Using Find and Tar Together to Backup and Archive

Point 1: If you wish to find files in a single folder and tar them into gzip-compressed archive. You can use a one-liner to do it.

% find -maxdepth 1 -name '*.sh' | tar czf script.tgz -T -

“-maxdepth” refers to the current depth of 1 or current directory

“-T -” causes tar to read its list from a file rather than the command line. The “-” means standard input and output.

You should have a file is script.tgz

Point 2: If you wish to find files in a single folder and tar them into bzip2-compressed archive.

% find -maxdepth 1 -name '*.sh' | tar cjf script.tgz -T -

The Progress and the Future of AI

I really enjoy the presentation by Dr. Goh Eng Lim on the Future of AI. Really absorbing…..

Dr. Eng Lim Goh explains how AI’s predictive technology is being leveraged for our customers today. HPE is partnering with DZNE to use Memory-Driven Computing to find a cure for Alzheimers and with our supercomputing power we won in poker and created a commercial-off-the-shelf computer system to work in space. Also, Emily Kennedy from Marinus Analytics joins Dr. Goh to discuss fighting human trafficking using AI technologies and becoming a global company with the help of HPE. We are committed to help accelerate what is next for your enterprise.

IBM Singapore Supercomputing Virtual Forum 30 June 2020


In the past few months, technology has been put on a test like never before. On one hand healthcare research professionals have be grappling with the onset of a pandemic, trying to find answers in data and numbers. On the other hand, corporates are struggling to make sure that continuity is maintained in order to minimize long term economic impact. In some form or the other, both segments are embracing technology for a better future. Join us for this virtual summit where we bring in the experts from the domain of HPC, AI and Quantum to explore how the paradigm has shifted from what we ‘want’ to what we ‘essentially need’ from Tech for Good.

G16NBO is currently configured with only 100000000 words Errors

If you encounter errors when you use NBO7 with Gaussian G16a

This calculation is attempting to allocate 299857248 words of scratch memory,
but G16NBO is currently configured with only 100000000 words. If you have the
NBO6 source distribution, you can reconfigure G16NBO by editing maxmem.fh in
nbo6/src/g16nbo/include and rebuilding the executables.

Dynamic memory allocation in the GenNBO, G09NBO, and G16NBO interfaces to NBO7 has been implemented. The issue has been fixed with the latest download from NBO7 site.

Remember to update at your NBO directory

Webinar – The promises of the One Health concept in the age of anthropocene


TITLE: The promises of the One Health concept in the age of anthropocene


SPEAKER: dr Aneta Afelt, Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling, University of Warsaw | Espace-DEV, IRD – Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, Montpellier, France


DATE&TIME: Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 4:00 PM (CEST)



In May 2019 an article was published: Anthropocene now: influential panel votes to recognise Earth’s new epoch situating at the stratigraphy of Earth’s history a new geological epoch – the domination of human influence on shaping the Earth’s environment. When humans are a central figure in an ecological niche it results in massive subordination and transformation of the environment for their needs. Unfortunately, the outcome of such actions is a robbery of natural resources. The consequences are socially unexpected – a global epidemiological crisis. The current COVID-19 pandemic is an excellent example. It seems that one of the most important questions of the anthropocene era is how to maintain stable epidemiological conditions for now and in the future. The One Health concept proposes a new paradigm – a deep look at the sources of our well-being: our relationship with the environment. Our health status is interdependent with the well-being of the environment. It is clear that the socio-ecological niche disturbance results in the spread of pathogens. Can sustainable development of socio-ecological niches help us?

Let’s take a look at the results!



ANETA AFELT: Aneta Afelt, PhD, is a geographer working in the area of health geography. Her interest in research is the One Health concept, where environment, epidemiology and epizootiology are considered as interconnected processes located in social-ecological niches. She shows in the research results that the destruction of ecosystems results inepidemiological consequences. She works at the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling of the University of Warsaw, Poland, and is currently a Guest Researcher at Espace-DEV, IRD – Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, Montpellier, France. She is also a member of the scientific committee for Covid-19 of the Ministry of Science in Poland and a scientific consultant of the European Research Agency for actions dedicated to Covid-19.



Checking Disk Usage within the subfolders

I like this command which I often use to look into the dish usages at the sub folder level to check for large usages

% du -h -d 1
1.3M    ./Espresso-BEEF
65M     ./MATLAB
478M    ./Abaqus

  • -h refers to human-readable
  • -d refers to depth level. By default, it is 0 which is the same as summarize
