Welcome to The Molecular Universe Blog!

Having restarted The Molecular Universe after a year or two off, I thought that now would be a good time to start up a blog as well!

Naturally, this involves an interesting search for suitable a suitable blogging engine, and after checking for a day or two on the various options, I selected 'NanoBlogger'.

NanoBlogger is a blogging engine written in the Bash scripting language. It produces a blog which is composed of simple html pages, so there is no database, or server side technology to maintain. The downside is that adding comments to the blog is not completely trivial - so for now, please email me at the address on the navigation panel if you have comments or questions.

One of the things that I was worried about was how the pages would look in a variety of browsers. So, I tested appearances with http://browsershots.org which uses a bank of web clients and screenshots of the results, to give a sense of how different browsers render the pages on a site. So far, the results are quite encouraging!
