Work Unit ps_190727_input_1828_3_1 was received on 3 Aug and has a report deadline of 14 Aug. My Raspberry Pi B+ (model 1) has 100 percent of its CPU devoted to Asteroids@Home, but presently has completed only 47 percent of the task, so it appears unlikely that it will finish by the deadline. Is it possible to extend the deadline to allow credit for the completed task?

Considering the fact that the Raspberry Foundation has brought out no less than three new iterations of the Pi since your present model B+, each time at roughly the same cost: Can't you upgrade to the Pi 4, even if it is the 1 GB version? You will have a 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72, capable of so much more than the by now ancient 32-bit single core ARM11 that you are presently using.
