pwned: HIV envelope protein gp120

From today's Science Daily:

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) researchers at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston believe they have uncovered the Achilles heel in the armor of the virus that continues to kill millions.

It's a quick article that's accessible to people who didn't get their undergrad in microbiology or who have forgotten their Greek mythology. Go read it.

Wouldn't it be nice to smack this bastard of a virus in the jumblies once and for all.

You know, I really love Texas. I lived in Houston for 2 years and now Austin for 3 and it is so wonderful that we have some of the greatest medical minds and instutions in the world. It makes me proud to think what they contribute to the world where I merely deploy software.
