Re: Democratic presidential contenders in 2016

That's because these talented people are busy debugging the infamous >1GB monolithic binary written in multiple languages, including C and Fortran. Also, Bloomberg's selling point is not the quality of models (even though for many simple uses they're absolutely fine), but data. It used to be also B...

Re: Democratic presidential contenders in 2016

Didn't Peter Carr do a stint there? I must say, (apart from being able to rapidly rotate 3D vol surface diagrams around) the quantitative power of their product always struck me as limited given the talent available. But then again I have a strong aversion to software where you need to know an arcan...

thanks for the detailed reply!  My copy landed on the doormat today, so hopefully will know more about the style soon. A provocative and controversial radical vegan! Perfect!

Re: Who was the greatest 20th century novelist?

New Wave sci-fi to sci-fi is like modern science to science. Hi Katastrofa I have recently seen a few rave reviews of Olga Tokarczuk's Drive your plow [sic] over the bones of the dead that seems to have just been published in English translation.  Looks fascinating stuff. As the local expert in CEE...

The wives and significant others of Wilmott Forum are welcome on this thread.  Just think - if all of them saw this invitation and became members, it would nearly double the size of the community.  Double the size?

Yeah, tw should definitely think twice. Indeed! If I wanted to turn criminal late in life it might limit my options    ;) I wonder if I could get the sequencing done under a false ID?

Re: ATATTCATAATcATCTATATGA

Thanks very much! That seems very cheap.  Surely it can't be  whole genome sequencing (6x10^9 base pairs) at that price? Dante labs  seem to have whole genome sequencing for around 350 EUR with average 100x coverage and with " Raw data available (VCF and   BAM, free of charge)"  which looks quite ch...
