Reporting partial ECM results?
 
I had some ridiculously long job started in Prime95 and after joining PrimeNet it went and registered it there. Is there a way to report completed curves without whole job finishing so I could cancel it without just throwing it away?

Go into worktodo.txt and set the number of curves from its current number (that you think is too big) to one that is one greater than the number of completed curves. Then it'll wrap up one more curve and submit the results.

...You may want to wait until someone else confirms my answer before doing this, if you care a lot about the credits involved. But I believe my answer to be correct. I have accepted manual assignments from the server and they always list 150 curves. I have had no problems adjusting that number as low as 1.
