(no subject)

Well, compbio took utterly too much of my time... although it was weird to take out my excel muscles and flex em. Time was, its true, I played spreadsheet cowboy. But I picked up some new things: new aggravations at some of the UI behavior, but also some new tricks, and a better understanding of why some people try to do CAs in excel. Still wrong, but whatever.

Thought experiment/Challenge: using whatever Excel trickery you have at your mental disposal, figure out how to get a cell to modify its own code during evaluation. That is, consider evolutionary CA which adapt their rules...

But, since I stayed up too late working on compbio, I just won't go tomorrow!
