New Look

Hey, you’ve probably noticed a few big changes to the look of the website. I’ve been moving to wordpress, though at the moment most of the old content is still to be found where it was before whilst I transfer things across from the old platform.

So, if you’re looking for older posts about famous Scottish scientists or funny jokes for students of chemistry, you’ll still find them at

Or, if you want to do some shopping, check out my Amazon shop.

Of course, if you’ve any feedback on this sudden change of look – let me know. Meantime, thanks for your patience as I migrate content into wordpress πŸ™‚

  1. I love the fact that your twitter and rss logo’s bounce on roll over! πŸ™‚

  2. Well, after much head-scratching and ‘Will I? Won’t I?’ I’ve pulled the blog on the old blog (which ran on B2 evolution) and all the ‘old’ pages, including the Amazon shop too.

    Hopefully, all those who frequented those pages will find their way around this new ‘wordpress’ site even more happily πŸ™‚
