Great, I'll shamelessly copy your Systemd setup to my Wiki page

I'm humbled by your very nice comments!  For me it's just best 
practices, helping myself remember how to do complicated setups, and 
possibly helping others as well.

I don't know the critical mass of Plutonium, but I fear that my weight 
in Pu would far exceed an amount to store safely as a single bar of 
metal ;-)  Platinum would be preferred for me :-)

I use the "pestat" command all the time myself!  People can get pestat 
and my other Slurm tools from https://github.com/OleHolmNielsen/Slurm_tools
