You May Have Noticed

February 14, 2007

I'm pulling some new stuff on here. Blogs with pictures are a lot more fun than blogs with just endless rants about why Jimmie Johnson sucks. Or why Kelvin Sampson doesn't. Or why when Led Zeppelin was on a bunch of stuff, they sang about Hobbits. Or pretty much damned anything.

I also made some of those infamous minor changes, mostly just shifting things around. I figure people would want to read OTHER blogs before finding out more about my boring ass life (also a fine blog), so I relegated myself to the bottom (in no large part because my short bio is not exactly a compelling read). And I've added some label groupings, so that if you cruise in from and want a book update (since Cheeseking almost singlehandedly ruined the book forum by being a whiny punk, thus causing me to effectively give the site the finger and head off into the sunset) on either the Boar War, King of Thistles or King of Shadows, you can just click on the updates link or the books link and you'll be taken right to the latest in what I've spewed onto a screen. Lou Two, I hope this helps.

Sorry for the absence. I figured people were tired of reading my random thoughts. Plus, I was coping with the pain associated with the sudden realization that I suck at Buchwald chemistry.

I look forward to the book updates.

Sorry, I didn't realize that I should/could go back and add in the labels on older posts. I did a handful this morning, but now I have to go off and figure out which other easy palladium coupling I'm not going to be able to do this week.

I'll have more of the older posts labeled later today.

I also need to comment on someone's very nice write up on hops chemistry.

Mmm...palladium...can you spare a spatula-tip of tetrakis?

Chemgeek said...

My colleague has some. I dump a bit in an envelope and address it to:

Be sure to flush that envelope with argon first.

I suppose I could. For our Buchwalds, we're using Pd2[dba]3 and palladium (II) acetate, so the tetrakis is just hanging around. But it's still pretty yellow.
