Blogroll Update

Email This Entry

Posted by Derek

Some may have noticed that the blogroll at left has been modernized a bit. I've tried to separate out the chemistry and drug industry sites - please let me know if yours has come down on the wrong side of the line.

And more sites have been added, as the relentless wave of chemical blogging continues to crest. Some of these sites are young, and others I just had neglected to link. Welcome to Occam's Blog, Pharma's Cutting Edge (the renamed Crownstone blog), the QDIS Blog, Curly Arrows, Thesis Sprint (which I hope can eventually get renamed once everything is done), Molecule of the Day, Hdreioplus, Levorotation, The Crimson Canary, the Chemistry World Blog from the folks who are now carrying a regular column of mine, Totally Mechanistic, The Synthetic Referee, Regulatory Affairs of the Heart, and Synthetic Environment!

Off topic, but your RSS feed doesn't seem to work at the moment (it was working two days ago, and my other RSS feeds work just fine).

Cheers! Ian (and good luck in the job stakes)

Tangenting off the topic: Do you (or any readers) happen to know of any fluid mechanics blogs? I know there's a fair bit of crossover between chemistry and multiphase flows (which is my field), so I'm hoping some of them might be showing up on the edge of your radar. I haven't had much luck at all finding anything -- which seems somewhat odd; why so tremendously many chemistry blogs, and no fluids blogs?

The RSS feed is still down for me.

Just had a look at

It returns
XML Parsing Error: no element found
Line Number 1, Column 1:

When that happened to me, some MSweird specific code had snuck into my RSS index file. I'm viewing this via Firefox Is there anyone at Corante that can hack into the RSS file and check it?
