My computers validated a task on separate machines but I thought that the same user couldn't validate one task???

Validation can be done by one of your other hosts, it just cannot be done by the same hostID.

Think about situations where there aren't many other hosts doing the work, or when someone has set up a BOINC program in-house and runs it on his own farm - under one account.

in this project it is allowed that a single host gets both work units, but never at the same time. there are technical scheduling and homogeneous redundancy reasons for this.
