♦ The Wiki experienced a few moments of downtime due to system maintenance. The downtime was <10 minutes.
Please note the "Go" and "Search" buttons in the search bar. They're not the same, and entering text and hitting ENTER is the same as using the "Go" button. Please try using the "Search" button; we're using a new search engine and it has cool new features.
♦ Documented a few more settings. Also, check out the cool, Huge_surfaces page for handling very large objects and representing them as surfaces, in PyMOL.
♦ We got our 2,000,000th page view!
