I've been Linux user for over 10 years, and been computing since around age 11. I got my start in programming by learning Perl on my Debian machine in high school. Since then I've learned numerous languages including C, C++, and Python. I've also dabbled in Java and assembly.

I have a bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

I've worked in Japan as a CAD software developer in C++ on Windows. Not my favorite environment, but an interesting project never the less.

I'm currently employed by a Vancouver-based biotech startup working primarily on systems level projects but doing my fair share of software development.

My favorite programming language is Python and I use it nearly every day. My recent interests lie in virtualization, hpc, and large-scale systems management. I'm an active contributor to the Bcfg2 project.

comment How can I set the maximum number of running jobs per user on SGE?
Basically a complex is a resource of value that can be requested by a job with the -l switch to qsub. By setting a complex to be consumable, it means that when a job requests that complex the number available is decreased. So if a queue has 500 of the high_io complex, and a job requests 20, there will be 480 available for other jobs. You'd request the complex just as in your example.

Was a bit more explicit with the consumable option.
