I thought it was time I let some air in around here, chased the dust and spiders' webs out, put the mothballs away and so on.
I see that the last time I posted before today was very nearly five years ago. I try to comfort myself by reminding myself that in that time I've finished my PhD, moved to a different university in a different country, written a book and -- oh yes -- got married.
Future posts will follow at intervals shorter than five years. I hope.
