Physicist/Artist who fools around with electrons, photons, pixels and bits. Currently in San Diego, formerly of Socorro NM, Orlando FL, Boulder CO, Ann Arbor and other places in Michigan.

Mainly, I've been making 2D and 3D illustrations and animations, writing explanations for things in physics, astronomy and electronics, writing software for image processing and science number-crunching, and teaching the cats to do my work for me. Regrettably, the latter endeavor has been a total failure.

comment Text files vs. text in database
The text files I have in mind are neither html nor php (and not anything else recognizable to normal web developers) but a special markup I concocted, to be processed by a special php function. I'd be loading the file contents into a string var.

Ooh, I've been designing this site and haven't had a thought about search. Yup, that should be a feature.

comment How to take back our domain name?
It would be best to not be a part of the market for those domain grabbers. If only everyone who had a domain taken away would agree.
