The Big Crunch will resume updates starting January 16th, 2013. (This, of course, depends on the world not ending on December 21, 2012, but I think a perusal of TBC will tell you how much credence I give doomsayers.) Thanks for your patience while I travel during the holidays and enjoy time with family. Until next time, be sure to sign up for the monthly email dispatch. Have a great holiday season!
