One of the most amazing examples of cellular nanotechnology is a molecular motor protein known as kinesin. Kinesin is responsible for transporting molecular cargo -- including chromosomes (e.g. during cell division), neurotransmitters and other important material -- along microtubule tracks from one region of the cell to another. It is driven by ATP hydrolysis, thereby converting chemical energy into mechanical energy which it can use for movement. A kinesin molecule typically possesses two tails on one end, which attach to the cargo, in addition to two globular heads (often called "motor domains") on the other end.

Electron microscope video of phonograph needle in an LP groove. About 1/400 actual speed. Captured via Tektronix MDO3000 oscilloscope.

This video was made via the "stop motion" animation technique.  I moved the LP by 50 microns at a time, and captured a frame after each move. The setup inside the microscope was made possible by the fact that there are two separate stages with their own motion controls. I fixed the needle to one stage and the LP to the other so that I could get both parts into the frame at a good angle.

When SysAdmins attack: April Fools edition. We made a server throw made-up alarms to the monitoring software for the Network Operations Center team to triage. They enjoyed it.

For my old students or any tech students: Grab an old laptop, put Linux on it, find ways to make it your daily driver. It will get nerve-wracking, but the venture will pay out in satisfaction and job placement.
 
Demand for skilled #Linux professionals continues to outpace the supply of qualified candidates, according to the Linux Foundation, which on March 4 released its 2015 Linux Jobs report, produced by career Website Dice.

The stars which wink innocently at you in the night are violently erupting explosions which would sublimate your skin and vaporize your blood in an instant. Good night! ;)
Introduction
I used to be a perfectionist, but I'm much better now. I live around Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I'm a Linux lifer, DIYer, actor, and most importantly: musican.  

There are those who lead, those who follow, and those who look at the flock thinking, "Why the hell are they going that way?"
Bragging rights
By day: I have an above average IQ. By night: I'm a drummer.
