Re: [Condor-users] CurrentTime = ?

Exactly.  That's why I need to set CurrentTime myself instead of relying
on the Condor DRMAA library to do it.  I never figured out how to find
out what the current time is (from Condor), but I did figure out how to
calculate it correctly using QT.

CurrentTime is a special attribute that represents the current time  
when an expression is evaluated. It's represented as the current unix  
time (number of seconds since Jan 1, 1970). So you'd want an  
expression like this:
PeriodicRelease = CurrentTime > [time you want your job to start at]

The hardcoded expression above is strange, as it will always evaluate  
to True.
