I wish it was because of my super-duper optimisation skills, but it's not. Basically I "cocked up".

The F77 code looks for model files within a z (redshift) of 0.005. I misread this as 0.05. What is happening is the F77 code just says - "I can't do this" and exits nicely.

As one of the models is at z 0.05 and 107 galaxies are at this z I've moved them to the front of the queue.

I'll spent 10 minutes in corner with the "Stupid Kevin" hat on as penance - then I'll fix it.

Those pesky decimal points . . . just let us know when you're done!

Thanks.

@somanyroads

Most of the WUs in the queue now are for z = 0.05 which you have a model for; so you'll be crunching for a purpose.

don't be so hard on yourself ... the following is with all with humorous intent ...

...I'll spent 10 minutes in corner with the "Stupid Kevin" hat on as penance - then I'll fix it.

... origin of the 'dunce' cap ... :-)

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/1793/whats-the-origin-of-the-dunce-cap
... one of the more mystical things Duns accepted was the wearing of conical hats to increase learning. He noted that wizards supposedly wore such things; an apex was considered a symbol of knowledge and the hats were thought to "funnel" knowledge to the wearer. Once humanism gained the upper hand, Duns Scotus's teachings were despised and the "dunce cap" became identified with ignorance rather than learning. Humanists believed learning came from internal motivation rather than special hats, and used the public shame of having to wear a dunce cap to motivate slow learners to try harder.
