G’day! Things have been going well this week, and I’ve gotten finished with six more lectures-worth of notes, and will start on more today, whether I go out this afternoon or stay home.
I’ve fully opened up the most recent six blogs I’ve created, and begun posting on each, so it’s good that I’ve got that taken care of. That’s why I didn’t publish this entry or Sunday’s last week, with preparing the new blogs.
With the division of labor more clearly defined between all ten sites, there will be less in off-topic posting, less worry about where to post what and how often, though there are those three generalist blogs, including this one. Thanks so much to those who’ve subscribed to the new sites, and to the others. I really appreciate that.
I’ve got two presentations of a new simulation of the universe, one in the links just below, and in this morning’s video feature by SpaceRip explaining it. Enjoy, and may you have a brilliant weekend!
