Don't seem to have got very much done this week -- possibly due to having to give several presentations in quick succession. I guess the good side of this is that I should have to present anything else for some time to come. Or at least, that's the theory.

Software: Just got a new build of Mozilla running on my alpha box, and it rocks. Last month, it was dying horribly in hard-to-pin-down 64-bit-only ways. Now it seems as stable as it is on my Linux/intel machine. Well, I guess this means the end of my happy (yeah, right) relationship with Netscape Classic.

I've also been experimenting with a development snapshot of PostgreSQL. Specifically, the new 7.1 feature which finally removes the block-size limit for table rows. I can now happily dump hundreds of kilobytes of genome sequence into normal `text' attributes with no fiddling at all.
