Hey there,

I have a task enlisted on my BOINC manager. Its deadline says 24-X-2016, it is already 29-X-2016 today and the working time equals 187 hours, while still some new is being summoned up. I am using 7.6.6 (x86) BOINC version. Delete the task? Should I expect more problems like that eventually?

Abort the task. Someone else has completed the replacement task, so you will never get credit for the work your computer did. I have never run into a never-ending task problem with Cosmology@home, so it might be a one-off.

Allright, thanks for the answer.
