thanks for the insights.  comedic levity included... :)

running the job twice is likely going to be our solution.  it's
painful when you have multiple people running multiple jobs, in that
it wastes resources, but such is life.

i was intrigued by Joe's suggestion of snapshot'ing kvm instances.  i
might look into that as an academic exercise.  i knew you could
pause/snapshot/resume an instance, but i've never tried to resume a
saved off snapshot, only restart one.  if one could resume a snapshot
and have the computation leave off exactly where it was paused, that
might be nifty
