Hello all!

Yeah, I've got Putty on my machine at my old place (which I get to use once every two weeks), but it's configured for SF.  In between, I log on at a net cafe (like right now).  That's mon petit problem...

I've got lots of code here, but haven't found the time to organize them.  There are a few modifications to the Seq object, but nothing I'd call major really.  I'm contemplating posting them as HTML while I'm away from my CPU with WinCVS and Putty.

Hehe, yeah, that would be nice...

The image that comes to mind by reading the above is that some people engaged in some debate on the merits of using PHP vs Python for bioinformatics.  So what really happened, Greg?  =)
