Just Thinkin has moved.

So it’s been WordPress.com and 130 posts or so and now it’s time to move into my own WordPress install. Kinda’ like moving from an apartment into your first home which means all the problems of ownership (except at the server end of things) are now mine but on the other hand…I can fix them as well.

It also makes me free to mess things up as I see fit thus giving me badly needed training on what not to do when configuring my own blog site and for any readers I might have, a whole lot of laughs.

So for awhile I’ll put the first part of a new post here with a link to the new site and after the new site’s rank is back up I’ll stop doing that as well. This post will always be at the top.

Meanwhile, here’s the link to the new home of “Just Thinkin”:

All past post have already been transferred over but like in any move some things get left behind and as such, all the previous comments seem to have evaporated into thin virtual air. Such is life. Plenty of time for more comments on this, that, and the other thing.

Many thanks to WordPress.com for hosting this small portion of my life.

See ya’ at the new site.

Sneak Peek!

Hello all.

I’ve got a secret…

If you want to know what it is…

Take a look over here (don’t fret now, it’s safe enough).

It’s not quite ready yet but I think it’s pretty cool.

Sneeze a “C” cell?

My lady turned me on to a story about the latest development in the battery improvement area. Virus built batteries.

Here’s the news article from Gizmodo

Viruses Engineered to Make Batteries

“Researchers have engineered viruses to attract metals and spin them into battery components.
Modifying viral genes so the outside viral layer would bind with certain metal ions, they found that incubating the virus in a cobalt chloride solution produced nanowires that work as positive electrodes.
The AP said that the scientists introduced a bit of gold for the desired electrical effects, but we all know that they were proud and just wanted to add a little bling.

Though there’s obviously no hope for human survival in the face of such intelligent and industrious obligate intracellular parasites, we can at least rest assured that in the grim future of Hello Bacteriophage, the war machine will be powered by tiny cute little lithium ion battery electrodes.”

So the next time you come down with the flu it might actually turn into a fairly powerful subject.
