Here, I'm following and commenting on all things nuclear, but I'll try to emphasize materials science. But I've got a day job, so don't expect too much.
It's your blog... handle comments whichever way you feel like. No need to explain or apologize.But watch out for the blur, in your interesting list above, between "educatonal" (please tell me about the tritium trick!) and "opinion" (by all means let's debate various fusion research programs).
Ohhhh! My first feedback! Thank you. The tritium trick will have to wait until after the "electron microscopy" entry in the "Experimental techniques in nuclear materials engineering" series.
It's been pointed out to me that using a cartoon character's screen name while disabling anonymous comments would be a pot//kettle//black situation. So let's try the "anonymous allowed, all moderated" paradigm. Please be aware that moderation will occur at most once per day, every other day might be more likely. Please be patient. (I also notice some FireFox related comment-leaving problems; perhaps Google is getting angry at Mozilla users?)
