Suggestions...

Submitted by theman on Fri, 02/23/2018 - 02:34

Rarely do I stop and read the comments that people post on my site. Years ago I did, but my lack of free time and, perhaps, interest had gotten between me and your feedback. I had grown tired of the "please check out my site" cheap SEO links. Call me jaded...

Tonight I took a little time to read them as a part of my "what stays and what goes" process during my site's upgrade. I was pleasantly surprised to find they weren't all SPAM but some were valid observations and suggestions.

Thank you.

I won't guarantee that I will: 1) see them all, 2) use each of them, or 3) send a reply to the original commenters, but know that I am thankful to have the type of insightful, sharing readers who will take time to write me even when I haven't reciprocated. You all rock!!

New site coming...

Correction: Did I ever mention that Drupal is a really good CMS that is easy to manage? Instead of re-inventing the wheel (something I have neither the time nor the patience for anyway...) this site is staying here and getting its own (long overdue) focused attention. And a new, dedicated, secure email account hosted on ProtonMail

Evolution: it has worked for millennia.My turn...

 

My project this weekend is to redevelop stuartlathrop.com into something I like again. Will it be quick? Will it be complete? Will it be all that and then some? Our cat's meowing. This won't be that …

But it will have some nice new features. As always, coming soon…

Preparation...

We are all getting prepared — and very excited — for Monday's Complete Solar Eclipse!

First and most important point: you absolutely need to protect your eyes! This doesn't mean that you have to spend a fortune: the American Astronomical Society has assembled a complete list of resources: https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters.

If you can't watch it first-hand, many PBS stations will be broadcasting an

Myths...

While Linda recuperates I'm going through my mail, especially noting things I'd previously marked to share. Many lately have come from PragerU, focused on dispelling many misperceptions and outright lies. Here's another PSA…
