I’ve been thinking of putting rough summaries of my tabletop gaming sessions in this web log of mine. It would help me to fill the days when I don’t have any content worth putting here and it would draw many of my friends to my site.
Wanna play some four-dimensional tetris? Experts say that tissue engineering will make repair of spinal injuries routine within a decade. Obviously repairing spinal injuries is easier then playing 4-D tetris.
Someone hacks one of those robot vacuum cleaners. Just in time for the next war, EMP weapons. This isn’t a surprise since EMP weapons are actually pretty cheap and within the means of developing countries. Yep, those spammers are getting pretty tricky. Here’s a neat little Flash puzzle toy. Using smart gels and modified ink [...]
Mr. Farlops begs thee to read Perdido Street Station and The Scar by China Mieville.
In honor of MLK day, a little Get Your War On.
My site has become a minor example of table-free, three column layout. Just yesterday I learned who created the Dr. Who theme music way back in 1963: Delia Derbyshire. Ms. Derbyshire, a scholar of music, mathematics and electronics, was one of the early pioneers of electronic music. Someone notes my complaints about Flash.
So I got flattened by a chest cold and only now have I got the motivation to write here again. Computational biology develops computer models of bacteria sophisticated enough allow us to predict evolution. Anyway, I discovered one of my pages appearing in someone’s hotlist. PCWorld has some suggestions about how to recycle old hardware. [...]
Just before 2002 closed there were a number of firsts in tissue engineering. Teeth, blood vessels, bladders, and muscle tissue were all grown successfully (or with partial success.) in the labs. Stem cell research, a key component of tissue engineering, made a big splash. And a new tool for injecting news cells into tissue was [...]
