When I need a new work load BOINC downloads 2783 (or so) hours of work and allows for only 30 days to complete it. 2783 is 119.7 days. I could never complete this on time. Why does it give me so much work and so little time to complete it in?

You have download two Astropulse tasks, which can take a lot of time, depending on your CPU. If you no longer want to do them and only want to receive the Seti Enhanced tasks in the future, go to this FAQ and follow the pointers there.
