Graduate student at Northwestern University studying bio sciences and BIGG DATAAAAA; still know my electrical engineering though.

  • Learning:
    • Python (+ wxPython, PIL Image, others),
    • PowerShell
    • Java (on Android platform)
  • Know C on embedded well (what's a file? stream? :P)
  • Used to know HTML (sort-of now), CSS (less-so...), JScript (no.) At least I was able to forget most of this stuff just in time for AJAX to become useful. (Because it's totally different from DHTML...)

I like stout, esp. oatmeal stout. Gin and tonic if we're talking mixed drinks. Also like Portal (hell, all Valve games), and would kill a bus full of baby nuns with fire if Gabe would release Half-Life 3 already.

@DanielStandage So on the (fictional) Builders.SE site, "How do I fix my circular saw?" should be closed because it's not about building anything?

@David unfamiliar with that site, if you think it's better there, feel free to flag a mod down.

comment What is the advantage of using starter cultures for growing bacteria?
I'm not sure if I'm reading into this incorrectly, but does E. coli (or monocultures in general) function commensally? e.g., if I inoculate 5 mL or 1 L with the same number of cells, will the 5 mL produce more cells (not density) faster?

@leonardo some sort of manual hack like that may work (as mapmask seems to expand a little anyway), but doesn't seem that optimal. I'll beat on this for a while and let you know what I come up with.
