A professor in the chem department has been running a simulation on all the login nodes of one of the super computers.

It's been two days now.

@ksteimel dynamic functional theory, it's a very or potentially very resource intensive method of calculating the properties of molecules. That said they may well be using some form of post DFT method that's even more resource intensive

@Canageek oh cool! haha I'm mostly just annoyed they're running on the login nodes instead of submitting a job.
