Cleaning up things

I’ve been a little busy at the retirement front de-linking various work related references and what not and it isn’t as easy as one might assume. And unsurprisingly things happen, especially trying to link the blogging programs I use on the PC, so blogs will be sparse until I restore the system. As there is also a new PC arriving over the horizon, blogging will be light since I have adopted a new policy of having data residing on a separate NAS. As I will also be moving to a new domicile network design will also change from the very limited 4G wireless access to a hard wired ADSL service later in the year. I am limited to 25Gb per month and reducing traffic to bare minimum is essential.

Somehow I also managed to trash the blog and at the same time trying to work out why I have only 3Gb when I am paid for a premium account.

So please be patient while I unravel things 🙂

Update: Seems WordPress needs a little time to update things so things have stalled here.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
