To avoid the penalty wrt canceling several WUs, I did so slowly wrt the 4.86 WUs we were asked to cancel. In the interum I suspended them, so my comp wouldn\'t spend time processing WUs the project admins already asked us to cancel...

However, having aborted another one of the 4.86 today, upon a reconnect, BOINC would neither upload the aborted unit, or clear it from the list of WUs. I then tried resuming the result, and getting it to report back, and then abort a second time...

I\'d rather not the old WU stay on my list? How do I clear this out of BOINC manager? What would I manually delete, if I need to do this? Somehow BOINC needs to get rid of these 4.86 WUs and stop listing them...

? ? ?

Anyhow, my core client is 5.2.13...

Manually deleteing them would require deleting the files from the slots and doing some editing in some additional files. But the easiest way would be to simply reset the project. This would reload everything and delete all the files that would have to go to clear your queue. Since there is no work from the project right now this would not affect you any more than manually deleting.

Actually there is 146 WUs according to the front page now, and there was about 343... I just downloaded a RALPH WU, which is about 14.9% done now. So should I manually delete, wait to reset?

It would be good if this got cleared out. Also, don\'t know if it was the suspending of those units before (now abortion), or something else, but my client\'s getting less work from project when WUs are available now, vs. before...
