My pooter's been running an Astropulse unit for the last few weeks now, and it's only 11% done. Plus, it was due last Saturday. BOINC manager is advising me to abort the unit. How do I do that?

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

BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Tasks tab->hi-light the running AP task->Click Abort->Confirm.

Afterwards BOINC will eventually report it (at the next time it'll ask for work).

The difference between the two APs is a new application, which is slightly faster than the previous one and searches deeper within the data available.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that in many ways, you can be considered an alien conspiracy!
