I battled with the network, but it won Connections got lost, messages got scrambled and the operating systems had bugs.

I will keep working on it and one day ...


I have started work at the Genome Sequence Centre, which falls under the auspices of the BC Cancer Agency. We've got a computer lab, populated largely by computation biologists. Then there's a regular biology lab with sequencers and other machines and test tubes and I haven't really looked around it that much but I suspect that they have bunzen burners.

Work looks like it should be quite enjoyable. The databases are complex and there is a massive flow of data and problems. I have started work on the sequence database front end - it generates reports and historgrams based on the performance of the sequencing machines.

Mehrdad works there - I'm going to kill him :)
