Graduate student at Northwestern University studying bio sciences and BIGG DATAAAAA; still know my electrical engineering though.

  • Learning:
    • Python (+ wxPython, PIL Image, others),
    • PowerShell
    • Java (on Android platform)
  • Know C on embedded well (what's a file? stream? :P)
  • Used to know HTML (sort-of now), CSS (less-so...), JScript (no.) At least I was able to forget most of this stuff just in time for AJAX to become useful. (Because it's totally different from DHTML...)

I like stout, esp. oatmeal stout. Gin and tonic if we're talking mixed drinks. Also like Portal (hell, all Valve games), and would kill a bus full of baby nuns with fire if Gabe would release Half-Life 3 already.

It's that hard to think back to yourself a year ago and figure out some method to communicate?

comment Scientific accuracy of Jurassic Park's premise?
@ShizZ. because in the absence of long, continuous, overlapping stretches of DNA it is impossible to reconstruct the whole thing. A better book analogy might be if I gave you 2- or 3-word sequences from a book, if you could successfully reconstruct the entire thing. Successfully getting all sequences ("full coverage") would be a monumental task, but without sufficient overlap (which doesn't happen because DNA slowly fragments into shorter and shorter pieces) the number of possible combinations is impossible to deal with.

comment Why does HYDRA have such inefficient lab coats?
Our lab coats (for the chemistry department I work in) are blue. As far as being able to identify the chemical based on the stain...the vast majority of liquids I deal with (hazardous and non-hazardous alike) are all colorless or straw-colored.

@Braiam providing a safe IP address that is known to be unused for documentation purposes has no purpose? If you want to lord it over the RFCs, it's easier to point to those published on 4/1 as being superfluous and a waste of time.
