It appears that a database intervention at CERN went badly, leaving our data tables empty and us not being able to submit new CMS@Home jobs. Advice is that it will take several days to recover -- and as well as that some of the major players are in the USA, which has holidays for the rest of this week. I'll keep an eye on it, but I'm doubtful we'll be running again this week. Sorry 'bout that!
Happy Thanksgiving...

OK, thanks to great efforts by the CMS & CERN IT teams, a workaround is in place and we are able to run jobs again! I've submitted a small batch and have jobs running on my boxen. I'll submit a larger batch later, and take the opportunity to increase the job size as the average run-time is less than I would prefer. This should increase our efficiency.
