I am a researcher in theoretical ecology and evolution. My work focuses on regime shifts and draws from many disciplines, including mathematics, computer science, economics, and physics. I'm particularly interested in open science, active learning, big data, web tools, R, high performance computing. Visit my open lab notebook for more information on what I do.

comment advice for debugging apport-gpu-error-intel.py crashes?
ironically, I haven't experienced it recently. Didn't change anything explicitly to fix it. Maybe a recent update addressed this, maybe just chance?

comment Can I use Amazon Glacier as the backup location?
Thanks for sharing, but why not upload directly to Glacier? It sounds like your configuration requires paying the cost of keeping a current copy of everything backed up on S3 as well, with its much higher rates.
