I am going to be busy for the next two weeks or so with topics decidedly fluid-mechanical. Here at the blog, then, there will be little original material while I get my flu-mech hat on and try and get through a PhD admission interview. Here are some things that should keep you occupied, at least until tomorrow:
First, a brilliant idea implemented well. A tone-matrix that lets you create your own beats, designed by somebody called Andre Michelle. Good one, Sir!
Second, you know how Sheldon Cooper is fond of text-based games that run on the most powerful graphics processing utility yet created (imagination)? Here’s a site that let’s you play some classic text-based games, using an emulator that runs on Java.
Third, a timelapse video of the Aurora Borealis from APoD. The Sun’s just come out of a prolonged activity-minimum, and is expected to increase in activity over the next three years or so. Auroras can be seen more frequently.
Lastly, and I won’t fault you too much if you think this is beating a dead horse, but Sarah Palin’s gone ahead and… well, see for yourself.
