Howdy All,
I'm done with Rosetta.
If anyone else would like to take the mantle of "Founder" please let me know and I'll forward it on to you.
For whatever reason, I am no longer able to get work units from Rosetta, and as such there is no longer any reason to run my CPU 24/7. With rising fuel and energy costs, I have to take in to account everything that is consuming extra energy in my home and this is a big one.
Have been a loyal contributor since 2008, but just can't afford it anymore. For those interested, I have not been able to get any WU's as of mid Feb, and I really don't care why, I just cant afford to keep my PC running 100% 24/7 like I used to.
Thanks to all who have contributed, and thank you to all site admins who have helped us with our contests in the past.

From the overclockers.com Stanford Folding @ Home team (32), we wish the best for you and the team. While we are all doing different work for different educational systems, we all have the same goal of bettering mankind.

It is certainly understandable that rising costs hamper the ability to continue to dedicate your system for science but it sounds like you've done plenty and as such, there is no shame. Back in the day for the Folding @ Home groups down under (Australia) thier nation raised electric cost to the point that nearly all users had to give it up. It happens. There is only so much money in our pockets and our lives have to be a priority.

Again, best of wishes to you and the team. We're routing for ya all.

Started getting Rosetta v4.2 work again on my linux hosts a few days ago. My linux hosts did not have enough storage space to run the Rosetta python work, which also required virtual box to be installed.
