Just wanted to share that my first first-author paper is now online! In the journal Stem Cells and Development, here’s my paper on “Roles of Integrins in Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Growth on Matrigel and Vitronectin.”
It seems that a few fellow Linux users are back to watching this site, so I thought I’d once again share software I use and enjoy, especially little-known software. Only this time, it’ll be distinctly Linux (specifically Ubuntu) flavored software. If that’s your thing, read on! (continued)
I primarily use Linux (specifically, Kubuntu Linux) as my main computing platform, so most of the software I could recommend might be of little use to the majority of readers (except for my advice: give Linux a try, without doing anything permanent to your computer, with a LiveCD. You might like it). That said, there are some cross-platform or Windows-only tools that I’ve grown to love, and I thought I’d share. I’d also like to hear your suggestions for little software programs or tricks that make your life easier. (continued)
Several years ago, I bought a Koala Mini from System76, a company that sells PCs running Ubuntu Linux. The system is hooked up to my TV, and functions admirably as my media center. However, a few months ago the cpu fan died, the system overheated, and it would continually overheat after about 5 minutes powered on. The system was far past warranty, and my specific model had been discontinued by the manufacturer, so I figured I was out of luck. I was wrong: System76 fixed my system free of charge– I didn’t pay for labor, shipping, or the new cpu fan. I certainly didn’t expect a free ride, but I was happy to see their dedication to excellence. So I just thought I’d post about it, for those who might be considering a pre-installed Linux system.
Some random geekery: I wrote this bash script a long time ago, but its served me well so I thought I’d post it on the vast Internet, in hope that maybe someone else may someday get use out of it. Google, don’t fail me now! Anyway, my linux bash script to randomly select a video file and play it follows below.
My hard drive crashed this weekend. Or, I should say,
Did you know that some psychologists have started diagnosing a condition often referred to as “information addiction” or “Internet addiction” as a psychological disorder? I don’t think I’m there (no 40 hour long marathon online gaming sessions for me, thank you), but I DO read a lot online. Especially my two favorite news sites, SlashDot and Digg. (continued)
