In case anybody still checks this blog, and was wondering just what in the hell it is I do for a living...well here's a very small taste:

I have a lot of work left in order to perfect my techniques, but the long and short of it is that part of my research is to examine the morphological properties of engine deposits produced in my HCCI engine. This particular picture is actually one of deposits from an older piston running in a GDI (gasoline direct injection) configuration, mostly just to serve as practice. I'm actually more interested in structures on the nanoscale, but it is still somewhat worthwhile for the moment.

The Mickeroo throwing a huge flag at Roy

You know, I do tend to agree with a great deal of what's in that article...Roy has absolutely got to get his act together this year, and step up to be the defensive captain that he should be. I for one am tired of seeing some opposing receiver running around in the end zone after a long pass, and the shot panning to a confused Roy with shrugged shoulders after another blown coverage or bad angle taken.

As the anthropomorphic canine hero of old, Scooby-Doo, might say:


Belichick might be sttrrrugggling in the near future

So has anybody checked out Cuban's latest blog posting regarding the State of the Union for the Mavericks organization? Jason Kidd getting up the MVP level of be a little optimistic there, buddy. I almost get the feeling that he wants to keep the team very similar to its current structure, which I'm not sure is really going to work out. The Mavs have got to get more consistent defense in the paint (and some interior scoring would be nice, too).
