While updating the configuration on a few machines, I inadvertently abandoned several tasks. Is there a way to abort them through the primegrid.com UI? Since the machines are effectively gone, I have no way to connect to them via BOINC manager.

Ten (or so) of them are tasks associated with the Mercury Challenge with deadlines of 11/24...

No, there's no way to do that, but even if there was, as a policy decision, we just let them time out. This isn't not a real problem for us, whereas "Oops, I didn't mean to cancel that one!" would be an actual problem.
