For news on the Raspberry Pis see Marks Rpi Cluster 

Rosetta news
Rosetta announced via twitter that they have created an antiviral protein. To quote their tweet on the 26th of June:

"We have some BIG NEWS: Researchers @UWproteindesign have succeeded in creating antiviral proteins that neutralize the new coronavirus in the lab. (These experimental drugs are being optimized for animal trials now)"

Most of last week they had little or no work so the farm was basically idle, possibly due to completing that task. More work has been forthcoming so the farm is running them now.

Other news
Most of this week was occupied getting the two networks combined into one new NBN connection. I ended up reinstalling the Raspberry Pis due to firewall issues on the Pi and not having a screen and keyboard so I couldn't access them. The Intel and AMD machines were easier because they have a screen and keyboard.

SpeedTest says I can get 45 Mbit downloads and 10 Mbit uploads now. File transfers are quicker but I don't feel they are 5 times faster than before.
