Behind the scenes here at the ScienceBorg, a major upgrade is about to begin. As of 1pm EST, there will be no more posts, and commenting will be disabled until further notice. This won’t really matter to us Brits, since in proper time that works out as 6pm and we’ll already be down the pub. Of course, the Overlords have rather wisely not told us how long it’s going to be before everything is up and running again: the best guesstimate is Saturday evening, which is hopefully before some of my fellow Sciblings snap due to blogging withdrawal and go on a trolling rampage. Watch out, Nature Networks!
Let’s just hope this upgrade fares better than the one to the West Coast Main Line, and you will soon witness the power of this fully armed and operational blogging collective.
