Simulation time

Summer is perfect for running simulations in parallel university-wide computer systems. Everyone is on vacation and the processors are always available almost immediatelly, so I feel like it's just me and a couple of other people only that use the cluster. 256 processors? No problem, sir.

My latest simulation was producing over 200GB of data so they had to kill it:-) I'll see if I can around this issue. If I lower my resolution the output may be noisy again, but I'll give it a try.
