After a hiatus of nearly a year, I am finally moving Bootstrap Analysis to a new web host, and will eventually begin posting here again, although not as regularly as before.

Crap. I knew this would get to me eventually. An interesting animal I had. This is easy. I’ve had a lot of interesting animals. But probably the coolest were the two flying squirrels I rescued from a pet store which…

Last year, the web site of the journal Nature posted a list of 50 popular science blogs, and bootstrap made the list. Now the weekly magazine The Scientist is also compiling a list. I see at least one kind soul…
