Revisiting Catenaries and Googlewhack

My Catenary Experiment webpage has been sneakily linked from wikipedia, and it comes up first for a few different searches. To make a long story short, some Washington State HS teacher found my site and had his calc class repeat my experiment, the results of which are now hanging up in their "school common room." Thanks Rick for sending me the pictures:

In other news, my googlewhack research has taken poster form at an NJIT Math Conference, checkout my abstract in the big list here (page 9). You can also learn everything about it on my website here, or go straight to the fancy PDF poster here.
I was lucky to get a great location and the pretty pictures didn't fuzzify like they do on all the other posters.
