Great to have a deft handling of this, eh?

You can't bother sending me an email or a pm? That's so odd, because I was sent emails saying I could become the team founder, and whenever I viewed my team's page, throughout the 60 day waiting period, it showed me the very date that the transfer could be completed.

Thanks also for burying this change of policy, in the middle of an obscure thread.

Meanwhile, I've been waiting for 11 weeks, and received nothing but a "no".

It must be a hard choice between having a current team founder that never folded a single WU, versus myself, with other 390,000 points.

I sincerely doubt that David E K, has the sense that God gave to geese, but I'm quite sure that he's completely turned an enthusiastic Rosetta folder, into someone who has no interest at all in this project.

Not only that, he would gain access to the email address's our team members have trusted me with. I'm sure some of the lawyers in my team could sort some sort of charges out against you if it did happen, on privacy grounds.
Pissed off and upset with Rosetta@home :(

I hope if you slow down a bit, you could understand this is nothing Rosetta@home-specific. You are fighting against the wrong party.

Peter, I checked with BOINC. They said it's up to Rosetta, that the transfer option has been enabled with BOINC.

Of course, Rosetta sends you an email, confirming that you've applied for the position, and stating you need to wait 60 days for the current team founder to respond to their email query.

Then, every time you log in, and look at your team page, it tells you that you've applied for team founder, and on what date you can make that transfer, if the current founder does not respond.

Only after the 60 day wait, only when you click on the "assume founder" button, are you informed that the team founder transfer has been disabled.

You don't have to worry about me slowing down, Peter. ;)

I by the off chance happen to notice an email pop in my many emails.

A team founder request.

I am still active (semi) so why is this possible ?

A quick check
New members in last day Thomas http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/show_user.php?userid=33988

tompage1994@hotmail.co.uk (please spam this email thanks)

He is trying to take over my team.

Now if I remember correctly and by the wording of the email, if I had missed this email I would no longer run the team (and more than likely it would change name and have everyone kicked. Sod all the effort we put in to it.

Not only that, he would gain access to the email address's our team members have trusted me with. I'm sure some of the lawyers in my team could sort some sort of charges out against you if it did happen, on privacy grounds.

Now please stop this ability before a Team Teddies saga starts again.


This cuts both ways. I've been on the other side of this, trying to get a team founder change since August 22.

Although our "team founder" never folded a single WU, and never posts regarding the project, we can't get rid of him.

After no progress in my request, I'm shutting off my participation in this project. In three weeks time, after a 60 day waiting period, you could have done *something*.

I put this same message in Cafe Moderator contact point, 10 days ago, but have received no response.

The founder of Overclockers.com Rosetta team, never stayed around. In fact, he never folded a single WU.

I'm trying to assume the founders position for my team, and the 60 day wait period has expired. When I click on the "assume founder" button, it tells me:

"The team founder transfer option is currently disabled"

Would someone enable that transfer option for me, please?

Thanks,

Adak

I am trying to change our team's founder - the old one isn't around.

When I follow the directions, I get the message that "team founder changes have been disabled".

Would someone either make that change over for me, or enable it for Overclockers.com?

Thanks,

Adak

just done personally 300k credits, rac=3800. now i'm at top 2k for total credits, top 150 for RAC.
And we've just got a member with about 30 quads, doing 60k creditsday. hehe )



@Paul - Congratulations, two million ain't hay! :) Well done!

A new member with 30 quads? OMG, You hit the mother lode!

As to question #1, you will have to ask the stats sites about their content. From the Rosetta end, this thread discusses how there were a few days there where Rosetta's statistic summary job did not publish new stats for them to pull.


I checked with BOINC, and they will attempt to d/l an XML feed from the projects, every two hours, if it's available.

The Overclockers.com team is again being updated on BOINC stats. Whatever was not working, is working again - great! :)

FYI, Rosetta@Home was not listed as an active project on the BOINC stats site when I first checked on this, yesterday. A few hours later, it *WAS* listed as an active project.

Now Rosetta@Home is, again, *not* listed as an active project. I don't need a reply to this, just FYI.

Thanks.

Two questions:

1) I noticed that Rosetta is not listed as a project on the BOINC stats site, and our credits for the last few days, are also not being shown. Why is that?

2) I put in a Team founder change request, about a month ago. For several weeks, it showed a note to that effect, when I viewed the team page.

Now that note (showing that I had made this change request and noting the day it would be changed), is gone.

Since nobody knows a "Thomas Mitchell" on Overclockers.com, and he never folded a single WU, and doesn't post on the O/C'ers forum, I'm wondering why this has changed, and does that mean that my request has been turned down?

Thanks,

Adak

I notice Rosetta is no longer on the BOINC stats site, as a listed project. Rosetta teams are there still, but according to it, we've had no points earned for the last few days.

Any info on this?

Since default is 3 hours does that mean that if I set it higher the client asks for more advanced WUs or spends more time looking for models in a WU?


Yes.

Post:
I'm very new to Rosetta, please be patient. :)

My questions are:

1) I have a box which runs "headless" (no keyboard or monitor), and I want it to send in it's finished WU's, every day, at least once. How can I make it do that, automatically? It is currently set to keep 5 days of new work units, if that matters.

2) What is minirosetta? Should I be using a different Rosetta program? I use BOINC in Windows (latest version).

3) I have used Linux in the past, and have used optimized clients with SETI, in both Windows and Linux. Would Rosetta prefer us to use an optimized client for faster results, or the standard client?

I'm stirring up interest in our rather latent Rosetta team, so if you can explain the above thoroughly and clearly, I'll be able to pass it on to all the others, when they ask me.

TIA

13) Questions and Answers : Windows : No WU? (Message 55152)
Posted 18 Aug 2008 by Adak
Post:

Same here, can't get any WU's, on my boxes. I hope this gets resolved quickly.


Same same here. Is there an answer to this?


Both my computers on Rosetta, now have work. I am new to Rosetta, and have no idea what the problem was.

On my team's forum, (Overclockers.com), several new Rosetta folders commented that they were also unable to get work, as well.

Perhaps the assignment server got overloaded?

I believe it is important to keep a 4 to 5 day cache of work units for most of these BOINC projects. SETI has been infamous for not having work available, for example.

Good luck, and if you're looking for a team, we're looking for you!
