The future home of Respectful Insolence…

…is right here.

Right now, Orac is busily transferring content from the old blog to this shiny new location. Regular readers can probably tell, given that as of today there is currently nowhere near twelve years worth of material here. When I’m ready to turn turn out the lights at the old blog completely and make this the new official home of that Respectful (and not-so-Respectful) Insolence that only Orac can lay down, I’ll post an announcement both here and at the old blog. I expect that it will be several days, if not a couple of weeks, before that happens.

In the meantime, while I’m transferring, there won’t be any new material. Even Orac has his limits.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

Well, let’s see how this works…



Ohhhh, I like the expanding text entry box. It ain’t preview, but it ain’t bad.

Website, and not location, eh? What happens if…????

Test comment. I didn’t see any links on the front page to post comments, so I tried following one of your post links, and there it was at the bottom of the page.

I hope you get the kinks worked out and back to posting soon.

Yeah it’s gonna take a ‘lil while for me to get used to this. It’s a bit weird after so long at SciBlogs.
