Meta: He's Not Dead, He's Pining for the Fjords

All's been quiet here for nearly a month now, and the reason is work. Doing a PhD and being a researcher means I have a highly non-uniform workload. Sometimes I have very little to do. Sometimes I have way too much to do. In this case, I've had a lot for the past month and a bit. I had a week of work in Germany, followed by the Easter holiday, two weeks of illness due to tonsillitis followed by a week of of catching up from missing two weeks, then a week of crunch work in Germany again before we deployed some hardware for testing in a beam, then a week of testing everything in the beam. All while teaching a lab module and taking two modules myself. I currently have a week more work on our testbeam and if the experience so far is representative, I'll have very little free time for working on anything for this blog for the next week or so.

Another reason is that I've already posted a lot of the content I had already worked on before starting the blog. Most of my backlog of content is already posted. In addition, a lot of the stuff I'm working on right now is bigger and meatier. It's taking longer because there's more of it.

So there'll be more posts. Eventually.
