I agree - they don't need to spend their workday on endless conversations - I think that 90% of us would be thrilled to see just a simple entry in the "News" section of the home page.

If you've never read it take a moment and check it out. I understand if you actually read it they will give you 3 credit hours in ANCIENT AMERICAN HISTORY.

Yes you would! The latest entry in the News section is:
"Feb 23, 2011
Outage Notice: We are going to update our scheduler tomorrow, Thursday the 24th. The project will be offline intermittantly throughout the day."

It is not only old it is about an outage that is long over with!!! Someone stopping by to check out Rosetta would NOT be inclined to stay as the last thing is about an outage!! How would they know it is over, their first inclination is that it is STILL going on!! They NEED to put some time into the webpage, if they are going to have it it NEEDS to be updated!!

Hopefully Dr. Baker will remember his promise to communicate the project's status to us better using Twitter and Facebook. I mean, it's not that hard to compose a 140-character message on Twitter updating us on what's going on. It really should only take about 10-20 seconds at most, making the whole "I'm busy, blah blah blah" excuse moot.

You know, I would not look to or expect the good doctor to get involved with giving status on the technical glitches we have been seeing - rather I would like to hear from him some sort of short blurp on a regular basis concerning the projects current direction and accomplishments.

In simple "layman's terms"

I think that it is more in the realm of the sysadmins to provide us some sort of status when things start going wrong. Or heck, enslave a few grad students to be responsible for that - after all from my time on various campuses it would appear that the average grad student is somewhere between an indentured servant and chattel.

Maybe what we all need to do is just quietly hit the suspend button for a couple days and get their attention.

But that's just frustration talking.

Unfortunately Dr. Baker knows that those on the boards make up less than 5% of the total users and most users NEVER participate in any kind of discussion, meaning that most users will just continue on obliviously trying, regardless of anything the project does.

Yes your right fatbozz. Not only are the work units failing with the TO. . . ,but also ilv. . .. So correct me if I'm wrong, but the majority of work units with errors are starting with TO. . . and ilv. . ..
Be safe,

Only for information - my computer starts to have too many computation error WUs.
It starts after last MS Win XP patch KB968930 installed on my computer.

I am not twittering, facebooking or whatever. I would like to read posts about issues on this site. The home page of Rosetta.

Yesterday and today I have a lot compute error again. As there is les or now information about I am off for a few weeks with this project.

I would rather have updates be both on the main site and Twitter because while the main site is the most obvious place to put it in, Twitter has more robust servers. Besides, you don't need an account to read public tweets. Don't be pretentious about it.

Good point.

However I won't check the public tweets as well.

That's the thing: Dr. Baker hasn't updated either one in a while.

How about it mod.sense - any word about the t0xxx type jobs which fail after only a few seconds - I am still getting a trickle of them. Matching wingman results of course. Any chance of getting the problem fixed or are they just going to let the series of jobs burn out and die an natural death?

I am also starting to see a new type of task with errors flow into my systems - with matching wingman results. Tasks have the prefix of "dck_rhoA_rhoA" and fail after zero seconds with the error message:

ERROR: Option matching -docking:no_filters not found in command line top-level context


Sample tasks would include:

414237964
414202168
414127519
414134968
414192201
414167204

additionally, I had previously mentioned in this thread a series of tasks which ran for a while (half hour and up)- end with 100 decoys generated and then fail with a validate error - matching wingman results here too.

The names for these tasks seem to all be prefixed with "ProteinG_abinitio_SAVE_ALL_OUT"

Sample tasks would include:

414750044
414771827
414705765
414691538
413762471
413761980

Thanks in advance for any information you can squeeze out of the admins on these issues - it has been almost two weeks since they were first reported and the crunchers have been provided with no feedback yet.

The admins seem to be asleep at the wheel - are they studying to be air traffic controllers when they grow up?

This air traffic controller hasn't seen any of the problems on his computer you guys are talking about. I've got a "ProteinG_abinitio..." running right now, and a "TO533..." ready to report. Maybe the problem is with sleeping aerospace computer engineers (from Texas) ;-)

This has already been answered in the minirosetta 2.17 thread.

As the first post in that thread states: that's where bugs should be reported. There's no need to have a separate one here: it just gets confusing.

OK - I posted fresh examples of my previously reported errors to the minirosettsa thread. Is there really hope that it will cut down on the number of weeks it takes to get a response / resolution?

Same here... I have a "T0591..." ready to report. It DID take 6 hours... when my run time is set at 2 hrs.

But I have a "Ross2X3" that failed after 44 seconds of run-time.

By the way... David seems to keep posting new content about the research @ https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=1177
