there are actually two questions. The first
relates to an observation made by scanning the CCL
archive. In almost regular time spans the question
appears what to with the error codes given by
Gaussian after a link dies. Surprisingly (at leat
so me), a summuray of responses to these questions
is apparently never posted. Does it mean that
these error codes are only for the specialists
> from Gaussian Inc., because no member of this list
(THE experts, I suppose) has an answer to these
questions so that no summary can be given?
The second question relates to a hard (and
unpleasant fact). A calculation is running on
GAUSSIAN98W on a 3.4 GHz Pentium IV with 1 GByte
working memory and 100 GByte disk space. Following
the use of internal memory during a run it is
found that the code never uses the internal memory
to more than 20%. The calculation is a point
optimisation of a lanthanide molecule with 8 water
molecules (other ligand combinations were tested,
the observation is the same - it seems to depend
on the fact that a lanthanide ion is used). SDD
pseudo cores with SDD basis sets is used for the
lanthanide ion, the basis set for the light
elements were successively reduced to 3-21G* (with
no effect). The algorithm converges. Upon going
into the next 'round', it dies with the following

highly welcome - as is contact to other CCL
