I have a workunit on my home laptop that's up to 203% completion right now.

Curiously enough, according to Boinc it says that Chess960 is running, but the only one accumulating % is RALPH.

Wow good eye! I haven't seen that hang, but your explanation makes sense. Let me see what we can do.

On the other issues -- my mac screensaver says that the percentage complete is "inf%". This sounds like the issues reported below, too with large percentage complete values. Dang!

I haven't been able to reproduce the Mac issue (process not found) noted on the R@H message boards yet. But I'm hoping to find a fix for the next update.

Finally, one of our old style protein WUs is consistently failing, so I need to ask the other developer about that. Weird.

Thanks for all the posts so far! This kind of quick feedback helps tremendously!

Another usability issue, which may be simple to improve is at step 340,000, which apparently is a magic number in the processing. This is where you clear out the histogram of energy and RMSD. It then "hangs" for 15 seconds or so, (more like a minute I suppose on a slower machine) and then takes another 10 seconds or so to do the first step or two after that.

Any program that suddenly has portions of the screen blank out, and then shows no activity (unless of course you notice the CPU seconds counting up) for more then the attention span of the caffine-loaded viewer is immediately diagnosed as being "hung" and requiring manual intervention... (as if the 5 seconds you've waited already wasn't enough for the program to trash your computer if it was going to).

...anyway, if you could just NOT blank out those graphs until you complete the initialization or whatever is happening there as step 340,000 chuggs, then it would be a sizable smidge less alarming in appearance. It would be even better if you could impose a few more "steps" in to that long processing of step 340,000.

Actually... thinking about it more, it would seem better to just leave the graphs, and since the rest of the screen will not be moving for an extended period of time, could you change the "stage" to something like "Initializing full atom relax..." with the strobing periods at the end? (if indeed that describes what Rosetta is actually DOING at that point that is :)

The WU started and jumped on 100% the next second.
It keeps running and time increases normally.

Hi all:
Mine also junped to 100% right away but since I have my prefrences set to 8 hours I will let it run.
