Expanding My Blog Horizons

About two weeks ago now, I got a task at work to do something I already do a fair amount of: writing a blog post. You see, the Joint Astronomy Centre has a blog that we use to keep interested users of our data reduction software up to date. I recently finished up my project that provides users more information (in the form of plots) about the observations taken on a particular night, and was asked to write a post on the blog (“Pipelines and Archives”) to explain it.

It probably won't be very informative if you aren't one of the cadre of scientists who actually uses the software, but it has some pretty pictures. (At least I think they're pretty; they're some of the automatically-generated graphs I spent two weeks working on.) If you're interested, you can check the post out here.

Also, although I haven't had time to finish it yet, I'm working on a post about the trip to Emesine Cave I took back on Good Friday. I've got a good number of pictures to sort through so it might take me a while, but I hope to have it up sometime this week.
