I think, that the deadlines are to hard. I have a big WU at this time who needs 6 hours min. but I only have circa 18 hours of time. Today I only coud spend two hours at computer and I will be back at 16 o\'clock tomorrow. The deadline is 20:04 tomorrow. I think, you should increase the max. hours to work for hard WUs.

The deadlines aren\'t hard deadlines (ie. it doesn\'t matter whether you return results too late). They are merely guidelines for BOINC to correctly schedule its work. You will be creditted even if your results are \"in late\".
