Miscellany

Well, if anybody new wrote a comment to this blog over the past couple of days, I just deleted it.  I had 1055 comments to moderate, and I just couldn’t face going through them all.  (Comment #1055 had the subject line “church tits”, to give you an idea of the general, ahem, thrust of them).

Meanwhile, I haven’t blogged much this week because not much is going on.  I’m still working on plans for the New Orleans trip (BTW, I plan to leave on July 13, so this is still a ways off).

I injured myself somehow doing squats yesterday — I have a sharp pain on the left side of my upper back.  It’s probably a muscle pull, although it could be a cracked rib for all I know.  I’ll wait and see if it continues to bother me.  It already feels substantially better today, so I’m guessing it’s nothing too major.  I’m still riding my bike to work, and it doesn’t hurt when I’m on the bike.

Meanwhile, tomorrow is the final exam for my presession Molecular Genetics class — I’m glad to get away from the set schedule, anyway.  I do start teaching an online course next week, but it’s only 4 weeks, and I don’t have to show up anywhere at any specific time.

    Yeah, I wanted to put your mind at ease. I forget that fans are anxiously awaiting my next blog entry. ;-)

    I also told him he needs a Google gadget, but so far he’s being resistant.

  4. Allen says:

    Yeah, but read this.

    I already did read that. I am a scholar of the internets, Dad.

    Erin: You get used to church tits when you have WordPress. Dad: Go to the plug-ins section of your blog admin panel and activate “Akismet.” It will drastically reduce your comment spam.

    Thanks, Cabell. I had to get a wordpress.com account (so I’m slow, whatever), and I’ve activated Akismet. We’ll see how it does.

    Well, I did just learn about Akismet like last week myself.
