This blog will self-destruct in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 …

I have been blogging since January 2004 but of late my heart hasn’t been in it. So I’m taking the opportunity of a new school year to hang up my shield and move on. I may return someday, either here or elsewhere, but for the foreseeable future, you can consider me a non-blogger. Best wishes and good luck to all the readers and bloggers I have met over the years.

  1. Oh dear. I hope you won’t disappear from the blogosphere.

    Should you want to write the occasional post, just ask and I’ll happily give you a guest slot (either on Deep Thoughts & Silliness or Scientopia).

  2. I certainly feel overwhelmed with the start of classes tomorrow. Give yourself a nice long break – you are welcome to guest post wherever I end up.

    And I promise to get out to your neck of the woods before we both become professors emeritus.

    All the best in everything you do, mate!

  3. Bummer, but I totally understand. I think it’s just sheer stubbornness that keeps me from closing up shop. See you elsewhere around the ‘tubes.

  4. Well that’s too bad. Sorry to see you close up the place, but it’s your decision.
    Good luck in whatever you choose to do next.

  5. Nooooo! If ever you want to get something out that’s Darwin-related, I’d gladly put it up on The Dispersal of Darwin for you…

  6. Shoot straight, you bastard. Don’t make a mess of it.

    Thanks for everything; you’ll certainly be missed.

  7. I will miss this spot.
    By the way, we visited the reopened Irish Natural History Museum in Dublin 2 weeks ago. What fun – I would love to have that resource for my comparative vertebrate anatomy courses. I was also fascinated by the glass sea slugs and other marine invertebrates.
    Best of luck.

  8. Fare thee well. I hope you’ll post on PT or other places as inspiration strikes. In other words, as others are screaming, please don’t leave us entirely. Best to you and your students. Go Cats.

  9. If we all stand around our computers applauding for long enough, will you come back for a curtain call? The point being –> Thank You.

  10. Good! That means that you will be popping in and posting more at ERV and After The Bar Closes!

    Well, not really good, but silver lining and all that.

    Thanks for all the words and ideas at your various blogs.

  12. Thanks for this lovely blog. I’ll miss it all but perhaps most of all will be the critters you brought to our attention.

    As Garrison Keillor sings so often on his show, “So long, it’s been good to know ya’, so long….”

    I look forward to your scholarship.

    Best wishes and thanks again for all of it.
