G’day, and good morning from my side of the globe. This week was interesting, and at least on my end is bound to be more interesting still. I’ve noticed a little bit of discussion going on about the strength of the evidence for recent claims of the discovery of gravitational waves, here. I’ve decided to post semi-regularly on my blogs, linked to here as The Collect Call, I am Troythulu, The Impudent Algorithm, the Gods of Terra, My Horrific Elegance, The Hypershard Dispatches, We are the Wavetouched, the Checkerboards of the Gods, and The Exohuman Journal.
These more specific-material sites (only three are general purpose, including this one) should help out with any reluctance I may have on occasion to post something, and help improve my proficiency at writing. It’s been a long time since the clunky verbiage of my early post-2008 entries, and there’s work to be done with that still.
This weekend, I’m having guests over to help pass the time, especially teh Queen of teh Fluffies, Willow, who’s appearance will no doubt fill Rockykins and Mr. Eccles with feline joy.
It’ll be a busy weekend, with the launching on the Algorithm of a series of ongoing narratives/reviews of Indra’s Pearls, a math text that reads like adventure fiction that I’m currently studying from. We’ll see how that turns out, but I’ll be posting installments each Monday or thereabouts.
