(slaps hand up head ...) Just realized after several months that having all the bells and whistles on while running recipes was slowing me down. Some AD colleagues on group chat this morning confirmed and suggested EVERYTHING POSSIBLE needs to be shut down under the view page while running a script:
- Uncheck everything ("Dark background" probably doesn't cost much ;-)
- Color: probably doesn't matter but I'm using "Rainbow" which shows the #1 - to - last AA order of the chain as red-to-blue, which is sort of cute
- View protein: "Line" was recommended by a knowledgeable ADer
- View Sidechains: "Don't Show (Fast)" -- this is the biggie
Another ADer suggested the above advice should be posted in letters of fire for all new folders. I'm presently running a version of Quake and the durn'd thing is spinning about four times faster than before. Sure wish someone had clued me in at the start, maybe a one liner needs to be added, say, right near the top of the Recipe home page http://fold.it/portal/recipes (and by the way, there seems to be very little general documentation about using recipes on either fold.it or the wiki, or am I missing something?)
Of course note your favourite view options for hand-to-hand combat **before** you strip down for recipe running. There's also a handy "Default view options" at the bottom left of the view screen to get back to something reasonable.
Attached is a screen shot of what my new stripped down screen looks like with above settings.
