Hello admin and fellow participants. How can I prevent the project from sending me Large Collatz tasks? My computer just can't finish them by deadlines! It can only work on Mini and Solo Collatz.

Go into Your account, on the website, then click Preferences for this project Collatz Conjecture preferences, then in the 'venue' as they call it change these lines:

Run only the selected applications
Mini Collatz Conjecture: yes
Solo Collatz Conjecture: yes
Large Collatz Conjecture: no
Micro Collatz Conjecture: yes
Collatz Sieve: no

To do the changes you need to click 'Edit Collatz Conjecture preferences' at the bottom of the page, and then 'update preferences' when you are done. Things will change automatically to your new settings the next time your pc connects to the project. You can abort any of the 'Large' tasks if you wish which should then force your pc to do a connection and get more smaller units.
