Doing some work on the new Thunderhead WordPress based site today, and decided to use the ‘Events Calendar‘ plugin to manage all of the upcoming events that we are either interested in promoting or will be going to.
Anyway… I was using the sidebar widget that lists the events in a unordered list and found that the styles in the plugin and the way the list is built made the list look very different from the rest of my theme. The main culprit being the part where the list is built in the ec_calendar.class.php file of the plugin. Continue reading »
This is a great way to collect suggestions and to get a feeling for how these suggestions rate among users.
Randy later asked me how to get data from moderator for post processing. Unfortunately, there is not a straightforward way to do that directly through the moderator admin interface. But fortunately, there is a Moderator API that can be used to extract information from Moderator in JSON format. Yea!
So I am kind of interested in what this new feature has to offer…
This is a short demo video of the new immersed boundary method (IBM) that is being developed in FDS_6. The video shows a texture mapped ‘baseball’ sphere accelerating through air with a slight drop and a fixed rotation. This new method allows non-rectilinear geometry elements (&GEOM) to move through the computational domain. More information on IBM can be found here: http://sites.google.com/site/randymcdermott/publications
Here is the Input File to recreate this case yourself in FDS. You will need the file linked below and place it in ‘FDS5\bin\textures’ for the texture to map onto the sphere.
The video shows a ‘BOX’ moving through the domain, using the &GEOM namelist group feature.
The video is in two parts, the first part is looking at only velocities between 19.9 and 20.1 m/s, showing where the Box is. The second part of the video is showing the full velocity slice without any bounds applied.
This is a fantastic addition to the features of FDS and I am looking forward to its full implementation.
Down a bit in the comments I found a slight modification to the script by Graham Kirby that added a couple of nice features.
It was not a simple copy and paste from the comment text, so I fixed it and it works well now for me too.
I am attaching a zip file to this post that contains the Apple Script and two files one for the name/email list and the other as a sample message text file.
