Gustav -Praying for all in Jamaica today…

Tropical storm Gustav is making it’s way past Jamaica today (floods abound). I’ll be sending up prayers for everyone to stay safe while Gustav is passing. The Jamaican Radio Station Power 106 may have more live news (the link for Winamp can be used in iTunes).

Apple iCards is no iMore…

For those of you who have known me for a significant amount of time, you have likely received some form of Apple iCard from me. I used to love that service dearly. It was part of the .Mac suite of webpages from Apple. The beauty of the site is that it was populated with beautiful images, enabled you to use it whether on a mac or IBM (shudder), included absolutely no spam whatsoever, and was embedded as an image into an e-mail message that was sent to the e-mail you specified. It was simple, beautiful, and just darn worked.

Now, I have the unfortunate frustration of trying to find another solution that is similar and as easy on the receiver as iCards was. :( No fun, Apple. So, Apple iCards is no iMore because of the introduction of Apple’s often frustrating often hated MobileMe push service for the iPhone. [ptooey]

Sad day indeed.

A Quick Introduction...

I'm a graduate student (PhD Candidate) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I've studied and researched in two fields of Materials Science and Engineering (Polymers and Semiconductors). My interests are as diverse as my musical tastes and I usually have my hand in some crazy project during my free time.

I'm available for consulting and have access to a world-renown materials research user-facility supported by the D.O.E. If you would like to know more, please contact me.
