Your link to bakerlab.org returns a 'server not found' error. The rosetta@home project has been effectively offline for a couple of days, though it isn't clear from your comment if it has any relationship to the downtime.

So far I've been unable to find any substantive news about what is going on, but if it is a DNS problem (per certain rumors) perhaps it might be possible to work around it? Map the hosts file to a specific IP address for a few days?

About Rosetta@Home and their DNS issues, this is from their twitter feed:

Rosetta@HOME‏ @rosettaathome 23m23 minutes ago
We're doing everything we can to get the slow moving http://dotster.com to get this resolved and http://bakerlab.org active again.

Rosetta@HOME‏ @rosettaathome 24m24 minutes ago


We started the steps to getting it verified Monday afternoon. What should have been a 10 minute procedure is now stretching into 2 days.

Rosetta@HOME‏ @rosettaathome 26m26 minutes ago
Due to a registration verification lapse our registrar (http://dotster.com ) and ICANN turned off DNS for http://bakerlab.org .

Rosetta@HOME‏ @rosettaathome Mar 6
We are experiencing DNS issues with http://bakerlab.org which may take a day to resolve. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Not recommended, but you can add this to your hosts file to get to the main server. (Don't forget to delete it.)

128.95.160.140 boinc.bakerlab.org

That won't fix everything, but at least you can see the news and the forums, but right ow there is no news there.

Let me remind you again not to leave garbage in your hosts file.
