ran protein 683 for 1.5 days using dial up as an experiment. the wu was finished, and then the comp rebooted. when i completed the reboot process, the wu status was ready, as opposed to finished. basically, when the console was started, it deleted the wu, and downloaded a new one. at this point i have deleted all FAH info from my windows system, and will go back to linux. one thing though, seti runs in windows w/ o much of a problem. haven't tried it w/ dial up though yet, but it has been much better in stability.
