Unfounded Speculations

particleshock.com is six years old

Another year has gone by in what feels like only a matter of weeks. This marks the sixth anniversary of PARTICLESHOCK.com and regretfully I haven’t made much progress blogging on a regular basis. It feels like I make the same promise to myself every year, that I will create and publish new content on a regular basis. Maybe this will be the year I finally make good on that promise.
