The goal of this site is to eventually provide some form of outline to projects i have been involved in, so that others that might want to accomplish a similar task will have some form of shoulder to stand on. From observation, the biggest hurdle in jumping into a project is the uncertanty of the outcome. Hopefully this can serve as some form of foundation.
If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to email your local professor. Its there job and purpose to provide intelligence (if you pay them or not).
