The sound of a bass commixes
with church bells chiming in bluesy discord.
Rather than comics," he continues, "I prefer the word commix, to mix together, because to talk about comics is to talk about mixing together words and pictures to tell a story." (3) Moreover, Spiegelman explains, "The strength of commix lies in [its] synthetic ability to approximate a 'mental language' that is closer to actual human thought than either words or pictures alone." (4) Here he also cites the words of what he calls the patron saint of commix, Swiss educational theorist and author Rodolphe Topffer (1799--1846): "The drawings without their text would have only a vague meaning; the text without the drawings would have no meaning at all.
In its self-negating logic, Spiegelman's commix also suggests itself as a pointedly anti-redemptory medium that simultaneously makes and unmakes meaning as it unfolds.
These activities have resulted in the development of the COMMIX  family of codes, which have evolved in response to the needs of the new reactor technologies and as the capabilities of advanced computer architectures and processing speeds have increased.
The codes in the COMMIX series are 3D transient, global analysis models that allow the prediction of temperature, velocity, pressure and phase distribution in separate power plant components (e.g., heat exchangers or reactor plena) or in a gourp of coupled components such as a reactor primary system.
COMMIX has the potential to reduce costs and factory rejection rates of cast metal products, such as engine blocks and aircraft components, according to Bill Sha, manager of Argonne's COMMIX project.
"COMMIX will help to advance metal casting from a trial-and-error art to a science with a sound theoretical base and growing body of solid, technical knowledge," Sha said.
The Commix 32 makers standards-based LAN-WAN interconnections by being compatible with Ethernet, TCP/IP, and DEC/LAT on the LAN portion, and X.25 on the WAN side.
Server/gateway, such as the Commix 32, provide directly attached terminals or PCs with gateway access to the X.25 network, including PAD functions.

At North Carolina State University, a school of about 24,000 students in Raleigh, they're checking out Infotron's Commix
32 as a way of linking some 200 users in six departments to a campus-wide Ethernet supporting TCP/IP and LAT.
Felix Da Housecat tops the bill, joined by Aeroplane (DJ set), Ocelot (Live), Revo, High Contrast, Commix

CHIBUKU Shake Shake is back on Saturday September 15 with LTJ Bukem MC Conrad, Justin Robertson, Kissy Sell Out, High Contrast, Commix
and more to be announced.
