Update on why there are no updates

| No TrackBacks
Hi ESTEST users and community.

I wanted to give you an update as to why there aren't many updates coming out of the ESTEST project lately. Truthfully, it is because I have graduated from the University of California Davis and have found employment at Electronic Arts Inc. I am still serving as system administrator for the ESTEST project and will continue to maintain all websites and user requests. I would like to continue to work on ESTEST as an open source project. I believe in an open source platform for distribute electronic structure knowledge.

Short URLs to ESTEST Plugins

| No TrackBacks

The thing about HTML is that some POST data can be GET data. This allows us to inline the input to ESTEST Plugins and encode a particular post-processing in a URL that can be copy/paste. These URLs can't be too long because of the HTML GET limit; but these can still be too long to read. Therefore we've implemented a script to shorten these URLs to ESTEST Plugins using goo.gl. Just click the button in the input_form page of most plugins

Go ahead give these links a try

http://goo.gl/gimrZ (SiO2 energy versus volume fit)

http://goo.gl/WdXDQ (Si band structures by Qbox and Quantum Espresso)

http://goo.gl/DKSMJ (Fe density of states)
