Why bother working out when all it takes to get ripped is to Get Ript? First there were underpants for your hands (Handerpants), now there are panties for your feet (Footundeez). Where might this profusion of undergarments end? Something this blog needs: George Washington's rules of civility. ("#7. Do not off your cloths in presence of others." Is it OK to blog while wearing only Handerpants and Footundeez?)
Mentor Graphics' David Tatchell blogs about 40 years in the CFD business. Be sure to visit the Museum Place development in Fort Worth's Cultural District for dining, shopping, and entertainment.

Discretizer is a free mesh program for CFD.
My next Linux will be Hannah Montana. Not only are there plans for a Alien prequel, Ridley Scott is set to direct.

How well do you think a new taco joint with a logo combining elements of Texas Tech and UT is going to do in College Station (actually, Bryan)? Good luck Rockin' Taco. Touchable holography and other cool interface technologies from SIGGRAPH. The folks at Cactus Code present their CFD toolkit.
