[farmshare-discuss] How to submit batch jobs on barley?

Follow-up to this question. I submitted some jobs two days ago, with the command

qsub -cwd -M mbaryakh at ./

They were queued up with code qw every time I checked, and now they
are gone from the list. It looks like the jobs never started: there is
no output, I have received no emails, and the error files are blank.
Is there any way to tell why the wait time is so long and why its

Thanks for your help,
