Hi all. I just started playing Fold It, and I'm already hooked. Who knew protein folding could be fun? Anyway, I finished the intro puzzles and am eager to start working on the real proteins. However, every time I try to start one, I get the following error: "A timeout was reached due to excessive server load. Sorry for the inconvenience, please try again later." I get this every time, whether I play online or offline. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I cannot believe I did not

I cannot believe I did not see that option on the front page. Thank you, vixxy, it worked. However, it begs the question of why the developers bothered to put it as an option. Would anyone actually want network timeouts?
