Today is the last day that ScienceBlogs will exist. Sometime today the site will go into read-only mode. A few days later, it will disappear completely from the Internet. It’s a sad thing to contemplate after all these years. Whatever happened later, I will always be grateful for the start in blogging I got there.
But that’s the past. The future is here:
Some work remains to be done with the site, and I am not ready to produce new posts for it yet while these odds and ends remain to be taken care of. Due to a confluence of events in addition to still having to tweak the blog to my satisfaction, I am not sure if I will be able to manage to produce new material until Monday or Tuesday. (I’d rather that things be nailed down before I start writing again.) However, don’t let that stop you from exploring, kicking the tires, commenting, etc. That’ll help me figure out what the problems are and how things are working.
I will try to make sure that comments from the last couple of weeks transfer over, but I can’t guarantee it given the tight timeline here. Either way, I don’t recommend commenting here any more. it is also possible that some comments could get lost over at the new blog.
Of course, if something happens that so gets under my skin (or amuses me) before then, I might not be able to restrain myself, WordPress be damned.
