Your trusted friend in Science

“Look at me still talking when there’s science to do
When I look out there it makes me glad I’m not you
I’ve experiments to run, there is research to be done
On the people who are still alive”

Yes, I’ve just finished Portal after probably 5 hours of play or so. I have to say it’s not the hardest puzzler I’ve ever come across, but I wonder if that was part of the point? The end credits are wonderful, reason enough to play the game through. After 19 test chambers, I was feeling quite a lot of animosity towards GLadOS, although I could have happily endured more test chambers in order to get the payoff. I suspect I will be doing the advanced maps as well in the near future.

Or maybe I will just finish off Mario Galaxy instead (or any one of the half dozen unfinished games I have laying around!)

Get your Medline indexed papers on your Facebook page!

Finally, a useful application on Facebook! Simply add this application, check the papers that it spits back as being yours, press ‘ok’ and voila – your Facebook page now looks like a gaudy CV!  You can also add papers by PMID if it doesn’t pick up your entire publication output.

Originally spotted on ‘What You’re Doing is Rather Desperate‘ a blog title that I have always loved being a bioinformatician who has to deal with biologists!
