machines, and I created a separate account for each.
Is this a good idea, or should I run all three on one account? How are
others using multiple machines?

Processing time --on my 166MMX--about 100 hours; on 266MMX laptop, 50 hours
(go figure!).
