I am glad to see this action and I will definitely move back to Rosetta once the upgrades are done. FWIW I never had a problem with CE crunching, the more work that gets done the better.

(me thinks this post went in the wrong thread. Sorry)

Right it is not 2 or 3 tries it is 1. If there is one issue you get 24 hour back off and all your current work does not get uploaded. You either have to consistently watch the project, be willing to lose credit or move on. It might even be ok if Rosetta's work was 2 or 3 days out but it seems their deadlines are always tight. Like I said I want to crunch Rosetta but I am not willing to baby sit it. I moved my stuff over to WCG but I will be back if this ever gets fixed.

Just ignore his post if he bothers you. He is entitled to whatever opinion he wants. Just because you don't like what he says, you treat him with disdain and IMO makes you look like a tool.

Is it possible to see a reporting about donations/grants/whatsoever and how they use money? Or these numbers are not public?
It's not polemic, only curiosity

Ok, i do a little research by myself and i find:
In June 2014 the IPD established its Translational Research Center, which is operated with a $1.4 million Opportunity Grant from the Life Sciences Discovery Fund (LSDF). The LSDF funding to the IPD was matched 4-fold by generous contributions from private donors ($3.2 M), UW ($1.4 M), and the Washington Research Foundation ($1 M).
Dr. Pultz was recently awarded a competitive $250K proof of concept matching grant from the LSDF to conduct animal efficacy studies and safety testing of the lead KumaMax variant, an effort which is being matched by an additional $176K in philanthropic donor funding.
In the last update, we mentioned that Governor Jay Insleeā€™s 2014 Supplemental Budget (4-13-13) included $1 million to support the IPD mission, enabling the UW to recruit a talented computational biologist, Dr. Frank DiMaio
This January, the IPD was awarded $12M in funding by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to support vaccine research.
May 15, 2014. With a very generous $8 M gift from the Washington Research Foundation (WRF), the IPD has launched the WRF-IPD Innovation Fellows Program supporting research partnerships between the IPD and other Seattle-area research institutes or UW departments

Yeap, my 20 dollars are very important.

While those numbers might seem impressive, there's no indication of how many of those donations are earmarked directly to the Rosetta@Home program fund. At the same time, $28.426M is still very much a shoestring budget in the bioinformatics world and the things people are stomping their feet for on these forums may not make the cut in terms of priorities when slicing up this particular pie; All said, the fact remains that your $20 donation may be the loudest voice you have in advocating for something like a server upgrade, etc.

A lot of people are just stomping to get the 24 hour back off changed. A small fix that would quiet a bunch of us. It would also send the message that at least the rosetta people are aware of our presence and listening to our concerns.

I am aware that my cpu power was a drop in the proverbial bucket, but the lack of response has forced me to move to other projects. I know rosetta will be fine without me, but I will also be fine without them.

Although I am slightly miffed that the implication that my cpu time is not enough giving as I pay electricity for ~25 computers. I would like to know that if I donate money directly will it actually be used to correct thing directly related to the issues crunchers have? If it just goes to the project and they buy new beakers or flasks I have no interest as I donate to other causes.

I would donate today if I knew that the 24 hour backoff would be fixed. I moved on to other projects because of it. I would rather crunch rosetta but it takes to much of my time making sure it has tasks and such.

If I don't keep on top of this I run into a situation where the server will defer for 24 hours. I've seen where that would cause some tasks to be late. I like this project but there is to much I have to watch.

Rosetta is sending android project instead of cpu projects. anyway to fix this?
