New side bar

There is a new element at the side bar called Progress. It's aimed to keep track of what I'm doing related to this blog.

Really Cool.

Net News Wire Lite

My latest addition, to my list of programs I use everyday is Net News Lite. If you want to pay for it you can get extra features, but I don't need them at the moment. Net News Lite is a RSS or Feed reader. I have to say that I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and it already saved a lot of time.

How does it works; you subscribe to your favorite websites, in the preferences you select how often you want it to be actualized. Once there is something new to read in one of your websites it will let you know. If there is nothing new to read you don't need to go from one website to the next hoping for new content. I would recommend giving it a try. I can't recommend a windows one because I don't know any but I'm sure they exist.

Extra some journals like Nature and APL (applies physics letters) are implementing RSS feeds, letting you know when there is new articles, this is pretty useful for people trying to stay on top of the new advances in science.

Cocoa, USB 3 and lots of money

Some cocoa references I found on

A video with lots of money
Lots of Money

And a new USB standard USB 3.0 will be 10 times faster than current USB. I would like to see some USB 3.0 computer displays so you can connect as many as empty USB ports in your computer.

VIsual GSL

I have been working my way around Obj-C for the past two weeks.

It's recommended to learn Obj-C to program mac applications (at least to program the user interface) and I have to say that so far I like it. Basically Obj-C gives regular C Object Oriented Programming (OOP) capabilities. I'm more used to the Java way of doing things, but they are not that different.

One of my motivations lately has been the mac research website, I would recommended to any scientist considering transitioning from windows to mac as their research platform. My favorite part of this website so far is the Obj-C/Cocoa tutorials for scientists, and it's the way I have been learning Obj-C. I hope you will enjoy it.

Take the test and discover if you can spot a serial killer.

Visual GSL

So I made a outline of what I want to do for this project, but I'm having trouble publishing. I just made an image below, if you click on it is readable. Next week I will try to do it better.

Best. Chuy
