Weekly update 63

Not surprisingly, there's more underlying my pending work here at the CFL than at first appeared. Data are data, and models are models, but sometimes there's more or less and further along or behind than you thought. I'm still working out just what it is I need to prioritize in my tasks here, but it seems inevitable I will come out with some neat research ideas.

One thing I did this week was play around with the DST (Fishwerks) being developed by my team, including some folks over at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. It's a pretty cool interface and tool with some quirks to be worked out. Probably my favorite thing about it is that you can run some pretty advanced applied optimizations on a dedicated cluster without needing special certification (note this is not an endorsement to overload the system).
