There you will find fascinating essays on a variety of subjects related to virology. My thanks to Crof at Crofsblog for turning me onto this terrific resource.
Recent blogs include:

For somewhat over six months, Professor Racaniello has been conducting a weekly videotaped panel discussion of the latest news, and studies, of interest to virologists and other scientists.
At the urging of a good friend (thanks Indigo girl), I took an hour today to watch the latest edition (episode #33), and I’m glad I did.
This is a fascinating hour, which covered everything from CMV (Cytomegalovirus) and its possible role in hypertension, to the West Nile Virus, to Swine flu. The panelists also take questions from a live audience and from the Internet.

Now, the only problem is I have roughly 32 hours of videos to catch up with.
To catch up go to http://www.twiv.tv/.
Highly recommended for disease geeks everywhere.
