Earlier this year, I left Australian Scientific Instruments to take a job as Senior SHRIMP Specialist at Geoscience Australia. In between those jobs, I pushed a couple of bottom drawer manuscripts out into journal submission. One has already been published (see Geosonnet 42 for details and link). Others are currently in review or revision. So most of my writing energy is going there, not here. So don't expect a lot of blogular activity in the near future.
