My changing arxiv.org habits. I used to read astro-ph, hep-ph, hep-th, gr-qc. Dropped hep-ph a couple of years ago. Reduced astro-ph to astro-ph.co when that became an option, and now I’ve dropped even that. Picked up quant-ph and cond-mat.stat-mech. Times change.

I love all physics, but these days I'm more interested in general patterns than specific models.
