Happy New Year 2014!

I wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a Happy New Year, and hope that you all have had a great Holiday season.

In reviewing my WordPress “year in review” that all WordPress.com users get, I realized that I have somewhat neglected this blog over the past year – two posts were published. Not quite the frequency I intended. I did make one change: if you haven’t noticed already, you can now reach the blog at http://scienceattic.com (the old URL of http://scienceattic.wordpress.com will still work though).

My goal for 2014 is to revitalize this blog. I hope to devote a little more time to write about tech and science topics that interest me, and maybe a few random topics as well.

Take care and Happy New Year!

Diversions – Introducing The Wood Lab

wl_iconFor those who have read previous posts, you can figure out that my field is IT.  I clearly like science and technology.

But we are (or should be!) more than what we do for our occupation.  What do you do as a diversion – your creative outlet?

I used my last post on SawStop as a sort of segue into this post.  One of my diversions as a creative outlet is woodworking.  Now note that I am a very novice woodworker, but I hope to take this this craft to the next level.  It’s nice, after a day or week of working with technology, to work with a natural material such as wood in the hopes of creating something that is funtional and pleasing to the eye at the same time.

So, to document my experiences with woodworking – my learning experiences and shortcomings – I have launched a new blog specifically to my hobby of woodworking:  The Wood Lab.

A New Home Sweet Home

So Welcome to the new Science Attic, enjoy!
