[Chimera-users] Chimera Error

  Believe the error message!  It says the file is too small and it is.  
The grid size of 120 by 120 by 120 has over 1 million grid points but 
the file size is 0.5 million bytes.  The smallest value format used 
takes 1 byte per grid point.  You may have a truncated copy of the 
file.  If the file opens on another machine, then the copy on that 
machine must not be truncated.  Check the size of that file and make 
sure you get a full-size copy of it.
