I'm on a roll this week. I've been banging my head against a piece of code the past couple of days—until four o'clock Thurs, when my officemate and I went down for tea. One coffee and a Cornetto™ later, back at my desk, I nailed the bug. And I've just got back from a curry in London with a couple of old lab mates. One of them is going to set her research assistant onto an experiment I suggested as soon as she moves to her new lab in Sweden.
