Curly Arrow update

Apologies for the infrequent posting. I'm very happy to see that people keep coming to the blog despite this. So what's my excuse this time? Well I just started a new job. I have left academia (for now) and I'm working in a medium size biotech company doing some traditional medicinal chemistry to cure the world etc. However, I have been made an adjunct research fellow at the university and continue to supervise some students so I still have a foot inside the academia door. Also I have become a regular writer for the chemistry magazine published by the Danish Chemical Society which is quite exiting. Unfortunately this only gets published in danish so it won't be of interest to most of you guys. What's even more cool is that they have agreed to set up a blog on the magazines web page where the articles will also be published.
I'd like to thank people for the many emails I get with interesting questions and requests for paper reprints. Thanks for taking an interest. Curly Arrow has now been running for 1 year and seems to be a fairly popular blog (see some stats below). I've even reached the point where people are offering me money to place adds on the blog (You have to pay a lot more guys if you even want me to reply to those emails) and I have been blessed with lots of spam comments linking to porn sites (the pinnacle of my career). I almost clicked on cucumber sex to see what cucumber variety would be employed. D!
