Energy gap indeed

I'm posting this from my Blackberry. Just a few minutes ago I finished sketching a 5th level square fractal gasket in my lab book. That left me with almost 40 minutes to ignore the prof... Man, if I have just one more course introduce me to semiconductors just one more time, I'll lose it.

In other news, I got MatLab today. More importantly, I tried out SolidWorks today. SolidWorks has the easiest to use CAD interface I have ever see. On par with Google's 3d modeling kit in ease of use, but immansely powerful. Should the opportunity present itself, please give it a try. It makes that painful CAD work darn near fun.

I sure hope class ends soon.


Ooooooh, I feel your pain. What does a 5th level square fractal gasket look like?
Class just ended and I am typing this in the rain, walking home.

The gasket is a square one. It is almost perfectly analogus to the triangle one (Serpinski's). I subdivided the square 5 times, so starting with a 3x3 grid, the center square is untouched. Each of the adjacent squares are then subdivided into 9 and the process repeats 4 more times. The one I drew isn't very good, but I was slightly less bored at least.

-I'd also like to note the BB adapts its backlighting very well. Nice feature.
Doesn't Rose use SolidWorks?

If SolidEdge is a part of the package, I recall many a gripe that Brandt had with it.

What're you MATLABing?
I do not think I have access to Solid Edge. The key here is the space in the name. From what I can tell, Solid Edge is made by UGS, and SolidWorks is made by SolidWorks Corporation.

Bizarre, huh?

And I'll be MatLabin' for a class in finite element analysis. Woooo fun. Anyhow, it'll be a good thing to learn.
Hey, have you ever heard of semiconductors? They're these really cool materials with controllable conductivity, that enable a whole lot of the electronics we use today. By a chemical process called doping, you can create structures that, combined with electricity, allow computation!

That was mean.
