I don\'t normally look at the graphics, but as I had a couple of iceballs recently, when I see anything odd, I have started to do so. Today I found a wu at exactly 66.666% and not progressing. Now, I am aware that when it changes from phase to phase there is a period of \"different\" activity, so have not done anything about it yet, but the graphic looked odd...

I know those HadSM3 models appear stuck for a while at 33% and 66%. They should eventually finish. Interrupting them during this time will cause them to fail. Close graphics, and after it advances to 67%, restart BOINC. Verify graphics should be improved. Not sure if that will work for you, but I did see this problem once before that a reboot fixed it.

There\'s an item about them by Geophi in the News thread. There\'s another News item (I think it\'s still there) warning members not to disturb these slabs during the phase change. They take ages post-processing to produce the end-of-phase file upload. Once the model uploads the file and starts advancing into the next phase, it\'s best not to stop the model or stop BOINC until it\'s passed at least one more checkpoint.
