#1 Hello Folks

Unread post by DieselWeasel » Tue Jun 26, 2018 11:32 pm

Just wanted to say hello to everyone since I have just joined. I happend across boinc in one of Linus Tech Tips videos and I got very interested once I realised there was a Scottish team there was no doubt about signing up (Since I live in West Lothian). Just a little query too, does anyone know on average how big a work load is from Rosetta? Im currently working on one just now and wanted to see what download times would be for my terrible internet :lol: . Thanks all.

Hello DieselWiezel. Welcome to your new home. From memory I can't say how big the download from Rosetta is but I believe it is not too bad. May I suggest you set BOINC to allow new projects when you go to bed and by the morning you should have some work even on a bad Internet setup.

Welcome DieselWeasel. First, are you aware you can set the target runtime of Rosetta WUs in the Rosetta@home preferences here...https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/pref ... et=project

The initial download does take a long time. The Boinc Client must download programs and a couple database files which have a total size 500-600MB. After that each WU is maybe 100-200KB? Difficult to tell because it stores them in a zip file.

Hi DieselWeasel,

Welcome aboard! Rosetta is one of the greedier projects when it comes to interweb bandwidth, but even in the wilds of West Lothian it can't be so bad as to stop you taking part!
I'm in SW Edinburgh, Morningside, please don't judge me!: Where exactly are you?
