The Astronomicon

with 9 comments

For those of you who don’t know, The Astronomicon was the home of the now defunct Shark Tank.  I have been reading Astro’s musings, rants and Anime (though I’m not sure why) posts for a couple years – good stuff !  If you read my December 29, 2006 post it will give a very brief overview of the Tank.  Astro is very busy pursuing his Engineering degree (Masters ?) and has decided to put his site “on hold”.

I completely understand his reasons, and he certainly seems (lately) to have not been able to post as often as in the past – life is busy !  Astro knows where his focus should be, so if his site was a distraction he did the right thing.  All I can say is that, at some point, I hope he will grace us once again with his insightful and entertaining posts.  Thanks, Astro…

  3. Snake : Probably not – I really don’t follow baseball too closely. You should take the Tribe and keep that “hometown” connection.

  4. Sk8 : Had a lot of fun in the Tank – hopefully it will be back before the upcoming season. FYI – ND picked up the top QB recruit in the country – Jimmy Clausen.

    (emo myspace cutter – too funny !)

  5. I did chuckle at emo myspace cutter, may go in my repitwa. ND only needs a little more to break into the super elite, they certainly have the recruiting.

  6. ND certainly still needs help on defense. And you have to know where I live to fully understand why “e-m-c” is so friggin’ hilarious to me. Lakewood is very counter-culture with a population density of around 10,000 per sq mi. We have a heavy mix of “emc’s”, GLBT, Goth and Punk – you name it. Throw in a population of around 20% foreign-borns (mostly arabic and Eastern Europe) and this is really quite the place ! Stop by when you’re in town…

  8. And snake is right, either edit or change your header. Too hard for those not in the know to decipher what it is.

  9. DFM : I’m working on the posts – I’ve got a list of a dozen or so (currently) I want to post, but only if I like the content. Coincidentally, I was writing one while you were commenting above.

    As for my header, for now I guess I’ll just go back to text only. On my widescreen laptop it looks good, but when I view it on my CRT at work it’s all “out of sorts”.
