Guide to the Universe Blog

The Guide to the Universe Blog is my "update noticeboard" for this website.

It lets you know whenever any new Web pages, or additions to existing ones appear on the Guide to the Universe and, I can assure you, things are happening all the time!

To subscribe to my Guide to the Universe Blog (no e-mail necessary), right-click on the orange RSS button (see bottom buttons to the left) and then paste the URL into your RSS reader. (You may need to download one first. All the buttons found underneath the orange button are feedreaders.)

Don't worry - it's easy! And, if you later decide you don't want it, you can delete the feed.

Alternatively, if you already keep a personalised home page on "Google", "My Yahoo!", "My MSN", "Newsgator", or "Bloglines", just click on the appropriate button.

If you want a more detailed explanation of what an RSS feed is, click on the question mark above the orange button.

I think you'll find the potential of the RSS feed surprising - and enjoyable!

Solar Eclipse

If you're lucky enough to live in the UK, don't forget that you'll be able to witness that rare event, a solar eclipse tomorrow. From the UK, it won't be total, but over 90% of the Sun will be obscured. The further north you are, the better. As regards a time, in London for example, it'll begin at around 8:25am GMT and last for 2 hours 16 minutes. The weather forecast isn't very promising, unfortunately, but it's likely to get quite dark.

Site Inactivity

Hi everyone. Just in case anyone's wondering why there's not really been anything happening on the site since well before Christmas, perhaps I'd better explain. I've developed a cataract in my right eye that eventually became so bad it made reading a computer screen well nigh impossibe, because of the glare. I hope to have cataract surgery within the next few weeks, after which, hopefully, normal service will be resumed. I hope you all understand and will bear with me.
