Preparing for the start of school has had me busy lately, as has a personal project.
I've just about finished a rebuild of my class site, the new version should be posted within the next two days (as I write this the new version exists only on my local disk.) I'm also preparing the early handouts and organizing my class notes.
Also, my daughters and I are making some telescope mirrors. We've just transitioned from polishing to figuring. So a lot of my spare time has been spent hanging over a Foucault tester looking at shadows.
So the blog is neither dead nor forgotten, just off to one side for a bit. Stay tuned!
