8 Years!

Heh, managed to let the site slid for almost two months. I couldn't let the month of March completely pass me by without getting something up, though! This week marks the 8th anniversary of this site; I am still trying to wrap my head around that. I honestly figured that I would have completely lost interest in this project years ago!

So, I offer the usual apologies for the lack of updates the last couple of months. There has been a lot going on in my private and personal life that has kept me otherwise occupied, however. Now that the spring term for my masters classes is almost over, I'm hoping that I will have a little more time to put into a couple of longstanding "wish list" updates for the site. Specifically, there are a number of new updates I would like to make to the various gaming sections, and I feel like it is about time for another rant ;).

World events have been pretty crazy, too. I can't believe how rapidly events have been unfolding in the Middle East. That whole region has always been unstable, but now it looks like someone has put a match to the tinderbox. I can only hope and pray that the ultimate outcome for the people living there is a good one. As if this crisis wasn't enough, the details surrounding the earthquake and tsunami in Japan have been heartbreaking. Thankfully, it appears that my host family from my stay there are alright. Also, my nuclear training allows me to great the sensationalist news about the damaged Japanese nuclear power plants with amusement rather than alarm. To be sure, it is a serious situation, but the consequences of the nuclear contamination released from the Fukushima Daiichi plant pale in comparison to the tens of thousands killed by the tsunami.

Today's update is actually one I meant to post last month; it is a selection of pictures I posted when I visited Cape Canaveral a while back. I got the opportunity to tour several historic launch sites, so enjoy!
