As I've said before, my main concern is that it taints the results. Any results reported out of Rosetta@home have to be replicated because it all feels like preliminary work.

How exactly does the fact, that the project has not always enough work for everyone anything to do with the quality of the results? Apparently they got the amount of results they need for the current tasks and are not in hurry to release the next batch. That's their choise, we don't know why and I'm fine with that. The fact, that they don't generete more WUs than they need just to satisfy some people thinking only about their RAC, does not make it feel "like preliminary work", but quite the opposite. New work is available now btw.



Best not to ask questions. They've had the same issue which really comes down to their system and how they use it, but want the scientists to change the project to fix the issues. It has been suggested that maybe this is not the project for them but yet they keep coming back. Best bet, just ignore what they have to say as none of it is based upon any facts.


I agree completely. Rosetta is a fine, long standing, professional project providing a valuable resource to the scientific community.

I agree. But the "historical" lack of communications is something frustrating.

Yes, we can definitely improve our communication with the R@h community significantly. There seems to be a lull in the lab regarding posting more about the research and currently new jobs to be submitted. This typically means researchers are quite busy working in the wet lab or working on producing the next batch to run. It is not uncommon for some researchers to work day and night, and through the weekend.

To get back on topic, a whole load of Rosetta tasks have become available in the last 30 minutes.

Grab them while you can.

This is starting to resemble GPUGRID far as available work units go.
I guess I could always keep my machines busy doing LHC@home, and try to iron out the VBox errors.

TN-Grid is an easy backup project.

Thanks! Always looking for more biological projects like Rosetta and WCG. Just joined there as well.

Go to a page like this one and click on someones name and then the Cross Project Identifier number to see the Projects they are running,
you will get an idea of what the top crunchers are running. Most have run all the Projects at some point and it's also an easy way to see which ones are still active.
Not ALL active Projects show up on the list when you click to add a Project in Boinc.

It appears that there is something seriously wrong with you Internet. They are downloaded and completed by other people.

I practically never get download errors.

Thanks for your interest, please take into account that the quantity of units you download by day is very low compared with me. If you check the top cruncher hosts you will find a lot of download errors in almost every one. So, I do not think it is my internet connection, not only mine at least :).

It depends on which of your machines you are referring to. One of them does well enough, but this one has a high download error rate:

The "top crunchers" may have other problems, and I don't think are relevant. If they were, then your top machine would have the most problems.
