Well, it's probably as good a time as any to explain what on earth has been happening with this blog and such forth over the numerous dark months of inactivity. As always with many things in life, things that occur in the "real world" often interfere with other plans that one has for things online. Unfortunately for me, I was intending to have a new website up and running with many of my previous posts updated and revised. This very obviously never happened, primarily due to a wide array of things getting in the way of my plans. The main reason that nothing has happened just yet is that I've been running around sorting out my PhD for the past couple of months (an unbelievable amount of paperwork is involved!).
Now that everything appears to be in order and that I'm starting to get re-interested in blogging again, means that with some luck I should be moving to my new website at some point soon. This of course is all conditional on other things, such as my initial workload in the lab and other things that could potentially interfere.
I do apologise for the long stretch of absence and general lack of blogging on my part.
