I work in a physics lab where we do research on fusion energy and find industrial applications of high power acoustic cavitation. I write OS X software to visualize output of physics simulations and to automate calculations for spherical systems. I also write programs in Igor Pro to automate experiments, collect data, and visualize the collected data.

I have a long history (since before MIDI) in computer music. I wrote the first commercially available MIDI voice librarian for DOS. It did not make me rich.

I play around a little with OpenCV under OS X.

I used to be in a band called The Universal Steve. We put out two albums: E Pluribus Esteban and Ryer Island.

revised How can I update my OS X 10.5.8?
MAC means Media Access Control. Mac is short for Macintosh. Also, capitalization.

If it's a bundle, Show Package Contents will show up in the context menu. If not, it won't. You can also look at it in Terminal. A bundle's structure isn't hidden there. If it's a bundle it shows up as a directory.
