A big thank you to everyone who has been supporting this blog. I will try my best to keep it updated, although I have been quite occupied with other matters lately, so updates may be less frequent for a while longer… (And I’m not really able to determine how long that will be at this point.)
Oh, and if you live in America,
* Happy 4th of July! * :)
