I got out on bed on the wrong side this morning.
I do hope Jorg stays with the list - having expertise in computational
chemistry will only add to
the lists power.

Maybe I should say things differently - your vendor's responsibility
does not stop at hardware replacements.
They often will go beyond their strictly contractual obligations and
will diagnose problems with
Linux kernel drivers, batch schedulers, application software etc. This
is part of the "value add" which is why you (read your institution)
went to a specialised cluster vendor, and not the lowest bidder.
