New Website Address!

So, a good deal arose at a good time and we are shifting this blog from wordpress-blog-hosted to self-hosted … hooray! Right now, you shouldn’t notice too many changes except of course in the very important web address. Our new site lives at:

So, this week I will endeavor to remind everyone many times to change your bookmarks and feeds to the new site and all posts after this one next week will be on both sites, and then after that, we’ll stop using this site and switch exclusively to the new one. I don’t yet know about e-mail subscriptions, but I will look into that. UPDATE: Email subscriptions now exist on the new site!

Of the changes you might see, it does cost monies to host, so we will try to find some ways to make that money back, but I promise to be careful and Dawn is crazy about design and layout, so she won’t let any ads detract from our appearance. We’re still learning the process though, so this will be fun and exciting and new!

Thanks everyone for getting us to this point!

Either way, I made this list of my Top Ten favorite books that I read before high school that were definitely related to my geekish ways.

Future Timewaster: Amaranthine Kickstarter

We’re starting a little something new here on the blog, which is to highlight new games, including some that aren’t quite out yet. Game players tend to be creative sorts, and some are creative enough to not only improve the games they have, but to try and create whole new games. So, when we run across someone who has written or created a new game that sounds great, we’ll let you know about it so you can bookmark it as a future timewaster!

Mathematical Monday: The Genetic Code

I’ve been working in the past two days on a lecture about DNA transcription. For those who don’t remember their basic biology, transcription is part of the process of getting from the genetic code in DNA to functional proteins in your body. How much do you remember about the genetic code? I will remind you of this much, there are quite a few numbers involved!
