News is nearly converted

Okay, I've scrounged up all the old news posts I could find since 2005. Hopefully, they've all be fully converted. I'm not entirely sure how I want to handle the various time zones, etc. It may not really be worth the full generality.
I just registered MathCancer.org for the next ten years, in the hopes of creating a more stable web presence in the longer term. Hopefully, Google and the other search engines will catch on soon enough.
I see a big "dark spot" for most of 2009 and 2010. Ah, the Facebook era--I made most of my posts there. To sum up: 2009 was the year of writing huge grant proposals with Vittorio Cristini. (Submitted two PSOC centre grants, both approved. Submitted a few U01's, not approved. Submitted two or three ICBP centre grants, one approved. A few I've forgotten in the healing process. :-) About $1.8 million in new funding to the University of Texas.)
2010 was primarily the year of moving to Dundee and settling in. I did finish a few book chapters (Chapters 2, 6, and 10 of Cristini and Lowengrub, Cambridge University Press 2010), and wrapped up simulation and validation work for my current preprints under review at the Journal of Theoretical Biology (here and here).
So, that's my long absence of posts in 2009 and 2010. :-)
I hope to be more active in developing my content this year. I'm off to a great start with my preprints, and hope to roll out more information on my open source work in the next couple of months.
Tomorrow, I'm meeting with a great group at Ninewells Hospital to start up a new DCIS modelling project. More on that tomorrow, I hope.
