On my Ubuntu desktop I use boincmgr to connect to the boinc-client(s) running in containers on my server. I have growing list of remote computers I have connected to with boincmgr that are no longer active or are active but have changed IP address because the were moved between host systems. Is there a file I can edit to prune this list? If not is there a file I can delete to start over?

They are stored in a hidden file in your personal home folder, called

.BOINC Manager
(note the initial '.')

The section you are looking for is called '[ComputerMRU]'.
