Ap work is too big for my computer. Each job would take weeks and not be finished on time. Can I stop jobs in excess of a certain size say >200hours to complete on my computer?

You can change your Project preferences to exclude AstroPulse. Make sure you unselect AstroPulse, AstroPulse v5 and uncheck the box for "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" so that if there's no SETI@Home MultiBeam work, the scheduler won't attempt to keep your CPU busy with work from other apps (i.e. AstroPulse) until there's more MultiBeam.

Mind, any AP work already on your computer will not be deleted or aborted automatically. You will either have to run it to completion or abort it manually.

How do you abort it manually?

Also, what's the difference between Astropulse and Astropulse v5?

Different Versions. I am not certain that there is any of the V5 work any more.

Other way around: AstroPulse has been depreciated in favor of the newer AstroPulse v5.
