[ getting back up to speed ]

Back from Seattle – a good time was had by all. Now I’m just struggling to catch back up with email, news, and the web. I’d almost made it, but then the work week had to start… 8^)

Big thanks to Cam for hooking me up with O'Reilly Online Evangelist Simone Paddock, and thanks to Simone for the copy of Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills. Look for a review once I get a chance to read it.

And while I'm at it, crypto-congrats to a couple of crazy 'net kids. Thanks for sharing your special moment with us.

If I were a rich man (which I'm not), and I wasn't concerned about offending people (which, umm, I'm mostly not), I'd send copies of this book to every upper-level Yahoo! exec I could get a snail mail address for. Maybe I'm just twisted.

Pioneer 10 is still alive. Damn, but we can build 'em...when we want to, and when we're allowed to.

hafta pay those bills...
I've got a bunch of other stuff backlogged, but it's getting to be time for me to head off to work, so I'm going to save it for another day...
