The NGS queue has been down for several days now. We expect this to be
up soon. This is related to the upgrades on the public Main server, as
noted in the top banner. Leaving jobs queued will ensure that they are
processed when this queue opens again.
The simplest alternatives for temporary, resource intensive,
high-priority work include cloud Galaxy instances and potentially
public Galaxies. But you can also review all options on the Choices
wiki, including a local Galaxy, which is very simple to get started
(5-15 minutes) and great for smaller tasks.

Please know that we are very much aware of the inconvinience this is
causing our users. The upgrades to our underlying infrastructure are
closer now, just a few weeks out.
Thank you for your patience,
