There will be a hopefully brief interruption to the service tomorrow
Thursday at 10:30 CST to provide separate NFS servers for SixTrack
and Atlas. The WWW pages should still be accessible and a further
message will be posted when the operation is complete. Eric and Nils.

I set the max_results_day to -1; locking the stable door
after the horse has bolted. For some reason I cannot read the
messages I read this morning on this topic. Thanks for the
help and the Google translation. Eric.

Quorom of 5, wzero and Pentathlon
I am currently running a set of very important tests to try and
find the cause of a few numerical differences between different platforms
and executables. I could/would not do this usually but because of your efforts
during the Pentathlon I have a unique opportunity. Also keeps up the
workload and gives you all an opportunity to get credits.
These test are wzero with a quorum of 5.Thanks. Eric.

Please note that this may occur if you are also subscribed
to the LHC experiment projects ATLAS or CMS using vLHCathome.
A workround is to delete the remaining files yourself.
