I've been getting a lot of mail lately concerning my biology
simulations, so I thought I'd give an update on the status.
Currently Anyone can Anonymously ftp demonstrations from handel.cs.colostate.edu
They are in a directory /pub. The filename is called biosims.zip.
This is all that is available at the moment. When I first announced
these programs I received quite vote of disaproval because I need to
charge a fee to cover costs. I put everything concerning this project
on a far back shelf until I can do it properly, meaning putting
together some bound users guides and study aids. Including a text
readme file with the programs just isn't good enough. The simulations
without a users guide are quite useless because they are not animated
textbooks. They are more like lab experiments in which one may
try different things to learn basic principles.
When I can afford to spend time and $$ printing off and sending the
manuals, I'll try to get back to everyone who has expressed interest.
(I apologize to those I haven't replied to yet)
I'll be back at iowa sometime in june, my email address will
colburn at tessa.iaf.uiowa.edu.
If anyone seriously wants to use any programs for a course
give me a call and we can work something out. I probably won't have
a chance to reply to email since it is the end of the semester and
finals are here.
