I am not following rosetta closely but it seems that the layout of the screen has changed, and following that there has been crashes and freezes among the workgroup computers. Is there any active attempt to make it more stable? We can\'t let our computer freeze everytime it goes into screensaver for extended periods. It didn\'t happen before. Please advise. Thank you.

Yes, of course people are working on the issue. It is not really that the screen saver is new or even really a constant issue. However it had to be modified to accommodate the CASP work wherein there is no known structure at the beginning of the process and the RMSD value is also unknown. As a result, to properly display the information for a CASP target, the screen display had to be modified.

Moreover, while the issue may surface while using the screen saver, it is not likely to be isolated to that function. There have been massive changes to the nature of the work in preparation for CASP, that are more likely to be the cause of any issues.

...and your feedback about problems you are encountering is being requested in the \"Report Problems with Rosetta Version 5.22\" thread. And a new thread is created for each Rosetta release.

And if you can, you are encouraged to attach systems where you are seeing frequent problems to Ralph where they are always testing corrections to such problems and looking for people that were encountering the problem to help assure that it has been resolved.

I for one have found that the current BOINC version has eliminated the problems I was having with Windows where it would seem to lose contact with the crunching threads and once they completed, no new work was invoked and I was unable to display any information in the BOINC tabs without restarting BOINC. This used to hang me up every time I left my PC unattended for the weekend.
If having a DC project with BOINC is of interest to you, with volunteer or cloud computing resources, but have no time for the BOINC learning curve,
use a hosting service that understands BOINC projects: http://DeepSci.com
