Edit October 2008 - The problem described in this sticky was fixed in hadsm3 version 5.10 and any 6.xx version. Thus, I have unstickeyed it. Of course one really can\'t reliably view 6.xx model graphics in boinc 5.x.x.
The slab model (hadsm3 5.06) goes through three phases. After phase change (1 to 2 or 2 to 3), the globe graphic will have white blocks over where the text should be.
Or, if you have the left side panel up, and are displaying clouds instead of temperature, it might look like this...
This was first pointed out in this thread by TylerChris.
This doesn\'t hurt the computation of the model, but it obscures several things about the model\'s progress. As far as I know, the only way to get the graphic to look as it should is to exit and restart BOINC. There may also be numerous, spurious trickles that occur at phase change. This is harmless.
