Playing with the template

I wanted to upgrade a blog to the new template and work with it ... and to use a blog with some modifications yet not my LIS Rant which is pretty important to me.

I'm really mostly on my LIS blog now...

Hi All-
I'm still really into science but I also work full time and am a doctoral student so I'm mostly just blogging over at my library science blog. I may start adding things back here but yes, it has been quiet around here :)

So apparently my main blog is locked because it's been identified as spam? Trying to post here to see if it works or if all of blogger is messed up.

Seed: Udder Impossibility

Seed: Udder Impossibility

My favorite line: "For an unsuspecting cow standing normally, you'll need 4.4 people and for a cow smartly bracing herself, you'll need to muster 5.75 willing tippers."

Proceedings of the IEEE: Silicon Geranium?

Well, at least the PDF is right!
From the Circuits newsletter v5 n9 (Sept 2005)
The September issue of Proceedings of the IEEE (v. 93, no. 9) provides a detailed analysis of the impact of silicon geranium on commercial products since its integration with complementary metal oxide semiconductors (CMOS). The issue focuses on silicon geranium and advanced CMOS semiconductor compatibility, which has led to the development of highly integrated single-chip designs with advanced bipolar performance. Paper topics include device physics, new processes, scaling issues, reliability, and device optimization for specific applications. Other key areas of interest are high-breakdown SiGe heterostructure bipolar transistors, low-cost derivatives, linearity and noise, modeling, design enablement, and circuit examples...

Don't you love spell check?

Communications Networks Fail Disaster Area Residents

Article by Arshad Mohammed and Jonathan Krim (9/1/2005) pD01
Maybe these people don't know that local ham groups practice multiple times a year out in mobile units with generators and mobile rigs and antennas. It's purely voluntary -- they do it because they think it's important and they know they can help.

In fact, if you have an amateur radio license please volunteer. Here's more information from ARRL:
Hurricane Katrina Volunteer Signup Database Now Open (Aug 31, 2005) -- The Hurricane Katrina Disaster Communications Volunteer Registration & Message Traffic Database now is open. Site Administrator Joe Tomasone, AB2M, set up the database, and South Texas ARRL Section Emergency Coordinator Jerry Reimer, KK5CA, is handling volunteer coordination. This site is intended for Amateur Radio volunteers to sign up for communication support duty on behalf of Hurricane Katrina relief and recovery efforts in Louisiana and Mississippi. Full Story

Same place, different template

I was forced to change templates -- so you probably have landed in the right spot, it just looks different.
