Silo now available on MacPorts

Scientific computing developers rejoice. If you want your code to output files readable by LLNL's VisIT, there's a good chance you use the Silo library to do it. Well, if you use MacPorts, you can now download and compile silo without hassle on a Mac. I submitted a port file for Silo this morning, and the great volunteers at MacPorts had it cleaned up and in their repository by the end of the day. Now all you need to do is sudo port selfupdate && sudo port install silo, and you're good to go.
