Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you had a nice celebration (no matter if it was the 24th, 25th or will be the 6th).
There will be a few more dry days on my blog. I'll be gone to Austria's snowless mountains. Snowless thanks to the greenhouse effect . That means no snowboarding for Christmas break .
What's coming up next? I am thinking of talking about one or two more molecules. Visualise their structure in PyMOL or POVRay and talk a little bit about them. Then I want to cover some MO-theory. Some more pictures are coming. I will talk about theoretical aspects and proofs, too. Maybe someone's interested. It also helps me to get my thoughts straight if I write about it.
I guess I will see how people are going to like my blog. If I keep getting a few hits per day I'll probably keep writing. Thanks for recently adding my link to a very decent chemist with a cool blog and thanks to some ingenious muppets who aside from adding my link will soon resolve all my problems about fitting together ground-glass joints of different sizes.
 It might be just statistical deviation that we had almost no snow so far. But in a materialistic world I needed a catchy phrase to get your attention .
 I am sorry for everyone who may have been caught in a snow storm in the US or London or anyone else who has had bad weather conditions. That is of course much worse.
 In spite of the fact that Austria's snowless mountains may not be caused by the greenhouse effect, I am still worried by it. Here is my suggestion to anyone reading this: Try taking your bike to work for once. Not only is it good for the environment and cheaper but it is also nice for athletic reasons .
 To be honest: I stole the idea of making footnotes of footnotes from carbon-based curiosities. But the idea of making footnotes of footnotes of footnotes I just came up with myself.
