    Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but Rosetta's websites are not accessible via domain name due to a mix-up with their registration. It's currently being worked on and you can read about it here:
    http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=10279&postid=76268#76268

    To get around this, you can edit your hosts file with the following entries:

    128.95.160.140 boinc.bakerlab.org
    128.95.160.142 srv1.bakerlab.org
    128.95.160.143 srv2.bakerlab.org
    128.95.160.144 srv3.bakerlab.org
    128.95.160.145 srv4.bakerlab.org
    128.95.160.146 srv5.bakerlab.org


    If you're on Windows and not sure how to do this, PM me and I can help. I'm at work so I might not answer in a timely fashion. Otherwise, the easiest way to do it:
    1. Show all files. i.e. protected system files
    2. Open Notepad as an administrator
    3. Hit open and browse to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc and open the hosts file (you'll need to change from .txt files to all files)
    4. Paste the above entries into the bottom of the file, Save, and reboot.

    It's funny, when I noticed Rosetta wasn't uploading a few days ago, all I could think about was how Rosetta used to cause me fits when they first came out. Now that I'm back crunching, my first thought was "hmmm, not much has changed apparently".

    I just added WCG to my rosetta machines until they get straightened out, but the outage is unexpectedly long. I may edit the hosts file, though it will need to be done on multiple machines. Any word on when it will be fixed?

    They're back?

    https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/

    My machines haven't been able to upload finished work yet, though.

    Update: As of 11:00AM PST, all the finished work has been uploaded, but no new work has arrived.

    According to their posts, they were trying to get a twitter storm going to put pressure on their domain host to get this done quicker, maybe that has started to work for them.

    Weird, according to them, they're up as of yesterday afternoon:

    Maybe do a project reset?

    Did that earlier to no avail, now I am trying to remove and re-add.

    Edit: That did the trick, not sure why it was necessary.
