A Badly Needed Site Update.
It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted a new article on Astronomy Aggregator, but I hope this kind of makes up for it. Last year I had the excuse of working full time and studying on my two days off, so the site didn’t get updated that much. This year I’ve been kind of hiding behind the work of studying in my final year.
In any event, I thought that it was time for a change – I should be posting more not only because I have a small hard core of people who like the site (which as somebody who has barely made ten posts in the last ten months gives me a very warm glow) but because I love the news coming out of the industry and the technological advances. Plus, you know, it acts as a distraction to studying.
So I have spruced the place up a bit, getting a new theme more suited to current technology since the old one was looking slightly dated (and a bunch of plugins weren’t being updated anymore). I hope you guys like the new look of the site and there will be more content soon.
One thing I’m looking to do is a series on my dissertation project, an experimental side-by-side comparison of different types of Aerospike nozzles. This will probably be spread across this site (theory) and another one of my sites that will go into the computational flow dynamics simulations.
In any event: we haven’t died! Stay tuned for more.
I’m so sorry for the massive backlog of posts.
I have to apologise to anybody who reads the site and still checks up on it from time to time; the last month and a half or so has been an incredibly busy time for me. A bunch of crises struck at the same time and no sooner did I have those sorted out before I started a new job and deadlines for the end of the semester appeared on the horizon.
As a result theres a large backlog of material that I’d previously earmarked for the site but havent had time to go through and put it up – which I will do directly. This means that there is a new tag for this sort of thing – the backlog tag, for things that are definitely newsworthy but are no longer current.
Hopefully I can get back into the swing of regular updates now that I have some spare time to devote to the site.
