DBS120005UC Complex Social Science.docx The SDSC time you are asking for is on Comet. That’s where the job runs. UCI hosts the machine with the gateway server. That server sends jobs to Comet.

  • Yes, you have to ask for the SDSC time every year. Your time runs out on 3/13. The deadline for getting a request in for 4/1 start was Jan 15. I’m sure I sent a note about that previously. Why don’t you send Ken Hackworth (, who runs the allocations process a note and ask what the best path forward is? You’re not using a lot of time, but you want to have it available continuously so the gateway isn’t interrupted. I would ask Ken about future deadlines and put them on a calendar with a reminder system. Nancy
  • Ken Hackworth (, who runs the allocations process. Missed Jan 15 2017. When is the next data for a request for startup?

  • Silvy Achankunju has readied our chapters (Wiley Companion to Cross-Cultural Research) to go the Wiley book publisher, Joe White. Past March 15, will continue for use by researchers? Call Jon Nilsson: will the VM farm continue to run after March 15?
  • Harry Mangalam <> 949 285-4487 (contact instead): The 'location' of your server is that it's a Virtual Machine on one of UCI's VM farms. Jon: The VM farm that Harry Mangalam is referring to is a great place to have a server. It is a very reliable virtual machine infrastructure similar to AWS, but hosted exclusively on-campus in UCI OIT's data center.
  • I'm not quite sure what it is you would like to setup... you mention "DEf01f" which is one of the links on the left side bar of your galaxy instance. (But I'm not sure what you mean by "cross-cultural analyses".)** If you have a new tool or workflow that you'd like setup on our server, then you'd have to contract with Francisco Lopez <> 1 949 824-8818 who can give more information should it be needed, re: size/OS/physical location of the VM farm should you need it. To get that done Jonathan Nilsson and Harry Mangalam can help.

    • Cross-cultural analyses involves several databases, each for a sample of world societies that have common numbers of variables per society and a code for each variable. The codes form a rectangular set of variables, societies by variables. "DEF01f" is a computer program at intersciwiki that allow users or students to choose a database, examine a codebook for the dataset, choose a "dependent variable" from "DEF01f", then independent and additional variables, run the program, chose a map that locates societies in the "model", execute the program, see which independent variables predict the dependent variable, if any, and select to view relevant maps using the variable(s) in the model.
  • The results of the analysis will test for predictors of the dependent variables and show selected maps of locations of variables.

  • Nancy: Right now the only active allocation you have is an educational allocation for the CoSSCI gateway that expires 3/13/17. You’ll want to get a renewal request in by 1/15/17 for a 4/1/17 start. They’ll be able to extend the current allocation for 2 weeks to cover that short gap. Allocations always occur at quarterly intervals. The schedule is at


  • Hi Doug,
  • Are you still getting this message about backups? I believe you're working with a Mac laptop and you're using Time Machine to backup, is that correct?
  • It sounds like the drive that was assigned to backups may not be connected for some reason. Typically, people use an external USB hard drive to back up with Time Machine.
  • Here's a basic guide to using Time Machine:
  • It may be best if you bring in your laptop and your backup drive so we can diagnose both here. Let me know if you would like to make an appointment!

I checked intersciwiki --> --> without a user --> and anyone can use the software there, along with the dataset at (main page) --> to do cross-cultural analysis from those codes (SCCS), which is something that Fitz could use to do articles with your help (maybe expanding the explanations on the web site) and get a teaching job at one of the CSU or other campuses. My former grad student and TA Ren Feng, is now using in his teaching at his university in China. You two could do some text that I could add to (intersciwiki --> for teach as well as writing articles.

 Need some help and can give you all the other info you might need without driving down here...
 One of my Macs works fine. Another is missing my Mail Server Password.

One of my Macs works fine. Another is missing the Mail Server Password ... might be easy to fix ... if you could fix it on that laptop (Scott knows how to zoom in from Seattle to La Jolla on my computers for example, no driving required)...
