Biology and Astrophysics: Closer than you may think!

August 31, 2004 8:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

Spoiler Warning! This is actually a sneaky continuation of my last tirade on the mathematical education of biologists. One of my favorite information gathering exercises is to go the Web, type "mathematics + biology" into a search engine, and peruse the results (usually 50 to 200 returns, depending upon the engine).

Have you ever wondered how all of the information is gathered for the large Web databases? After all, in most cases an organization can't afford an army of people to go out, surf, and index the Web. Even if they could, it would take more than a small army to stay current with the existing Web, let alone keep up with its growth! In most cases, this data collecting, which is sometimes called aggregating, is done through the use of spiders...

FTP Clients Revisited: Essential tools for moving data over the Internet

July 31, 2004 8:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

Last month, we took a look at some Windows utilities that can be very useful on a daily basis. This month, let's take a look at another set of utilities that, while you may not need to use them as frequently, are still essential tools for anyone moving data over the Internet or doing Web development. As you might have guessed, I'm talking about the frequently overlooked FTP clients.
