PPS LLR Bronze: Earned 10,000 credits (33,939)

Set up this account a few days ago to make use of cloud computers (google colab) to complete tasks (PPS-MEGA). Unfortunately, colab shuts down my session every few hours, with tasks still halfway complete.

I am unable to access the boinc manager on these cloud computers to abort these half-complete tasks. How can I abort them from the primegrid website, to avoid delaying others' progress on the project? Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience!

Edit: one of my tasks https://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=1228969118 has just returned a ridiculous execution time/CPU time. Probably will be invalid. Very unlucky number...

It can't be done. The tasks will just time out and be resent by the server.

Ouch. I think one task will be incomplete for every 4-5 completed tasks on average. Really hope I'm not causing more damage than benefit here

BOINC and PG are very good at this type of situation and since the work we do does not have any real time limit, it is OK that it happens. You could always think about a smaller sized project.

No harm done. This happens all the time.
