Just had my attention drawn to this: http://www.sfgate.com/education/article ... 125879.php

Looks like a win. Well done, John. I still remember the arguments when you came up with this--what was it, ten years ago? Fifteen? Anyway, seems like you were right, and you did some good work with it.

I missed that! Well, that is a much-appreciated ray of sunshine in what has been a pretty dismal couple of months. (Sandra's had a series of R01 and other grant applications go down in flames and she's going to have to start shooing postdocs out the door as fast as they can find jobs. It's been, well, dismal.)

Sorry to hear that, John; hope it turns around. And I agree with Phil: good work.
