Great minds think alike I guess :-D.

Speaking of physics, you've no doubt checked into VPython, orginally
developed to support study of physics using real time graphics routines a=
Carnegie-Mellon Univ, as I understand the history:  http://www.vpython.or=

Seems to me the interface between physics and programming is becoming
richer (and yet more affordable) by the day.  Makes me nostalgic for life=
as an undergraduate (except in my day we had few PCs, no Linux, and
no Python -- but I've got all that now, and a day job to boot).
