Working on Website

Oh yes! I'm working on a new website. I've got the layout down in CSS/HTML, and I am working on implementing WordPress. My vision will have JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and PHP. I can't wait!

I am bit of a newbie to WordPress and a lot of other stuff, but it is exciting to read about it. WordPress at the URL(http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development) provided an awesome link at http://yoast.com/wordpress-theme-anatomy/.

So wonderfully nerdy! I love the Geeks who prepare this stuff.

Genomics Lab Visit / Film

Today I visited a Genomics lab at OU. It was a good experience after listening to the $1,000 Genome by Kevin Davies on Audiobook. Personal Genomics seems to be yet another use for computers after Protein Modelling, Molecular Dynamics Simulations, Density Functional Theory Modelling, High Energy Physics Modelling, Weather Forecasting, Climate Modelling, neural networks, cinema, economics, ....., smartphone apps, and social networking.

It's kind of odd at first to realize that although these things have different names, they have a lot in common. For example, I found Donald Knuth's QuickSort algorithm on the web for people in both economics and Climate Modelling. It's probably used lots of other places too.

In addition, I found myself at a planning session for a film.

I did some other things as well, which I won't mention here.

One final comment: I've noticed throughout the years that people in Bio field are fun to be around. I'm not really sure why.

The G-forces on hummingbirds

I saw a hummingbird today, and I could not help but wonder what kind of g-forces they experience. Here is what a Google search turned up:
