Hello,  Can we get deadline extended?  My HDD failed, probably from running BOINC 12 to 16 hrs per day! Don't want to hold up others waiting for validation while i order a new ssd to replace failed mechanical hdd. Also boinc app won't fit on  Andoid phone.  Delinery of new part or new computer not til few days after deadline for tasks.

Don't worry about it it actually happens to most of us at some point or other, the tasks will time out and be automatically resent to someone else to crunch and you will get new ones once you are back up and running again.
