Another Blogroll Update

Time for some more useful sites! In the blog category, welcome to Intermolecular, Natural Product Man, Experimental Error. And in the chemistry data section, I've added Synthetic Pages, Not Voodoo, and the Organic Chemistry Portal. And finally, I'd inexplicably left Ben Goldacre's Bad Science
off the blogroll, even though I've linked to it several times, so I've fixed that. Enjoy!

Goldacre may not be the grand old man of internet skepticism, but he's certainly something of a modern hub. My major introduction to blogs has been through him. (I do not recall, though, how you got landed with me. I thought I was reading you before Tenderbutton, which was Goldacred, but I honestly don't know how else I might have got here.)

I see Pharyngula is on the list as well (yay!), so I won't link to the Climategate video 'takedown'. Of course, I have my biases, but I was mildly surprised to have confirmed just how little seem to have been found there.

My supervisor died Friday sennight and I was at his funeral last Friday. Terrible way to meet people from uni again after my absence, and awful that I never got to talk to him again. But it was suggested to me that I might be able to get my ph.d. after all, if strings are pulled, and I put in the effort.

I'm receiving lots of encouragement, but I'm still pretty scared and worried. It's been three years, so most everything is gone from my brain. And add to that that I was on my way down into depression for about a year before everything just broke. It'll be hard work.

But I've been thinking about whether it might be possible to 'rediscover' my own labnotes in blog form - going through them, typing them up and annotating them day to day. Alternatively a wiki might be an idea (I think I saw that demonstrated on Cosmic Variance), but I thought I whine a bit here as well (as I have on every other blog), and ask if my betters in the world of chem have any good ideas.

Do you by any chance read the Planetary Blog? Emily's making a very nice Advent calendar.
