Here's a recent post from my personal blog:

Heard that GitHub will be acquired by Microsoft, so I deleted all my GitHub repos
June 4, 2018 (plus later additions), from Astroblahhh.Com


And an even more recent post by me from Non24.com:

So, that's why I won't be hosting the Eryss astrology software on GitHub.

Instead, someday, I will probably host it here on Eryss.Com.

Those posts also contain details about what I'm working on (or have been tempted to work on) instead of the Eryss astrology software.


There actually have been times when I was strongly tempted to work on Eryss despite far more pressing and important-seeming projects.

So, I really can't be sure what I might soon decide to do (or not do) with Eryss. It seems probable that I'll continue to be more focused on other things, but, even I don't know for sure.


I welcome donations and microdonations.

Link: "How Jupiter May Have Gifted Early Earth With Water"

Astronomy

Amusingly, astronomy sometimes seems to echo astrology, such as by saying things like Jupiter is a protector and gives gifts to us here on Earth. :-)

How Jupiter May Have Gifted Early Earth With Water
June 20, 2018 from SmithsonianMag.com


However, the other gas giants may have helped us as well (astronomically speaking). Even Saturn!

Quote:

"The new model suggests that any gas giant would send wet material hurling inward as a consequence of their formation. While massive Jupiter-sized worlds were the most effective, Raymond found that any sized gas giant could trigger the growth. That's good news for researchers hunting watery planets outside our solar system.

In our own solar system, the model shows that ices from the outer solar system snowed down on the Earth in three waves. The first came as Jupiter swelled up. The second was triggered during Saturn's formation. And the third would have occurred when Uranus and Neptune migrated inward before being blocked by the other two and sent back to the outskirts of the solar system."
