So that’s what Mars looks like

In case you hadn't heard, Earth and Mars are the closest they've been to each other in 59,619 years — a mere 55.8 million kilometers (34.6 million miles) apart.  If you have a telescope or a pair of binoculars, you should be able to make out the rusty bright spot in the night sky with clarity that is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event (the next time Mars and Earth will be this close is in 2287 when the planets will actually be nearer each other than they are right now).

Site outage

My apologies for the site being down the last day or so.  Apparently my service provider had made a change and incorrectly entered the IP address of the site.  Don't feel bad — I couldn't get to it to make any updates.  This is life, I'm afraid, and people make mistakes (that's part of what makes us human).

Too tired

I realize I haven't updated the site much lately.  I have a lot going on right now and just haven't had much of a chance to work on it.  I am still alive, though, and I'm hoping to get back into some updates soon.  Sometimes life just gives you more to deal with than you really care to admit, which is where I am right now.
